First-time uncle wears suit to welcome niece
The story went viral on Twitter after Iris Kessler shared a photo of her brother on the evening of January 3, 2017. They were waiting together in the hospital as their older sister Olivia gave birth to a baby girl. The child is named Carter.
According to the 16-year-old aunt’s post, her brother believes that “first impressions matter.” This is why he decided to welcome his niece’s arrival in full suit and tie. He even had a tie clip, serious-looking eyeglasses, and neatly-groomed hair.
