Everyone's talking about "BBC Dad" but we should be talking about the real stars of everybody's favourite Skype interview, BBC Dad's kids.

How Kelly managed to keep an extremely serious face while discussing the impeachment of South Korea's President Park Geun-hye via webcam while his wife flailed to remove their children is beyond us. At the press conference on Wednesday, the kids still had us all in stitches.

"We love our children very much and are happy that our family blooper, our family error there on television brought so much laughter to so many people," Kelly said seriously, while his two children were busy living their best lives.

 ​His 4-year-old daughter Marion was showing off her funky glasses and sucking on a lollipop, already bored and fed up with her life in the spotlight.

To show how much she did not care about any of this; she made the biggest power move and laid her head down on the desk as the camera panned to her. When she decided to join the press conference again, she gave a stare of boredom so withering that those at home couldn't help but feel her pain.

Hero.

"We thought it was a disaster," Kelly went on, explaining he profusely apologised to the BBC. Your kids are great, they are the bright spots of the year. In fact, we should loosen up a little bit more and be like them.
