When His Dad Died He Was Left With A Few Shirts, He Wore One To A Date With His Mom And Her Reaction Is Everything
In Latino families, a love between a mother and son is solid as a rock. Sometimes a little too much. The term mama’s boy transcends all cultures, but either way, their bond is always genuine and from the heart. If you’d like a beautiful and heartfelt example of what this kind of relationship between a mother and son, look no further than this viral tweet from Texas.
Clayton Walker shared on Twitter that his dad died when he was just one year old. Now that he’s a grown man, he was finally big enough to fit into his dad’s shirt.
The young man from Fort Worth, Texas was clearly excited to wear his dad’s shirt for the first time as a grown man. He was so proud and excited to be able to fit in it completely, and he looks good in it, don’t you think? He said in his tweet that has since gone viral, “My father passed away when I was one and I only have a few shirts of his so I wore one for date night with my momma.”
Clayton knew one other person that would be just as proud to see him in his dad’s shirt, and, of course, that was his mother. He surprised her and her reaction was so touching!
“My father passed away when I was one and I only have a few shirts of his so I wore one for date night with my momma.”
“Aww,” his mom said with a huge grin. “What do you think?” he asked her.
“You look good,” she said but she was clearly getting emotional so Clayton hugged his mom to give her comfort.
Clayton’s tweet has been retweeted almost 200,000 times and like by more than 900,000 people.
Clayton addressed the massive attention — both good and bad — that he’s received and said on Twitter, “Just wanna say thank you to all the ones showing love fr fr and to the ones hating and claiming I’m chasing “clout” you don’t know me you WEIRDOS???? but regardless big blessings for everyone forever and good vibes por vida???????????? God bless.”
Yes, true to form, there were trolls on Twitter that displayed such hate and ignorance toward Clayton and his mom. They actually accused him of using his dad’s death as a way to get his tweet to viral.
“Just wanna say thank you to all the ones showing love…and to the ones hating and claiming I’m chasing ‘clout’ you don’t know me you WEIRDOS,” he added on Twitter.
Clayton went on to say that his mom’s his best friend and there’s nothing wrong with that.
And there isn’t! Imagine what it must like for his mom to lose her husband right when their family was becoming a family. It’s so sad, but some people on Twitter just have no love in their life, clearly.
Some women even shared on Twitter that a man like Clayton that is close to his mom is marriage material.
We totally agree with that. If a man is good to his mama, he will be good to his wife! One young woman didn’t even hide her thirst. She tweeted, “Can I go on a date with you?”
Some people shared their own stories about losing their fathers at a young age as well.
Nicole tweeted, “I can’t say it gets easier and you never forget, but you think of all the good things and it makes it a little better.”

We are impressed by the honesty and purity of this guy. He’s so sweet! Clayton tweeted that he didn’t care about all the negativity he got, because at the end of the day he knows his truth and that’s all that matters.
“There is always gonna be hate because some people are ugly and that’s okay but I’ve had so many beautiful comments full of love and my heart is full. Thank you, you beautiful people.”
