Bill Belichick is a future Hall of Famer, a hugely successful coach, and a six-time Super Bowl champion as the leader of the New England Patriots.

But on the stage after Sunday’s Super Bowl win, he was playing the role of granddad.

He brought his granddaughter Blakely, wearing a sparkly Patriots shirt and hat, to celebrate with him while answering post-game questions from CBS broadcaster Jim Nantz.

Blakely is not yet three, and her grandfather has won a pair of Super Bowls in her young life. She is the daughter of Stephen Belichick, the head coach’s son and New England’s safeties coach.
