If anyone’s been keeping a close eye on Dancing with the Stars this season, it’s contestant David Arquette’s daughter Coco.
The adorable little one – with mommy Courteney Cox in tow – cheers on her dad from the sidelines of the ballroom each week, and has even started providing her own commentary on some of the judges’ criticism.
“She says sometimes the judges have on their cranky pants,” Arquette, 40, told PEOPLE of his daughter, 7, backstage after Monday night’s show. “She says, ‘Let’s hope they have on their happy pants.’ ”
