The Associated Press

MUNICH (AP) Tensions between the United States and Russia are running high over Ukraine but that didn't stop U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry from sharing some personal news with Russia's foreign minister.

Kerry's a grandfather again.

Kerry and Sergey Lavrov (SEHR'-gay LAHV'-rahf) were meeting in Munich on Saturday, and Kerry mentioned that his daughter Vanessa just had her second child a girl.

Lavrov offered congratulations and gave a dig to the former Massachusetts senator about the New England Patriots' Super Bowl victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

Here's what Lavrov said: "John, we always are happy when patriots beat hawks."

Kerry paused and then replied, "I hadn't thought of it that way. I'm sure you do."
