Jesse Nagy’s niece loves princesses, but she didn’t feel entirely comfortable wearing her favorite royal get-up out of the house.

Nagy, however, wanted 4-year-old Izzabella to feel comfortable being princess-y herself. So when the pair stepped out to a screening of Cinderella on Sunday, he donned a strapless purple prom dress he borrowed from a family friend.

Nagy, an actor from Detroit, had been visiting his sister in Florence, Alabama, and according to Alabama’s WAFF, had wanted to find a way to spend some quality time with his niece. The internet has agreed at the outing – and Nagy’s daring look – were a success, and the photo has since exploded on Facebook.

“Found out I’m internet famous,” Nagy joked in a follow-up on Facebook. “Within 3 hours I had more publicity then my 5 years of professional acting.”
