A Nampa, Idaho father didn’t realize that ‘selfies’ he took with his daughter, Macy, would go viral on the web.  


Macy Wheeler was born four weeks ago. Ever since she was born, her father, Eddie, was snapping photos of his precious daughter.

With a face as cute as Macy, her father could not resist getting in on the action.

"We've been putting pictures up ever since she was born on Facebook," said Eddie Wheeler.

Thinking it would be a funny idea, Eddie decided to start taking ‘selfies’ with his daughter.

In each photo, Eddie tries to copy his daughter’s facial expressions and snap a photo before it changes.

"Went to sleep that night and woke up and it was on the front page and all over the place," Eddie told NBC affiliate KTVB.

The photos have been viewed more than a half-million times in just the first 24-hours.
