On February 3, the New England Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Rams 13 to 3, becoming Super Bowl champions for the sixth time in franchise history.
This was the Patriots’ 10th Super Bowl appearance thanks in large part to quarterback Tom Brady and head coach Bill Belichick.
However, while winning your sixth Super Bowl is sweet, celebrating with your family afterward makes it even sweeter. And for many others, this win is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
So here are a series of pictures showing Patriots players with their wives, children, and families after Super Bowl LIII:

Being a professional athlete can sometimes mean being away from your family for longer than any father or mother may like.
But when all the hard work, dedication, and missed goodnight kisses leads to moments like these, it can all seem very worth it in the end.
And moments like the ones above are priceless.
