Busy Philipps was seen stepping out for a stroll with her daughter in New York City on Friday.

The 43-year-old American actress cut a stylish figure in a floral top paired with a long denim skirt as she made her way around Lower Manhattan with her 14-year-old daughter, Birdie Leigh Silverstein.

Busy’s blouse had a frilled collar and puffed-up sleeves, and she dressed down her ensemble with a set of brown-and-white trainers.

Birdie rocked a classic look with a navy blue dress decorated with constellation-like white dots, which she also wore with athletic shoes. 

Last year, Birdie nabbed a role in With Love, a series from Amazon Prime Video. This was not the first job for the young actress as she had previously worked with her mother on two episodes of the show Cougar Town in 2014 and 2015. 

Busy also shares another nine-year-old daughter, Cricket Pearl, with ex-husband Marc Silverstein.

In May, the mother-of-two announced her 14-year marriage to Marc was coming to an end as the duo had amicably decided to divorce. She announced the split on her podcast Busy Philipps Is Doing Her Best.

‘It’s been a really long time that Marc and I have been separated, and our kids know, our families know, our friends know,’ she revealed.

Following this, the siren made headlines in June when she was arrested for civil disobedience as she protested during a rally outside the United States Supreme Court.

She was wearing a shirt with the words ‘I Will Aid and Abet Abortion’ as she was taken away by Capitol Police for blocking traffic.

After the incident, the actor took to Instagram, posting an image of herself with a raised fist as she stood in front of a sign that read ‘There’s No Hate Like Christian Love.’

This came after the Supreme Court ended constitutional protections for abortion that had been in place for nearly 50 years by overturning the landmark 1973 Roe v Wade ruling and handed power back to the individual states to decide whether or not to allow abortion.

On her 43rd birthday in June, the actress shared a video of herself exercising with the caption, ‘It’s my birthday, so even though I woke up crying, I’m making myself move,’ she wrote. ‘Because I won’t stop. We can’t stop.’

Philipps has publicly supported a woman’s right to choose for years. In 2019, she revealed she had an abortion when she was 15.

‘I know that people feel very strongly about abortion, but let me just say this. Women and their doctors are in the best position to make informed decisions about what is best for them. Nobody else. Nobody.

‘Here is the reality. No bill that criminalizes abortion will stop anyone from making this incredibly personal choice, but these laws will put more women at risk. Every woman deserves compassion and care, not judgment and interference when it comes to their own bodies.

‘I’m telling you this because I’m genuinely really scared for women and girls all over the country,’ she said.
