Chelsea hero Kai Havertz welcomed girlfriend Sophia Weber onto the Estadio do Dragao pitch on Saturday evening to hold aloft the Champions League trophy.
The German international forward put a difficult debut season in England behind him by rounding Ederson and scoring the only goal of the game in Portugal.
The 21-year-old's ninth goal for the Blues proved to be the most important strike of his career so far, and he was hailed by team-mates and pundits for his composure during the biggest chance of the fixture.
After the celebrations had calmed, Havertz welcomed girlfriend Sophia to the pitch and shared an emotional embrace while holding the trophy, and it was captured by photographers.
Kai doesn't regular share photos of himself and Sophia on Instagram as he focuses on his career, but did wish her a happy birthday in May of 2019.
Speaking to BT Sport after the game, Havertz said when asked if his price tag handed him added pressure: “To be honest right now I do not give a f*** we won the f****** Champions League!
“It is an incredible feeling. We deserved it.
"I worked 15 years for that moment and now it is time to celebrate.”

Captain Cesar Azpilicueta then added of his colleague: "He deserves that, his mentality is top, this guy.
"He’s going to be a superstar, he is already. Not only that, he ran like crazy, that’s the team work, that’s why he deserves this.
"I came here in 2012 after the Champions League win, I wanted to repeat that.
"Tonight is amazing, my family are here, it’s a special, special day."
Thomas Tuchel said of his players after the match: "Obviously we have a strong bond, group who can really defend which is a huge part of football and have answers on all questions in the game.
"The level is set from us, once celebrations are over we have digested this experience, it is the moment to evolve and to use it."
Adding: "When I won the cup in Dortmund I did not arrive in the first training with less hunger or ambition.
"Of course, now is the time to celebrate for some days to enjoy and to let it sink in, absolutely. Of course, this is the time now to think about and reflect."
