It’s not often that you make national history on the world’s greatest stage, but actor Paul Rudd recognizes it when you do.

Kansas City Chiefs offensive tackle Laurent Duvernay-Tardif was able to become just the ninth Canadian-born player to win a Super Bowl on Sunday.

In the middle of the on-field chaos after the Lombardi Trophy was handed over, Rudd and his son, Jack, were hugging and congratulating both Duvernay-Tardif and Chiefs star Travis Kelce.

To make it even better, his son is wearing a “Duvernay-Tardif MD” jersey, referring to the Canadian’s Doctor of Medicine he earned at Montreal’s McGill University in 2018.

The 28-year-old that can run block and diagnose a disease is now a Super Bowl champion and has a famous actor’s son wearing his own custom jersey. A weird — but amazing — sequence of events.

Kansas City defeated the San Francisco 49ers by a 31-20 score.
