How celeb kids show support for their famous parents, from Carrie Underwood to Kate Upton
No matter if you're a celebrity, a star athlete or an everyday parent, we all could use a little support from the people we love every now and then. And who better shows that than the kids who love their parents through thick and thin?
Though these celebs have plenty of fans, there's no doubt who their number one cheerleaders are. Sometimes even more entertaining than their superstar parents are the children who always offer them their unwavering support.
From adorable dances in football jerseys to getting the national anthem feels, here's a roundup of just some of the many adorable ways famous kids have cheered on their star parents.
Justin Verlander's daughter cheers him on with Kate Upton
In an adorable Instagram post Thursday, swimsuit model Kate Upton showed her daughter Genevieve cheering on her baseball star dad (and Upton's husband) Justin Verlander.
As Verlander's team, the Houston Astros, faced off against the New York Yankees, Genevieve repped her dad's last name and jersey number on her denim jacket.
"Go Daddy!" Upton wrote in the caption. "We are ready for #Game 4 !!!"
Little Genevieve, who turns one next month, must be her dad's good luck charm, because the Astros ended up going home that night with a win.

Carrie Underwood's son finally sees mom sing
Carrie Underwood singing the national anthem before a National Hockey League playoff game is a good luck charm for her husband's Nashville Predators, but one time last year, it was more meaningful for her son.
The singer posted an Instagram video last April of her now-five-year-old son Isaiah reacting to her singing the anthem at Bridgestone Arena.
According to Underwood, the little one "never really" gets to see his mommy sing.
"As a child, I wanted nothing more than to make my parents proud of me...and now, as a mother, I want to make my child proud," the "American Idol" winner wrote. "He never really gets to see me sing because he's in bed before I go on stage, but last night he was there to watch his daddy play...and he also got see his mommy sing for a minute."
In January, Underwood and her hockey star hubby Mike Fisher welcomed their second child, a boy named Jacob.

"Let's go papai !!!" Brady's wife wrote in the caption. "Let's go pats !!!"
