It’s a well known fact that grandparents love to spoil their grandchildren, but one gran has taken things to the next level.
Sharon Moseley threw what could arguably be the most lavish birthday party for a one-year-old ever.
The grandmother certainly didn’t cut any corners when it came to her grandson Danny Smith, pulling out a golden high chair, seafood buffet and an open bar for about 170 of Danny’s (and her own) closest friends.
The whole bash cost Sharon nearly $30,000 (£16,000), which she has proudly showed off on Instagram. #MajorGrandmaGoals.
- Mum spends $1.2K to keep up with partying daughter
- Everything you need to know about Prince Louis’ christening
But with her social media posts came a bit of backlash, and she’s since been forced to defend the lavish celebrations after some branded it “ridiculous”.
Defending herself on UK talk show This Morning, Sharon said the party was for her daughter – Danny’s mother – “because she’s been through so much”.
Her daughter, Georgia, was in a car crash when she was 17-years-old and was told she may never be able to have children because of it. She also has bipolar disorder.
Still, that didn’t stop people for sharing their thoughts about the expensive party on social media.
I’d rather have seen the full juicing segment than the thick granny spending 16k on a 1st birthday party 😡 #ThisMorning

#ThisMorning 16k on a 1st birthday party, that kid when he’s older will probably say he would of prefered the money in the bank for when he’s older so he can buy his first car or something he actually wants 😂

However, others praised the grandmother for living her best life with her family.
#thismorning for all the difficult time she has had.. I love this grandma, how much she loves her grandson and her family. If she can afford to give them what they want after all they have been through why shouldn’t she. Who is anyone to judge her. #dannyboy

Despite what some may think, we’re definitely jealous at this soldier-themed extravagant party for this one-year-old.
