When Hutchinson was selected second overall by the Lions in the 2022 NFL Draft on Thursday, the Michigan rusher was adopted by loved ones, including mom Melissa and sisters Mia and Aria.
In videos on social media, the united family – whom NFL fans have already fallen in love with – surrounded Hutchinson as he took a phone call from the Lions.

Hutchinson’s sister Aria, who studies neuroscience at the University of Michigan, reposted a clip of the family originally shared by the school football team.
