Sure, your parents or your grandparents have a social media account. But to be Internet-famous is a whole other matter—and is something that elderly man Geoffrey Walker achieved unknowingly.
It was a tweet that brought netizens’ attention to the account, but even the Twitter user did not expect the level of attention it received:
This old man I know always posts insta’s of his wife and they’re so sweet bless him😂😭 pic.twitter.com/CiyaWG8pa7

All Geoffrey did was post heartfelt captions with photos of his wife, and the entire Internet melted. His Instagram account now has over 22,000 followers, which millennials would tell you is no mean feat.
Geoffrey’s Instagram is full of photos of his Pauline at home or out and about, doing things like “elevenses” (we’re not sure what it is, but we want to join in):
Many have been swooning over how in love he still is with Pauline:
Geoffrey enjoys using heart emojis, and rightly so with the love that he has:
He documents her creative work, like in this video where she folds paper hedgehogs:
Internet users have dubbed them as “couple goals,” and now want their own Geoffrey:
