Multitasking Dad Photo Goes Viral, Moving Message Inspires Parents

Gisele Bundchen's famous "multitasking" photo has spawned yet another imitation- this time from a busy dad with a cause.

Last month, the supermodel shared a photo on Instagram that created an internet sensation. Stars including Peyton Manning and Emmy Rossum imitated Bundchen with their own "multitasking" snapshots, but none were better than this week's post by Doyin Richards, a Los Angeles dad.

While Bundchen's post featured her surrounded by a manicurist, hairstylist, and a makeup artist and breastfeeding her baby daughter, Richards shared his own form of "multitasking" in an attempt to change the way society views gender roles, particularly pertaining to fathers.

Richards' photo saw him styling his daughter's hair, while his younger daughter rested in a papoose on his chest.

"After 15 minutes of multitasking, the final result was a nice, tight ponytail for big sister and a happily sleeping baby in the carrier. Mission accomplished," the blogger for wrote along with the photo, which has swept the internet.

The California father explained his hope that the touching image will prove to the world that dads can multitask too. Richards' blog post is entitled "I Have a Dream: That People Will View a Picture Like This and Not Think It's a Big Deal."

For now, Richards' dream is not yet true- the photo has garnered over 200,000 "likes" on Facebook and has been shared thousands of times, making it definitely a big deal.

However, the busy dad is amazed by peoples' reactions to his post, and he is especially moved by the messages he has received from fellow dads.

"It's not a big deal," Richards concluded his blog post. "That's just what a Daddy Doin' Work is supposed to do."

Meanwhile, Bundchen's post in early December saw the model relaxed with her eyes closed all while makeup is being applied to her face, nails are getting pruned, and hair is getting curled. The model's one-year-old daughter Vivian plays with her necklace while breastfeeding as the beauty routine is underway.

"What would I do without this beauty squad after the 15 hours flying and only 3 hours of sleep? #multitasking," the former Victoria's Secret model wrote in the caption of a photo.
