Who's the handsome man on Jennifer Connelly's arm? Her 16-year-old son! The 42-year-old actress brought her eldest son, Kai, as her date to the 19th annual Artwalk in New York City on Tuesday, Oct. 29.

The mother and son posed for a photo together, and Connelly looked noticeably shorter than her teenage son — even in heels. The Dilemma actress looked like a proud mother as she held Kai's arm, and showed off her classy little black dress and short new hairdo. Kai looked handsome in a black suit and tie while giving a big smile to photographers.

Kai is Connelly's only child from a previous relationship with photographer David Dugan. The New Yorker is also mom to son Stellan, 10, and daughter Agnes, 2, with husband Paul Bettany, whom she wed in 2003. 

In a recent interview with Redbook, the Oscar winner and busy mom of three said she doesn't think about aging too much. "When I do, it's to wonder what we [as a family] want out of life," she shared. "Are we doing the things that we enjoy? I don't want to put happiness off to the future, because you never know what life will bring. As I get older, I have a clearer sense of what's important to me."
