Like father, like daughter! Jean Claude Van Damme’s daughter, Bianca, loves sharing her love of fitness on social media, and it looks like she’s following right in her famous dad’s footsteps with some insane martial arts moves. See the photos here!
Bianca Bree, 25, wants to be known as more than just Jean Claude Van Damme’s daughter, but it definitely doesn’t hurt that she’s inherited some of his skills! The actor is known for performing his own martial arts stunts in well-known films, and Bianca is showing off her own love of the sport on social media. Check out the pics!
Being the daughter of a martial artist and former bodybuilder — Bianca’s mom is Gladys Portugues — has had a positive influence on the 25-year-old, who has shared her love of both her parents’ professions on social media.
Taking a page from Jean’s book, Bianca shared a photo of herself leaping up in the air with her legs in a split to kick her trainer’s hand, held up high off the ground. Can we talk about that high jump!? It’s insane! In another shot, the actress lifts her leg high up in the air in an out-of-control stretch to flaunt her flexibility.
But she also likes keeping her figure toned and muscular. In a mirror selfie from the gym, Bianca poses next to some heavy weights while wearing nothing but a sports bra and super short, spandex workout shorts. Helloooooo, six pack!
Jean began taking karate classes when he was just 10 years old, and quickly earned a spot on the Belgian Karate team, beginning his competitive career when he was just 15. He moved to the United States in 1982 to begin a career in action movies and has starred in films like Street Fighter, Bloodsport and Kickboxer.
Meanwhile, Bianca is an actress in her own right, making her film debut in Jean’s 2008 film The Shepherd: Border Patrol, playing his on-screen daughter. She’s admitted to not wanting to be a “shadow” of her famous dad, but clearly, there’s some things she’s glad to have inherited from him!
Do you think Bianca is following in her dad’s footsteps, HollywoodLifers? What do you think of her moves?
