Back in 2008, a 37-year-old Uma Thurman was starting to miss that sweet newborn baby smell. At the time, her kids with ex-husband Ethan Hawke were 9 and 5. 

“I’d like to have more children,” the Kill Bill actress told Redbook. “I asked the doctor; she said there’s still time. I still have the sippy cups.” 

Thurman was wise to save them. The Pulp Fiction star welcomed her third child, a girl named Luna in 2012. (She and Luna’s father, French hedge-fund tycoon Arpad Busson, called off their engagement in 2014 after dating for seven years.)

The 47-year-old mom of Maya, 19, Levon, 16, and Luna, 5, told Us Weekly at the Wednesday, April 11, Room to Grow Gala that she still has a “few sippy cups” in her cupboard. “But not because I want more children!” she declared. “The shop is closed. I got lucky, I have three healthy, beautiful children. Touch wood.”

Maya is following in her famous parents’ footsteps: she plays Jo March in the PBS miniseries adaption of Louisa May Alcott’s 1986 classic, Little Women, which will air May 13. 

 

Thurman and the Before Midnight actor, 47, are more than happy to share tips with their daughter— but it doesn’t sound like she needs them. “We always try to give our children the best advice we can,” Thurman told Us. “All my children are very independent and spirited and I’m proud of them.” 

Hawke, meanwhile, wasn’t done in the kid department either. He and his wife, Ryan, are parents of Clementine, 9, and Indiana, 6.
