Kissing babies might come with the territory when you work in politics, but can you blame Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong for going all paternal around these adorable tots? Our hearts melted after seeing this photo of him cuddling five-month-old Clarabelle at an ASEAN Para Games chess game, and needless to say, there’s way more where that came from.

Keep reading to see photos of PM Lee succumbing to the cuteness of kids.

The occasion: Ang Mo Kio & Sengkang West Tree Planting Day
Cuteness level: 5/5 (Why is this giving us major Up vibes?)

“Balloons have a magical allure for young ones,” PM Lee wrote on a Facebook post about the Ang Mo Kio & Sengkang West Tree Planting Day earlier this year. “This 11-month-old girl showed evident interest in them, so I picked her up and carried her over to the balloons so that she could grab one.”

“Was a prop in the show. Held a hoop with the Vijayan siblings for the Scarlet Macaw’s ‘fly through’,” he wrote on Facebook. Of course, he had to follow that up with a photo of himself and his “prop partners” (his wording, not ours).

Nothing says “grandpa mode” like puttering around in a garden with kids. During the Clean & Green SG50 Carnival, PM Lee helped a lovable pair of Pasir Ris-Punggol residents water a Jelutong tree at a mass tree-planting.

Those smiles. Those army fatigues. The fact that PM Lee squatted down to take a wefie with a pint-sized troupe of performers. Can this picture BE any cuter? Find us a coffin because we’ve succumbed to a fatal case of the feels.

“Showing 19-month-old Ding Hang how to press the button on my iPhone, to take a selfie,” PM Lee wrote. Awwwww.

Thanks to their urban upbringing, kids nowadays can be a little bit skittish around wildlife – hence the helping hand from PM Lee.

“Had to gently nudge the children closer to this beautiful Victoria Crowned Pigeon. They were slightly apprehensive when I asked them to go nearer for a better view."

While most children would only scramble this hard for Mickey Mouse or Iron Man, “5 year old Daven was so excited he shouted my name when I approached his home.” Someone give this kid a medal!

When was the last time you sat on a swing? Maybe the reason PM Lee has such a way with kids is that he’s clearly still in touch with his inner child.
