The 24-year-old also posted a screenshot of an emotional text message she received from her grandma which she told her followers left her in tears.

"You were such a caring, loving little girl and have turned into such a beautiful woman," her grandma wrote.

"He would be so 'smugly' proud of you, saying, 'Hey, that's MY daughter.'"

Not gonna lie, I cried a little. I love you grams.
