He couldn’t stop looking at her. He couldn’t help smiling.

A father was so in love with his infant daughter that it brought him to tears, as seen in a video that went viral on Friday.

“You make daddy smile. You’re the best thing that ever happened to me,” the new father said in the clip that originally appeared on JunkinVideo’s Facebook page. But it got more than 16 million views on NTD Television’s page.

“I love you so much,” he continued, cueing soft music and the sweetest, little baby coos you’ll hear all week! “You’re my best friend, you know that, honey? I love you so much.”

He couldn’t hold back tears as the baby smiled back up at him. He pulled his daughter up to kiss her on the cheek, leaving a teardrop on her face that he gently brushed away with his thumb.

A father’s love for his daughter is unmatched, and we’re proud to see in the spotlight black dads loving on their little princesses.
