Bec and Lleyton Hewitt’s little girl has stars in her eyes.
Her mother made her foray into the world of showbusiness at the tender age of five, when she starred in her first TV commercial. And now Mia Hewitt is already showing signs of being quite the little performer – just like her former Home and Away star mum, Bec.
The gorgeous seven-year-old, along with her siblings Cruz, who turns 4 on December 11, and Ava, 2, are likely to have cameo roles in their tennis champion dad Lleyton’s latest TV commercial, for Swisse health bars. Producers of the ad, shot recently in Melbourne, will soon make the call on whether the youngest Hewitts will make their TV debut in the commercial.
It seems this would be a dream come true for Mia, with proud dad Lleyton admitting his eldest child has showbiz in her blood. “My daughter is already following in my wife’s footsteps,” Lleyton, 31, revealed during a recent appearance on TV’s The Project. “She’s the actress and the entertainer. She wants to be in all the drama programs already.”
Cruz, on the other hand, is “obsessed with sports and is Lleyton’s little shadow”, according to 29-year-old Bec. Either way, Lleyton – who was ranked world No.1 at just 20 – made it clear he’d never hold back any of his kids from achieving their dreams. “If they’ve got that passion for life, you can always go back and do school at different times,” he said on The Project.
