Last Valentine’s Day, Marcus Hill of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, decided to surprise his wife with breakfast in bed.
MJ, their 7-year-old son, was excited to help out, so he started pulling out pots and pans and helping him crack eggs and fry bacon. Not only was Mom thrilled with the pampering, but MJ and Marcus had so much fun together that they decided to make breakfast in bed a regular Sunday occurrence!
It didn’t take long for the father-son cooking sessions to get even better. These days, the two of them sing and dance as they get everything ready!
Marcus recorded one of their jam sessions for his wife one day and shared the clip on Instagram. When the story disappeared, he was surprised to hear from friends and relatives who had enjoyed seeing them happily bustling in the kitchen.
That’s when Marcus decided to put the heartwarming videos on his page more often. Now, the duo is going viral because they are just too pure for this world!

“I grew up in a single parent home. I am also a school teacher. I know a lot of kids who don’t have parents in the household,” Marcus said. “When I started posting the videos, I’d get comments from friends and people I don’t even know saying, ‘This is inspirational. I didn’t have a dad growing up.'”
As a teacher, Marcus understands just how important it is for young children to have positive adult role models. While he never expected to go viral for his awesome parenting, he’s loving the chance to connect with people and set a good example.
“I wasn’t trying to be an inspiration, but it’s like thank you!” he explained. “It became one of those things. This is something positive. Let me keep posting. When it started going viral, that wasn’t my intent, but I decided let’s keep going.”
As for MJ, the simple truth is that he adores his father and the time they spend together!
“I have fun with my dad,” he said. “We do a lot of things. We play football. We cook. I grill with my dad too!”
These two have such a wonderful relationship! You can tell from MJ’s big grin just how much he’s loving each moment with Marcus, and now they’re inspiring others to follow in their footsteps!
