Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? Uncle Jesse is.

We’re mixing fairy tales here, but our point stands: When 4-year-old Izzy wanted to see Disney's new Cinderella movie dressed like a princess, but was feeling a little embarrassed about it, her uncle Jesse Nagy put his foot down. Or, his dress on, as it were.

"I really wanted to spend time with her, so I said 'let's go have a princess day,’” Jesse, 25, told ABC News. “She said, ‘You could be a princess too.’ We made the trade-off and I said, ‘OK, we can both be princesses,’ but she had to have the crown. I thought, Fair enough!”

So where did Jesse get a princess dress big enough to fit a grown man on such short notice? “That actually was a prom dress from my brother-in-law’s sister,” he laughed. “I borrowed it. I think prom was last weekend.”

He almost didn’t go as a princess either. “I wanted to do the prince thing,” he claims. “But it’s actually difficult to find a suit that [quickly].” Thankfully. If he did, we wouldn’t have these adorable photos:

As for the pictures going viral? “I think it’s funny. All I did was, I think what anybody else would do, honestly,” Jesse explains. “If it’s going to make her happy, I'll do it, I don’t care."

Meanwhile, across the pond, a dad (who owns a tattoo parlor, which isn't relevant except that it makes this more awesome) and daughter were spotted on the underground heading to a Frozen Sing-a-Long just outside of London:

He deserves props too. Because that is just... We have no words. Amazing.
