Warning to all the uncles out there, the bar has officially been raised! A Detroit uncle has really won a lot of brownie points with his niece after making the young girl feel comfortable about wearing her princess gown in public. What he does will have all the ladies swooning!

Jesse Nagy, 26, has officially gone viral after a photo of him with his four-year-old niece, Izzy, hit the popular website Reddit. The reason? He just so happened to attend the movie Cinderella wearing a princess gown alongside his niece. No, it’ not his usual attire, he had a very sweet reason for playing dress up.

‘Cinderella’: Man, 26, Dresses Up In Gown With Young Niece

Jesse never would have thought a photograph of him wearing a strapless dress would have scored him a huge fan base — over 1.7 million that is!

On March 22, the heavily tattooed Detroit resident took his sweet little niece to a movie, dressed up in a princess gown. While there, a theater employee innocently snapped a picture of the gown wearing duo and posted it to Reddit. Less than an hour later, Jesse’s phone begin ringing, talk about becoming an overnight celebrity!

The picture is hands down amazing. Jesse was smiling from ear-to-ear while wearing a bright blue and purple sparking princess dress. He topped of his look by adding a pink rhinestone handbag and tiara. We guess Jesse couldn’t find glass slippers in his size, because he opted for flip flops.

You can’t help but laugh at these pics that showcase the man’s chest hair, multiple tattoos, big muscular arms and wolverine-like facial hair.  

Jesse Wanted To Have A ‘Princess Day’ With His Niece

It all started because Izzy was nervous to wear her princess gown in public, so Jesse stepped up and decided to have a “princess day” with the little girl, according to ABC News.

“She’s like my mini-me,” he told the outlet. “I really wanted to spend time with her, so I said ‘let’s go have a princess day. She said ‘you could be a princess too.'”

He continued to tell ABC News, “We made the trade-off and I said, ‘OK, we can both be princesses,’ but she had to have the crown. I thought ‘fair enough!'” So when they arrived, obviously heads started to turn and one theater employee snapped their photo and posted it on Reddit where it has received over 1.7 million views, according to the outlet.

“I had no idea,” he said. “It wasn’t until midway through the movie by phone kept ringing with people texting asking if I was at a theater in Alabama. I’m not even subscribed to these sites so I said ‘what the heck is going on?'” He went on to say he would do whatever it takes to make his niece happy. So sweet. Jesse is nothing less than amazing!
