Did your dad ever embarrass you a little when a date came to pick you up? This probably tops that.
Dad Benjamin Schock is getting giggles from everywhere after he posed for a picture with his 15-year-old daughter's boyfriend (no this is not Photoshopped), and his wife Rebecca posted it on Facebook. In the split shot, their daughter, Ricarra, and her boyfriend can be seen posing on one side. And on the other, Benjamin has his hands wrapped around her boyfriend in the same pose. Lolz.
So, what's the deal? Before Ricarra and her bae headed to homecoming that day, Benjamin decided to pull off the ultimate photo bomb while they were posing for photos. "My husband had mentioned previously in humor that he would do to the boyfriend whatever was done to our daughter," she told Buzzfeed. "So he jumped in the picture and they posed for the picture." While we probably would've yelled 'OMG dad!' with a mortified look on our faces...
Rebecca said everyone cracked up (Ricarra and her boyfriend included) when he did it. Whew. "My husband is a big-hearted teddy bear, so it was his way of being silly with a pinch of 'I'm watching you. buddy,'" she continued. After Rebecca snuck a picture of the whole thing and posted it on her Facebook page, it ended up on Imgur and has been viewed there over 3.6 million times.
Those views were just the beginning. Rebecca also told the site they've gotten so many messages about it that she can't keep up. "We live in a small, country, close-knit community and have loved all the love and support we have received from all around the globe," she said.
The family is focused on having fun and being positive, Rebecca said, particularly because her husband is battling multiple brain tumors. "We hope that above anything else this pictures shows the love and protective nature of a dad with his little girl, but in a playful and not-so-intimidating manner," she said. It absolutely does...and we have a feeling tons of other dads would give him a high five for it.
