Bruce Springsteen's Daughter, Jessica, Just Became an Olympic Medalist (Which Was Shared in a Loving Post from Her Mom)

Wow, there sure is a lot of talent in Bruce Springsteen's family.

Not only is Springsteen one of the world's best-selling music artists, but his wife, Patti Scialfa, is also a singer-songwriter, who has been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for her part in the E Street Band. And now, it looks like this family can add an Olympic medal to their list of achievements.

The couple's daughter, Jessica Springsteen, just took home a silver medal at the Tokyo Olympics in the Equestrian Jumping Team final. Upon winning the medal, the Olympian's mother posted on Instagram and said, “BRINGING HOME THE SILVER...Congratulations to the USA 2020 Equestrian Jumping Team!! What a day…what a ride…”

Scialfa posted a slideshow of photos featuring her daughter and her teammates, as well as their coach. In the second photo, Jessica is seeing flying over a fence on her horse, while the third shows her smiling from the sidelines.

The E Street Band member has been very supportive of her daughter throughout the games. When the equestrian competition began, Scialfa mentioned how she (and Bruce) would be watching the events along with family and friends. “At 5:30 am this morning , @maryannloring @marylumac and @breedofort oh yes and Bruce … will put on our new Olympic sweatshirts and get ready to watch the Individual rounds,” she said. “I am planning on serving Peach Bellinis right at 6:00 when the horses go in the ring!!! Cheers!!!!”

We've learned where Jessica got her love for horses too, because on Mother's Day earlier this year, the equestrian competitor posted a throwback where she and Scialfa were seen in matching jodhpurs and other riding gear. Jessica had written, “Luckiest. Happy mother’s day!”

Now we'll just be excitedly awaiting a post from The Boss.
