As reported by USA Today, Swink was anxious about coming out to his dad, but the two have always had a strong relationship.

"I got this feeling that I just needed to get it off my chest before I left, because it was weighing on me for so long, not saying anything," Swink said, USA Today reports. He decided to video record his coming out to his dad, and posted the reaction online.

His reaction, posted online, was a heartfelt surprise. Watch the moment below.
