"Lovely to see this...I know this feeling, my daughter used to run like this and hug me when I came home from work some years back...Now, she is a grown-up teen, almost my height and will surpass me in a few months for sure...Daughters are special for sure," wrote another user on the post.
Some called it an "amazing" and wonderful moment.
I am used to this feeling as well, as I come home from a hard day's work and my daughter runs in to hug me tight. Daughters are father's heartbeat after all.— Rohan Karkhanis (@RohanKarkhanis) September 4, 2021

Akram was away from his family for the last 10 months due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. While he was in Pakistan, his wife and daughter were in Australia.
The 55-year-old, last month, travelled to Australia to reunite with his family and after spending his mandatory 14-day quarantine, he was allowed to meet them.
