‘Greatest Romantic’ Dad Sets High Standards

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One Kentucky-based Casanova is setting high standards in the romance department.

Phil Roberts has just been declared “The Greatest Romantic” by Princess Cruises, after winning an online video contest where he revealed why he’s the king of romance.

Roberts’ heartfelt video, which can be seen on, is a poem narrated by his three-year-old daughter, Ashley, about the ups and downs of his marriage to his wife.

The video describes how Roberts proposed to his wife 10 years ago by turning his apartment into a romantic, starry beach scene, complete with sand and beach chairs, and how their love has grown over the years with the birth of their five kids.

Roberts is proud to receive the winning title, and he’s already setting high romantic standards for his loved ones.

He says, “My guy friends are like, ‘Man, Phil, you’re making us look bad!’ They have to step up their game.”

Roberts says little Ashley’s future boyfriends are also going to have a lot to live up to when it comes to romancing her.

He laughs, “Talk about pressure!”

Roberts’ winning prizes include writing a romance column for Princess Cruises, becoming an honorary member of the line’s Department of Romance, and a relaxing, seven-day cruise with his wife.
