This dad is taking dad jokes to a whole new level!

Stay-at-home dad Kenny Deuss, from Antwerp in Belgium, came up with a novel way to respond to his girlfriend’s messages checking up on him and their baby girl, Alix, and asking for pictures of the tot.

“When we had our daughter and my girlfriend had to go back to work, she messaged me all the time to send photos, so she knew Alix was safe,” Kenny told The Sun.

Bored at answering the same question daily – “Is the baby okay?”, Kenny, a sound and light engineer, began sending Mom pictures of their little one in ridiculously perilous situations. In one, she’s toting guns; in another, she’s trapped in their washing machine; then handling power tools; poking at electrical sockets; boozing; and even driving a car.

“I decided to make something fun out of it,” the dad said. 

Kenny has been sharing the cleverly PhotoShopped images of the adorable 18-month-old on his Instagram page called @onadventurewithdad.

Alix has been game for all the faked photos, Kenny said, and she loves posing for them.

“Alix is an easy-going, happy child. She is always smiling with a funny character, trying to make us laugh mixed with a hint of stubbornness,” he told Bored Panda.

“In many photos, I just hold Alix and then chop myself out. Then I add a specific background to create a dangerous situation.”

The account, which was started a few months ago, has over 41 000 followers, and Alix’s mom is the biggest fan of all.

“My partner thinks it’s brilliant. The first time she probably doubted whether it was real or not. Usually, I take the photos in such a way that it is just a bit too over the top.

“She [my girlfriend] always makes sure the pictures were safely made. She's always happy with the result.”

And it doesn’t seem like the dad is going to stop anytime soon.

Kenny, who hasn’t had much work during the coronavirus pandemic, has signed up for a PhotoShop course to improve his already-impressive skills.
