A principal dancer at The Royal Ballet has shown that the apple didn’t fall far from the tree – by posting adorable photos of her daughter in her first tutu.

English ballerina Lauren Cuthbertson, 37, shared photos of her daughter Peggy, who was born in December, learning the ballet ropes in adorable snaps posted to her 103,000 followers on Instagram.

This year, the prestigious dance company has locked in a baby boom, fueled by months of canceled performances due to the global pandemic.

Cuthbertson stepped back on stage at London’s Royal Opera House on Friday for the first time since giving birth – and baby Peggy joined him for the ride.

The snaps show baby Peggy, nine months, sitting in a dressing room chair as her mother, 37, prepares to take the stage. In another, she’s wearing a pink tutu at the star’s house.

In her Instagram stories, the ballerina also shared photos of her daughter crawling to the tune of Giselle’s music.

And alongside another recent photo, Cuthbertson discussed getting back on stage, writing: The end of a challenging but fulfilling week as I begin to feel free again in the studio…and with Peggy in my heart for every step.’

In an interview with Woman’s Hour earlier this year, Cuthbertson said there have been “a lot of babies” since the lockdown began in March 2020, after dancers were able to take a break from the often demanding training and performance schedules at London’s Royal Opera House.

The dancer joked that Peggy's crawling was similar to her approach to getting back on stage
