Kristi Yamaguchi Wants Her Daughter To Figure Skate -- But Only For The Right Reasons

Will Kristi Yamaguchi's daughters follow down her icy path? Only time will tell. For now, mom just wants her children to have fun.

Although her youngest, Emma, does skate recreationally, Yamaguchi isn't pushing her to take it more seriously.

"If she chooses to be competitive with it then I'll support it," the former Olympian told HuffPost Live. "I love skating and if that's the path she chooses then I'll totally support it, but I know I can't push her because I know what it takes and it has to come from her."

If so, one thing is for sure: Emma will have really big skates to fill.
