In different parts of the world, Father’s Day is celebrated on different days, but most people honor their dads on the third Sunday in June. We never know what to get our dads as a gift to show how much we love them because they don’t need much and nothing seems good enough.

But all you need is a little bit of imagination. This woman on TikTok thought it would be cute to recreate some of her dad’s old photos and make a video for him to show how much they look alike.

TikToker lakynbowman, also known as Lakyn Bowman, is a 26-year-old woman from West Tennessee who runs a business to promote sustainability by turning things she finds at thrift stores into home decor.

The woman recreated her grandmother’s photos for her 71st birthday, and for Father’s Day, she decided to give her dad a similar gift.

She did her hair and makeup just like in the pictures because she wanted to surprise her grandmother. The granddaughter also found clothes that looked a lot like her grandmother’s and posed in the same way. If you want to learn more, click on this link.

This time, we’re going to look at the photo-recreation video she made for Father’s Day and gave to her dad. She again found clothes that looked the same and did her hair so that it looked like she had a short bob like her dad did when he was young. She did a great job with the poses, and the side-by-side photos show that these two people are definitely related.

Lakyn said in the video’s text that she was a little freaked out when she looked at old photos of her dad and saw how much she and her dad looked alike. It’s fascinating to see with your own eyes how genes work.

When the daughter learned how much she resembled her father as a child, she was shocked.

Even though it’s fun to see photos next to each other, the best part of this gift was the dad’s reaction. Lakyn posted a video of her dad’s first reaction to the montage. The dad was very emotional and couldn’t stop smiling.

The man saw his jersey and coat and was proud of how well his daughter had done. In fact, he liked the video so much that he wanted to watch it again and again.

When Lakyn asked her dad which of the recreations he liked best, he said, “I like all of them.” But the one where she was wearing a red jacket was his favorite because that was the jacket he was wearing in that picture.

The dad also gave a bit more information about the picture of him wearing a blue shirt. He was a cheerleader for a while because he couldn’t play more than two basketball games on the weekend. He asked if he could attend the game as a cheerleader instead.

The dad said that he remembered all of the pictures, and when he talked about the sports he used to play, you could see the nostalgia in his eyes. He also said that he misses his dark hair a lot now that it is turning silver.

He noticed that Lakyn has his eyebags, and they both agreed that Lakyn is definitely her father’s child. Lakyn said she was really excited to do this because she couldn’t understand why her face looked so much like her dad’s.

She made a video for her mom on Mother’s Day before she surprised her dad with it. She isn’t sure if she looks like her mother, but she has heard that she does from other people. With the power of makeup, clothes, poses, and filters, it would be hard to believe that the two women are not friends.

The mom’s response was just as good as the dad’s. She was happy with the result and told Lakyn that she had taken the picture of the swing in the park, even though Lakyn couldn’t remember that because she was so young.
