Katherine Webb-McCarron got to enjoy something special with her three sons.

On Sunday, the family headed to Paycor Stadium to watch the Cincinnati Bengals face off against the Indianapolis Colts. What they didn't know at the time was that AJ McCarron would take the field in his first NFL appearance since a knee injury in 2021.

Webb-McCarron, 34, smiled in the stands with sons Gunnar Cruz, 2½, Cash Carter, 4, and Raymond Anthony McCarron III, aka Tripp, 6. They were greeted by McCarron, who gave his sons a high five as he warmed up for the game.

When Bengals quarterback Jake Browning was injured in the fourth quarter, McCarron, the 33-year-old backup quarterback took the field, marking the first time his younger two sons had ever seen him take the field in the NFL.

The former Miss Alabama USA and the football player tied the knot in 2014 after they began dating in 2012.

McCarron played for five teams as a career backup before leaving the NFL in 2022, when he was drafted to join the St. Louis Battlehawks of the XFL, a minor league coalition.

In June, McCarron talked to reporters about what it means to him to be able to play in front of his boys after a big win, shared by the team on their Instagram.

"It's awesome," he began, tearing up as his little boys ran over to him. "It means a lot."

"AJ McCarron has held a lot of titles, but 'Dad' is the most important one of all," the caption read.
