'Umbrella dad' is melting hearts all over the internet for selflessly sheltering his son

The ultimate dad move.

THIS VERY CONSIDERATE dad is melting hearts all over the internet. He’s the prime example of a loving, selfless parent, by sheltering his young son from the rain and allowing himself to get soaked.

The photo, simply captioned ‘Dads’ was posted to Imgur over the weekend, and has been viewed over 3.6 million times since.

One commenter noted the double-benefit of his caring act:

But you see, dad is doing more than keeping him dry. He’s teaching him how to put others before himself.
