Mother's Day is celebrated on Aug. 12 in Thailand, and schools usually hold a Mother's Day ceremony where children kneel at their mother's feet to thank her for all that she has done for them.

Chatchai's friend Kornpat Ae Sukhom captured this adorable moment between Chatchai and Ozone and shared it on Facebook, where it went viral with more than 6 million views.

Her post was also shared more than 54,000 times.

Kornpat told BuzzFeed News that Chatchai decided to wear a dress to the event because he didn't want his sons to feel left out because their mother couldn't attend.

Kornpat, who often helps Chatchai to look after Ozone and Imsome, said that the boys' parents are divorced and that their mother now lives in Europe.

"Everyone enjoyed it and all laughed and took photos with him," she said. "His two sons weren’t quite sure what was going on and why Dad was wearing a dress."

It made people super emotional.
