On Thursday night, the 2022 NFL draft kicked off with Georgia's Travon Walker being the No. 1 overall pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

It took no time for the Detroit Lions to run to announce Michigan's Aidan Hutchinson as the No. 2 overall pick. Immediately after he was drafted, the cameras panned to see him celebrating with his family.

Hutchinson's mom quickly went viral after videos of the family were shown.

Fans think she was ready for the spotlight.

"Aidan Hutchinson's mom told her daughters to get behind her!" one fan said.

"I’ll tell you one thing. Aidan Hutchinson’s mom was READY to be on television," another fan said.

Others noticed that Hutchinson's mom looks relatively young.

"Genuinely cannot tell if the women hugging Aidan Hutchinson were his mom, girlfriend or sister(s)?!" one reporter said.

Before the draft kicked off, video showed Hutchinson hanging out with his family. His mom could be seen talking to him before the picks were announced.

Both Aidan and his mom are stars tonight - at least on social media.

Congratulations to the Hutchinson family!
