Macklemore top-knotting his two-year-old’s hair is the cheer up we all needed


Macklemore and Ciara hung out with their respective kids at an Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks game earlier this week and the situation quickly turned to … top knots!

“Daddy duties”

While it’s not rare to see parents sorting out their kiddo’s hair, it is quite unusual to see a world famous rapper doing it at a football game, especially when they’re being filmed by another world famous entertainer. 

“This is the real deal right here. Daddy duties,” Ciara confirms as she stands over Benjamin Hammond Haggerty aka Macklemore while he gets two-year-old Sloane’s hair tidied up and out of the way. 

We have to say we totally agree.

Ciara was at Monday’s game with her three-year-old son, Future, and is married to Seattle Seahawks player Russell Wilson. Russell and Ciara also have a child together too, a daughter called Sienna born in April this year.

We have to say that we’re super glad she whipped out her phone to capture this cute knotty Macklemore moment, doing her bit to bin misguided notions of masculinity – and showing dads doing important stuff for their kids.

“Great job, Ben!”

Yesterday, Ciara shared the video on Instagram, because she knew we too needed to see this snappy technique and witness how famous people have playdates just like regular humans.

“I looked over and @Macklemore was hooking up Sloanes hair! 😂.. Classic! Great Job Ben! Fun Times With Our Kiddos! #GoHawks” Ciara posted. 

Followers were pretty into the top knot situation, truth be told.

“She’s gonna appreciate these moments as she gets older. He did excellent,” one fan posted.

“Awww, every dad knows that one hair style,” another noted.

Macklemore and wife Tricia Davis got engaged in 2013 – after dating for 7 years. Sloane was born in May 2015 and the pair got married a month later, in June.

Excitingly, they announced that they are expecting a second child a few weeks ago so there may be more topknots in our future.

More Macklemore dad life-ing
