Uncle Wears Suit To Meet His Newborn Niece Because ‘First Impressions Matter’

Uncle of the Year, obviously.

Even though no one has memories from being a newborn, that didn’t prevent an Ohio man from putting his best suit forward when it was time to meet his niece on Tuesday. Iris Kessler – a teenager from Pickerington and the man’s sister – tweeted a photo of him wearing a shirt, tie and tie clip while in the hospital.

The 16-year-old has three siblings: brother Grant, and sisters Bronwen and Olivia. The family got bigger recently, after 23-year-old Olivia gave birth to a baby girl, Carter, on January 3.

And while the Kesslers waited at the hospital in Columbus to meet the new family member, the 18-year-old decided to show up in clothes he thought were fitting for the occasion: a suit and tie. Iris snapped the glorious photo of her well-dressed brother and shared it on Twitter.

Her post went viral quickly: it has been retweeted more than 70,000 times and garnered over 220,000 likes since yesterday. And it’s safe to say Carter’s uncle will forever be an Internet hero:
