In the touching clip, which has been viewed more than 7 million times, William Ledbetter informs a little girl he has just asked her mother to marry him. "Eeewww!" she shrieks, and runs across the room (hah!).
But then Ledbetter gets down on one knee, asks her to come over to him, and pulls out a tiny ring box. "But I didn't want to leave you out," he tells her, and asks if she will be his daughter forever.
The thrilled little girl puts on the ring and beams up at her mom, who we assume is taking the video. "It fits!" she announces proudly, and then jumps into her forever father's arms, planting a big kiss on his lips.
Honestly, this is the cutest thing I've seen in a while. That William took the time to create a special moment for his soon-to-be stepdaughter so that she would feel included in the next step for their family is simply amazing. Clearly he is ready to be her dad, and a great one at that.
Meanwhile, I can only imagine how this mini-proposal made the mom feel. She can have no doubt she is marrying the right man!
