And according to Xonecole, the secret behind Benny and Jaxyn's healthy locks is homemade shampoo derived from natural ingredients.

'I look at our hair like a plant. Most plants need natural ingredients to grow and stay alive, and honestly, our souls and our bodies need the same thing,' he said. 

But it's not just their full heads of hair that have us swooning.

Benny admits to putting his daughter 'on a pedestal' and prides himself on teaching her the importance of self-love and self-respect. 

'What my daughter knows is that if she loves herself first, love will align in her friendships, relationships, and all aspects of her life,' he said.

'She's a beautiful girl who's gonna be a pretty woman, but I teach her to love herself first.

'She doesn't need to seek that in a man or from watching TV or her friends.

'I teach her to walk in her natural elegance, and I make it a point to show her that she's protected daily. That way, she remains fearless,' he added. 

Right, where do we get ourselves a Benny?
