NBC News anchor Brian Williams reported on his actress daughter Allison Williams's new role as Peter Pan like any proud dad would - by using embarrassing childhood pictures.

Veteran anchor Williams played things straight at first, simply saying: "The actress and singer is currently in the cast of Girls on HBO."

Then an image of his daughter dressed as Peter Pan flashed on screen, and Williams, with barely a flicker of a smile, added: "Family members confirmed she has been rehearsing for this role since the age of three, and they look forward to seeing her fly."
