US-based dad Roland Pollard and his 4-year-old daughter Jayden are blowing up the internet performing jaw-dropping stunts. 

A cheerleader for more than a decade, Pollard has been teaching his toddler daughter incredible stunts since she was in nappies. 

"We started the second she could stand up on her own, but [she] didn’t take it seriously until about 3 months ago, around December of 2019,” Pollard said in an interview.  

The gravity-defying routines sees Pollard spinning, lifting, and flipping his daughter, and clearly the trust between the two is on another level. 

"I believe that fear is a taught or learned trait and I've never given her a reason to be afraid," he explained
