Dad is dancing on TikTok every day until his newborn son leaves the NICU originally appeared on goodmorningamerica.com
A Florida dad is touching millions by dancing on the app TikTok until his son heads home from the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
Chris Askew of Osteen, Florida, has danced in 23 videos viewed by 6 million, he told "Good Morning America."
The dad of four started making the videos after befriending another creative TikTok user.
Askew and his wife, Danielle, who are parents to Hunter, 5, Nathan, 3 and CJ, 1, welcomed a fourth son, Dylan, on Jan. 12.
Dylan was born two months premature, weighing 4 pounds, after his mom had a partial placenta abruption.
He is now being cared for in the neo-natal intensive care unit at Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women and Babies.
"He's been fighting since the day he was born," Askew, a firefighter and real estate company owner told "GMA." "He's been doing extraordinary well. We've had a couple of down days ... I know he's going to be a strong little person once he gets older."
Askew has so far danced with his wife's hospital co-workers, his fellow firefighters, on the roof of his house and on the home court of the NBA's Orlando Magics.
He's hoping to raise awareness on the difficulties moms and dads of preemies face.
Askew said he would like to launch a fundraiser for either the Ronald McDonald house, or parents who have to miss work to be with their babies.
