Everyone has fallen in love with this dad’s letter to Ariana Grande
A father of three Ariana Grande fans has penned an open letter to the pop star, offering some “redneck love from a daddy of daughters” following the heartbreaking events at Manchester arena.
The letter by Patrick Millsaps from Georgia, U.S. has since gone viral, gaining almost 20K retweets and over 40K likes.
“I am the father of three daughters — ages 13, 12 and 12. So, you have been a part of our family for years,” wrote Millsaps whose girls are named Morgan, Alison and Kendall.
“On occasion your songs have stayed on the radio AFTER I have dropped the girls off at school. I will neither confirm nor deny that I have personally seen every episode of Sam and Kat,” he continued.
Millsaps told Grande he saw her tweet — in which she said she was “so so sorry” — but he wanted to set the record straight.
from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don’t have words.

“You don’t have a dadgum thing to apologize for,” wrote Millsaps, adding that she was in no way responsible for the tragic events which transpired.
Millsaps advised “on behalf of all dads who love your…um…whose daughters love your music,” that she should only sing again when she feels ready.
“Music is the international language of peace. Every time you open your mouth and share that incredible God-given gift to the world, you make this crappy world a little less crappy,” said Millsaps.
He added that he appreciates that there are people like Grande in the world. “Take care of you first. Your fans aren’t going anywhere,” he said.
