While putting in the conditioner and combing his son's hair. David admitted to him that he used to get upset when children at school would call him pretty.

He explained to David Jr. how he overcame his frustration with the name saying, "all the girls like pretty a boy, so I started to embrace it."

"Instead of seeing your differences as a weakness, change the way you look at them and make them a strength."
