Meet the Hilarious Dad Who Turned His Kids’ Antics Into Twitter Fame

This is one funny dad! James Breakwell has been tweeting about his kids’ hilarious comments and silly antics for the last four years. The 30-year-old father of four daughters — ages 5, 3, 22 months and 5 months — jokes to Us Weekly on Tuesday, April 19, that "dealing with a horrific diaper blowout isn't so bad if I can turn it into a tweet that makes strangers on the internet validate my existence."

Now, get to know the man behind the tweets! Us Weekly Video caught up with Breakwell while he had some downtime from documenting his girls’ latest adorable moments.
