Initialized Capital and Reddit co-founder, as well as husband to Serena Williams, Alexis Ohanian, is taking steps to learn how to style his daughter's curls.

Ohanian tweeted about it last week, saying that he applied to four natural hair Facebook groups.

"I told them it was to keep getting better at doing my daughter's hair," he wrote.

Ohanian also joked, saying, "I hope they don't auto-reject my application when they see my profile photo."

Since posting, the tweet has racked up over 21,000 likes and over 400 comments, with many people praising his efforts.

One person commented, "Let me know how it goes. Asking for a friend," along with a photo of a young toddler with natural curls.

Another supportive father wrote, "It's a long journey, my friend! I'm 8 yrs in."

PlanetDaily noted, "If all dads were as good as you the world would be a better place."

In a later post, Ohanian also responded to a recommendation from The Black List founder Franklin Leonard saying that he "got a copy" of a book titled "Hair Love," which highlights the relationship between black fathers and daughters.

From hairstyling lessons to foot tickles, Ohanian seems to enjoy every part of fatherhood and a lot of people are rooting him on.
