A father from Thailand has bowled over the internet with his sweet gesture for his sons on Mother’s Day. Chatchai Panuthai, a single father in Kanchanaburi, wore a pink dress to greet his two sons, Imsome and Ozone, at a school event ahead of Mother’s Day, which is celebrated on August 12 in Thailand.
Kornpat Ae Sukhom, a friend of Panuthai’s, filmed the event and posted the video on Facebook. One of Panuthai’s sons knelt in front of him, following the traditional Thai method of showing gratitude to mothers.
Sukhom told BuzzFeed that Panuthai decided to put on the dress as he did not want his sons to feel left out because their mother could not make it to the event. “Everyone enjoyed it and all laughed and took photos with him,” she said. “His two sons weren’t quite sure what was going on and why Dad was wearing a dress.”
The video has been viewed more than six million times and many people commented gushingly on Panuthai’s heartwarming gesture.
