“Make Way for Ducklings!” is a classic children’s story, but when Bradford Anderson (Spinelli, General Hospital) tells it, it should be retitled, “Make Way for Dads!” In this funny video Bradford relishes telling the bedtime story to his daughter Finola, but he makes himself a part of the story!
“Make way for ducklings” in the native tongue. Nolie disapproved. She loves her R’s. #bostonaccent,” Anderson captioned the cute vid. Surrounded by her fluffy white bedsheets, adorable Finola looks ready for sleep, but Anderson is quite animated.
The beloved story about misplaced ducks takes place in Boston, and Anderson can’t help but affect a Bostonian accent as he reads out loud, saying of the wayward ducklings, “Look out you’ll get run oh-vaah!”
But quick thinking Finola knows better, and she promptly corrects her dad, shouting, “O-ver!” in a sleepy voice.
Whew, reading at bedtime is hard work for a little one. At this rate, Finola is going to have a hard time relaxing and falling asleep!
Not so for Anderson, who is his usual enthused self and clearly having a ball with the story. Anderson and his wife Keira also have an older daughter, Juna.
Anderson’s fans got a kick out of his bedtime routine: “I love seeing these little videos of you and your daughter,” “Too cute Brad! And I mean both of u! Awesome fun…lol.”
For some fans, hearing Anderson read to his sweet daughter brought back pleasant memories of their own: “I’m happy to see you appreciate these precious moments as they fleet by so quickly! My youngest is 17 & it seems like yesterday that this was us,” “I loved this book as a child!”
Wouldn’t it be great to see Spinelli read to little Maxie on General Hospital? Let’s hope we see more of the Spinmeister in the coming months!
