Nick Sirianni’s daughter becomes the unexpected star at Eagles’ press event
In the world of professional football, not even an undefeated streak can outshine the charm of a 5-year-old’s shenanigans — just ask Philadelphia Eagles coach Nick Sirianni’s daughter, Taylor.
During a recent press conference, following a nail-biting 28-23 victory over the Dallas Cowboys, Coach Sirianni shared the stage with young Taylor, who promptly hijacked the spotlight. The Eagles may have clinched the game, but it was Taylor’s playful antics that captured the audience’s hearts.
The team’s Instagram account shared a snippet where Taylor, perhaps unimpressed by the football stats, drew laughs by dramatically widening her eyes behind her dad’s back. Sirianni, catching on, couldn’t help but address her, “You making faces, baby?” To which, Taylor, quick as a flash, denied with a headshake, maintaining her poker face.
The video shows Taylor mimicking her dad’s hand gestures with cheeky precision, tracing the Eagles emblem on his shirt, and even turning her chair into her personal playground, complete with facial acrobatics for the press to enjoy.
At one juncture, as she giggled behind her hands, Sirianni, in true dad form, asked if she was tired, receiving a secretive whisper in return.
The NFL’s own highlight reel includes a tender father-daughter exchange where Sirianni inquires about her plans during a school break. Taylor, barely audible, leans in for a whisper, prompting her dad to divulge her wish for a Chick-fil-A treat — a reveal that had Taylor immediately protesting in adorable indignation.

These press room visits are becoming a delightful tradition for the Siriannis. Last season’s buildup to the Super Bowl saw Taylor and her siblings, Miles and Jacob, accompany their father, making for a lively and heartwarming scene. Despite their restlessness, it was Taylor’s playful mimicry and comedic timing that stole the show, leading her father to gently reprimand the trio.
In the end, while the Eagles’ tactical plays and wins keep fans on the edge of their seats, it’s Taylor’s irrepressible spirit that leaves an indelible mark on the hearts of all who witness her impromptu performances.
