Dad Serenades Baby Girl & Her Sweet Response Is The Cutest Thing You’ll See Today.

Every once in a while, a video comes along that makes the entire internet swoon.

That’s exactly the case here… and for good reason! It’s basically the cutest darn thing we’ve ever seen. Dan Fowlks, a St. George, Utah actor and model, is a devoted dad to two little ones. His social media pages are sprinkled with candid moments from his warm, happy family life, and it’s clear that he takes his role of father very seriously.


Dan seems to go out of his way to create lasting memories for his children, whether it’s teaching his little boy how to fish, or cuddling with his daughter on the couch; he’s got this “dad” thing down pat.


In addition to his acting skills, Dan also dabbles in music. He’s got a beautiful voice and loves to sing to his kids any chance he gets.

When his daughter, Nova Lin was born, he shared her photo on Facebook with the caption, “Another girl to sing to, dance with, pretend with and grow with. Welcome to the world Nova Lin Fowlks, I will do my best to make it as pleasant and joyful as possible!”


Staying true to his word, Dan shared a video of himself serenading little Nova that has everyone who sees it falling in love. In the video, Dan grabs his ukelele and sings a popular “oldie” to her.


Dan croons “Dream Lover” by Bobby Darin as Nova Lin smiles up at her daddy. She even does her best to dance along to the music by rocking on her hands and knees, and Dan can’t help but giggle as he sings.

Ever the attentive dad, at one point Dan puts his knee up on the bed to make sure she’s safe as he sings to her.


What a sweet moment between father and daughter! This is one little girl who is already in love with her daddy – she looks at him with such adoration and joy.
