The two rocked pink tutus and leggings along with printed white tops. Their gorgeous outfits were topped with long-sleeved denim jackets and pink hairbands.

Blair, who had her gaze on her sister, had a head full of brown locks. Her baby sister rocked really short hair and stared ahead, while Blair smiled.

Their dad, who was rocking a white shirt, held the sisters on his lap. Brittney posted the photo to celebrate father's day and appreciate Benson's impact on their lives. In the post caption, she wrote:

"Happy Father's Day to the man I love. Thank you for all the ways you go above and beyond every day for our family…"

Brittney lives with her husband and kids in Chicago. She is a news reporter and host who has worked on FOX_32 and WGN-TV.

Unlike her daughters, Brittney did not get to spend father's day with her dad, Walter Payton, who passed away in 1999. He died after a battle with bile duct cancer.

Walter was one of the greatest NFL players of all-time. He played as a running back for the Chicago Bears for over a decade. He got nine Pro Bowl selections during his football career.

Apart from his incredible skills as a player, he was also known for doing a lot of charitable work. He did most of his work through the Walter Payton Foundation, which is dedicated to helping children and veterans.

He was also survived by his wife Connie and son, Jarrett. The foundation was taken over by his wife, and the name was changed to "The Walter and Connie Payton Foundation."

Jarrett has followed in his father's footsteps. He played football just like his father, but he now has a career as an on-air personality on radio and television.

Jarrett is also a giver like his father, and he does his work through a foundation known as "The Jarrett Payton Foundation," which is dedicated to making a positive impact in the lives of children and adolescents.
