Ordóñez posted the photograph, featured Tuesday on the front page of Spain's leading daily El País, on his official Instagram account a day before.

The caption reads: "Carmen's debut, she's the 5th generation of fighters in our family . My grandfather and my father were bullfighters. My dad did this with me and I've done it with my daughter Cayetana and now with Carmen #bloodpride"
