The Boss' daughter will travel to the Tokyo Olympics later this month.
The newest member of America's Olympic squad will be non-other than Jessica Springsteen.
The daughter of Bruce Springsteen will compete as a show jumper on her horse Don Juan van de Donkhoeve at one of this Summer's major sporting events.
Although she has won several international competitions before, this is the first time she will be a fully-fledged Olympian, having been on the United States' practice squad for the 2012 games in London.
The 29-year-old athlete ranked 27th in the world, celebrated on her Instagram, writing, "Been dreaming of this since I can remember!
"Endless gratitude for my team, friends and family for helping me make this a reality."

Meanwhile, Hot Press has recently dug into our archives to look at Bruce Springsteen's iconic gig at Slane Castle back in 1985.
Here's how we called it at the time:
"The journey passed in the kind of party-atmosphere which Bruce presumed had prevailed all day - (he presumed because he couldn't remember). About ten miles outside Dublin the driver shouted good-naturedly to the revellers down the back 'I'll turn on the lights now if someone will roll me a joint.' The lights went on and Bruce, contemplating his mud-caked legs and scratched arms, wondered if next year would be as much fun."
