“I’m a Daddy and I Know It” Parody Goes Viral

Hear that? It's the sound of millions of women's ovaries sighing after watching a viral video entitled, "I'm a Daddy and I Know It" posted by a Utah father named Chad Morton who calls himself DaddyCrazy5 on YouTube.

Morton, who appeared on "Fox and Friends" this morning with his spouse Angela and their five kids, credited the idea to his wife, who initially wanted to send it to their loved ones as a holiday video card.

The video, which has racked up over half a million views and 600,000 shares on Facebook since it was posted on Christmas Eve, parodies LMFO's smash hit, "I'm Sexy and I Know It" but instead of hot girls in skimpy clothing, DaddyCrazy5 takes viewers through his typical day as dad to a set of triplets and two other small children.

We see DaddyCrazy5 tripping over toys, carting his brood around in a wagon, juggling diapers, playing house, driving a minivan, using his kids as barbells, and dancing his way through it all while rapping lyrics such as, "This is how I roll; poopy diapers, sippy cups, out of control!" and "My minivan is full and I ain't afraid to show it!"

The fact that DaddyCrazy5 is good-looking is just icing on the cake. Some comments include: "That's one sexy daddy" and "You're the perfect daddy!" and fellow fathers even chimed in writing, "Way to represent us Dads!" and "As one dad to another, great job!"

While parodying the LMFO hit is hardly new-variations include "I'm Pregnant and I Know It", "We're Trekkies and We Know It" and "I'm Farming and I Grow It"-Morton's video has evoked a huge reaction from the parenting set.

Here's hoping Chad gets a record deal-or at the very least, a babysitter.
