This Latina Daughter Found Her Mother’s Stash Of Hidden Flowers That Brought People To Tears

You know those scripted fairytale love stories that are supposed to restore your faith in romance but are so obnoxiously unbelievable? Well, this is sort of like that, except it’s based on reality, stars a Latinx couple and may actually make you shed a tear.

On Monday, Rocio Andujo tweeted about her parents’ love story. The 21-year-old from Texas shared that her mom and dad, Rosalia and Robert, have been together for 27 years. Like any good romantic drama, their love affair started with friction. Dad, the playboy of the block, was head over heels for mom, who knew better than to give the player any play — until she did.

“My mom always knew my dad was a ladies’ man & wouldn’t really take any girl serious so she always rejected him… because she didn’t want to be just another girl on his list (her words),” Rocio, who works as a server while attending college, said, according to BuzzFeed.

She continued: “After a year & months of my dad chasing after my mom & trying to get a chance with her she finally gave him a chance since she saw that he kept insisting and insisting even after she would reject him.”

Apparently, her pops was sprung, and everyone around them took notice.

“Everyone could see how in love my dad was with my mom and everyone would get surprised because they had never seen my dad so in love with a girl before,” Rocio wrote.

But Robert wasn’t the only one all heart-eyes in the relationship. Rocio discovered something recently that proves that her mom has been equally enamored all these years: a collection of all the flowers that Robert gave Rosalia during all the years they were boyfriend and girlfriend.

“No one knew my mom had kept those flowers. She also still has the first bouquet of roses he gave her,” Rocio said.

Even Robert was surprised to see his wife had held onto the flowers all these years later. “He was so shocked and happy,” Rocio said of her father.

As you can imagine, the Internet had a lot of feels about Rocio’s parents and her mother’s hidden momentos. Many shared images of the flowers they kept from loved ones over the years as well.


Rocio said, “[Of] all of the marriages I’ve seen my parents are one of my favorites,” and we can totally understand why.
