Is Kirk Franklin the cutest father ever, or what?

The GRAMMY® Award-winning gospel artist, 45, gushed over his daughter Kennedy Elizabeth Franklin,

who turned 18 Monday, May 4.

“I feel like sitting in a corner, in some old dirty sweats, teeth not brushed, with a cup of old coffee, and a

box of pictures of my little girl,” he said in a Patheos blog post titled, “God’s Daughters: Treat His Like

You Would Treat Yours.”

Looks like the adorable dad is having a hard time letting Kennedy grow up.

According to Franklin, the moment he and his wife Tammy welcomed her, “Kennedy became the center

of attention for all of us. She was tiny with big eyes, and would dance and pretend like she was getting

married in her mother’s shoes and dresses.”

He continued, “Traveling became harder for me because I didn’t want to leave this little girl who robbed

me of every piece of my heart. Well, today, it’s back in pieces again, because that little girl is 18 today.”

Franklin isn’t shy at all about letting the world know how much he loves his family.
