Watch: One dad’s heartwarming reaction to his son’s new doll

By Will Stroude

One father’s touchingly open-minded reaction to his son buying a new Disney princess doll has gone viral online.

The video of Mikki Willis with his two sons in a shop car park has been viewed almost nine million times since being posted to his Facebook page last Friday (August 21), and it’s not hard to see why.

HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER - "It's All Her Fault" - Annalise takes on a new client, Max St. Vincent (Steven Weber), an eccentric millionaire who is the key suspect in his wife's brutal murder. All the clues point to St. Vincent as the killer, but Annalise challenges her students to prove he's innocent - whether that's the truth or not. Meanwhile, Annalise deals with issues in her own home when her growing suspicions that Sam (Tom Verica) is somehow involved in Lila's disappearance start to affect their marriage. In flash forwards, we go back to the night of the murder and learn that Wes might be hiding a few secrets of his own, on "How to Get Away with Murder," THURSDAY OCTOBER 2 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Mikki filmed the video after his son was given two of the same presents for his birthday, so went to the store to swap one  – which he did, for an Ariel princess doll (a commendable choice, we might add).

Asking the camera, “How do you think a dad feels when his son wants to get this?”, Mikki’s beaming son soon answers the question himself, shouting: “YEEEEEEAH!”

Sharing his son’s enthusiasm, Mikki yells: “YEAH! That’s how I feel!”

The father of two goes on: “I let my boys choose their life, that’s how momma and I are, we just say whatever. We say yeah!

“Choose it, choose your expression, choose what you’re into, choose your sexuality, choose whatever.”

And then comes the kicker.

“You have my promise forever to love you and accept you, no matter what life you choose. Yeah!”
