What better date can a dad have than his daughter? Ben Stiller recently walked the New York Film Festival red carpet for his new movie, The Meyerowitz Stories, and he brought along his 15-year-old daughter, Ella Olivia! The teenage girl turned heads as she stunned in her emerald green cocktail dress, gold clutch, and simple jewelry.
Ben and Ella couldn’t have looked any happier on the carpet. Seriously, it made our hearts fill just looking at the photos from the premiere. They’re clearly very close even after Ben’s split from her mother, Christine Taylor. Watch the video below to see the adorable photos from the premiere!
Ben and Christine announced their separation earlier this year after almost two decades of marriage. The couple previously tied the knot in May 2000 and are parents to Ella and son Quinlin Dempsey, 11. They confirmed the split in a joint statement to Entertainment Tonight.
“With tremendous love and respect for each other, and the 18 years we spent together as a couple, we have made the decision to separate,” they shared. “Our priority will continue to be raising our children as devoted parents and the closest of friends. We kindly ask that the media respect our privacy at this time.”

Later, it came out that it was probably their difference in priorities that led to the divorce. “It gets hard — he has a very busy Hollywood career, and she’s been very focused on being a mom,” a source revealed to People. “They are a very loving family. [Taylor] and Ben respect each other and will do anything to make sure their kids are happy.”
We love that Ben isn’t letting the split getting in the way of sharing special moments like a premiere with his kids. We hope we continue to see more of his children in the future!
