Adorable husband becomes the green pinky for his wife to lean on

Get ready to feel all the feelings.

“I was painting my nails and made a comment that I forget I don’t have to paint my pinky nail on my left hand,” she wrote. “I simply forget that I lost my pinky, but it is always kind of a bummer when I am reminded.”

So her husband, Matt, did something any good husband would do — he volunteered to be her finger.
“Matt said ‘I will be your surrogate pinky. You can paint my pinky to match your nails for the rest of our lives.’ And so we did,” she added.

The simple, sweet gesture was a no-brainer for Matt. “She told me how odd it is to not have a pinky and she looked a little disappointed,” he told New York magazine. “I didn’t think about it, I just wanted to make her happy, so I offered up mine in its place.”

Men, take note.

“This is who I married,” Libby wrote on Facebook. “I cannot image a sweeter, kinder man. No words adequately describe our love.”
