So, 18-year old Vanessa decided to surprise him!
In her fancy, black floral dress, she drove all the way to Porterville where her dad was working in the family's fruit truck.
His reaction was priceless!
My dad was upset that he couldn’t see me on my prom day so I decided to surprise him..and let me just say, I love being his “güerita” 💗💗 pic.twitter.com/1d0SVkJQ51— VANE (@vanesssamace) April 29, 2018
After several hugs and photos, Vanessa, who attends Mission Oak High School in Tulare... headed off to her prom.
She posted the video to Twitter over the weekend and it already has close to 3 million views!
