Family Gifts Car To Daughter's Boyfriend And It's Just As Emotional As You'd Expect

NBC 5

When a teenage girl finds her first serious boyfriend, you expect the parents (specifically the father) to give the boy one of a few things: a stern talking to, a warning, or possibly even a threat. What you wouldn't expect is for the parents to gift their daughter's boyfriend with an expensive present, but that is exactly what happened in Texas last month.

Sixteen-year-old Christian Hunter had been dating 17-year-old Madison Duke leading up to Christmas last year, when Duke's parents invited the young man out for lunch, but also told them they needed to make a quick stop somewhere else first. Little did Christian know that he was about to receive a truly life changing gift.

When they pulled into a parking area, the Duke family then handed Christian the keys to his new car. Christian being the humble young man that he is, at first tried to refuse the gift as being "too much." But after a little coaxing and a few tears, he graciously accepted. The video of the exchange has since gone viral, but not all people were as gracious about the situation as the Dukes.

The Duke's say that they spent six weeks saving up enough extra cash to be able to get Christian his 2005 Scion because he is such a "caring and genuine person."

There have been more than a fair share of people leaving racist comments on the video, and sending hateful messages to the Duke family, but they have been taking it in stride, knowing that there will always be those kind of people in the world. They are happy to have made such a difference in Christian's life, and it is obvious that he deserves it. Many young men would just be happy receiving a father's blessing when it comes to dating daughters.

Christian and Madison made a video for YouTube the day after the gift was given, and it is just as cute as you would imagine.

I bet every father wishes their daughters would find a man as caring and genuine as Christian.
