Teen goes to prom with her Grandpa

Teen goes to prom with her Grandpa

April 30, 2019



One California teenager’s prom turned into a sweet family memory after her grandfather learned she didn’t have a date for the high-school milestone.


Lancaster High School student Kaylah Bell, 17, shared the sweet story via Twitter on Sunday, writing, “My papa knew I didn’t have a date to my prom so he matched me !!”


Attached to the tweet are frame-worthy photos of the adorable duo in coordinating looks: While Bell dazzled in a patterned pink, purple and blue gown and purple cape, Alvin Hackett, 67, rocked a blue pinstripe suit, accented with a pink tie and pocket square.


Bell and Hackett beamed with big smiles in the images — and the internet also felt the love.


Bell also received praise, with one commenter saying "this dress is gorgeous and you look beautiful."


Opening up about her initially challenging prom preparation, Bell told Yahoo Lifestyle, “I was talking to some people, but they all flaked out. It was really hard to find someone to commit to being my prom date.”



The outlet reports Bell wasn’t stressed because she could count on her grandfather.


“My grandpa was the only one that I knew would dress to impress,” Bell shared. “So, I had asked him to take pictures with me.”
