Salma Hayek fans are heaping praise on her daughter after the 16-year-old took a gorgeous photo showing the bikini-clad actress taking in the view on a beach.

The Magic Mike’s Last Dance star shared the photo on Instagram on Sun., March 24. In the photo, Hayek stood in wet sand as the water pulled to and from the shore around her. It wasn’t clear from Hayek’s post exactly where the photograph was taken.

The image showed Hayek standing at an angle that was slightly below and turned away from the photographer, making the 57-year-old actress’ expression difficult to read. She wore her long dark hair in a ponytail or braid and protected her eyes with dark sunglasses. Hayek also showed off her slim figure in a black bikini.

Hayek credited the photo to Valentina Pinault, the daughter she shares with her husband, French businessman François-Henri Pinault. The couple welcomed their daughter into the world in 2007 and later married in 2009.

“It always helps to have a photographer in the family,” Hayek wrote in a caption accompanying the bikini photo.

One fan reminded Hayek that there was another “helpful” variable working in her favor. “It always helps to have that body,” they pointed out.

Others gushed over Hayek’s beauty and physique, with one calling her “the icon of fitness.”

“Salma, you are so hot and gorgeous, I will always be a fan,” wrote one Instagram user as another wondered, "How can you be so hot!!! Kill me!”

One person suggested that it helped Valentina to have “a beauty queen” to photograph, while others praised her work, telling Hayek that Valentina is, like her mother, “such an icon.”

“Valentina is such an amazing photographer!!! Gooo girl,” one fan commented.
