New parents often sing non-lullaby songs to their babies, because as much as we all love the classics, “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” it gets really old, really quick. (Confession: my baby fell asleep to “Across the Universe” on more than one occasion).
While sharing your love of music with your baby is fun, it’s also incredibly sweet— which is why a video of a dad singing Joe Cocker’s “You Are So Beautiful” to his new daughter went viral.
The video is short, but packs a seriously cute punch. In it, a dad is cradling his baby girl’s head and quietly sings the classic song’s intro. The sweet girl keeps her eyes glued on him, and looks at him with what can only be described as adoration.
She never takes her gaze off her dad and even gives him a huge smile.
After wrapping up the song, the dad and baby share another smile before dad leans in to give his girl a kiss that would melt even the coldest heart.
It’s no shock that the dad’s serenade has been viewed more than 1 Million times. It has also earned hundreds of comments from people basking in the cuteness to reflecting back on the songs their parents sang to them as kids.
This is sure to be a video that little girl will look back on many times throughout her life.
Watch the sweet moment in the video below and then share the love with your friends!
