Black fathers often get a bad wrap, but contrary to popular belief, there are many men out there who take pride in the institution of fatherhood. There may be limited positive depictions of them on TV, but with social media fueling user-generated content, we’re seeing more and more father/daughter moments that paint a different picture.
Don’t believe us? Just watch!
The latest aww-worthy video to go viral is an original song that one dad made with his baby girl. It’s an adorable number that features a young girl rapping the lyrics “Kicking it with my dad,” while her father (who’s behind the camera) sings “Kicking it with my daughter” — and it’s actually hot!
The extremely cute clip will have you bopping to the beat but it isn’t the only one to make rounds on social media lately. Just last week, a video of a dad dancing with his daughter to Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea’s hit “Problem,” flooded our Facebook timelines. And after watching the way they hit the choreography, we’d say he was having even more fun than her!
We can’t think of anything more precious than a father’s love for the little lady in his life! We’ve compiled some other sweet videos of dads and their daughters spending quality time together that literally made our hearts melt. Check them out.
