It’s normal for parents to get nervous before their son or daughter performs in front of a large group of people, whether it's for a baseball game or a dance recital.
But most parents don’t have to worry about their daughter tripping in front of millions of people! For Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, that’s their main concern as daughter Sosie takes on the role of Miss Golden Globe.
The 21-year-old will be assisting presenters in handing out the awards during tonight's live broadcast.
“I have been very nervous,” Kyra admits of seeing her daughter up on stage. “I was less nervous today when I was at rehearsal. I was really glad to get the muscle memory going. I just don’t want to screw up introducing her.
The proud mom hints, “We have got a little thing that we are doing.”
But dad Kevin shares that his daughter is actually pretty calm about the whole thing. “She seems to be so relaxed it’s kind of tough for us to get nervous about it.”
“Right exactly,” Kyra adds, “I keep waiting like ‘aren’t you going to freak out and melt down at some point?’ She just seems okay.”
When asked what advice she gave her daughter about preparing for the show, the Golden Globe winner, and 7-time nominee, simply said:
“The first thing I said to her was you have to learn to walk in some heels because she’s a very flats girl. You know, it took me years to really get to know to do that.”
But Kyra isn’t convinced that Sosie has mastered it. “She says she’s done it, but I don’t think she’s done enough rehearsing with the heels myself, but I’m quiet at this point.”
One of the many tricks of parenting she's learned over the years! “It’s just the gift that keeps on giving,” says Kevin of being a dad. “It changes and morphs and gets better all the time.”
And while both parents are excited for their daughter’s role in tonight's show, they admit that they’re grateful to not be nominated this year.
“We’re not nominated, so it’s easy,” says Kevin.
“Yes, less pressure,” adds Kyra.
