As he snuggles the baby to his chest, well... prepare for your heart to explode. Don't say we didn't warn you. The video — posted by family member Jason Zwolak on Facebook — has received over 15 million (yes, million!) views so far.

We're hoping Spring — aka "Pop" — gets at least another 10 years to spend with his great-grandson, because this duo is pretty wonderful already.
