Andrew and Alexis Prue were delighted to become new parents. However, days before Andrew became a dad, he lost
his own father. Now, on his birthday his wife got him a poignant gift: a custom-made picture of their daughter India with her grandpa!

In an unwrapping video, posted by Alexis on her TikTok and Instagram, her husband was seen unsuspectedly opening his birthday present. However, as he tore the gift wrap, he was seen breaking down the moment he saw a beautiful picture of his deceased father cradling his newborn.

The portrait was created by Instagram artist designbyshopium, a graphic designer who specialises in such works. Time and again the artist has created such images of people with their family members and friends, who have passed away, giving them a chance to realise an unthinkable dream.

From wedding days to graduation ceremonies, the visual artist’s work has gone viral several times before for pulling at people’s heartstrings.
