This new dad isn't giving himself any breaks.

In a hilarious America’s Funniest Home Videos clip, a sleeping—and seemingly very tired—father reacts to the cries of his baby and begins to comfort the child as he lays in a recliner. The only issue? The dedicated parent isn't actually holding the newborn, and begins soothing the imaginary babe on his chest while he’s snoozing. The camera then pans over to the little one, who is being held and comforted by a woman that we would guess is its mother. Seriously precious.

The show shared the short on their YouTube channel, and it has already racked up close to 12,000 views.
