Uh-oh! Ted Cruz’s daughter, Caroline, let slip — on national television — that her school has a SUPER embarrassing video of her dad dressed in a pink boa and undies. Yikes! Cue Ted’s PR team tracking down the evidence as we speak.
If it wasn’t before, it’s pretty obvious now that Ted Cruz, 45, is one dedicated father! SO dedicated that the presidential candidate risked total social embarrassment just to make his daughter laugh while attending a class picnic. The Texas senator shamelessly dressed up in a pink boa and whacky underwear — hilarious, right? And there’s actually a VIDEO of the whole thing…which his daughter’s school plans on distributing!
“She got to dress up Daddy in a pink boa and these like, big goofy-looking underwear…” explained Ted during the April 13 live broadcast of the Cruz family Town Hall on CNN. The senator was joined on stage by his two young daughters Caroline, 8, and Catherine, 4, along with his wife, Heidi Cruz, 43.
But things took a turn for the awkward when Ted’s oldest girl revealed that there was more to her dad’s dress-up story than even he thought! “And [inaudible] it was on a videotape the whole time,” the eight-year-old told her father, in front of millions of Americans watching at home. “And that was a class video that they’re sending out to all the parents.” Talk about dropping a bombshell!
A slightly nervous Ted could only mutter an “uh-oh,” while Anderson Cooper, 48, the host of the segment, giggled his way through an “Oh really?” at the revelation. As a result, Heidi attempted to quiet down Caroline. Kids just say the darndest things, don’t they? And while Caroline’s comment was totally innocent — and quite adorable — we can just imagine the hundreds of reporters who are now desperately trying to get their hands on that footage!
The rest of the broadcast however, seemed to go off without a hitch and we have to say, Ted’s adorable daughters were totally the best part! Anderson even asked the family who they would want to be their first guest at the White House and it was revealed that they’d choose Taylor Swift, 26. Caroline and Catherine are HUGE fans of hers — so sweet!
What do you think of Ted sporting a pink boa for his daughter, HollywoodLifers? Would you love to see the tape?
