WATCH: Cute conversation between dad and toddler son goes viral

By Kristelle Bechayda

A heartwarming video of a father talking to his toddler is currently making rounds on social media.

Last week, a woman named Shanieke Pryor posted a video of her husband, comedian DJ Pryor, who seemed to be engaged in a casual ‘conversation’ with their 18-month-old son, Kingston, after they watched the season finale of ‘Empire.’

The video may seem like a typical occurrence at home where a father lounges on the couch with his child as they watch a television show. But what makes the video different is when Kingston seemed to understand as he answered back to his dad’s questions about the show.

Though his son’s response were mostly gibberish, Pryor continued to converse with Kingston about their thoughts on the season finale and what might be in store for the next season.

According to Pryor, his son appeared to be inspired by the television show and he simply filled in the blanks with what he thought Kingston might be saying.

As of this writing, the video has gotten about a million reactions and shares on Facebook.
