So it's no surprise the Hall of Fame quarterback was willing to do the same for his family.

In a very scary story which thankfully had a happy ending, National Football League legend Joe Montana and his wife, Jennifer, stopped a home intruder Saturday evening after that intruder had briefly taken hold of one of the Montanas' grandchildren.

Now 64 years old, Montana is out here acting the part of a hero off the field.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that a 39-year-old woman entered Joe and Jennifer Montana's Los Angeles-area home through an unlocked door at around 5 p.m. on Saturday.

At that point, the suspect allegedly saw a woman holding a baby, grabbed the child and walked to a different part of the house.
