Vanessa Thompson, 28, from New York, US, secretly filmed her husband, Vance, as he cradled their daughter and kissed her on the cheek in a restaurant.
The mum-of-five decided to mimic her husband being the doting dad while he was completely unaware.
“When you’ve been replaced by the new girl,” the mum captioned the Facebook video, posted on Friday 14 April.
The video had more than 30,000 views in four days and many found the daddy-daughter bond adorable.
“I’m sorry but there is nothing sweeter than just smooching on a brand-new beautiful infant,” one person wrote. “Enjoy it!”
Another commented: “Awwwww. This is cute on every level. Mumma is like: ‘What about me?’”
One thing’s for sure, with four brothers and a mum and dad that devoted, the baby is going to be one loved little girl.
