Melbourne Dad Ash Mills has become an internet sensation with his Instagram account amassing almost 80 thousand followers.

Ash posts videos of himself copying his 9 year old daughter Alex’s gymnastics routines and some of the results are truly hilarious. When Ash’s daughter Alex took up gymnastics 3 years ago, Ash began joining in to encourage her and the Instagram account was started when the family realised how funny Ash’s efforts at gymnastics were.

Ash said, “I had no fear and I was happy to try it. A couple of things we did we quite funny so my partner started to film them. We laugh an awful lot. My daughter trains for 30 hours, six days a week and it’s serious, so we do what we can to keep it fun.”

What a great Dad and he’s actually quite good at some of the gymnastics moves, I am sure that Alex loves him joining in her passion. Check out Ash’s Instagram account for more videos.
