Joe Biden was officially nominated for president by the Democratic Party on Tuesday night.
After his home state of Delaware delivered the final delegates in his favor, the former Vice President appeared live on screen for the first time in the convention.
Shots of Biden and his wife Jill Biden -- and then his grandchildren, who shot celebratory streamers over him -- were interspersed with videos of Americans cheering.
"Thank you all from the bottom of my heart from my family, and I'll see you on Thursday," Biden said, referring to his upcoming speech to close the convention.
Watch the moment:
Former President Barack Obama tweeted congrats to Biden on his acceptance of the nomination.
"Congrats, Joe. I'm proud of you," Obama said.
