“Honor student in math and English, straight A’s, equestrian, surfer…,” Braeden expressed and shared a beautiful photo of his special girl. “I’m [a] proud grandfather!”

Wow, talk about a smart and talented girl!

His Twitter followers quickly commented with their congrats and Eva Wood stated, “Wonderful! You have every reason to be proud, grandpa. She’s lovely and smart. Great genes, I’m sure,” as Tammy added, along with an excellent point, “Congratulations! Eric that is so awesome! Congratulations to [the] parents as well. Parents raising children nowadays with everything going on is hard. The parents did a wonderful job. And your granddaughter should be so proud of herself too!”
