Actors Mira Sorvino and Christopher Backus are the proud parents of an aspiring gymnast! Their 4-year-old daughter Lucia Backus just kicked off her first set of gymnastic classes, which will only bring her one step closer to her idol: Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas.
The 48-year-old Tenafly native shared an adorable photo of her little girl showing off her patriotic spirit in an adorable red, white and blue gymnast outfit. The picture was taken right after her first practice when they made a stop at Baskin-Robbins to enjoy some ice cream.
According to the Mothers and Daughters star, Lucia is Gabby’s biggest fan and honestly, who could blame her. The 20-year-old Virginia native has shattered records and made Olympic history with her enviable moves on the floor and bars.
The happily married mother of four gave fans a glimpse of her little athlete’s love for the sport during a family trip to the beach, where she’s seen running after her brothers in a cute multi-color bodysuit.
Good luck Lucia, we’ll keep an eye out for you during the 2028 Olympic Games!
