Dad’s Worst Nightmare: Teenage Daughter Gets ‘Engaged’ to HS Sweetheart (But It’s a Prank)

Getting married might be exciting but it is not a decision that one should take so lightly because marriage will definitely change your life. For this reason, most parents want their kids to first finish their studies and have a stable job before they get married and start a family.

One dad recently went viral for his despairing reaction after his daughter got “engaged” to her high school sweetheart at the family’s front porch. But take note of the quotation marks there because it was really just a prank for April Fools’ Day.

Teenage girl Savannah Ajas shared on Twitter a video taken by her mother of the cutesy proposal her boyfriend did at their front porch. But the star of the moment was really her dad; he was the only one who wasn’t in on the prank.

As Savannah’s boyfriend dropped to one knee and popped the big question, a look of disbelief crossed Dad Andre’s face.

He must have been thinking, “She’d better not say, ‘Yes!’

Dad Andre’s shoulders drooped and his face registered shock as his daughter excitedly accepted the marriage proposal and was now jumping and down in delight. Ouch. This is truly every dad’s nightmare.

As the high school love birds gushed over their new ‘status’, Dad Andre was trying his best to contain his emotions and not cry. While he certainly didn’t have the heart to ruin the moment for these two, he was unsure of what to do next.

In utter despair, he looked out of the porch but refused to say anything. He was still looking so glum when his daughter shrieked, “April fools!” LOL. This was certainly the best prank they’ve pulled off for April Fools’ Day.

Of course, it nearly gave Dad Andre a heart attack but we’re willing to bet he was only too happy to learn it was nothing but a prank. Whew!
