So flippin’ cute! This adorable 3-year-old gymnastics prodigy named Emma appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, March 24, and has officially stolen our hearts.
The teeny tiny little girl is from Texas and started competing when she was only 2 1/2.
According to her mom, Emma started practicing gymnastics because she was “clumsy.”
When asked by Ellen DeGeneres if she’s ever afraid to fall, the purple leotard–wearing tot said: “No, because then we just get back up.”
“I’m still in shock how quick she learned these!” her mom wrote alongside an Instagram video of her little girl performing a backhand spring earlier this week. “Her form is a work in progress but she’s working hard on getting there and I couldn’t be prouder.”
During their interview, Emma’s mom explained that her husband, Emma’s dad, is in the army and that he left Emma a “daddy kiss jar” full of Hershey’s Kisses — one for each day he’s away.
Watch the adorable video above.
