Two families in Forest Park, Georgia have risen to viral fame after snapping adorable photos of the puppy love shared by their kindergartners.
On Friday, 18-year-old Geornecia Jackson posted a few photos on Twitter of her little sister, 6-year-old Georiah, trading proud photos with her 6-year-old “boyfriend” Nick Hooge.
In the images, the two little lovebirds are all dressed up for their graduation ceremony. They beam at each other adorably and pose with the confidence of two teens headed to prom.
The post has since been retweeted over 70,000 times and the internet could not handle the cuteness, as you can see below.
Channel 2 caught up with Georiah’s mother, Angela, to ask about the pair’s puppy love. Jackson says her daughter and Nick live about 10 minutes apart in the same Forest Park subdivision and they spent the entire graduation ceremony side-by-side. Jackson caught the moment the pair borrowed their teacher’s phone to take the photos.
“She’s very fond of Nick and talks about him a lot,” Jackson said.
Jackson said her daughter is as confident as she looks in the photos. She said Georiah has an 18-year-old sister and a 16-year-old brother, so she’s very mature for her age.
“She’s different. Her vocabulary is on a third- or fourth-grade level and she loves to use big words,” Jackson laughs. “She may not pronounce them right, but she uses them.”
“For what?” Jackson asked her daughter.
“Because I got a number on a piece of paper,” Georiah said.
Their first date might have to wait about 10 years, but luckily, these two are headed to the same elementary school next year.
For now, the internet has crowned them the world’s cutest (kindergarten) couple.
