In what will likely be the most heartwarming video you'll watch today, the "old school Italian" father of a bisexual man who recently came out to his family opted to get "Born This Way" in Italian tattooed on his wrist in support of his son.

So: my brother came out that he was Bisexual last year and it was one of the hardest things he's ever had to do and one of the most courageous. He was most nervous about coming out to my old school Italian father who can be a bit of a hardass but mush at heart. So my brother decided to get born this way tattooed on his wrist in gagas handwriting after he met her, for obvious reasons, and it meant and still does a lot to him. My dad yesterday before Dylan came home for spring break got born this way in Italian tattooed on his wrist to show his acceptance and deep love for his only son who he is so proud of every day. I love my family

After the tattoo is presented, the father and son share a heartfelt embrace.

The video, which has since gone viral, has been picked up by the Miami Herald, Queerty and Towleroad, among other media outlets.
