I can’t be alone in thinking that Julia Roberts has been around forever.
The iconic actress has been a fixture of the Hollywood scene for decades now, and the fact that she’s a firm fan favorite is beyond reproach.
Now 55, Roberts has long-since embraced motherhood. In fact, her children – that she shares with Danny Moder – are now 18 years old!
Yes, difficult as it is to believe, the Pretty Woman star’s kids are all grown up. She recently shared an adorable throwback picture that created waves across social media, and, well, you might want to sit down before you see how Hazel and Finn look now …
Julia Roberts has been a mainstay at the top of the acting scene for about as long as any of us can remember.
The Oscar-winning actress has appeared in some of the most successful films of the past three decades, and yet it’s common knowledge that her legions of fans hardly know anything about her.
We do know one thing, mind, and that’s that when Roberts became a wife and mother, her life changed for the better.
Nowadays, most celebrities have social media accounts and interact with their fans and share pictures of themselves and their family on a daily basis. But Julia Roberts, hailed as one of the biggest movie stars ever, hasn’t jumped on that train yet.
There’s a Twitter account registered under her name that has more than 540,000 followers, but the person behind the account hasn’t tweeted even once.
Facebook, then? Well, no, she’s not active on there, either.
“I also think I got lucky because … the strange culture of celebrity and the Internet age — I kind of am too old for that silly mess that goes on. I’m glad about that. It’s helped that I’m definitely of a particular age,” she said.
The only social media platform where Roberts shares updates is her Instagram page, but even then, she rarely posts photos of her family.
No, Roberts hasn’t shared many pictures of her children at all over the years, preferring to keep them away from the public.
That’s perhaps why a recent throwback picture she decided to share with the world caused as much of a stir as it did.
In a rare post, Roberts celebrated her twins turning 18, with a throwback fit to melt hearts.
In the photo, Roberts is holding one of her babies while the other one looks on. “Love you,” she captioned the photo.
Roberts and Danny Moder – the twins’ father – married back in July 2002, after Roberts had engaged in romances with a number of other high-profile men.
Julia Roberts first marriage
Over the years, Julia dated several well-known actors, including Benjamin Bratt and Kiefer Sutherland. Once dubbed America’s sweetheart, she had many men waiting in line for her.
In the prime of her career, Julia started dating singer-songwriter Lyle Lovett. The singer could not believe his luck, and spontaneously agreed to get married to the actress. However, with all the pressure they were under, the marriage did not last long.
In fact, the couple tied the knot in 1993 and were divorced by 1995.
Five years later, the Pretty Woman actress found the love of her life behind the camera. In 2000, she met cameraman Daniel Moder met on the set of The Mexican. They later married in 2002.
Earlier this year, Roberts opened up about her joy when it comes to being a present mother to her three kids and a loving wife to her husband.
“When I’m not working, [being a homemaker] is my full-time job,” Roberts said during a “CBS This Morning” appearance. “It isn’t rainbows and kittens every day, but it does bring me a lot of joy.
She added: “The life that I have built with my husband, [and] the life that we’ve built with our children, that’s the best stuff. To come home at the end of the day, triumphantly, to them.”
Julia Roberts never fails to amaze! Such a talented and beautiful woman, and a fantastic mother to boot!
