Olympic gymnast Laurie Hernandez is giving whole a Disney mood with her Outfit of the Day, but instead of feeling like one of the iconic princesses, the gold medal champion is thinking more along the lines of Prince Eric. 20-year-old Hernandez took to Instagram on Saturday afternoon from her home in Southern California, which is near the National Gymnastics Training Center, where Hernandez has been hard at work as she continues on her journey to make Team USA for the Tokyo Olympics in 2021.

No Need for a Prince

Laurie Hernandez shared a selfie from her bathroom on Saturday as she got ready for the day. Wearing a loose-fitting white blouse tucked into a black skirt, the gold medal Olympian knew exactly where she fell on the Disney spectrum.

"Prince Eric Who?" she captioned the Instagram Story in reference to Ariel's iconic true love in "The Little Mermaid."

It is unclear where Hernandez was headed while giving off the royally hot vibes, but she was clearly feeling the entire look.

Along with having fun, Laurie Hernandez has been showcasing her hard work and dedication as she continues on the journey to earn a spot on the upcoming gymnastics squad for Team USA in the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.

Hernandez famously won gold in the team event at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro games as part of the Final Five alongside teammates Simone Biles, Madison Kocian, Gabby Douglas and Aly Raisman. She also won a silver medal for herself on the balance beam.

It's been 4 years since Hernandez won gold in Rio, but it's also been 4 years since she claimed another important championship, the Mirror Ball Trophy from "Dancing with the Stars." Hernandez was recently reminiscing about her time dancing alongside Valentin Chmerkovskiy while listening to some of her musical numbers:

"I was listening to my broadway/musicals playlist on shuffle when “cell block tango” came on. couldn’t help but think of this insane dwts dance w/ @valentin ! my lil 16 year old broadway geek phase definitely came in handy here," Hernandez wrote alongside a clip of the ABC show.

She remains the youngest winner of "Dancing with the Stars."
