It appears that a father wanted to see his son’s “boy toy” and it’s now gone viral and for all the right reasons.
His teen son Louis decided to share the text exchange between himself and his father.
“Send me the pic of u and ur boy toy,” read Dad’s text, followed by two adorable photos of Louis with his boyfriend.
Louis added that his father wanted to show his co-workers the photos. It has since been liked 50K times and shared by 7K people:
After the positive reposes, Louis added this to his Twitter thread:
“I just love that my dad was showing off me and Christian,” Louis told Buzzfeed News.
“Everyone was telling how much they love my dad — that he was the father of the year.”
He added that one commenter said, “Oh, I’m straight and my dad doesn’t even do this with me.”
“It’s not even us being gay,” he said. “It’s just my dad accepting who I’m in love with.”
Louis’ father, Louis Sr., was happy to learn his love had spread so far.
“It makes me feel good that people are out there giving me props,” he said.
He added that Louis Jr. has always been supported and loved in their home. “Always. Ever since day one,” he said. “Ever since he came out to us.”
