Melanie Griffith and former husband Don Johnson reunited Saturday to cheer on their daughter Dakota Johnson as she hosted Saturday Night Live.

Dakota Johnson followed in her mom Melanie Griffith’s footsteps Saturday by hosting Saturday Night Live.

Mom Melanie Griffith hosted in the ’80s and last night Dakota Johnson had her turn with her parents in the audience.

Dakota Johnson mocked Fifty Shades of Grey, the film that has made her a household name.

“I have a feeling at next year’s Oscars, it’s going to be… not anywhere,” she predicted glumly.

Dakota Johnson, who has had a huge month with the release of Fifty Shades of Grey, then pointed out that the movie has “already made like $500 million” and has a “very specific group of fans.”

A leather-clad man then interrupted, but Dakota Johnson said she wasn’t taking any audience questions.

“What if I begged?” he asked, before saying he wanted Johnson to sign wife’s ball gag.

Dakota Johnson then explained who her parents are and shared that her dad proposed to her mom on the show.

“In December of 1988, my mother stood in exact spot and hosted ‘SNL,’” she said. “And this is true — right after the show, my father got down on one knee and proposed to her, for the second time. And exactly 9 months later I was born. So I must’ve been conceived after the show or even during the show.”

The camera then showed Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson in the audience, shielding their eyes.

When asked if they were still embarrassed, dad Don Johnson quipped, “We were just afraid you were going to be naked.”
