Bakery owner with six-month-old son reveals how her husband experiences ‘daddy privilege’

A mom has gone viral for revealing how her husband is treated differently when she’s alone with their six-month-old baby, claiming he’s treated like “a hero” for doing basic parenting.

Bakery owner Chloe Sexton, 27, of Memphis, Tennessee, shared a video on TikTok revealing that her husband Tyler is confronted with “Daddy Privilege” while taking care of their son Theodore – a term used when men are praised for doing the normal duties expected of mothers.

At TiKTok, Chloe explained how she often takes Theodore with her when she works and runs errands, including going to wholesalers where she has to pick up 400lb bags of flour and butter with a baby strapped to her – adding: ‘no one blinks an eyelid’ .

But when her husband had a day off and helped her, he was “treated like a hero” and praised.

“I have a nice little story about daddy privilege,” she explained in the clip that now has more than four million views.

“You all know if you’ve been following me for a while that I’m an entrepreneur. My husband has a job. I have a business, my husband has a job. Can’t make that any clearer, right?

“Well, my bakery requires that we buy certain wholesale ingredients from Restaurant Depot every week.

“You’ve seen me make videos of it before where I was wearing him (Theodore) or massively pregnant and buying 400lbs of flour and 100lbs of butter, and that’s a weekly thing. The list goes on, like — it’s a lot,’ she went on.

“So last week, on the day I usually do it, my husband had a day off and he decided to do it for me, but he also had the baby that day.

‘If I tell you, the way this man was treated like a hero – a hero.

‘Mind you, the same people see me there every week. I was recognized by one of the cashiers. She says, “Hey, do you have a TikTok?” “Yes, yes I do…”

“I’m strapped in with a baby or seven months pregnant, carrying 100-pound bags of flour at a time in the back of my Subaru. Meanwhile I get a lot of… “nothing to see here” “Just a woman doing women’s things, looting her a**.

“But my husband, my husband is carrying the baby and he goes to Restaurant Depot on mom’s business and it’s, ‘Oh my god, look at you! Oh my god, you work so hard.’

‘He [my husband] said, “Honestly it was a bit embarrassing”.

“Someone walked past him and said, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s a whole baby!’

“Yeah, it’s his… He’s literally not a hero. He’s just a dad, just a parent, doing the same things I do every week,” she continued.

Dozens of parents were quick to say they’d had similar experiences.

The bar is literally on the floor for dads, it’s so sad, one wrote.

“Greatness is expected of women, but never appreciated,” added another.

A third said: ‘Mothers are obligated, fathers are privileged’

A fourth continued: ‘I recognize it. We need to stop Dad’s thinking that basic parenting deserves praise and public applause.”

Speaking to BuzzFeed, Chloe said she was “lucky to have a husband/life partner who is a self-proclaimed feminist” and found the experience “embarrassing.” Chloe and Tyler are pictured

She added that her typical day involved waking up at six.45 a.m. to prepare Theodore and seven-year-old bonus son Mason for school.

She then takes Mason to school and goes home to bake, before taking Theodore to daycare and going to her local wholesaler for ingredients.

After this, she spends hours making thousands of giant cookies and cleaning a commercial kitchen, using breastfeeding pumps before picking Mason from school, doing homework, and cooking dinner.

“In my opinion, ‘daddy privilege’ is subtle overhanded men stepping aside as parents, giving them credit for just… being older. Did you feed the baby? What a great father! Did you hold the baby while Mommy was in the bath?’ she explained.

‘So thoughtful of you! Did you pick up something for dinner? What would your family do without you?! It’s all those little ways moms do exactly what the world expects them to do without thinking about it and then watch dads get praised for just showing up.”

She added that Chloe believes it is important for society to realize that the days when men are the sole breadwinner of the family are over — and that women should be just as commended for childcare as men.
