Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr.’s 7-year-old daughter Charlotte is following in the footsteps of her actor parents. Not only has she joined a local musical theatre program for kids, but she also landed the starring role!

Charlotte will be playing Simba in the theatre’s production of The Lion King! Simba is a huge role to take on for such a young kid, but since performing runs in her blood, we’re certain she will nail it.

To share her pride, Gellar posted the sweetest message about her daughter’s big role alongside an adorable picture of her studying her lines:

(We are gushing at the fact that she used her dad’s script binder!)

It’s always a relief for parents when their kids find a hobby they love, but when that hobby also happens to involve the profession of the parents, it’s probably that much more of a beautiful thing.

Break a leg, Charlotte! You’re going to be a mighty king!
