>> so, let me give you the whole story. really what happened was i was on paternity leave , and my wife is getting the older one ready and she's running late for work. she's like, the baby's crying, i'm trying to do hair, i don't have time. i'm like, listen, i've got this. how are you going to get this? so i got this. i put the little one in the carrier. and then i had combing her hair. i thought, there's no way she's going to believe me. i took the ultimate selfie. i got the camera on a timer, took a picture and sent it to my wife.
>> were you surprised about this wave of love that you got when this picture came out?
>> well, at the time yeah. but now i get it. it's a human interest story . there's race, fatherhood, baby wearing, all types of things that go into it.
>> people are going to talk smack.
>> you did a terrific thing. between the paternity leave and showing your daughters love. it used to take me hours. willie and i tried to braid hair on the show.
>> you know, did you do that another half hour?
>> this is a lot smoother than normal.
>> could you work your way down a little on my neck? oh. you saw the guns on that guy in the picture.
>> thanks for setting the bar so high. now when we can't do something, our wives go, but dwayne does it.
>> you guys are dad. so i have swag. wristbands.
>> all right.
