Jane the Virgin star Justin Baldoni isn’t just a Hollywood celeb. Nope. He’s also a totally loving dad. And he’s a dad who has taken to social media, more than a few times, to show the adoration for and inspiration he gets from his family. Aww. He’s adorable — and so is his fam. When Baldoni posted a pic of his daughter, 2-year-old Maiya, on Instagram, he raised eyebrows. In an entirely good way. Check out the super-sweet post and you’ll see why we’re loving it!

We’re doing everything we can to teach our daughter that she is so much more than her appearance. I try to remind myself to compliment her on her kindness, her intelligence, her patience, humor, vocabulary and everything else! We are constantly (lovingly) reminding people how smart she is when the first thing said when seeing her is how pretty she is. But It’s hard! As a culture we’ve been so conditioned to compliment children on their appearance instead of their intelligence. However – this morning my 2 1/2 year old daughter woke up and somehow became a teenager. 1st of all WTF!? 2n’d- My God she is beautiful!!! Truth is truth right? What’s also true is that she clearly got it from her mama. And since I tell her mama she’s beautiful every day… I’m gonna allow myself to say it to her too. As long as she knows that it’s her HEART that makes her appearance beautiful. Moderation is everything. ❤️ #dearmaiya #parenting

Baldoni doesn’t want his daughter thinking that she’s only a pretty face. Sure, she’s absolutely adorable. But that’s not all. And the actor wants her to know it.

In the post, Baldoni writes, “We’re doing everything we can to teach our daughter that she is so much more than her appearance.” He goes on to add, “I try to remind myself to compliment her on her kindness, her intelligence, her patience, humor, vocabulary and everything else! We are constantly (lovingly) reminding people how smart she is when the first thing said when seeing her is how pretty she is.”

The actor continues to explain, “As a culture we’ve been so conditioned to compliment children on their appearance instead of their intelligence.” Justin, you’re so, so, so right!
