Becoming a big sister has been good for 6 ½-year-old Ella Olivia Stiller, says mom Christine Taylor in a new interview with OK! "It’s always just a great thing to see your kids connecting and you see the different stages," she explains. Whereas Ella "used to always be the one looking up to the older girls," Christine shares that since welcoming little brother Quinlin Dempsey, 3, her daughter has taken on "that kind of big girl role."
It’s a role she clearly relishes! Christine shared that Ella is an occasional playmate for 2 ½-year-old Suri Cruise, daughter of actors Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. Despite the collective fame of their parents, their time spent together is "just like any other play date," Christine says.
"[Suri's] amazing, [Tom and Katie] are terrific. When little kids get together you just let them do their thing and there’s no outside elements, you know what I mean?"
Ella and Quinlin are Christine’s children with husband Ben Stiller, whom she married in 2000.
