“I’m so proud”: Olivia Newton-John holds back tears watching daughter Chloe Lattanzi

“I’m so proud”: Olivia Newton-John holds back tears watching daughter Chloe Lattanzi

Olivia Newton-John was nearly brought to tears as her daughter Chloe Lattanzi made her debut on Dancing With The Stars.

In the premiere of the competition’s second season, Newton-John was on the front row of the audience to watch Lattanzi’s performance of Foxtrot with dance partner Gustavo Viglio.

When presenter Amanda Keller asked the Grease star what she thought of her daughter’s dance, she said, “I am so proud, I’m so proud and my heart is beating so fast and I’m trying not to cry.

“You were so beautiful darling. You did such a wonderful job. It was just gorgeous.”

Lattanzi said she joined the reality show to overcome her fear of performing that she suffered after finishing third place on the MTV series Rock the Cradle.

“I wanted to be voted off every week because I was so terrified,” she said. ”I feel like it really traumatised me but I miss creativity, I miss music... here I am, I faced my fear and I couldn’t be happier!”

Lattanzi danced alongside fellow contestants Claudia Karvan, Ed Kavalee, Celia Pacquola, Dean Wells, Travis Cloke, Dami Im, Angie Kent, Beau Ryan and Christian Wilkins for judges Sharna Burgess, Tristan MacManus and Craig Revel Horwood.
