Chance the Rapper won his first Grammys earlier this year for the mixtape Coloring Book, which made history by becoming the first streaming-only release to hit the Billboard 200. It was also the first album to win a Grammy without selling physical copies.

This week he finally received his awards—best new artist, best rap performance, and best rap album—and unboxed them with the help of 2-year-old daughter Kensli, who provided emotional and organizational support, mostly in the form of hugs.

It’s a sweet footnote on the rapper’s history-making run. In the second video, Chance gets emotional after unpacking the Grammys, and you will too.
