Gene Simmons Celebrates Daughter Sophie’s Engagement With Instagram Photo in Full KISS Makeup and Costume (Officially the Scariest Father-in-Law Ever)

If you thought your father-in-law was scary, imagine seeing your bride walk down the aisle with her dad in full KISS makeup and costume. We don’t know if that’s what’s going to happen to Gene Simmons’ daughter, Sophie Simmons, but if the legendary rocker’s celebratory Instagram post for Sophie’s engagement to boyfriend James Henderson is any indication, it might.

Simmons posted a pic on the social media platform of himself in full KISS makeup and costume alongside his normally-dressed 30-year-old daughter, who is also a singer.

“Sophie little got engaged this week,” he wrote, along with a sign-of-the-horn emoji. (At least he kept his tongue in his mouth.)

Simmons also reshared an Instagram story of the happy family that Sophie’s brother Nick posted. “My little sister is 30 and engaged and I am freaking out right now because she is smol,” Nick wrote.

Sophie announced the engagement – which happened on her 30th birthday – with her own Instagram post. “‘This is the time,'” she captioned a black-and-white pic of the impressive bauble, adding an engagement ring emoji.

The location tag of her post was Zurich, Switzerland, where KISS had a concert as part of their “End of the Road” farewell tour that night.

One thing’s for sure: Sophie seems to be a daddy’s girl. Good luck, James. You’re going to need it.
