VIDEO: This Grandpa Can’t Hold His Tears When He Discovers Baby Is Named After Him

An emotional grandfather couldn’t hold back his tears of happiness when he read his newborn grandson’s name tag to discover the baby had been named after him.

Mike Sheff, 63, had no idea what he was in for when he walked in to greet his daughter Jessie Way at Henrico Doctors Women’s Hospital in Richmond, Virginia.

Then, as he and his wife, Julie, 63, were looking at Jesse’s newborn son, Julie suddenly noticed a name: Michael Chief Way.

Not only did Jessie name her baby Michael, but his middle name, Chief, was her maiden name, which was lost when she – and her sister – married.

Jessie, 33, wanted the name to live on and as soon as Julie suggested Mike read the label, he immediately fell in love. According to Jessa, baby Michael arrived a few days early, so she and her husband Barrett, 35, kept the name a secret until her parents arrived from Oxford, Ohio.
