Amanda Peet just loves hugs from her little girl, Frances! Hugs and kiss are the best part of any parent’s day — don’t you agree?

Just look at this super cute mommy-daughter pair! Amanda Peet, 38, and her 3-year-old daughter, Frances Pen Benioff, just couldn’t stop smiling as they had a playdate together in New York City on Sept. 29.

Tiffani Thiessen can’t wait till her daughter is old enough to arrange playdates with Mario Lopez!

“One surprise of motherhood for me was how little control I have,” the 38-year-old 2012 actress said in an interview with Cookie magazine. “I thought it would be an extended, blissful romance with me at the helm, cuddling this little creature to life. It’s been bittersweet and humbling to let her lead, and to try not to be perfect myself.”

Amanda feels it’s important to set an example for your kids. “When you’re able to identify your passions, then your child will be able to identify hers,” she said. “It’s a great template.”

Did Amanda Peet have a pretty baby bump when she was pregnant with Molly?
