Kate’s son has grown up so fast! Many years have passed since Ryder was young and his parents were still married in the early 2000s. The pair notoriously moved in after knowing each other for just days in May 2000, marrying mere months later on New Year’s Eve. Ryder came along in Jan. 2004, when Kate was just 23. “I was really young, like, 23, when I had Ryder. So, our relationship has always been a little unusual,” she reflected years later to InStyle. Chris and Kate separated, however, by 2006, and finalized their split in 2007.

After Kate and Chris got divorced, the Golden Globe winner had two more children; her son Bingham with former fiancé, musician Matt Bellamy, and her daughter Rami with her current fiancé, musician Danny Fujikawa. Kate is such a proud mom of three and has wonderful relationships with all her kids.

In February, Ryder revealed that he’s dating Iris Apatow, the 19-year-old daughter of movie director Judd Apatow, 54, and actress Leslie Mann, 50. The couple just recently celebrated their anniversary, and in honor of the special day Ryder shared the cutest photos of the pair on Instagram. “Happy anniversary my love,” he wrote.
