This dad captured some precious bonding time with his daughter. When his wife uploaded the clip to Facebook, it immediately went viral as the cuteness level was off the charts. 


The video, shared by mother Laura, showed a father standing in the bathroom behind his daughter who is propped up on the bathroom sink in front of him.

The girl wore an adorable pink onesie dotted with brown giraffes. Her name is Keeton, and she is ready to sing her heart out with the help of her father.

Richardson, Keeton's dad, chose to sing the classic Temptations tune "My Girl" with his daughter. The resulting duet is incredibly heartwarming.

The father started off with the well-known first line: "I got sunshine, on a..."

When he paused, Keeton picked it up by singing, "cloudy day" with a rich enthusiasm.

Richardson continued: "When it's..." to which Keeton jumped in with "cold outside!" 


The young child appeared to know several of the song's lyrics. She took over at the bridge as her father gently guided her to dance to the song.


In the finale, Keeton repeatedly sang the famous line "My Girl" until the video stopped. 


Earlier this month, another little girl captured hearts when she upstaged her dad on the hit reality talent show, "The Voice." 

Claire Ryann joined her dad Dave onstage after his blind audition on the show. One of the judges had actually seen the two in an online clip before and wanted to see the adorable duet perform.

The little girl sang a short tune with her father and melted hearts not only in the audience but across the country.

And back in 2016, another duo went viral when they shared an epic father-daughter dance captured at the daughter's wedding reception. 

Mikayla Ellis Phillips and her father, Nathan Ellison danced to a mashup of throwback tracks and modern songs in a choreographed routine that stunned their 400 guests.

The dance featured old hits like M.C. Hammer's "Can't Touch This," The Sugarhill Gang's "Jump On It!" and N'Sync's "Bye Bye Bye." 

Of course, it wasn't the main event of Phillips' magical night, but it sure was a moment to remember with her beloved father.
