A year ago this month Kordale and Kaleb—the preternaturally handsome, buff, and tattooed dads of three beautiful daughters—posted an Instagram of them getting their daughters ready for school in the morning. It set social media ablaze. The sweet family snapshot, which was hashtagged #fatherhood #proudfathers #blackfathers #prouddads #gaydads, and now has 40k likes, provoked both cold-hearted hatred and waves of support. Now, Nikon has launched an ad campaign starring Kordale and Kaleb, who haven't taken a shred of the negativity to heart: a print of the original Instagram is even framed on their stairwell. Watch the video above and revel in its sweetness.
Being fathers is getting our daughters up at 5:30 am making breakfast getting them dressed for school and putting them on the bus by 6:30 .This is a typical day in our household . It's not easy but we enjoy every moment and eveny minute of #fatherhood . #proudfathers #blackfathers #prouddads #gaydads
