The apple doesn't fall far from the rink!
The offspring of famed ice skater, Nancy Kerrigan, are trying out the family trade!
The two-time Olympic medalist and mother of three, admits to getting her youngest, daughter Nicole, out on the ice when she was just 14-months-old.
Now that Nicole is three, she wears tiny hand-me-down skates from when her brothers, Matthew (16) and Brian (6½), were tiny skaters!
Kerrigan says her mini-mes have inherited some of her natural talent, but there's just one problem: they think they're above taking any tips from their world famous mom! She said:
“They all like going skating and they definitely like people clapping for them. They say, ‘Watch me’ and I try to give them tips, but they don’t necessarily listen to me.”
Well, we hope they start listening soon!
We'd love to see Kerrigan's kids at the 2030 winter Olympics!
