A California dad's heartwarming reaction after his son asked for a doll at the toy store has gone viral.
According to ABC News, Mikki Willis of Ojai recently took his 4-year-old son, Azai, to a toy store to return a duplicate birthday gift. When Willis asked Azai what he wanted in exchange, the youngster picked out a "Little Mermaid" doll.
"Now, how do you think a dad feels when his son wants to get this?" Willis asks while holding the doll in a video posted to Facebook on Friday.
"Yeah!" Willis and Azai enthusiastically shout in response.
"That's how I feel. ... I let my boys choose their life," Willis adds, referring to Azai and his 1 1/2-year-old brother, Zuri.
"Choose your expression. Choose what you're into. Choose your sexuality. Choose whatever."
The clip ends with a lot of happy shrieks as Willis promises to always love and support his sons.
The footage has gone viral, with more than 13.5 million views by early Tuesday.
