Kornpat, who was likewise at the event with her children, said:

“In Thailand if it’s Mother’s Day, every mother has to join in activities with their children at school.

“The children’s parents are divorced and the mother is now living in Europe.

“This is why he showed up to the school wearing a dress to take the place of her in the celebration. He wanted the children not to feel left out because their mother had left them.”

Well if that’s not love and dedication, we don’t know what is!
