There is nothing quite like the birth of a new baby, and Indianapolis Colts wide receiver paid homage to his newborn daughter following a touchdown — and it will probably make you cry.

On Sunday, the Indianapolis Colts played division rival Jacksonville Jaguars. T.Y. Hilton, a wide receiver for the Colts, had just a few hours before watched his baby girl's birth. He made it to the game and scored a touchdown, and saluted his new baby by tenderly cradling the football in the end zone.

I never knew how heartwarming a touchdown celebration could be, and the interview he gave after the game made me bawl, because by the end he himself was sobbing. He said he'd been up for hours and was hoping to score a touchdown for his little girl, and his wish came true.
