During an August 2020 interview with Entertainment Tonight, Foxx shared that she had taken up piano. “That’s what’s been good is we have been able to connect like that,” he said. “My 11-year-old now knows how to play the piano so well, she actually plays my songs while I sing to them,” he added. “She said, ‘I am going on tour with you.’ I am blessed, we are all blessed.”
Foxx also gushed that Anelise was a gun at sport. “She’s playing football with all the boys. She’s playing flag football and she’s the only girl in the league,” he told Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest. “When she got on the football field, at first they didn’t want to throw it to her. But I said, ‘Anelise when you’re out, do like this,’ ” Foxx said as he waved his hands. “She waved her hands and they threw it to her, and she hit for like a 60-yarder. It was crazy.”
