Man Dresses As A Princess To Boost His Niece's Confidence, Wins Hearts Everywhere

"Sometimes you just have to be a princess."

So says Jesse Nagy, the 25-year-old uncle to Izzy, age 4, who was a little nervous to wear a princess outfit on Sunday to see "Cinderella."

To give her the confidence boost she needed, Nagy offered to accompany her in a princess outfit of his own:

"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!'" Nagy told ABC News after a photo of the pair went viral on Reddit.

"If it’s going to make her happy, I'll do it," he added. "I don’t care."

Nagy, an actor from Michigan, wrote on Twitter that he's "happy people are seeing the importance of family bonding."

Uncle of the year, indeed.
