He shared that they had been at home when an intruder entered their home and took their granddaughter from her playpen, where she had been sleeping.

Montana and his wife, Jennifer Montana, confronted the woman, identified as Sodsai Dalzell, and tried to de-escalate the situation. Montana said about the situation:

"She came into the room and, you know, just total shock when somebody was standing there with the baby and I tried to grab the baby, she moved away from me."

His wife was able to snatch the child out from the intruder's arms, from the other side of the woman, opposite to where Montana was. She then proceeded to chase the woman down the beach.

The former football player shared that there had been police on the beach about 30 yards from where they had chased the woman, so she was arrested.

Although shaken up from the incident, Montana shared in the interview that the family was doing well and the baby is a happy and sociable child.

He shared the situation was terrifying and has made them feel a little more guarded. He said that they want her to be happy and sociable but:

"But you also want to teach her a little bit about, you know, letting people get close and we're a lot more guarded I should say."

On happier news, Montana is featured in the Guinness Super Bowl commercial this year, which had Montana explaining what exactly makes a GOAT.

GOAT is an acronym for greatest of all time. During his time as a quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, Montana was referred to as a GOAT as a 4-time champion.

Montana has been enjoying the beverage for over a decade, since he fell in love with it when he visited Dublin, Ireland. The beer is also the official beer of his alum mater, the University of Notre dame.

The commercial actually features clips from his time on the University team, including a clip of him losing the ball. The Super Bowl is happening on February 8, 2021.
