Instagram Can't Get Enough Of This Adorable Photo Of Buddy Valastro And His Daughter

Buddy Valastro may forever be known to his fans as the "Cake Boss," but his social media followers are getting an inside look at his personal life, specifically the kind of family man he is. When his oldest daughter, Sofia, left for college in August, the celebrity baker tweeted out a sentimental message, which tugged on the heartstrings of his followers.

On National Sons Day, Buddy shared a heartfelt message to his boys — Bartolo, Marco, and Carlo — along with a photo on Instagram, and once again, fans went all heart-eye emoji over it. You can see from his social media accounts that the Carlo's Bakery owner is just as, if not more so, dedicated to his family as he is to his work.

During the 12 seasons of "Cake Boss," the audience witnessed the occasional personal interaction and were introduced to many family members, including Lisa Valastro, his wife and best friend. The couple is just about to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary, and with all these sentimental social media posts, we can assume Buddy is cooking up something sweet to post, but can it top the latest photo of daddy and daughter?

Buddy Valastro's family is everything to him

There is no doubt that Buddy Valastro adores his children. The latest post of him planting a kiss on his smiling daughter's cheek has just melted the hearts of his fans and followers. During a visit to Sofia at Delaware University, the father and daughter snapped this selfie, and Buddy affectionately captioned it, "Visiting my @fiav_21 These are the important things in life, so happy to spend the weekend with you!

It's no surprise that more than 57,000 fans loved this sweet photo, and over 170 commented on it, including plenty of hearts and heart-eye emojis. Other comments include, "Such a sweet picture," "Beautiful photo! We love this!," and "Awww that is adorable." 

While the uber-talented "Cake Boss" is revered for his incredible edible creations — who can forget the "Transformers" and "Sesame Street" cakes? — his social media has us loving him for being an awesome dad and all-around sweetheart too.
