“Send me the pic of u and ur boy toy.”
A viral tweet from a gay teen in California is giving the Internet all the feels.
Louis Jr. received a text from his father asking for a photo of him and his boyfriend. Louis Sr. wanted the picture of Junior and his “boy toy” to brag about to his co-workers.

What's even cuter is that he doesn't say send me a picture of you & your boyfriend. He calls him your boy toy😆☺️

Louis Jr. told Buzzfeed he’s thrilled his dad is getting praised: “I really love the comments towards my dad. Everyone was telling [me] how much they love my dad and [calling him] Father of the Year.”
Louis Sr. said he’s just as proud of his son: “Always. Ever since he came out to us,” Dad wants other parents to support their kids, as well. “We brought them [into] this world, you know.”
I have a billion pictures I’m trying to show everyone but I truly had such a great weekend with you. You have me on a cloud & I’m soooo excited to see where it takes me. pic.twitter.com/drlX9aKTyU
