Top Viral Stories Of The Week - October 23, 2015


This weekly round up is all about the dads -- protective dads, new dads in love with new moms, and faithful dads giving away their faithful daughters.

Okay -- there may be one story that has nothing to do with dads. Read on.

1. New dad uses newborn baby for adorable hospital wedding proposal

Giving birth is an emotional experience -- and so is getting engaged. And when the two collide, you get a viral video!

New dad Michael Miles popped the question to his girlfriend of three years, Triston Lowery, shortly after she gave birth to baby Lynleigh at a Mississippi hospital.

Miles made the plan with hospital staff to dress Lynleigh in a onesie reading, "Will You Marry My Daddy?" Video footage captured the moment a nurse placed the newborn in her shocked mother's arms.

Momma Triston said "yes," and the pair are certain it was the first time their newborn smiled.

The video of the proposal has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times on Facebook, which is a huge deal considering the pair are from a rural town with a population of 314.

2. Dad reminds his daughter's boyfriend who is boss

Protective dads are usually intimidating -- but the country is praising one Wisconsin pop for his hilarious delivery of protectiveness.

Photographer Sharee Schock was taking photos for homecoming when her husband jokingly said that "he would do to the boyfriend whatever was done to our daughter."

A photo of him fulfilling his promise has since gone viral and been shared by media outlets all across the country.

3. Bride gives dad 'Certificate of Purity' at her wedding


While we're on the topic of protective dads, we might as well mention Breyln Freeman, who promised her pastor father, Dr. Mike Freeman, at the young of 13 that she would save her virginity until marriage.

On October 10, Breyln and her fiance Timothy Brown got married. Following the ceremony, the bride posted this photo with the caption that read, in part:

"Dancing with my first love! I was able to present a certificate of purity to him signed by my doctor that my hymen was still intact..."

Some cried TMI, while others supported the couple on their celibacy through three years of courtship.

4. We have no words for this 'Wheel Of Fortune' fail

Now, this "Wheel of Fortune" fail has nothing to do with dads -- but we can't leave it out.

Watch to see the contestant's guess for this puzzle:


We know you can't see host Pat Sajak in that clip -- and that may be a good thing.

That's a wrap on our weekly roundup of trending and viral stories. Check back next week for a new batch of stories you may have missed.
