Prankster Kid Calls Shaquille O'Neal Poster 'Daddy'

A little girl in Coachella Valley, California, recently gave her mother a laugh when she engaged in a conversation with a poster of Shaquille O’Neal, jokingly calling him “Daddy”.

Mom Alison Baker told Storyful that she couldn’t quite believe it when four-year-old Kingsley started calling O’Neal dad.

She said that the family got split up while grocery shopping. “My daughter and I were looking for the guys when she yelled, ‘Oh, there’s my dad!’”

“She insisted he was on the other side of the store,” Baker continued. “So we got over there and she started talking to Shaq, calling him dad and thinking she was so funny.”

Baker said this was Kingsley’s first prank on her parents. “It was a good one!” she said. Credit: Alison Baker via Storyful
