There's a happy ending in Cleveland after NFL wide receiver Andrew Hawkins let his 2-year-old son back in the house.

Apparently Austin had a change of heart and realized "daddy" was his favorite player after all.

Hawkins, who plays for the Cleveland Browns, created a viral video clip on Instagram a few weeks ago when he playfully kicked Austin out of the house for saying his favorite players were former teammates of Hawkins' on the Cincinnati Bengals.

In the newest video, Austin appears at the door and again is asked who his favorite player is. This time he answers correctly and is let back in the house, pulling his suitcase behind him.

Thought so! Lol

Here is the earlier story:

After becoming a restricted free agent last offseason, NFL wide receiver Andrew Hawkins signed with the Cleveland Browns after his previous team, the Cincinnati Bengals, opted not to match the Browns' offer.

It looked as though Hawkins wanted to go to Cleveland more than stay in Cincinnati, and this story won't dispel that notion.

Hawkins' two-year-old son Austin told his father that Bengals receivers Mohamed Sanu and A.J. Green were his favorite NFL players, and Andrew was less than pleased (you hear in the video Austin say  "A.J."and "Sanu").

Hawkins later posted the results on Instagram:

It's safe to say this was all a joke, or Hawkins is trying to unseat Ben Roethlisberger as the AFC North's biggest jerk. Hawkins has yet to catch a touchdown this year, despite being the Browns' No. 1 receiver for the entire season to this point.

It's not the first time Hawkins has used his son to humorous effect on social media. Months ago he posted this Vine of dunking on his son.

And to show he's not all about torturing his son on social media, here's a photo Hawkins posted to his Facebook page:
