Watching your kids follow in your footsteps is something many parents think about, but few actually get to experience. Then again, most of us don’t have Kevin Bacon as a dad (as far as I know – I’m still not too clear on that “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” thing). Kevin Bacon’s daughter, Sosie, dove head-first into the entertainment world as an actress in her own right. In a recent Instagram post, the Footloose actor shared a behind-the-scenes look into an extremely sweet father-daughter moment.
The entertainment industry can take you anywhere in the world, but by some stroke of luck, both Kevin and Sosie Bacon are currently working on projects in New York. The hard-working dad and daughter are staying at their home in their NY home while completing their respective projects – and from the looks of it, there’s no place either of them would rather be.
Kevin Bacon shared a short video on Instagram, a peek inside the Bacons’ morning routine filmed by his 29-year-old daughter. The resemblance between Kevin and Sosie is uncanny, and their touching bond is undeniable.
“Rise and shine or shush and slurp #ASMR with @sosiebacon,” Kevin captioned the Instagram video. “Let’s get to work!”

Sosie begins the video with a quick tour of the family kitchen, whispering as she sets the scene.
“When you’re both working on productions in New York, Dad makes the coffee,” Sosie says, showing off her mug as she sits down next to her dad. “Just trying to get on his ASMR game because Kyra is sleeping.”
Kevin grins with his own cup of coffee in hand, laughing softly as to not wake his wife, Kyra Sedgwick. The sweet father-daughter moment is further highlighted by the kitchen itself, its walls decorated with family photos.
Though Kevin Bacon has spoken publicly about trying to dissuade his kids from choosing careers that would place them squarely in the public eye, both his son and daughter have found success in the world of entertainment. Like any parent would, Kevin Bacon supported his kids fully, knowing their happiness was the most important thing. Over the years he’s continued to show up for his kids without question, and of course, he made sure to bring the coffee.
