這就是為什么這段故事風靡世界的原因...

Dad:
爸爸發來短信說:

Your mom basically asks me to marry her. We both thought it would be funny to tell our friends since no one would believe it. So at first our engagement was a joke.
你媽媽直接就跟我說讓我娶她。我們兩個人當時都覺得把這件事告訴朋友會很有趣,因為沒有人會相信。所以一開始我們的訂婚就是個笑話。

Two weeks later I was absolutely?madly?in love with your mother. She was more than a dream come true for me. You guys only see her as R2D2. I get to see her as my best friend, my hilarious wife, and my beautiful queen when we get the chance to be away from here and work.
不過,兩周后我就幾近瘋狂地愛上了你的媽媽。愛上她對于我來說,簡直比夢想成真還高興。你們可能只是把她看作是一個R2D2(一個典型的機智、勇敢、而又魯莽的宇航技工機器人)。但當我們有機會遠離生活雜事和工作的時候,我在她身上看到的是我最好的朋友、我逗逼的妻子和美麗的皇后。

You’ve probably seen the great side of mommy while alone with her at tourneys…idk?
你可能已經在她獨自參加比賽的時候見識過了你媽媽偉大的一面…其實我也不清楚?

Married a year later. Had Brytt, first child? A daddy’s girl, made me cry. Had Q, my son and future and the future of the Willoughby name, plus someone I could teach to be a man. But … your mom wanted another and I didn’t at first.
婚后一年。有了Brytt,我們的第一個孩子?因這是爸爸的第一個女兒,這讓我激動得哭了出來。之后有了Q,這是我的兒子和未來的兒子與威洛比的名字,也是以后我可以將他撫養成人的人的名字。不過……你媽媽想要另一個孩子,而我起初并不想要。

I’ll admit at that time l was working days and going to school at night and weekends. Mommy was working nights so we were sort of having a rough time. Not seeing enough of each other.
我承認那段時間我一直忙于工作,晚上和周末的時候都要去上學。你媽媽那時候也要上晚班,導致那段時間我們過得非常辛苦。甚至沒有足夠的時間見面。

So you were the way to bring us back together. Didn’t know it at the time but you changed our lives. We chose to have mommy quit working. By doing so, l lost R2D2 and got back my truly perfect wife.
所以是你的出現把我們又拉攏在了一起。但當時沒有意識到,后來才發現是你改變了我們的生活。我們達成了一致讓你媽媽辭職。做出這樣的決定后,R2D2機器人般的妻子消失了,而那個真實的完美的妻子又回到了我的身邊。

It allowed us to focus on each other and our finally complete family. l also had to go to school for three months. Being away from your mom and my kids ripped the heart out of me. l couldn’t live without R2D2 even though l love my funny queen so much more.
這讓我們又把生活重心放在彼此身上,我們完整的家庭也變得越來越有凝聚力。而我依然需要在那三個月里去學校工作。在離開你媽媽去工作的那段時間里,我的心始終緊緊地牽掛著你們。即使我更愛那個有趣的她,我卻無法離開像R2D2一般無所不能的妻子。

Bottom line, we fell into each other’s lap under odd circumstances but it resulted in the coolest family ever. You three kids are our?personalities?all?wrapped?up. Our heart, soul, humor, kindness, respect, integrity and a million other neat stuff about us. We would not be the same without everyone we have.
結果是,我們都在奇怪的情況下,拜倒在了對方的石榴裙下,但這也成就了我們這樣一個最酷的家庭。你們三個孩子的性格完滿地包涵了我跟你們媽媽的性格。我們的心,靈魂,幽默,善良,尊重他人,正直和其他很多優點。沒有彼此,我們就不會有如此多的共同點。

And it keeps growing. l’ve had the perfect life because of your mom. A perfect life. Give me 1 billion dollars. Make the Dallas Cowboys quarterback. Make me president. None of those would be worth of without her. She doesn’t just without her. She doesn’t just “complete me” she came into my life when l was young and immature, completed me and then made me so much better of a person. l dated and married an angel.
而且這種共同點在不斷變多。有了你媽媽的陪伴,我擁有了完美的生活。一個真正美好的生活。即使給我十億美元,即使讓我成為達拉斯牛仔隊的四分衛,或是讓我成為總統,若是沒有她,這對我來說都毫無意義。沒有她我就什么都不是。她不只在我年輕還未成熟的時候走進了我的生活“讓我的生活更完整”,也使我成為了一個更好的人。我與你媽媽約會,并最終娶到了這樣一位天使。

"Hearing this from my dad about my mom made me cry," Sydney wrote on T-witter. "27 years of marriage."
“聽到爸爸敘述的關于媽媽的故事后,我哭了”, Sydney在推特上寫道。“這長達27年的婚姻。”

Yeah, we're crying too.
是的,看到這里,我們也抑制不住眼淚了。
