Imagine discovering you have a daughter you never knew about, and then being asked to walk her down the aisle at her wedding. That's exactly what happened to Matt, who was contacted by his long-lost daughter, Jenny, eight years ago. After getting to know her and her family, including her stepdad, Jim, Matt was asked to walk Jenny down the aisle. But instead of accepting the honor, he refused, believing it wasn't fair to Jim, who raised Jenny since she was a toddler. Now, the internet is buzzing about whether Matt's decision was heartwarming or heartbreaking. 😢💔
