At first, both Ashley and Aubree are just casually listening to the song — but when the lyrics start to sink in, her little girl breaks down in tears.

And upon reading the lyrics to the song — “My Girl” by Elvie Shane — it’s no wonder why it brought them both to tears!

“She ain’t got my smile, that don’t bother me a bit / She’s got somebody else’s eyes I’m seeing myself in / I’m holding on to every moment, God knows I’ve missed a few / The day we met I knew I had some catching up to do…

“She ain’t my blood, ain’t got my name / But if she did, I’d feel the same / I wasn’t there for her first steps / But I ain’t missed the ball game yet / And that ain’t ever gonna change / I could never walk away / Yeah, she’s my baby, my whole world / She ain’t my blood but she’s my, she’s my girl…”

In response to Ashley’s emotional video, some TikTokers were confused about their family situation. 

Ashley explained in the comments, “Aubree still has her bio mom! She is blessed with TWO. Yes we all get along. We all LOVE her.” 

She clarified in another comment, “I promise she’s happy! She’s got both her mom and myself, her dad and her step dad.”

Ashley’s family is so blended and healthy, even Aubree’s biological mom, Stevie, left a loving comment. “I couldn’t have asked for a better woman to become my daughter’s stepmom! Now she has 2 strong women who love & protect her!”

To this, Ashley warmly replied, “Hey gf! I’m so happy to hear that moms can come together and be as one for our kids. Keep on being you, both of you!”
