Six-year-old Morgan donned her Belle dress for a special dance with the Beast.
But what she didn't expect was who was behind the mask: Dad.
Brandon Richards spends a lot of time away from his family because of his Navy career, so he and wife Elizabeth always try to make his time at home extra special, according to T&T Creative Media.
After a six-month deployment in the Pacific, Richards decided to surprise his daughter, Morgan, by dressing up as the Beast from "Beauty and the Beast" and sharing a special father-daughter dance.
"You can't really bank on when they're coming home, the exact time of day, so really, the element of surprise really always have to be there," Elizabeth said. "I just want to make it extra special for them."
"It's just a surreal feeling," added Brandon. "To do something they can remember like this is awesome and to do something they're going to remember. It means a lot."
Check out the video above to see their sweet dance.
