On Friday, Valerie had an accident at school. His wife, Connie, told her husband that she was crying and that she wanted to go home.

"My heart kind of just broke," the dad told BuzzFeed News. So, he splashed some water on himself.

He said that he quietly entered the school office, and then asked for Valerie's backpack to cover up his own "accident."

"She looked at me with just the biggest incredulity," he said.

Valerie found it hilarious and her dad made her feel a lot better. "She was laughing about it," he said. "It was so funny."

Around four years ago, the teen fell on her face while ice-skating. "He FaceTimed me," she said. "He had vividly painted a black eye that matched mine."

Now that's love.
