David Warner the cricketer has been at his brilliant best throughout the first two Tests of the Ashes series.
But after Australia won the second Test in Adelaide to take a 2-0 lead, it was time for David Warner the family man to step up.
Moments after Australia secured victory by 275 runs at Adelaide Oval, Warner was spotted celebrating with his three daughters on the field.
Ivy Mae, Indy Rae and Isla Rose all sprinted across the outfield to greet their victorious dad, sharing a beautiful embrace on the field.
"Minutes after the Test finished, Warner began heading towards his family in the stands & his kids were on him before he could even get into position for the group hug," tweeted cricket writer Bharat Sundaresan.
"Cuteness overload at the Adelaide Oval."
Warner then walked around the pitch chatting to his doting daughters as they all soaked up the victory.
Indy Rae even pretended to bowl a few balls on the fifth day wicket.
Photos of the cute scenes were shared and retweeted hundreds of times on social media on Monday night and Tuesday.

David Warner keen for more time with family
Warner didn't get to see his family for months earlier this year while playing in the Indian Premier League.
He was then forced to quarantine for two weeks when returning home after a Covid-19 outbreak struck the tournament.
Last year he admitted he was considering scaling back the amount of time he spends on overseas cricket tours in order to spend more time with his family.
“It’s going to be very difficult to be able to (go on all tours),” Warner, now aged 35, said.
“The past six months has been quite challenging in itself getting used to these bubbles and not having the family with me.
“There are going to be times when you can come home and have time with your family. But you have that 14 days in place you have to do beforehand.
“It’s going to be very difficult and it’s something we have to speak to coaches and selectors.
“Each individual will have to put their hand up and be brave and do that.”
The veteran claimed last summer that he could retire from either red or white-ball cricket by mid-2021 to prolong his career.
That was before Australia hosting the T20 World Cup was pushed back from 2020 to 2022 due to the pandemic.
But with the next ODI World Cup not scheduled until 2023, the opener indicated that would most likely be the format he could miss games in.
“That’s something we have identified as players and coaching staff,” he said.
“The preference will be the T20 stuff over the next two years. And then gearing up for the 50-over World Cup in India in 2023.”
