Chloe Latanzzi has stunned fans with a beachy snap today, but it wasn’t the clear ocean or bright bikinis that caught fans’ attention.

The daughter of Aussie icon Olivia Newton-John, Chloe is renowned for cranking up the heat with sizzling beachside snaps, but things got far more dangerous than usual this morning when the blonde beauty uploaded a bikini photo with a sneaky guest lurking in the background.

“The life aquatic,” the 34-year-old captioned the photograph of herself and a friend enjoying the crystal clear water.

Fans couldn’t help but notice, however, that someone else was also enjoying the crisp waves.

“Is that a shark behind you?” one baffled fan wondered.

On closer inspection, a small shark can be seen lurking behind the Dancing With the Stars alumni’s leg, something that didn’t escape the notice of several other fans who couldn’t help but share their disbelief.

“Ya not scared of [the] shark behind ya?” one wondered. “Be careful.”

“Lucky shark!” another joked. “Look what's behind the girls.”

Chloe’s friend Jaala pictured in the photo dispelled any concerns fans had, reassuring them the ladies were perfectly aware of their aquatic friend when they took the photo.

“Yes there is a shark behind us and yes we love her,” she wrote.

Others weren’t concerned with the sea creature, instead complimenting the duo on the beautiful photo.

Chloe’s mum was quick to send a compliment.

“Gorgeous girls,” the Grease star wrote on the photograph.

US-born Chloe is the daughter of the Aussie actress and singer and her ex-husband Matt Lattanzi.

It’s not the first time a would-be sultry swimsuit snap was derailed by a distracting object in the background.

Famously, a model’s oceanside posing was thrown off course when a very rotund and jovial man decided to exit the waves behind her and make his way across the frame, making for a hysterical moment.
