— -- An adorable viral video of a sassy toddler insisting to her father that there's another man in her life is sending smiles across the Internet.

"She loves arguing with her daddy and she fake-cries over stuff all the time to get more attention," mom Chelsea Kirkland told ABC News today. "We literally live in a one-gas-station, one-red-light town. It's very small and I usually get 30 or 40 ‘likes’ on a video.

"I have no idea how it got out as much as it did."

Kirkland of Millry, Alabama, said she and her husband filmed their daughter Kennedy, 2, Sept. 6 ranting about having a boyfriend named Jared.

"Jared is her uncle's roommate," Kirkland said, with a laugh. "He plays football in college, so we went to the game with my brother and she saw him there, so she informed us that he was he boyfriend. We thought it was so funny."

After dad breaks the news that she doesn't have a boyfriend, Kennedy, in her sweet little voice cried, "Daddy said I don't have a boyfriend."

Kennedy's dad continues the joke and tells his daughter she's not allowed to date boys until she is 50 years old.

"For now, to satisfy her, he said 50 is OK," Kirkland said. "We'll definitely keep this [video] for when she gets older, goes on her first date or gets married."

The video received upwards of 245,000 views in four days.
