At first glance, Thanh Tran, a super-buff dad from Tennessee, has all the markings of a macho man who should not to be messed with. But there is one person that without fail melts his heart - his 8-year-old step-daughter, Adriana Cross.
Adriana has been taking ballet classes for a few years, and earlier this week, the school hosted a parents' night, where she was asked to invite her mom and dad to participate in the class.
Adriana knew her mother, Rebecca, would not be able to plié and sashay around the class because she is seven months pregnant, so she asked her father to accompany her. Of course, he couldn't say no.
"I knew it would bring a lot of joy to my daughter,” Thann told People. "Seeing her big smile when I walked in was all worth it."
While Rebecca watched from the sidelines, Thanh put on a black tutu to match the rest of his ensemble, and delivered a hilarious, yet adorable performance on the barre alongside Adriana.
"He stepped up to fill in for me. It was mostly moms participating,” said Rebecca, who caught the entire routine on camera. "I loved it! I thought it was very sweet and funny too."
Both Rebecca and Thahn shared photos and footage of the special moment, and people on the internet couldn't help but praise the dad for his selflessness.
