World famous actress Salma Hayek has earned critical and commercial success for her roles in Frida, 30 Rock, and Ugly Betty.

But one role has earned her all the ultimate award: her daughter’s approval. 

Hayek’s daughter, Valentina, is overjoyed to see her mother appear in Muppets Most Wanted. 

“I have a very little cameo,” the Mexican actress told reporters at the BAFTA Awards, “But I’m very excited, because I’m [Valentina’s] hero now.”

Although her exact role is still unknown, Hayek will be appearing alongside Miss Piggy, Kermit the Frog, Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, Tom Hiddleston, Usher, and others. 

The movie hits theaters March 21, 2014.
