A heart-warming video has emerged that shows a dad who works three jobs presenting his daughter with her dream dress ahead of her school dance.

The dad, from Pennsylvania, USA, had previously told her that he couldn't afford the dress, but managed to squirrel away enough money to buy it.

14-year-old Nevaeha Smith, his daughter, had been disappointed that she couldn't have the dress, but recognised that her dad was working three different jobs to make ends meet.

When she showed up to meet him at one of those jobs, he produced a dress bag and showed her that he had managed to buy her dream dress for her after all.

To say that she was happy about it is somewhat of an understatement.

She jumped out of her seat and wrapped him in about the biggest hug that you're ever likely to see. She also burst into tears at her dad's generosity and determination to make his daughter happy.

Her Dad, 36-year-old Ricky Smith said that his daughter had come to him to ask for the dress because she knew that the $200 price tag was probably out of their range.

He told ABC News: "I looked at the price and I was like, 'Uh, not really sure, but I can see what I can do,"

He discussed the matter with Nevaeha's mother, who said that they should surprise her. He asked her into her work, and mum came along with a camera ready to capture the moment.

Ricky continued: "I was working at McDonald's that day and I put the dress in the back,

"She came, and I brought it out and told her that her grandmother bought it for her and I told her, 'This ain't the dress you wanted, but I hope you like it.'"

"To see the look on her face it was priceless. All I can really do was smile."

After the surprise, Nevaeha said: "My heart felt like there was more love in it than there was before,

"I love him and I'm really happy that's he's my father."

Since it was posted online the video of the touching moment has been viewed more than 1,000,000 times.

It was originally posted by Style Exchange Boutique, a clothes shop in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

They posted the video to Facebook with the caption: "Now this is really what being a dad is all about! Her dad works three jobs and surprised her with her dream dress for 8th grade formal after telling her it was not a financial possibility,

"He made it happen and surprised her at his work! Definitely daddy's little girl! We're so happy we could be a part of it!

"Happy Father's Day to all the amazing dads out there that go above and beyond for their kids day in and day out!"

Father's Day was celebrated this year on Sunday June 16th.
