Father Mikki Willis of Ojai, California, was exchanging a duplicate gift with his son at a toy store when four-year-old Azai decided he wanted a Little Mermaid Princess Ariel doll.
The production company found took the opportunity to post a video and tell his sons: ‘You have my promise forever to love you and accept you no matter what life you choose’.
The video has since been viewed more than 12million times on Facebook.
“This is what he chose, now how do you think a dad feels when his son wants to get this?”
Azai yells ‘yeah!’ and his dad echoes the outburst, saying that he feels the same way.
“I let my boy choose their life, that’s how mama and I, that’s how we are.”
The father said that he was not surprised when his four-year-old picked up the Barbie.
“Azai is equally fascinated by princesses and robots. One moment he’s all boy, the next he’s expressing a softer, more angelic side. … For me this behaviour rings more authentic than playing one note all the time.”
