There is nothing sweeter than a dad who is willing to do something special for his daughter — especially if he looks ridiculous while doing it in public.
That’s exactly what this father did for his adorable daughter when they went to Disney dressed as mermaids together.
Obviously, she is Princess Ariel and he is King Triton.
Good job, mermaid dad.
I can’t get over how shiny his mermaid tail is. And those gold wrist cuffs! So. Cute.
The photo was posted to Reddit on Saturday by someone who spotted the pair at the park and has received a flood of comments, praising the dad for doing such an adorable, selfless thing for his kid.
Some Redditors had suggestions of how this dad could use this photo to his advantage once his little princess grows up:
I would use this pic so when she grows up and becomes a rebel teen giving me attitude i would be like…. Remember the time i fucking dressed like a mermaid for you.
And for some, this photo and the comments it inspired hit home a little too hard:
Nope. Dads think all day and night about what will make their daughters happy, and then they try their best to make it happen, some how, some way, and they’re devastated when they can’t. This guy got those outfits and came up with the idea of wearing it for one reason, and one reason only – he wanted to see his little girl’s eyes light up.
Case in point. Years ago Leon Russell was playing a gig here in town, and I really wanted to go. However, the Jonas Brothers were playing the same night. Guess which show we went to? And I enjoyed the hell out of it. They are actually solid musicians, but you know what made the night? The look on my little girl’s face.
Nothing else matters to a Dad, ever. Don’t kid yourself about that. You are the only thing he thinks about day in and day out.
