Watch this (and get ready for your mouth to hurt from how hard you're smiling):
When Praize’s dad finally sees his wife’s new look, his reaction is delightful and emphatic.
“Oh, wow!” he says in awe of his beautiful wife. “Oh, you are so hot! Ooh! That is so fine! You look like a Hollywood star!”
Say it with me, now: "Awwwwwww!"
This video made me want to spend 20 years growing out my hair and then shave it all off, just in the hopes that my husband would have the same reaction.
(On second thought, maybe I’ll just watch the video again and live vicariously through Praize’s parents. I can’t afford all that shampoo.)
The best thing about Praize's dad's reaction is how obvious it is that he loves his wife regardless of how closely she follows the prescribed rules of "femininity."
He doesn’t care that “most” men prefer long hair. He clearly prefers for his wife to feel happy with the way she looks, whatever that may entail.
(Plus, I mean, she’s obviously clearly 100 percent stunning.)
The response to Praize's charming video has been overwhelmingly positive. There are also some people pointing out that while her mom is clearly gorgeous, her dad is pretty good-lookin' himself.
Seriously. Double denim can only be pulled off by a few men on this planet, and I just assumed they were all movie stars. Now I know better.
In short, everything about this video is completely wonderful.
It also has me wondering whether Praize’s parents are interested in adopting a 27-year-old woman from Los Angeles. Just asking for a friend.
