An NFL linebacker was caught on mic trying to find his mama in the stands. Awwww

No matter how big, burly, and badass you become, sometimes you just want to see your mama's face.

A video of Miami Dolphins player Jerome Baker Jr. looking for his mom in the stands has gone viral because it's just so dang wholesome. The 22-year-old linebacker was mic'd during the game, and as he sat with his teammates on the bench, he kept scanning the crowd, asking aloud where his mama was. According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Baker had sent his mom, Theodora, a ticket to the game, but he wasn't sure if she was going to make it.

The video alternates between Baker pumping up his teammates on the field, making tackles, and hanging with his teammates on the sidelines and asking,"Bro, where is my mama?" Just after a play, he was caught on the field looking up to the stands, asking himself, "Where is she AT?" At one point, Baker was singing along to the Miami Dolphins fight song, only to interject another "Where is my mama?" in the middle of it.

The contrast between Baker's game-on intensity and his innocent searching between plays creates a touching montage that could melt any mom's heart.

Baker himself found the video hilarious, and said he was "dying laughing" when he saw it making the rounds on Twitter.

"It was just funny. You don't realize how many times I was saying it, but I was saying it so much. The video made it funnier," he said in a video with the Sun-Sentinel.

"If you look at the video, I was clean at one point. Then later on, I had a little bit of dirt on me. Then later on, I was full of dirt. It was like the whole game, I was saying, 'Where's my mom? Where's my mom?'," he said. "It was just a funny moment I didn't realize, but I was definitely looking for my mom a lot."

Even people who aren't fans of football can appreciate the sweetness of a tough young man wanting to see his mama. Whoever you are, wherever you live, whatever you do, there's just something comforting in knowing mom is cheering you on.

Hollywood is finally moving closer to equality. The past few years have seen a growing number of films starring, written by and directed by women. There's still a lot of progress yet to be made, of course. But there's one area where women have been kicking butt and taking names for decades: action films. Ironically, action films are stereotyped as the launching pad of the manliest of manly men: Schwarzenegger, The Rock, Clint Eastwood, Sylvester Stallone and so on. But some of the biggest action hits, both critically and commercially, are led by women.

If you're looking to expand your home video library for the holidays or just searching for a great holiday playlist while taking out some healthy aggression, here are 12 of our all-time favorite films featuring strong women front and center.

One in five pregnancies end in miscarriage. It's a sad and heartbreaking experience, but there still is a lot to learn from going through something so tragic. Beyoncé recently shared what she learned from her miscarriages in an "ask me anything" published in the January 2020 issue of Elle Magazine.

A fan asked Beyoncé if she was disappointed she didn't win awards for Lemonade and Homecoming. Beyoncé said her miscarriages helped put it in perspective. "I began to search for deeper meaning when life began to teach me lessons I didn't know I needed. Success looks different to me now. I learned that all pain and loss is in fact a gift," she said in Elle Magazine.

Even though 68% of women in America where size 14 or above, plus sized women tend to draw more heat for the outfits that they wear, especially if those outfits are even remotely racy. Earlier this week, Lizzo was spotted at a LA Lakers game wearing the dress heard round the internet. Dubbed the "thong dress," Lizzo's t-shirt dress was straightforward in the front, but the back featured cutouts featuring her thong and fishnet stockings.

During the game, Lizzo twerked when the Laker Girls danced to her song "Juice," giving the crowd a full view of her ensemble.

The Miss America pageant was started in 1921, but women of color were barred from participating until 1940. It took another 30 years for the first black woman to participate in the pageant in 1970. In 1983, Vanessa Williams became the first black woman to win Miss America. Now, the winners of all four major beauty pageants are all black women.

Zozibini Tunzi of South Africa was crowned Miss Universe, making this the first time in history that Miss America, Miss USA, Miss Teen USA, and Miss Universe are all black women. Tunzi is the first black woman to win Miss Universe since 2011, when Leila Lopes took home the crown.
