Henry Winkler Brings Kelly Clarkson To Tears With Message To Her Daughter

A legendary Hollywood actor shared some touching words of wisdom that moved one of the biggest names in music to tears.

As most people know, children can be incredibly mean to one another. Kids have a knack for figuring out an area of great sensitivity and then go on to attack it relentlessly. This can make life miserable for the children on the receiving end of such treatment.

On an episode of “The Kelly Clarkson Show”, Henry Winkler, best known as Arthur "Fonzie" Fonzarelli on “Happy Days”, was the guest. Kelly and Henry were discussing his many current projects, and the subject of dyslexia came up. 

Kelly admitted that her daughter, River, is dyslexic and has been receiving trouble from her fellow classmates because of it. Kelly’s daughter, who is in the second grade, has been getting bullied at school. 

Kelly pointed out that Henry is dyslexic as well but has not let it stop him from achieving great things in life, including writing books.

“I find it amazing to tell my daughter that you’ve written, like, 40 books and you’re dyslexic,” she said. “’Cause she was getting bullied, like, at school for not being able to read like the other kids.”

Later in the segment, Henry turned to the camera and gave Kelly’s young daughter an uplifting and heartfelt message.

“River, I got it. All right, how you learn has nothing to do with how brilliant you are,” he said.

While the audience gave Henry a hearty round of applause, Kelly grabbed a tissue. She was moved to tears by Henry’s touching and sweet words of encouragement for her daughter.

Henry’s simple and kind gesture is likely something that Kelly and River will remember for a long time. As the saying goes, it costs nothing to be nice.
