Jodie Foster was spotted on a rare outing with her youngest son Kit in New York City on Tuesday afternoon.
The 21-year-old towered over his 60-year-old actress mother as they strolled through the crowded streets with Jodie’s doting wife Alexandra Hedison, 53.
Jodie – who was last pictured with Kit in Summer 2021 – looked casual-cool in a simple white T-shirt and green trousers with a bright yellow hat on top of her head.
The close-knit family stopped by several shops, including a Boba tea shop that sold drinks to go.
They made the long trek from Manhattan’s West Village to Rockefeller Center in Midtown Manhattan.

Jodie shares Kit and 24-year-old son Charles with her former film producer Cydney Bernard.
She and Cydney split in May 2008 after 15 years together.
They began dating in 1993 after meeting on the set of romance drama Sommersby.
Both Kit and Charles were conceived via in vitro fertilization (IVF), but Jodie has never revealed the identity of the boys’ father.
She’s also made it a point to keep her and Cydney’s sons out of the Hollywood spotlight.
The ‘Taxi Driver’ star brought Kit and Charles to the 2013 Golden Globes, where they saw her receive the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award.
Her “heroic co-parent” Cydney was also present at the ceremony.
In her acceptance speech, Jodie called her sons “amazing” and her “reason to breathe easy and move on.”
The two-time Oscar winner previously admitted that as she got older, she found it hard to let her go.
“Letting go was a challenge. And that’s what I’m doing now. It’s the worrying thing. That’s what you’ll find,” she said Us weekly in 2018.
“Just because they’re asleep doesn’t mean you stop worrying about them.” “There’s a switch that’s flipped and never turned off.”
In 2009, after breaking up with Cydney, Jodie began a romantic relationship with writer/producer Cindy Mort.
They reportedly met in 2006 while working on the psychological thriller The Brave One.
