Danny Dyer referenced West Ham supporters' chant about his daughter Dani's relationship with forward Jarrod Bowen after the Hammers beat Lyon on Thursday night.
West Ham progressed to the semi-finals of the Europa League after a 3-0 victory over the French side secured a 4-1 aggregate win for the Premier League club.
Craig Dawson and Declan Rice put West Ham in control of the match before Bowen, who is the boyfriend of Dyer's daughter Dani, rounded off the scoring in the second half.
West Ham fans currently have an X-rated chant about the forward, which goes: "Bowen’s on fire and he's s*****g Dani Dyer."
But her father clearly doesn't have too much of an issue with the chant, after taking to social media to praise Bowen's performance.
"Jarrod Bowen is on fire…and he's… cuddling me daughter or something. So proud. What a f***ing night," wrote Dyer.
"Love to all the West Ham family."
Dani replied to the post: "Ffs," following by laughing face emojis.
Bowen took a similar approach, commenting: "Hahahahahaaha", alongside more laughing face emojis.
Speaking after the match, Bowen described the win as the most memorable of his career.
"It's the best night of my life, for sure," Bowen told West Ham's website.
"Like I said before about missing the Sevilla game, when I was there but I wasn’t there if that makes sense, to do it again tonight away from home, seeing the fans, seeing the way we got their crowd rocked, it was unbelievable."
West Ham will now face Eintracht Frankfurt in the semi-finals of the Europa League after the German club beat Barcelona 4-3 on aggregate.
And Bowen is taking nothing for granted against the Bundesliga side.
"We don't want to be losing semi-finalists. We respect the opposition that we've got," he added.
"We've beaten two great teams so far [in Sevilla and Lyon], but Frankfurt are a great team as well, as to beat Barcelona who were probably favourites to win the whole thing, we’re going to respect them.
"But we’ve got to be respected as well, with the teams we’ve knocked out and the manner in which we’ve done it as well.
"We’ve got a lot of Premier League games coming up now that we want to focus on because we want to finish in the European places again, and what an opportunity for us."
