A tweep shared a heart-warming story about his beautiful daughter and how she grew up right in front of his eyes.
Pheli Shabalala, the father to a teenage girl, shared how his daughter flourished into a beautiful young lady even after her mother passed away while she was still a young girl.
“She was invited to a sweet 16 party last year and I thought what the heck. Let me spend the money for the dress and shoes. Hell I even let her go to clicks for what ladies call a face beat. When she was done I couldn't believe it's the same girl who lost her mother at 4 years old”, he wrote on Twitter.
Tweeps were impressed by the father’s efforts to raise such a stunning young lady even without the woman who gave birth to her.
“Sooooo cute! She looks so very happy. LOVE the dress ❤️”, @taraosborne commented on social media.
Other tweeps just told the proud father told his followers his daughter would be turning 16 in August.
“Whenever people ask me about staying with a child as a man especially a teenage girl I'm always honest. It's not easy but I'd do it a hundred times over if I had to again.”, he wrote.
