Ethan Hawke is one proud papa!

Just days after the third season of Stranger Things began streaming on Netflix, the actor shared a sweet post praising his daughter Maya, 20, for her role in the series.

“Some of you may have missed her in last year’s BBC production of Little Women. Some of you may have missed her work at Juilliard.

The sweet post quickly caught the eyes of several of the actor’s celebrity followers — including one of Maya’s new costars.
