Julia Roberts shares RARE throwback baby photo of her son Henry to celebrate his 17th birthday

Julia Roberts joyfully shared a rare throwback photo of her son Henry in celebration of his 17th birthday this Tuesday. 

Henry was pictured as a baby, looking curiously at something off-camera as his mother proudly held him up and beamed at him.

‘Incredible that this baby is now a towering 17 year old wonder!’ the 56-year-old actress gushed in her caption. ‘Happy Birthday beautiful Henry.’

She shares Henry and her 19-year-old twins Hazel and Phinneas with her second husband, cinematographer Daniel Moder. 

The Pretty Woman star rarely posts pictures of her children, and has not done so since November when the twins rang in their latest birthday.

For that occasion, she uploaded a black and white shot of herself sitting cross-legged on the floor with baby Hazel and Phinneas perched on her lap.

‘There are no words for the joy, the fun, the wild rumpus of life together,’ the mother of three wrote heartwarmingly in her caption. 

Julia and Daniel will celebrate their 22nd wedding anniversary on the Fourth Of July, having tied the knot at her New Mexico ranch on Independence Day 2002.

In an interview a few of months after their 20th anniversary, Julia served up a hint at why their marriage has proven to be so enduring.

‘I always say that same thing and I’m sticking with it,’ the Hollywood superstar explained to E! News. ‘It’s making out. Lots of making out.’

She was giving the interview alongside her Ticket To Paradise co-star George Clooney, who joked: ‘I make out with Danny, too.’

During the same promotional tour, Julia and George appeared on the Today show where she offered her reflections on motherhood.

Julia laid out her theory that children ‘have chosen us in this moment to be their stewards and their shepherds in this life experience.’

She met her husband ‘when I was ready,’ whereupon ‘you call these children into your lives when we’re ready to best partner with them.’

The Eat Pray Love star confessed: ‘Sometimes I get gripped with fear of blowing it, and sometimes I’ve just said to my kids, like: “So, today me as a mom, can we just – can we just take that off the boards? Because I blew it.”‘

In 2022, she spoke to the New York Times magazine about taking fewer acting jobs after she welcomed her children into the world.

‘It wasn’t by design. So much as not finding something that I was interested in. I was surprised how quickly the years seemed to go by,’ she said.

‘It’s also the math equation of my husband’s work schedule and the kids’ school schedule and summer vacation. It’s not just, Oh, I think I want to do this,’ she added.

‘I have a sense of great pride in being home with my family and considering myself a homemaker,’ said the August: Osage County actress.
