Los Angeles Rams’ Andrew Whitworth just reacted to his 7-year-old daughter reading during his Super Bowl-winning performance on Sunday.
The Los Angeles Rams facing off against the Cincinnati Bengals was a riveting game and will be remembered for years to come. For the 40-year-old NFL player, one of the highlights was seeing his daughter go viral for reading a magazine during the game. Celebrating the incredible victory, the Los Angeles Rams tackle appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and discussed the hilarious moment.
“My daughter ended up going viral during the game,” Whitworth explained, referencing his youngest daughter Katherine. “She was reading the NFL program, and somebody said, ‘Man, [she] looks kinda disinterested here in the Super Bowl.’ “
The NFL star then went on to reveal that out of his four children, “That’s how it goes. She’s the uninterested one.”
“I don’t even think she told me bye the night before when I was going to the game. I like tried to look for her, and she was watching something on Netflix. She’s like, ‘Alright, Dad, bye! Just go to the Super Bowl,’ ” Whitworth continued.
Andrew Whitworth shares his tips on how to make the world a better place
Alongside being a professional football player, the athlete is very passionate about education and community service. Whitworth, who is now the oldest player in the NFL and the oldest tackle in NFL history, opened up to the talk show host about the tactics he and his wife use to improve the lives of others. More specifically, he believes that interacting with kids in a positive manner is the gateway to a better society.
“I think to us, we really believe that community service begins at our home, the way we teach our kids,” he began. “…We teach them to understand to make life more than just about yourself and having the opportunity to do things for other people will bring you a happiness and a satisfaction in your life that nothing else can do.”
“When you do something for someone else and make things more about them than just you, to me that’s the greatest thing we can teach them — how to love, how to appreciate people, how to accept people,” Whitworth added.
He concluded his speech with the sentiments, “And that’s how we can make our community better is making our kids understand that first and foremost.”
