Actress Diane Kruger says she has much to be thankful for this holiday season for her partner and her daughter.
The 43-year-old 'National Treasure' star shared a photo on Instagram of her daughter on vacation with Kruger's partner; Norman Reedus.
“I know you won’t remember these walks and you won’t remember these ‘talks,’ but I hope that you’ll always remember how much you’re loved and how thankful we are to have you in our lives little one,” she captioned the photo.
“And how grateful I’ll always be to @bigbaldhead to have given me such a wonderful gift and to walk with me hand in hand ♥️ from my family to yours Happy Thanksgiving."
Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus
Reedus and Kruger have been public about their relationship since 2017. But they have been private about the details of their infant daughter.
Kruger keeps her child's face out of photographs and asked fans to do the same after paparazzi pics were taken without Kruger's permission.
“Dear fans, dear non fans, dear paparazzi and anyone with a conscience. We were just tagged in these paparazzi pictures of me and our daughter. These pictures were taken without our consent and expose a vulnerable and innocent baby,” the "Inglourious Bastards," Kruger wrote.
Keeping Her Infant Daughter Out Of Public Eye
Kruger doesn't like to expose her infant daughter's face to the public so she keeps her hidden. She explained in a statement why.
“While we understand that some people would like to see a picture of our daughter, we as parents, want nothing more than allow her to grow up in privacy and safety,” she continued. “Me and @bigbaldhead would kindly ask you not to repost these pictures and help us achieve that goal.”
“Whoever has already posted them, please take them down. Please put yourself in our shoes. We are just like any parent wanting the very best for our child," Kruger concluded.
One Happy Family
They are very protective of their baby daughter but that doesn't mean the family of three aren't happy. They explore the world together and have fun this holiday season. this past July, the family celebrated Kruger's 43rd birthday with a trip to Paris.
She’s so big, it’s crazy. She’s teething … so the nights can be hard for her. She’s drooling all over,” the actress said afterward on Live with Kelly and Ryan. “But she loves Paris. It’s the second time in her life she’s [visited] Paris.”
She told Kelly and Ryan she moved to Paris when she was 15 and she speaks French.
"Nobody speaks English in Paris as you know," she said.
