What did the famous tweet say, well, here it is: “My son finished 4th in the race because instead of running across the finish line he ran to hug me. Ah well won my heart.” Who wouldn’t melt over a post like this one?

Imoh Umoren, an indie film director from Lagos, Nigeria, went to see Imoh Umoren II’s school race. He was apparently way at the front of the whole group of little kids running, but then, he spotted his dad. Instead of continuing on to the finish line, he got out of the track to hug him instead. Too sweet!

“He was making good progress, but he spotted me trying to take a picture of him,” Umoren said. “I guess he’s used to ending most of his races at home with running into my arms,” he confessed.

When Umoren convinced him to get back in the race, it was too late… he ended up in fourth place. “He was a bit disappointed that I wouldn’t join in because we always do it together, but he didn’t seem to care,” the proud father commented.

Umoren says fatherhood has changed him a lot, like, for example, he has stopped cursing, “because he always mimics me,” he admits.

He has also tried to instill in his son the idea that expressing feelings, and being sensitive does not take away your manhood, saying that “I’m a very emotional guy and I want my kid to be the same way, and not some patriarchal macho who is incapable of feeling.”

People’s comments on social media have been all filled with praise for this wonderful father-son couple. Here are some of them:

He recently made a film called "The Happyness Limited," played by actor Tope Tedela, about a man who loses everything in a fire and is trying reclaim his life.

Here is the movie's trailer...
