Women Are Going Crazy For This ‘Handsome Grandpa’s’ 1950 Photo

Derek Schwendeman never thought that a 1950 photo of his grandfather would go viral, but it has  and for good reason!

He posted the photo on the website Imgur, and in five days, it has been viewed almost 2.5 million times. The caption reads, “My Grandfather in 1950 before deploying to Korea.”

But it’s not just the sheer number of views that is so telling about why this photo is so popular. If you take a look at the comments, you realize that the women everywhere have come to a consensus: this is one handsome grandpa!

In fact, women everywhere are swooning over the now-86-year-old father of three and grandfather of six.

The lucky man even has a great-grandchild on the way! He and his wife have been happily married for the past 65 years, since before the Korean war.

Whether it be his charming smile or the glimmer in his eyes, we totally understand why women are swooning over him  we can’t stop staring! One commenter even asked, “Is he single?”

Another hilariously reads, “Does he have any grandchildren? You know, male grandchildren? Asking for a friend…”

This has even prompted others to posts pictures of their handsome grandfathers online  and we love seeing these pictures!

If you agree that this man was very handsome, too, please SHARE!
