Bernard Jennings, a Democratic delegate from Miami, didn’t realize he and his son had become Internet famous until his daughter told him about the photo.

The black-and-white image, taken the first night of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, shows Jennings and his 16-month-old son Ethan with a Hillary Clinton campaign sign that read “Love trumps hate.” One of Ethan’s little hands is gripping one side of the sign as Jennings holds the other side.

The caption on the photo, which Clinton’s campaign shared on her Twitter and Instagram accounts, says, “Let’s make sure our future is in the right hands.”

Jennings said his daughter, Imani, sent him the photo and said, “Dad, you’re on Instagram!”

Ethan, whose mother, Rosie Soroka, also is attending the convention, has been great so far, Jennings said: “People love him.”

Jennings is a first-time delegate and former executive director for the Democratic Party in Miami-Dade County.

“It’s a good experience for (Ethan) to meet people, build up his courage” Jennings said. With a grin, he added, “And learn about the democratic process.”
