Ben Schock is your typical father-of-a-daughter — he always wants what's best for his baby girl. So you better believe that if you're the young man trying to date her, you're going to be under close watch.
Ben's wife, Sharee, a professional photographer, was taking pictures of their 15-year-old daughter, Ricarra, and her boyfriend before their homecoming dance, when Ben decided it would be the perfect time to show her boyfriend how much he cares about his little girl.
Sharee mentioned that Ben had joked before the photo shoot that "he would do to the boyfriend whatever was done to our daughter," so he decided to jump in and photobomb the homecoming shoot to do exactly that — and posed with his daughter's boyfriend in the same way the young couple had.
Since being posted to Imgur, the side-by-side images have been viewed over three million times, and Ben has received praise for approaching protectiveness with humor. Sharee said everyone was laughing during the photo shoot, "We hope that above anything else this picture shows the love and protective nature of a dad with his little girl, but in a playful and not-so-intimidating manner."
