Dad And Daughter Re-created His Graduation Photo From 18 Years Ago—And The Result Is So Sweet

Tori Roach graduated from high school in May 2018. She celebrated her achievement with a special side-by-side photo display on Twitter.

A portrait of her as a baby in the arms of her father, Dennis, on his high school graduation day 18 years prior is on the left.

On the right, she’s in her father’s arms again, this time as an 18-year-old graduating senior.

The touching homage went viral and was retweeted thousands of times.

The tweet is making the rounds again a year later, as graduation season is in full force around the country.

Take a look:

Roach added, “18 years later,” with a graduation cap and a heart emoji. How cute!

People on Twitter praised their father-daughter relationship.

“This is fantastic. Congratulations” user @FarhanIjaz87 wrote:


“This is beautiful,” agreed @nnwigene:

Others recognized Dennis’s attractiveness 18 years ago, and still do today.

@sidluvscats, a Twitter user, even inquired if Roach was looking for a stepmother:

Roach, on the other hand, crushed the inquirer’s hopes by informing her that her father is married:

“For those who are curious, yes, he is my father, he is 37, and no, he is not single… “I’m expecting another sibling.”

Roach was astounded when she learned how much attention her tweet had gotten.

“I awoke to a flurry of notifications… People began sharing, like, and commenting all over again,” she said of her second bout of viral popularity to People.

“My father was ecstatic,” she continued. “Being from a tiny town, nothing like this happens very often.” “That’s really cool!” he exclaimed.

The Roaches are from Huntsville, Texas, and both father and daughter are Huntsville High School grads.

Tori now attends Sam Houston State University in their hometown, and she hopes to recreate the epic photo with her father when she graduates in 2022.

What a brilliant idea!
