There’s no doubt Serena Williams inspires her daughter Olympia. She is the GOAT, after all! But a different Olympian recently caught the 6-year-old’s eye, and we don’t blame her at all!

Williams’ husband Alexis Ohanian revealed that Olympia tried to imitate a routine done by 4-time gold medalist Simone Biles. Gymnastics coach Mary K Myal shared a video of Biles showing off her new floor routine, which includes a triple double first pass, on Twitter. Ohanian retweeted it, commenting, “it’s so good to see her back.”

Apparently, he showed the impressive video to his daughter, which made her want to try it out herself. “Jr. sees this and starts tumbling over the sofa. Love to see it,” he added.

As someone who also used to tumble around my living room while watching the Olympics (and pretend to ice skate during the winter games!), this melts my heart. Sure, her mom has four Olympic gold medals herself in tennis, but there’s something about watching Biles in action that is so empowering. Especially because kids, in general, aren’t as amazed by their parents as everyone else is!

Others could relate, too. “My core memory of Olympics in the 90s is doing cartwheels and flips on the arm of the couch,” one person commented.

Now that Olympia is growing up, she is starting to realize just how big of a deal her mom is. In an April interview with PEOPLE, Williams dished, “Yeah, Olympia’s now at an age where she’s like, ‘Listen, I am wondering, why are you so famous?’ She was like, ‘You’re a great tennis player.’”
“And so I told her the other day that she actually was in my belly when I won a big tournament [the 2017 Australian Open] and she was surprised,” the Wyn Beauty founder continued. “She’s at an age now where I can kind of open up to her a little bit more.”

Olympia plays sports of her own, too. Her parents often share videos of their eldest daughter (they also share 9-month-old daughter Adira) in various sporting activities, like playing golf in her “golf girl era,” riding horses, and even playing tennis like her mom. Who knows? Maybe she’ll pick up gymnastics next. Whatever she chooses, she’ll probably be amazing — after all, it’s in her blood!
