A 3-year-old boy's attempts to distract his father at a press conference to introduce a gay marriage bill in Minnesota have turned him into an Internet star.

Representative Karen Clark and Senator Scott Dibble, the measure's champions in the House and Senate respectively, unveiled the long-expected bill which seeks to make Minnesota the 10th state to legalize marriage equality at a Wednesday press conference at the Minnesota State Capitol.

Also making statements to the press were gay and lesbian couples raising children in Minnesota.

While holding his son Emmett and with his partner of 7 years James Zimmerman in the background holding twin son Gabriel, Paul Melchert, a pediatrician, is repeatedly interrupted by Emmett, who wants his dad to “stop talking.”

Emmett wins over the audience by placing his hand over dad's mouth, attempting to steal dad's speech and even running a toy truck over dad's head. (The video is embedded on this page. Emmett appears about 15 minutes into the video. Visit our video library for more videos.)
