“As a bald man, I’m very proud of my 2-month-old’s hair,” wrote new dad Brian Gorham, 32, along with a photo he shared to reddit.
And it’s not hard to see why: Gorham’s adorable baby, Alexandra, has some pretty enviable locks.
Gorham’s photo has quickly gone viral, viewed over 800,000 times as of Monday morning. In an update, the proud dad – who started going bald at 21 – added that his little girl is half Filipino and “takes after her mum”.
And the tot’s hair isn’t just shiny and gorgeously thick – it stands on end completely by itself. “My wife kept trying to slick it down with oil and make it ladylike,” Gorham told TODAY.
“She looks a little like the Ben Stiller character Derek Zoolander,” Gorham said.
And, unlike many babies who lose their hair, at two months old Alexandra’s locks are only growing thicker and stronger.
“I’m hoping it stays that way and maybe she’ll have a full-blown baby Afro within a month or two,” Gorham added.
