In a heartwarming moment, 98-year-old MaeDell Taylor Hawkins from Kentucky got to meet her first great-great-great-grandchild, seven-month-old Zhavia Whitaker, in February.
MaeDell, who will be turning 99 in July, has a massive family, with over 620 grandchildren between her daughters and their children.
A photo of the moment, featuring MaeDell alongside her daughter Frances Snow, granddaughters Gracie Snow Howell and Jacqueline Ledford, and great-great-granddaughter Jaisline Wilson, has gone viral after being posted by Gracie.
Speaking to People, Gracie mentioned that the moment was special because it was an all-girls affair. Despite a difficult life, including marrying a 50-year-old railroad worker at the age of 16 and raising a total of 13 children, MaeDell never complained, according to Gracie.
The photo of six generations of women is a testament to MaeDell’s love and support, which have led to generations of healthy and happy women and children.
Gracie also revealed that if everything goes according to plan, the family plans to get together in June to take another photo.
MaeDell has an astounding 106 grandchildren, 222 great-grandchildren, 234 great-great-grandchildren, and 37 great-great-great-grandchildren living across the United States, as reported by Fox News.
