ATLANTA — We get it. You’re sick of Tom Brady and the Patriots. (Unless you happen to be from the greater Boston area, in which case you’ve forfeited any right to complain sports-wise ever again.) You’re tired of seeing Brady and the Patriots celebrate, you’re tired of good things continuing to happen to a tall, handsome dude with a model wife and the greatest gig in American sports.

And that’s fine! But still: When you get down to it, Brady’s a parent, and just like any other parent, he wants to see his kids happy. And man, the joy on his daughter Vivian’s face here is just transcendent:

Come on! How great is that photo? Every parent wants to give their kid that moment of sublime happiness. And yeah, Brady’s kids are going to get a lot more than that in their lives. But still, that’s the kind of joy that makes you feel the tiniest bit good inside about a Patriots victory. Just the tiniest bit.

Say what you will about Brady, the man loves his family. He and his crew took their latest Super Bowl family photo this week, posting it on Instagram for the world to see.

“V, she’s the little cheerleader,” Brady said of his daughter earlier this week. “She’ll tell me, ‘Hey Daddy, did you hear me? I said, ‘Go Daddy go!’ And I’ll go, ‘Of course I heard you!’”

With a smile like that, who could miss her? Good to see good things happening for Tom Brady at last, isn’t it?
