Oh, how quickly they grow! Téa Leoni stepped out at the 12th Annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball in NYC on Nov. 27 alongside her kids — and we seriously can’t wrap our heads around the fact that her daughter and son have grown up so much.
The Madam Secretary actress, 52, attended the star-studded event with her daughter Madelaine, 19, and son Kyd, 16. Téa shares her two children with her ex-husband, David Duchovny. The three were seen laughing and smiling together while posing for pictures on the red carpet.
Téa turned heads while wearing a sparkly, black top with elbow-length sleeves paired with a long, velvet skirt. The blonde beauty accessorized her look with a plain, black clutch, a diamond brooch, and matching jewelry.
Madelaine kept the sparkle theme going as she wore a gorgeous, silver gown with cap sleeves. The young lady left her long blonde locks down over shoulders and carried a matching silver clutch. As for Kyd, the handsome teen donned a classic black tuxedo. However, he spiced up his look by accompanying the outfit with black Chuck Taylor sneakers.
Téa has mentioned countless times how much her kiddos mean to her. And we can’t imagine how much more she appreciates spending time with them since they are growing so quick! In 2015, the mom-of-two told Emmy Magazine that parenting is a huge priority for her.
“My job security is really as a parent,” Téa said at the time. “This show is the icing on the cake.” Though she works 12-18 hour-long days on the set of her CBS series, the superstar mama makes it work. “I am just staring at my children all the time,” Tea added. “The other day they said, ‘Mom, it’s creepy.’ I’m like, ‘I just want to watch you watch TV – I’m desperate for this time.’ And they’re like, ‘Seriously, knock it off.'”
It takes one kick-butt woman to be able to juggle extremely long work days and raising two teenagers, especially when being a single mom. Though her kids are getting older now, it’s easy to say that Téa does a fantastic job!
