A video of a grandmother choosing to save a glass of champagne over her falling grandchild has sparked a fierce debate online.

The woman, who is believed to be from the US, can be seen making a split-second decision when her grandchild grabs her glass of champagne and it and the child fall.

She then has to decide who to save, and she chooses the champagne.

As per the Mirror, the video, which was originally posted to Imgur, was captioned: "And Grandmother of the year award goes to..."

Watch the moment the woman saves the champagne instead of the baby below: 

When the woman notices that the toddler has taken hold of the glass, she attempts to grab it without losing any of its precious contents, but she does so unsuccessfully, and as half the drink spills out, she removes her hand which was supporting the child.

Needless to say, the tot inevitably falls to the floor.

Footage of the incident was subsequently posted to Twitter with the caption: "When you've finally become an adult and have your priorities straight," where it has been watched over seven million times.

While some people criticized the grandmother for letting the child fall, others claimed that she did the right thing and that by grabbing the glass, she prevented a more serious injury from happening to the tot.

One of the grandmother's defenders wrote: "To be fair, if the glass broke that could have seriously hurt the baby [sic]."

A second agreed writing: "If the glass fell with the baby, it would have broken and the baby would have been hurt. She did I [sic] the right thing."

However, some people simply interpreted the grandmother's actions as irresponsible.

One Twitter user shared a picture of a woman smiling as she throws a baby up into the air.

A second wrote: "She. Was. Holding. Up. The. Baby. If the glass was already gone, she should have kept holding the baby. Neither would have been an issue if she had some control over the toddler grabbing a glass of alcohol. She did literally all the worst things. Yes everyone survived [sic]."

Meanwhile, a third remarked: "Why she let the baby get that close to the glass in the first place? like the baby had ahold of it and everything [sic]."

In other baby news, Nancy Hauck, a 56-year-old grandmother, has given birth to her own granddaughter after offering to be a surrogate for her son, Jeff Hauck, 32, and his wife, Cambria, 30. This remarkable act of love and sacrifice has brought a unique and awe-inspiring twist to their family story.

The journey began when Cambria, an owner of a dance studio, faced a hysterectomy following the traumatic birth of their twins, Vera and Ayva, now three, and another set, Diseal and Luka, 11 months, all conceived through IVF. The couple had endured a challenging six-year struggle with infertility before their twins arrived.

Determined to expand their family, Nancy, an administrator from St. George, Utah, stepped forward, driven by an unshakable feeling that she should carry her own grandchild.

Despite initial doubts about her age, Nancy was surprised when medical professionals confirmed that she could indeed be a gestational carrier. The family embarked on hormone treatments in January 2022, leading to the successful transfer of a fertilized embryo in February of the same year.

Nancy, filled with anticipation at the time, shared that she did not think she would be able to fall pregnant at her age, but said the pregnancy was not too different to when she carried her own son.

For Cambria and Jeff, this journey has been nothing short of miraculous.
