Daniels took the stage while holding his baby daughter Suri when his daughter Bella was overcome with nerves and emotion during a dress rehearsal for her first ever ballet recital.

I walked on holding Suri and stood next to her, trying to help build her confidence. I told her I loved her and that she's an amazing dancer. I asked if she wanted to dance with daddy and she nodded, so I thought I'd join in.


Jurors, police officers, and members of the prosecution have even been giving me twirls and plies as a token of appreciation for the video. Before having the girls I don't think I'd ever attempted any ballet moves before, but now everyone in Bermuda knows me for my toe-pointing.
