Toddler reacts to her dad shaving his beard in the sweetest way possible

She wanted her dad to shave his beard, so he did. Then adorableness ensued.

The first time a child sees their normally bearded dad without any facial hair can go a number of ways. Some kids cry and scream in terror, wondering who destroyed their father's face. Others stare in confusion, unsure of what to make of it.

And then there's this little sweetheart.

Ellie told her dad that she didn't like his beard and asked him to "take it off." So he did. At first, she's a bit taken aback.

"Hey, why did you take it off?" she asked. (Ah, toddlers, always not wanting what they just said they wanted.)


Then she asked if he'd put it in the back of his head.

Then it just got sweeter and sweeter.

"You're so silly, Popsy!"

"I like your face!"

"It's so sharpy."

"You're handsome and you're beautiful."

"I LOVE YOU."

Children are just so pure, and it's so clear that Ellie loves her Popsy so much, beard or no beard.

People are loving the video, which was originally shared by Ellie's parents on @uncooltoddler on Instagram.

"Welp, that’s probably the cutest thing I’ve seen ever," wrote one commenter.

"You can tell her parents speak nothing but love to her," wrote another.

"Well, that went well," wrote one person. "My daughter had never seen her dad's naked face till she was 4½ : she ran out into the yard screaming and wouldn't come back in the house w 'that shwange man'."

"I wonder if this will get old the 3000th time I watch it?" wondered one commenter, reflecting how most of us feel.

Several commenters decided they were going to adopt the nickname "Popsy," either for themselves or a dad or grandpa in their life.

So. Darn. Cute. Keep that cuteness coming, @uncooltoddler.

Every holiday season, millions of kids send letters asking for everything from a new bike to a pony. Some even make altruistic requests such as peace on Earth or helping struggling families around the holidays.

But wouldn’t the holiday season be even more magical if our pets had their wishes granted, too? That’s why Chewy Claus is stepping up to spread holiday cheer to America’s pets.

Does your dog dream of a month’s supply of treats or chew toys? Would your cat love a new tree complete with a stylish condo? How about giving your betta fish some fresh decor that’ll really tie its tank together?

Or do your pets need something more than mere creature comforts such as life-saving surgery?

A metal detector hobbyist looking for treasure on the beach.

Joseph Cook, 37, is a popular metal detectorist on social media where he shares videos of the many treasures he finds on Florida beaches. But what’s even more engaging than his finds is the incredible excitement he brings to the hobby. It’s like watching Steve Irwin, but with a Florida accent.

Not only is his attitude infectious but he also makes a point of doing good when he finds lost items. He wears a necklace around his neck with multiple rings that he’s found to remind him of his mission to return lost treasures.

Recently, he told SWNS that he dug up "the biggest diamond I ever found” on the beach. "When I first found it I thought it would just be a nickel, but then I dug it up and it was just this big old diamond and platinum ring," he said.

Someone asked who the female voice of Morgan Freeman was

Celebrities are known for different things, they all seem to have their niche but Morgan Freeman has cemented his place as the ultimate recognizable voice. In fact, if you ask some people who the voice of God is, Freeman will come to mind with his deep distinctive voice.

When thinking back, there doesn't seem to be a woman's voice that you immediately associate with that divine superpower to captivate listeners. Before Freeman was the voice of God, there was James Earl Jones, the voice of Darth Vader. With his deep hearty bass-like voice, even Jones' laugh is so distinctive that you automatically attribute it to him.

Someone on Reddit decided to find out what female actor people believed had the ability to instantly step into the shoes of someone like Freeman as far as voice is concerned. Some of the answers were pretty surprising while others, you can instantly see how they'd fall into that category.

Chasten Buttigieg shared what marriage equality looks like after the Senate voted to protect it

The Respect for Marriage act would codify same-sex and interracial marriage into law.

Chasten and Pete Buttigieg.

In a landmark, bipartisan 61 to 36 vote, the Senate approved the Respect for Marriage Act on Tuesday setting the stage for same-sex and interracial marriage to remain legal, even if they are struck down by the Supreme Court. It’s believed that the bill will be quickly passed by the House and signed into law by President Biden.

Even though same-sex and interracial marriages are legal in the U.S., after the Supreme Court overturned Roe vs. Wade last summer, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas noted that the decision that legalized gay marriage rests on the same principles that underscored Roe.

This signal by the conservative justice pushed Democrats to quickly work to codify same-sex and interracial marriage into law.
