Dad shares the heartwarming moment he and his terminally-ill toddler share their final dance together.

The video shows UK dad, Kevin McGuire, dancing with his daughter Millie as he holds her in his arms.

The doting dad sways from side to side to the sound of the band Stone Foundation while kissing his baby girl’s forehead.

Millie, who turns two this month, is now in palliative care. She was born with brain damage and also suffers from a metabolic bone disorder, the Daily Mail reports.

Mr McGuire and his wife Marcia have made the most of every moment with their daughter knowing it could be their last.

“We have accepted that Millie will pass away but we refuse to get down about it as we are too busy making lovely memories with her,” Mr McGuire said.

“The one thing that does get to me is the knowledge I will never ever dance with Millie at landmark birthdays or her wedding.

“When I see videos of dads dancing with their daughters at events, as lovely as it is, it kills me inside. It’s the little things.”

‘I sing this song to Millie regularly but to have the lovely chaps from Stone Foundation play it for her so she can dance with her dad and celebrate her upcoming birthday is something I’ll cherish forever.

‘Millie woke up during it and looked at me and made the little cute noise she makes.’

Such a beautiful moment to share. May he hold this memory in his heart for always x
