The medical center posted on Facebook a photo showing 18 newborn babies “cheering on” the team as they were wearing hand-made blankets with the Patriots’ design, as well as pom-pom hats.

In the post, UMass Memorial thanked the nurses who made the blankets and the pom-pom hats. Apart from that, they pointed out that the babies were “the most adorable good luck charms” they had ever seen.

THE WINNERS OF THE SUPER BOWL LIII

NE Patriots won the Super Bowl LIII against the Los Angeles Rams in the lowest-scoring Super Bowl game in history. Both team’s defense was so tough to beat that there was no touchdown until the fourth quarter. The score was 13-3.

MORE BABIES GOING VIRAL

The “lucky-charm” babies are not the only children who melted people hearts, though. Four babies at the Learning Lodge Daycare in Nolanville, Texas, became internet sensations after a video of them entertaining each other went viral in 2018.

In the clip shared to the daycare Facebook page, the four children were sitting in a table probably waiting for their meals. The two in the middle, a boy and a girl, couldn’t stop moving their heads and bodies while laughing. The second girl was not moving that much when the clip started but was quite thrilled by her friends’ moves. 

Soon later, she copied them and joined the fun. Finally, the second boy was a lot more cautious with his head movements, and even though he was not as excited as the rest of his friends, he was clearly having a good time, too.
