Coolest Uncle Ever Wears a Princess Dress So His Niece Wouldn't Feel Embarrassed to Wear Hers
By John Boone
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:
