Great-grandmother Surprised With Baby Named After Her

A beloved grandma can’t hold back her tears of joy as she discovers her newborn great-granddaughter has been named after her. When Melissa Regner, 36, broke the news to her grandma Nancy, at St. Nicks Hospital, in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, the 86-year-old initially let out a stunned, "You're kidding me!" But then, as the reality of the situation hit Nancy, her hands began to tremble with shock and tears filled her eyes. She was then presented with baby Nancy – who Melissa had always intended to name after her grandma, even before her first child – a son named Casper who was named after his great, great grandpa – was born. The previous year had been tough on Nancy, Melissa said, adding to the emotion of the moment.
