Kate Ritchie says she’s a ‘proud mumma’ as daughter Mae, eight, performs at a festival – after revealing she won’t encourage her to try acting

Kate Ritchie proved she has just a little of the stage mother gene as she shared a photo of her daughter performing on Monday. 

The actress and radio presenter, 43, was busy snapping away as her eight-year-old daughter Mae posed on stage at a local festival. 

Mae was wearing a black leotard and appeared to have taken part in a dance performance.

Kate knelt before her daughter and her friend, taking photos of the beaming pair on her phone. 

‘Proud Mumma doing what proud mummys do,’ she wrote in her caption alongside the image. 

It comes after Kate said she won’t be encouraging Mae to follow in her footsteps, and instead wants her to walk her own path in life.

Kate, who rose to fame playing Sally Fletcher on Home and Away, told The Australian Women’s Weekly she won’t be pushing her child ‘in any direction’.

‘Everyone on Home and Away thought I was only working part time and everyone at school thought that I had the best job in the world because I got to leave school early,’ she said.

‘But combine all that together and it’s a bit full-on! I just want to make sure that I’m not pushing Mae in any direction. I don’t want her to think that she belongs to anyone apart from herself.’

Kate said her daughter, who she shares with ex-husband Stuart Webb, has already expressed an interest in starting a YouTube channel, which she said is ‘never going to happen’.

While she’s not encouraging her vlogging career, she is keen for Mae to pursue extracurricular activities she enjoys.

‘I encourage her to try lots of different things. She does dancing on Saturdays as well as gymnastics and swimming,’ she said.

‘Because the one thing I didn’t do when I was growing up – I was a bit busy working on a TV show – was that I never played extracurricular sport and I never learnt a musical instrument.’
