As Northwestern University won their first NCAA tournament game on Thursday, Julia Louis-Dreyfus was there in the stands cheering on her son, Charlie Hall, a sophomore forward on the title-contending team.
The Veep star looked adorably overcome with emotion when time expired, and the Wildcats defeated Vanderbilt in a 68-66 nailbiter.

We literally cannot get over the look of joy in the 56-year-old actress' eyes. That is the face of every mother watching their child succeed.
And anyone who follows the actress' Twitter feed knows how hard she's been repping that Wildcat pride.
Of course, her 19-year-old son's spot on the roster is not Louis-Drefus' only reason for turning out for the team.
The Emmy winner is herself a former Northwestern attendee, and the college was, prior to this season, the only original NCAA Division I school whose men's basketball team had literally never qualified for the tournament before -- all the more bonkers when you consider that the university hosted the first ever tournament in 1939!
So not only did Louis-Dreyfus witness her alma mater's history-making win, but her own son is a player on that history-making team!
Next up, the school moves on to face top-ranked Gonzaga in the second round on Saturday.
We truly can't wait to see Louis-Dreyfus back in the stands for that!
