Zoe Benson and Madison Payton had hearts melting on their birthdays with adorable pictures shared on Instagram. The two girls are granddaughters of the late NFL star Walter Payton.

Walter Payton's granddaughters, Madison and Zoe, celebrated their birthdays this month, and fans could not stop swooning over how beautiful the two girls looked.

Madison is the daughter of Payton's son Jarrett and wife Trisha, while little Zoe was born to the footballer's only daughter, Brittney, and her husband, Jordan Benson.

On April 12, Madison turned five. To celebrate the milestone, Jarrett took to Instagram, sharing a series of family photos featuring him, Trisha, and his mom Cornie Norwood.

While the first slide featured a sweet photo of Jarret holding Madison, others captured the little one posing with her famous family. The images were accompanied by a caption reading:

"...I hope you know that it doesn't matter how old you get; you will always be daddy's little girl."


The comments section was soon filled with notes from followers who penned sweet birthday wishes for Madison. The little one was also called cute by several fans.

Last week, it was Brittney's turn to shower Zoe with love as the little one celebrated her 2nd birthday. The doting mom spared no words for her beautiful daughter.

In addition to their respective careers, the siblings are also actively involved in charity works.


Taking to Instagram, Brittney shared a heartwarming slideshow featuring several photos of Zoe posing alone. The clip was simply too cute for words!

Brittney shared the slideshow alongside a caption describing Zoe as a beautiful baby girl who lights up the lives of people around. The proud mom continued:

"You always have a smile on your face and are always making us laugh! I love you with all my heart baby girl!!"


Expectedly, the sweet tribute garnered attention from several fans and followers who left lovely birthday wishes for the toddler in the comments section.

With a talented NFL player like Payton as their dad, it comes as no surprise that both Brittney and Jarrett chose sports-related careers. The apple really does not fall far from the tree.


While Brittney works as a television host, contributing to the NFL Network, Jarrett is a former NFL player like his late dad. However, after leaving the league, he took up a career in sportscasting.

In addition to their respective careers, the siblings are also actively involved in charity works, including their family's foundation, The Walter and Connie Payton Foundation, and The Jarrett Payton Foundation.
