KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Everybody is getting on board for the best Kansas City Chiefs season in years, and that includes babies.

CBS Sports' Will Brinson posted a photo of a baby dressed as head coach Andy Reid.  Brinson said the photo was sent to him by someone he works with.

The Olathe baby is the son of Chiefs fans B.J. and Jodi Leeper.

"It was my husband's idea to dress him up as Andy Reid for our neighborhood Halloween party. I just wish we could get a photo with him and Coach Reid together. That would be hilarious," Jodi Leeper told Brinson.

Raymond Leeper, B.J.'s paternal grandmother, told KCTV5 that the family has been overwhelmed with telephone calls and emails from media outlets from across the country including Sports Illustrated.

He calls all of the hullabaloo, "hilarious."

The photo comes just a week after the normally stoic coach went viral with a video of his jovial entrance into the team locker room.

"It just proves that everyone looks better in a walrus mustache. The only way it's better is if the parents put the kid in a Hawaiian shirt like the Chiefs coach wears," Brinson posted.

Whatever he is wearing, Reid has his team at the top of the NFL halfway through the regular season.

The Chiefs head to Buffalo on Sunday for their last game before their bye week.

KCTV5's DeAnn Smith and Betsy Webster contributed to this report.
