Say, why is Brian Williams spending so much time talking about a random casting decision on NBC Nightly News? Doesn’t he know there are more important things going on?

Sorry, we’re just being glib. This is a very cute video of Brian Williams covering the news that his daughter, Girls‘ Allison Williams, landed the lead role in the upcoming NBC special Peter Pan Live!

Even when he’s being a proud papa, the rapping anchor keeps it professional, covering his daughter’s news with a straight face – even when quoting unnamed “family members” who “look forward to seeing her fly.”

Watch the clip above.
