Grandpa Surprised With Grandson He Was Yet To Meet

A dad was left stunned after his daughter traveled cross country to surprise him with the one-year-old grandson he was meeting for the very first time. Frank Pandolfini, 59, was having a day like any other at home in Maryland, with no idea his daughter Jenn, who lives in Pahrump, Nevada, had a huge surprise planned. Due to COVID-19, Jenn, a stay-at-home mom, hadn’t seen Frank in over a year which meant he had never met his one-year-old grandson Ryder. So, when the time came, she worked with her siblings Lindsay, Kelsy and Frank Jr. to plan a surprise reunion four months in the making. On the day of the reunion, July 31 2021, retired mechanic Frank was in their family garage when he turned round to notice some familiar faces walking his way. As Jenn, holding Ryder, and with her other four children Marissa, Nevaeh, Makayla, and Chris headed towards him a stunned Frank was left wide eyed and open mouthed and could only ask “What are you doing here?” as he processed the surprise.
