Dad Glues Feeding Tube On His Stomach To Look Like His Son Who Has A Heart Defect 

A man is gaining praise online for his unique way of empowering his young son, who was born with a congenital heart defect.

Robert Selby, 33, of Virginia has gained tens of thousands of likes for an image featuring himself along with his adorable three-year-old son Chace. And while the photo sees the fit father posing shirtless, it has gone viral for a very different reason.

See Video Below.

Robert is seen in the photo posing in the bathroom with his little boy standing proud on the counter, both appearing to show off a feeding-tube in their respective bellies.

Chace looks utterly delighted to be looking more like his dad, proudly showing off his g-tube in the mirror.

The photo has since been shared on Instagram account Miracles and Messes, where it has racked up more than 110,000 likes on the site in just a few days.

It has also gained Robert plenty of fans for his dedication to making his son feel good about himself.

‘Dad of the year… You are a blessing, actually what boys need. Dads who support and encourage,’ wrote one user.

Another added: ‘This is so awesome of you to do. I am 33 and have the same g-tube. Since I was 12 I’ve always felt insecure about it. I just wanna say Thanks and how much your picture touched me.’

Along with an Instagram account dedicated to his son’s journey, Robert also posts about his boy on YouTube.
