Isabella Strahan hit the runway for the first time over the weekend, and her dad Michael Strahan celebrated the exciting occasion with an Instagram video on Monday April 11. The 50-year-old former NFL player posted a montage of the 17-year-old model set to the tune of “Live Your Life” by T.I. and Rihanna. He didn’t shy away from the fact that seeing his daughter chase her modeling dreams made him so proud.

The video showed Isabella getting her makeup done and then a few videos of her walking the runway and showing off two gowns, one black and one white. In one of the clips, after she walked offstage, the camera panned over to Michael and showed him with a huge smile on his face, clearly happy to see his daughter doing so well. “Very proud of you, @isabellastrahan, for crushing your first runway this weekend for @sherrihill!!!! As a parent, there is nothing like watching your child succeed at what they love with a smile on their face,” he wrote in the caption along with the hashtags “Proud Dad” and “Girl Dad.”

Isabella looked so grown up, as she walked the runway. She is one of two kids that Michael has with his ex-wife Jean Muggli. Isabella has a twin sister Sophia. Other than the twin girls, Michael also has a son Michael Jr., 25, and daughter Tanita, 30, with his first wife Wanda Hutchins.

Other than his daughter rocking the runway, it’s been a pretty monumental year for Michael. The former NFL player got to be included in one of Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin space flights in December. The monumental touchdown came after he announced that he’d be taking flight in November 2021. “I wanted to go to space. I think being there at the first launch, it really was mindblowing,” he said of the opportunity at the time. It seems like since the space flight, Michael has kept in touch with the Amazon founder. In fact, Jeff’s girlfriend Lauren Sanchez commented on the video of Isabella walking the runway with a clapping hand and heart emoji.
