Parents do amazing, selfless things for their children every day, but Philip Brady, a parent of two from Dallas, only took parenting to a whole new level of awesome: Simply over a month ago, Philip divorced his wife Debra and marriage a far younger girl so his children could have a mom closer to their age.
Yep, it looks like Philip just became the world’s greatest dad.
For 19 years, Philip was married to a woman named Debra, who was a staggering 33 years older than Philip’s children, Jackson and Heather. The age difference between Philip’s children and their mother was enormous. But then Philip satisfied Katie, a far younger woman than Debra, and in an inspiring act of fatherly love, Philip immediately divorced Debra and married Katie instead! Now his kids have a mom who use Snapchat and grew up watching Nicktoons on Tv, just like them!
Even after a few short weeks, Philip’s decision to marry a woman who’s only a few years older than his children has already made an incredible change in their lives. Since Katie was a teenager herself only a couple of years ago, she shares nearly all of Jackson and Heather’s interests and understands all of their pop culture references! The days of Philip’s children having to tediously explained who Harry Styles is to their middle-aged mama are over! Now they have a new, far more youthful mom, and when they talk about the latest Taylor Swift song or the first season of Riverdale , she understands exactly what they’re talking about! And when Philip’s daughter needs advice about dating sons in her high school or the stresses of applying for college, she can now confide in her new mommy, because Philip was generous enough to marry a woman who only graduated from high school three years ago and can altogether relate to what his daughter “ve been through”! It’s just one of the perks you get when your dad weds a woman who’s pretty much the same age as you!
Way to go, Philip! Your decision to marry a woman who’s approximately the same age as your kids is a beautiful and inspiring gift for your children. We couldn’t be more jealous of Jackson and Heather for having the best dad in the world!
