Ethan Hawke Proudly Cheers on Daughter Maya, Praising Her "Gorgeous New Songs"

Stranger Things star Maya Hawke has branched into the music scene with two new songs, and her father Ethan Hawke is proud! On Friday, Maya debuted her singles, "To Love a Boy" and "Stay Open," which will be featured on her upcoming album. Shortly after the double release, Ethan — who shares Maya with ex-wife Uma Thurman — took to Instagram to share his excitement over his daughter's new venture. "These two gorgeous new songs released yesterday by @maya_hawke," he captioned a clip of Maya's dreamy tune. "Check them out on Spotify and iTunes. Album to follow."

This isn't the first time Ethan has sang Maya's praises. In July, the Training Day actor posted a heartfelt tribute to her amid the widespread popularity of her Stranger Things character, Robin. "Some of you may have missed her in last year's BBC production of Little Women. Some of you may have missed her work at Juilliard," he wrote. "I know many missed out on numerous high school productions — heck I even missed a few and I'm her father. Some of you may know her music, some may not. But Ladies & Gentleman, get to know MAYA HAWKE. She's the real thing." Aw!

Ahead, read Ethan's recent salute to Maya, then listen to the new tracks!
