Even though dads never show it upfront, the minute you find their expression of love, it warms up your heart.
No matter who you are or what you do, a piece of your parent’s heart always holds a place for you. Mothers are known to share that love in the form of cuddles, kisses and more. But often, fathers put on the dad game and pretend to be all tough and manly. However, deep within, they hold the most selfless love for their children and if you observe, you’ll see that love expressed in the tiniest yet most heartwarming ways. Antonia Wroten (@antonia.wroten) shared a heartwarming clip that showed her dad’s love for her in the most conventional ways.
Antonia Wroten shared a clip on TikTok that showed that she was her daddy’s "little girl" even after growing up. The video had text overlay that read, “Pov: You have an ‘emotionless’ dad who shows his love in every other way.” Wroten’s dad was looking through his wallet when Wroten found her pictures in there too. She curiously asked, “Why have you got pictures of me in your wallet?” To this, her dad adorably replied, “Excuse me,” feeling shy and funny about it. He went on to say, “That’s my wallet and I do whatever I want,” trying to keep up his 'tough' act.
The excitedly amazed Wroten went on to ask, “Why do you have to carry it?” Her father replied, “It’s my wallet and I want to keep it.” Wroten got an idea of the mushy man that her dad was inside and asked him, “Do you have to see your daughter every day?” Meanwhile, her dad, completely caught in the act, tried to be as bland and genuine as possible. She found more pictures of herself in his wallet, including her childhood ones and her ID too. Finding the situation heartwarming, she asked her dad, “Why do you have fingerprints? Stalker.” To this, her dad, who couldn't come up with another excuse, stammered and said, “Look, look, look, well....”
A dad’s love surpasses many. That's why, users could relate to this video of 'tough' dads. @fluffythadon20 said, “My dad’s got pictures of me from high school in his wallet and now he has my daughter’s pictures over them.” @812.joce said, “My dad has a picture of me in his wallet so long that it’s not imprinted on it.”
In a follow-up video, the dad is seen getting ready in his room, feeling all chirpy and cool about being appreciated by millions of users. In this video, the father-daughter duo shared a light-hearted conversation. Wroten showed a section of the room full of greeting cards displayed on a wall and said, “I wanted to show you all that my dad keeps all the birthday cards he gets from us.” She further pointed out the ones that were from her and also showed pictures of herself that her dad had kept in his room. As usual, to ensure the situation doesn’t get too emotional, her father jokingly said, “Now you're gonna make this about you. You’re jealous of your father.”
This video, too, made the viewers go aww. @swallowmyfire commented: "I truly feel bad for people who don’t experience love from a father. Ain’t no love like a dad's love!" while @nerreberry wrote: "Aww what a sweet father/daughter relationship. Cherish this." Truly, a father's love can never be matched in a kid's life.
