“BBC Dad” and his family are charming people around the world again.
Robert Kelly, a professor at Pasan National University in Busan, South Korea, went viral last week when his 4-year-old daughter, Marion, burst into his office while he was the middle of an interview with the BBC. Moments later, her 8-month-old brother, James, followed.
The family appeared at a press conference in South Korea Wednesday where Marion stole the show again. She appeared stoic in photographs, sucking on a lollipop while rocking her pink glasses and trench coat.
“My real life punched through the fake cover I had created on television,” Kelly told reporters. “This is the kind of thing a lot of working parents can relate to.”
After the press conference, social media lit up with love for little Marion.
“If she isn’t President of Earth by the time I’m 80, I’ll be bitterly disappointed,” wrote David Llewllyn on Twitter.
“Let’s just take a moment to appreciate the style & composure of Marion, the kid who crashed her dad’s BBC interview,” wrote another Twitter user.
Kelly said at first he though the gaff would be frowned upon by the BBC. He was shocked when the blooper was posted to social media and received such a positive response.
“We love our children very much,” said Kelly. “And we are happy that our family blooper, our family error there on television, brought so much laughter to so many people.”
