Annnnnd action! Mario Lopez has been nothing but supportive since his adorable 6-year-old daughter, Gia, started working on the popular Disney Junior show Elena of Avalor . . . but he has officially entered full "stage dad" mode. Lopez posted an adorable series of behind-the-scenes snaps featuring Gia in her element and totally embraced his new job as supporter and acting coach with the hashtag #StageDad.

Check out this sweet video of Gia reading her lines for the show; you can see the pride in Mario's eyes! We weren't sure it was possible for the proud dad to get more dimple-y, but the smile that Gia's perfect delivery put on his face proved us wrong. We think that she and her adoring stage dad have quite a future in Hollywood, don't you?
