Kelsey Grammer is ''so proud'' his daughter has been named Miss Golden Globe 2015.

Greer Grammer will assist hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey on stage during the 72nd annual awards ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on January 11.

Asked how the 'Frasier' star, who has six children from different relationships, and her mother, Barrie Bucker, reacted to the news, the 22-year-old actress said her mother ''couldn't believe it'' and her father is ''so proud.''

The 'Awkward' star struggled to keep the news a secret before it was officially announced on Thursday (20.11.14), saying: ''I've known for a week, I found out when I was on vacation, about a week ago, I screamed, danced, jumped up and down! I told my parents but I didn't want to, because I didn't want them telling anyone. I made them promise they wouldn't.

''My mom told me a few times that whenever she'd run into friends she'd want to tell them but remembered she couldn't.''

Greer isn't nervous about the prestigious role as she was previously crowned Miss Regional California Teen in 2011.

She told E! News: ''I've got [walking on stage] covered. I know how to walk. I don't think anyone has given advice because they presume I already know.''

But she is nervous about the possibility of meeting 'Wild' star Reese Witherspoon.

She said: ''That's the name I keep bringing up, because I've been a fan since I was like 10-years-old, 'Legally Blonde'...''

The annual Mr or Miss Golden Globe is usually the child of a celebrity and last year's Miss Golden Globe was Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick's daughter, Sosie Bacon, while legendary actor-and-director Clint Eastwood's daughter, Francesca Eastwood, filled the position in 2012.
