The 40-year-old actor and father of two also wrote a heartwarming caption about how he and Zia would bond every night, even after a tiring day of work. “Every night before we sleep, this little princess comes to my workspace as I send last-minute emails and messages, complete my voice over for Amazing Earth, and pack up my stuff to wrap up the busy day,” the actor shared.
Dingdong also shared that he has been taking formal guitar lessons and was practicing Neil Diamond’s “I Am, I Said” the night of the video. However, Zia came to him and requested to sing together. “Tonight, that little one just walked up to me while I was in the middle of studying ‘I am, I Said’ by Neil Diamond. She went behind the guitar, hugged it from my standpoint, and started to strum,” Dingdong said.
“She said, ‘Dad, let’s sing this song.’ She did her thing. She strummed— not yet with chords ha— and sang. In the process of executing each stroke, each breath— I was melting,” he added.
