Misty Nicole King, from Illinois, has captured the moment she asked the man who raised her to officially become her dad. 

The three-and-a-half-minute video has been viewed over 22 million times and shared by more than 18,000 people in just three days. 

In the video, Misty is seen handing Ryan (who we gather is married to Misty’s mum, Nicole) a present with a note stuck to it, asking him to read it out. 

Ryan is reluctant at the start, worrying that whatever the gift is, will make him cry. 

But Misty convinces him to read the letter: 


I just want you to know that you are the most amazing man I have ever met. You’ve raised me my whole life, from putting my hair in tight Princess Leia buns, forging my signature in fifth grade, jamming out to alternative music, going on Warped Tour and even our first rock concert together, leading up to us laughing at cats wearing leggings. I know we are so weird together, but that’s what makes you you, and I cannot imagine not having you in my life. I’m so grateful to be able to call you Dad. You’re probably wondering what this letter is for – well, open the damn present already! PS. This is bigger than Batman vs. Superman, bigger than  how Kylo Ren kills Han Solo – spoiler alert! Alright, I’m impatient – open the box already. It’s OK to cry.

Once Ryan finishes opening up the box of gifts, there is an official document at the bottom… petition for adoption pages. 

After getting emotional (as he expected!) and giving Misty a big hug, he says, “God, I’ve been wanting to do that forever”.
