Alfonso Ribeiro of 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' Melts Hearts with Video of Baby Daughter Ava Sue Falling Asleep on His Chest
Alfonso Ribeiro and his daughter, Ava Sue, undoubtedly won the internet with a video of the almost-six-month-old falling asleep on her daddy's chest. Internet users couldn't help melting in a puddle over the adorable duo.
There's nothing like the love between a father and his daughter, and Alfonso just proved it by showing off the bond he shares with Ava.
A few days ago, the "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" alum took to Instagram with a clip of baby Ava sitting across her father's stomach and adorably sucking a thumb.
"She just smiles and connects all the time. She’s got two crazy older brothers that love her. She’s just a little sweetheart."
In no time, the tiny tot's eyelids start to droop. Soon enough, Ava gives in to the urge and falls slowly to Alfonso's chest. The camera pans to the actor's face, and his look is one of pure delight. Honestly, the video is too cute for words!
"This is the best going to sleep video ever," Alfonso gushed in the caption and social media users couldn’t agree more.
"Teen Witch" star, Robyn Lively led the heartwarming comments train:
"Omg... Alfonso!! This is the SWEETEST! Watching on repeat!"
"This is the most precious video ever," another Instagram user chimed in. "Thank you for sharing."
"Omg, my heart," gushed yet another fan about Ava. "She’s just the cutest lil bean."
Alfonso and his wife, Angela Ribeiro, welcomed baby Ava on May 13. The "America's Funniest Home Videos" host announced her birth at the time with a photo of the newborn.
"Ava Sue Ribeiro finally decided to send @mrsangelaribeiro1 to the hospital on Mother’s Day and came into our world early yesterday morning," he shared. "Both Ava and Mommy are doing great."
Dishing more details about their only daughter’s addition to their home, Alfonso told PEOPLE in September:
"She’s a really happy baby. She just smiles and connects all the time. She’s got two crazy older brothers that love her. She’s just a little sweetheart. There’s a lot of love in our house."
Ava is the third child for Alfonso and Angela who also shares sons AJ, six, and Anders, Four. The "Dancing With The Stars" winning alum also has a 17-year-old daughter, Sienna, from his first marriage to actress Robin Stapler.
Alfonso and Robin were married from 2002 to 2006. He and Angela tied the knot six years later on October 13 after a three-month-long engagement.
