Could Diddy’s 16-year-old daughter Chance Combs be set for Oscars success?

Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs was filled with pride when he brought his eldest daughter, Chance, to the Oscars on Sunday evening, revealing that the 16-year-old is an aspiring actress herself. 

Chance, who walked the red carpet with her rapper father, looked every bit the rising star in a rhinestone-encrusted Dolce & Gabbana gown that she accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, a Jimmy Choo clutch, and Stuart Weitzman heels. 

Diddy, 52, couldn’t help but gush about his daughter and her aspirations during a brief interview with Lavern Cox, who hosted E!’s live red carpet show ahead of the Academy Awards.  

‘I’m speechless — I am speechless. Baby, you look so beautiful, so beautiful,’ the proud dad told his daughter, adding, ‘Her name is Chance Combs. Chance, you tell her.’

Chance explained that she is an ‘aspiring actress,’ saying, ‘It’s my first time at the Oscars, so I am really excited to be here.’

She didn’t hesitate with her answer when Cox asked her which Hollywood star she hoped to work with one day. 

‘Zendaya is one of my biggest inspirations, and someone that I really want to work with in the future,’ Chance said of the ‘Euphoria’ star. 

Her favorite actress happened to be in attendance at the Oscars and had walked the red carpet that night, though it’s unclear if her famous dad was able to nab her an introduction.

Diddy, who introduced Francis Ford Coppola, Al Pacino, and Robert DeNiro on stage in honor of the 50th anniversary of ‘The Godfather,’ also opened up about his daughter’s future plans while speaking to Entertainment Tonight

‘First of all, the biggest thing that’s going on tonight, me bringing my daughter to this, because she’s an inspiring actress and we get to have a date, and I’m just so excited and I’m just so stunned,’ he said. ‘I’m at a loss of words, so, I’m blessed to be here. I’m presenting tonight, and we’re having a good time.’ 

The doting dad shared plenty of videos of Chance on his Instagram Stories on Sunday, including footage of them leaving the Oscars together. 

‘I’m here with my lovely date, Chance,’ he said in one clip, turning the camera toward his daughter. ‘You know you’re gonna be up there one day, right?’ he asked. 

‘Yes, I cannot wait for that day,’ she said.

‘Future best actress,’ Diddy insisted. ‘Somebody save this footage.’ 

Chance’s mother, Sarah Chapman, was equally proud and posted pictures of her daughter getting ready before the show. 

‘Makes my heart sing!!’ she captioned footage of herself watching her daughter walk the red carpet with her dad on TV. 

Chance is one of Diddy’s six kids and the only child he shares with Chapman. 

She was born in July 2006, five months before he welcomed his twin daughters D’Lila Star and Jessie James Combs with his longtime partner Kim Porter.

Diddy and Porter broke up in 2007 after she learned he had secretly fathered Chance with Chapman, who was working in fashion in Atlanta at the time. 

‘It’s not an original script. He’s not the first man who’s cheated,’ she told Essence. ‘He’s not the first man who’s had a baby outside of his relationship. He’s not the originator of this. But at this point in my life — I have girls now — it’s a different program.’

When asked if his infidelity contributed her to her leaving her partner of a decade, she said, ‘Well, that was definitely part of it.’    

Porter, who died of pneumonia in November 2018 at age 47, also shared sons Christian Combs, 23, and Quincy Brown, 30, with her ex. 

Quincy, 30, was adopted by Diddy as a child and raised as his own. His biological father is R&B singer Al B. Sure.

The rapper also has a son Justin Combs, 28, with designer Misa Hilton-Brim.

Diddy initially denied fathering a child with Chapman and waited for DNA results before confirming the paternity of his then 15-month-old daughter.  

‘At first, I wasn’t sure if this was my child,’ he told  The New York Daily News’ Rush & Molloy of Chance at the time. ‘Now that it has become clear she is, I will take care of her for the rest of her life.’

Diddy added that he was ‘committed to being a good father’ to his daughter, and he has kept his word over the years. Chance is close with her five siblings, especially her 15-year-old twin sisters. 

All three of them are believed to be students at Sierra Canyon, a private school located in Los Angeles that costs just over $40,000 a year.

The modeling milestone came just weeks after she celebrated her 16th birthday with her family in the Bahamas’ Exuma Islands, where she frolicked in the ocean, fed iguanas, and visited Pig Beach, an uninhabited island populated by feral pigs. 

Chance has been a regular fixture on the red carpet thanks to their famous father, and she already has a few magazine covers under their belt. 

She and her sisters graced the cover of Essence’s 49th-anniversary issue with their dad in 2019. They also posed with him during a Vanity Fair cover shoot last year, looking regal in gowns and intricate updos.

Chance has more than 171,000 followers, though she has yet to be given a coveted blue checkmark verifying her account.

So far, the only acting credit listed on her IMBD page is the role of Maggie in the 2019 short film ‘Gray News Network.’ 

However, if her father’s gushing at the Oscars is any indication, she is poised to become Hollywood’s next big star. 

Just a few days before the awards ceremony, Chance unveiled one of her new headshots on Instagram. With her father’s connections, she’ll likely have no problem scoring roles when she is ready.  

Chance’s older brother Quincy is also an actor and has been featured in the Fox show ‘Star’ and the Starz series ‘Power Book III: Raising Kanan.’
