Nicole Richie celebrated Mother's Day by paying tribute to the women in her family — mom Brenda Harvey-Richie, newlywed sister Sofia Richie and her 15-year-old daughter Harlow, of whom she rarely shares photos.

Richie famously borrowed her daughter's clothes when she was young, but these days, the tables have turned.

"She takes my clothes all the time," Richie told Entertainment Tonight. "I have just started writing an N with a Sharpie on all of my stuff so that [she knows it's mine]."

Kate Winslet is a mom to three (Mia, 22, with ex-husband Jim Threapleton, son Joe, 19, with ex-husband Sam Mendes, and son Bear, 9, with husband Edward Abel Smith), but has tended to keep her personal and professional lives separate until very recently. In late 2022, Mia made her foray into acting alongside mom Kate in I Am Ruth, playing a mother and daughter in an unscripted episode of a U.K. series, and the two attended the BAFTA TV awards in May 2023 to celebrate.

"I was given new things to respect and admire about my own child," Winslet told Variety about their first time working together.

In addition to giving fans a rare look at his face sans his famous Starchild look, the KISS frontman also shared a glimpse at one of his four children, 11-year-old Emily.

"Family vacation!" Stanley wrote alongside the selfie with his daughter posted to Twitter. "My beautiful Emily brightens the day even more!"

Stanley, who typically keeps his family life private, shares Emily with his wife, Erin Sutton, along with their daughter Sarah, 14, and son Colin, 16.

He is also father to Evan Stanley, 28, whom he shares with his ex-wife, Pamela Bowen.

The veteran actor pulled up with daughters Isabella, 16, Stella, 14 and Gia, 12, whom he shares with wife Luciana Barroso. Absent from the blockbuster event was Barroso's daughter from a previous relationship, 24-year-old Alexia.

Samuel's parents, Affleck and Garner, tend to keep their children Violet, Seraphina Rose and Samuel away from the cameras ... unless, of course, there's a super special occasion, like getting killer courtside seats to see his dad's hometown team, the Boston Celtics. The youngest Affleck was spotted thoroughly enjoying himself at the Lakers' home arena with dad Ben on Dec. 13.

Violet, meanwhile, got her big moment in the spotlight when she got to wear a heart-print Carolina Herrera dress to accompany her superstar mom to the White House State dinner on Dec. 1. The mother-daughter date was extra special, given it was also Violet's 17th birthday.

But this doesn't necessarily mean we'll be seeing more of Violet. Garner has previously spoken out about keeping her out of the public eye, especially off social media, because there aren't enough "positive" outcomes for teenagers on those platforms.

Sarah Jessica Parker makes sure to avoid posting her kids' faces on social media and outside of a premiere here and there, they pretty much stay out of the spotlight.

Another celebrity kid enjoying one of the (some like it) hottest tickets in town? Luna Thurman-Busson, 12, who joined mom for a fun night out (and captured the moment in a sweet post on Uma's Instagram).

In 2012, Uma Thurman welcomed daughter Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence (called Luna) with French financier Arpad Busson, whom she dated from 2007 to 2014.

Though Luna has not been raised in the public eye, she was the subject of a high profile custody battle when her parents separated back in 2014 and Busson sued Thurman for visitation. The case was settled in 2020 as Busson was granted monthly visitation with their daughter.

To prepare for an upcoming project, Robert Downey Jr. knew the perfect kids for the job. Over Halloween weekend, the actor gave a rare glimpse at his two younger children, daughter Avri, 7, and son Exton, 10, as he documented the experience of having his kids shave his head for his upcoming project, The Sympathizer.

The video shows a cute exchange between Downey Jr. and his children as he interrupts their pumpkin carving to ask if they want to help shave his head.

After the job is done, the 7-year-old then transforms her dad's head into a pumpkin (painting it orange with black features) and even tops off the design with a stem.

Downey Jr. shares Avri and Exton with wife Susan Downey and is also father to Indio, whom he shares with ex-wife Deborah Falconer.

As Gwyneth herself knows, getting your teens' photo approval is no easy task. So it's no wonder that we rarely see the star's children with ex Chris Martin (Apple, 18, and son Moses, 16) together on their mom's Instagram!

Jeter had some special cheerleaders on hand to celebrate his induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame — daughters Story, Bella and River.

The five-time World Series champion and wife Hannah typically avoid sharing photos of their children, but brought them (in matching dresses, no less!) to cheer Dad on when he was recognized for his accomplishments by his former team in September 2022.

Hannah opened up about her private family life in November of last year, telling Editorialist magazine, "[Social media] has never felt natural to me. I know it's necessary in my industry, and I absolutely have to when it's part of a contract. But a lot of people post their children and husbands, and for me, that will never be the case."

