In the video, you can hear Ayla’s nan in the background asking her grandpa a question.

He replies: “Wait until I’ve done this. I’ve got an important job at the moment.”

He then goes on to ask her how many coats she has on her nails.

It’s safe to say that the nation has fallen in love and well aware of her grandpa’s new status, Ayla shared other absolutely adorable facts about him.
