San Jose Earthquakes' Chris Wondolowski celebrates goal by kissing his infant daughter (GIF) | SIDELINE

Because sometimes when you're a first-time dad, you just gotta appreciate the gift you've been given and kiss your baby girl, right?

US national team and San Jose Earthquakes forward Chris Wondolowski, who welcomed his first child into the world just two days before Christmas last year, felt the need to do just that on Wednesday night.

Following Wondolowski's goal that put the Earthquakes up 3-0 against the Chicago Fire, baby Emersyn made her goal celebration debut at Buck Shaw Stadium when her pops made a beeline run toward her on the sidelines and gave his little girl a kiss. Check out the GIF below.
