by CBB correspondent Joyce:
Diane Keaton turned heads when she adopted not one, but two children in her 50s. Becoming a parent later in life never fazed the devoted single mom though, who says she is more in tune with the younger generation now because of her daughter, Dexter, 11, and son, Duke, 6.
I live with two very young people, so I understand what it’s like living with a six-year-old and an 11-year-old. My 11-year-old – my daughter, bless her – is already kind of culturally aware of the singing groups and the teen movies.
While Dexter is gravitating towards teen fare, neither she or her brother could care less about their mother’s numerous celluloid moments.
They have no interest in what I do, which I think is very healthy. We live a relatively normal – well, sort of normal – life.
The family recently celebrated Diane’s 61st in relatively normal, un-Hollywood fashion as well. Regretting the big, blow-out and "awkward" 60th shindig she had last year, Diane spent her big day with Dexter and Duke.
This year it was really nice because I just had dinner with my kids. We didn’t make too much of it.
Diane, who has never married, adopted Dexter in 1996 and Duke in 2001.
