But over the weekend, 3-year-old sister Camila put on her pink helmet to match brother. So of course, dad had to do the same.

The family said Camila did it because she didn't want her brother to "feel different."

Shayna snapped a few pictures and after posting it online, the family went viral.

"Forget real, that's real adorable," Julie tweeted in response to the photo.

Many families around the country with helmet-wearing babies also shared photos of their little ones. All while saluting the Gutierrez family.

Jonas is one lucky little boy!
