Family comes first for Carl Frampton, no question.

This evening The Jackal was taking part in a live video Q&A session on the Premier Boxing Champions Facebook page as he looks to build up his following Stateside for his WBA featherweight title clash with Leo Santa Cruz on Saturday.

Less than two minutes in however Frampton brought an abrupt halt to the live video as he was reunited with his young daughter Carla – whom he hadn’t seen in over three weeks.

5 year old Carla charged over to her dad, who apologised to fans saying “there’s my babies, I’m going to have to stop this now, sorry mate.”

Frampton’s wife Christine, and his two young children Carla and Rossa flew across the Atlantic today to support the Belfast man in his fight with Santa Cruz and enjoy a well-earned week’s holiday in the Big Apple after the fight