"Both my husband and I have been in a place in our careers where we have to share so much. And we can handle it," she continued. "But when you love something so much, you want to protect it more than anything in the world. And for me, that's my relationship, that's my kids."

The Office star's teenage son is as rarely seen as a Blockbuster — so this photo shared by Wilson's wife (and Walter's mom) Holiday Reinhorn is a twofer.

The supermodel and the actor very rarely give glimpses into life with their teenage children (seen here outside a restaurant in Athens, Greece). But with Grace graduating from high school and costarring in her mom's campaigns, it's possible we'll be seeing more of them — perhaps following in their parents' footsteps.

The Mad Men star (seen with Laura Dern, Mary Steenburgen and Ted Danson) brought her 10-year-old son Xander Dane to support an organization she's passionate about, Oceana.

"It's not the public's business."

The actors share daughters Ramona, 15, and Gloria, 9, but don't often give glimpses into their lives as parents. But it was a no-brainer for Ramona to accompany her parents to the Gotham Awards to watch her mom win big for her directorial debut, The Lost Daughters — especially since uncle Jake Gyllenhaal was on hand to babysit Gloria.

Asked whether Ramona would follow in her footsteps as a director, Maggie told PEOPLE, "I think she's going to be a supreme court justice ... I'm kidding — but she's an incredible student."

Australian star Danielle Spencer celebrated Mother's Day with a little help from her rarely-seen teen sons with ex Russell Crowe: Charles and Tennyson. The couple divorced in 2018, but both have been committed to raising their kids mostly out of the spotlight.

In 2016, Crowe reflected on the joys and challenges of being a divorced parent. "There is nothing cooler than being that close to your kids," he told Australia's Daily Telegraph. "One of my greatest fears is that over time they won't want to spend all of their school holidays there with me. Because that is the best part of my year, when I have them to myself."

A week after the filing the couple settled on a custody agreement that would allow them to travel with their mother.

Bullock likes to keep her private life private, but she made an exception when she and her daughter, Laila, appeared on Red Table Talk to surprise a nurse on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic.

The star surprised April Buencamino, a nurse manager for the COVID-19 unit at California's Adventist Health (White Memorial) Hospital, where Bullock, her partner Bryan Randall, and her two children, Laila and Louis, donated thousands of KN95 masks to healthcare workers.

After inviting Laila to thank April, she proudly told the group of her daughter: "She's our world superhero. She's the one who'll save the world in our family, so she's ready. She's ready to join you out there April in a few years!"

Can you see the family resemblance? The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star gave fans a rare glimpse of her adult son Tommy Zizzo.

"People say we look alike," she captioned the shot of the young police officer.

"No, you can't comment," she added with a laughing emoji, referencing her decision to disable the comments section on the post.

While the reality star has often spoken about her son from her first marriage, Zizzo has never made an appearance on RHOBH, and likely won't anytime soon.

"Probably not," Girardi said during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen last year. "I don't think so, no. You know he has a private life; he's a police officer."

Fishel's son Adler (pictured here with former Boy Meets World castmate Ben Savage) was born on June 24, 2019, four weeks earlier than expected. The new mom decided she would not be posting photos of her son's face, explaining her decision in a lengthy Instagram post.

She shared, "Currently, @jensenkarp and I have chosen to keep Adler's face off our social media pages. We are two people who made a conscious choice to be in the public eye and share what would normally be private moments with the public. Adler isn't capable of making that choice for himself and until he is, we've decided to shield him from places where strangers can comment on him."

Fishel expressed that it was a difficult decision for the couple, because, "I wanna show you my baby every day. He's cuter than this 👼 but I worry about a couple things. 1. His safety. There are weirdos out there. Enough said. 2. Putting pictures and facts about him onto the internet that he doesn't have any say in. I'd like for him to be able to curate his own footprint on the internet in the future without being mortified we posted about his his fear of swimming or his first crush."

In a 2019 interview with PEOPLE, Kruger said that she chooses to keep her daughter's name and face private for several reasons.

"Well first and above all, it's safety," Kruger said. "We have The Walking Dead empire which has a lot of very intense fandomship that comes with it."

Elaborating about the challenges that come with admirers of her boyfriend's zombie series, Kruger added, "We had a couple [of] incidences before her arrival that were not so fun to deal with and so my main concern's her safety."

"And secondly, she is an innocent, young, vulnerable baby and I think I just don't understand why America doesn't have better laws for children," she continued.

Still, she has shared a few particularly sweet father-daughter moments, like this one in August 2019.
