Even celebrities can't help having those proud hockey parent moments.

Model Rachel Hunter and singer Rod Stewart proved that Monday when they beamed about Liam Stewart's first international goal at the IIHF World Championship Division I Group B tournament in Belfast.

Hunter was at Great Britain's 5-1 win against Estonia that pushed the Brits to 2-0 in the tournament, and even captured a video of Liam's goal.

Rod Stewart wasn't at the game, but was no less proud.

Stewart's goal was big news in England, but it may have taken a while to reach his famous dad back in the United States.

"I doubt he even knows we won yet," Liam told the BBC after the win. "Once I tell him, I'm sure he'll be proud."

The younger Stewart is no slouch at hockey either. He played four seasons of junior hockey for Spokane Chiefs of the Western Hockey League and scored nine goals in 49 games this season while playing for Coventry of the Elite Ice Hockey League in the United Kingdom.
