Michael was one of thousands of New York University graduates who finally got the big ceremony they've been waiting for at NYU's signature graduation spot, the iconic Yankee Stadium.

The family of five looked dapper and happy as ever as they looked down towards Michael while he found his spot for the ceremony, who looked smart in a blue button down shirt and a classic pair of sunglasses.

Both parents shared a sweet clip of their son clad in his purple toga as he used his mortarboard hat to wave at his family.

Though clearly happy to be there, Michael was keen on taking off the traditional hat, joking on his Instagram Stories as he made his way towards the stadium: "My head was not built for these stupid hats."
