Zendaya’s mom said she had to “name drop” her own daughter to get through security at the Emmys on Monday (September 12).
At the ceremony at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, Zendaya won her second Emmy for her starring role in HBO’s unflinching teen drama euphoria.
On Tuesday (September 13), Zendaya’s mom, Claire Stoermer, posted a photo to Instagram Stories of her hugging her daughter at the Emmys.
However, in her caption, she noted that she was stopped by security guards from approaching the star’s table and asked who she was.
“I made my way to Z before they gave her the Emmy and hugged her the most and said… breathe!!!” she wrote gem insider.
“The man who tried to stop me said, ‘Where are your IDs?’ I said ‘I’m Zendaya’s mother’ and moved on!! hahaha! I never call Drops that, but I have to!”
After the event, the actress revealed that the first person she wrote after her win was her boyfriend Tom Holland, who was unable to join her at the ceremony because he was in New York City filming Apple TV+ series The crowded room.
“I didn’t have to text my mom because my mom was already there. She’s here tonight, which is very special,” Zendaya said.
“And I write[ed] my friend,” she added with a smile, delighting fans on social media.
Earlier, Emmys host Kenan Thompson made a joke about Leonardo DiCaprio and Zendaya, telling the audience that the 26-year-old actress was “too old” to date the Oscar winner.
“26 is a weird age in Hollywood. You’re old enough to play a high schooler but too old to date Leonardo DiCaprio,” the comedian said as Zendaya buried her head in her hands to hide her reaction.
