After being married seven years, a pair of doctors, Zion Lamm and her husband Kevin, a gastrologist, welcomed their new baby Zoe on May 6, 2023.
Zion, also a skincare social media influencer, has been sharing her postpartum and C-section recovery woes with her followers of almost 718,000.
But she has the help of her loving husband.
On August 10, the new mom posted an adorable video of her husband sitting on the bed while cradling their daughter.
It almost broke the internet.
The sweet clip, that Zion titled “teamwork babyyyy,” was synced to the popular TikTok audio “Thank you to my man,” and captured 2.3 million likes, with fans all over the world jumping into to comment on the overall sweetness of the father and his infant.
“This is so attractive. You got a good one girl!!! Such a good daddy,” writes one, while a second shares, “Beautiful, keep building those bonds.”
“Wow…that is too cute,” says a third.
Though the image of the handsome dad with his baby is heart melting enough attract the attention of online users, what really collected interest was the green contraption, slung over his shoulder, that he used to breastfeed their baby.
Holding baby Zoe’s head with both arms, the devoted dad was intently focused on his child, who looked up at him while she drank from a bottle that was nestled into the breastfeeding device.
Some users were curious about the device Kevin was using, that’s called the Beebo, a hands-free baby bottle holder.
“My husband joked about jerry rigging bottles to do this to our babies and when I showed him this he made me buy one for kids we don’t have yet,” writes one while another says, “who invented this cause that is genius!!!”

Meanwhile, there were some netizens who couldn’t see the sweetness beyond the father’s choice of clothing. One user expressed her displeasure and said, “Why is he wearing scrubs on the bed?” while another added “I have this weird thing about outside clothes being in my bed. Can’t imagine being in bed with scrubs lol.”
However, some others jumped in and defended the loving father. “People focusing on the scrubs but I see a dad bonding with his child,” says one. Another reminds the online community that he is a doctor and wouldn’t put his child at risk: “This could be his clean scrubs prior to work. He’s a doc and fully aware, I’m sure. He’s helping and bonding. That’s an A to me.”
There is nothing quite as precious as the bond a father shares with his daughter and we love that Kevin Lamm is starting this connection so early! Dads just don’t get the credit they deserve and we’re happy that Zion posted this clip so we can all see how wonderful this one is!
