He has reason to smile with such a beautiful family! His little girls are going to be stunning. I wonder if they’ll try for a little Prince?🙂

The daughter facing the camera reminds me of a straight-haired Shirley Temple. Adorable!

Aww, what a wonderful way to bring in his birthday. I feel sorry for the man when his daughters are suddenly teenagers and young adults haha. He’ll be dueling boys for sure.

I do wonder if they will try for a prince at times but, it seems he’s destined for daughters.
