Father of the year!

A dad from California has been receiving praise from all over the world ever since he posted a video on Facebook saying that he is excited his son chose an Ariel doll at the toy store. Mikki Willis of Ojai, California, has a 4-year-old son Azai who likes to play with dolls, but that is not bothering him at all.


Willis, a filmmaker, posted the video in which he explained that Azai had received two identical gifts from his July 26 birthday party, so they went to the store to exchange one. The proud dad said that, without a second thought, his toddler chose a “Little Mermaid” doll.


Willis said that he wasn’t shocked at all by his son’s choice because Azai is equally fascinated by princesses and robots. Following the store visit, the dad-of-two filmed the emotional video, in which he promises to support his sons no matter what decisions they make in life.


“Choose your expression”, Willis said in the video. “Choose what you’re into. Choose your sexuality. Choose whatever. You have my promise right now, both of you, as we sit in this car, in the hot car, in this parking lot, you have my promise forever to love you and accept you no matter what life you choose.”


The video was posted to Facebook on August 21, and it has been viewed more than 13 million times since then. The filmmaker said that he was amazed by how many people have watched it, as well as how the reactions have been extremely positive.
