Conner is so tall and handsome. Good to see him and his dad 🙂

He is a very handsome young man. I read somewhere that they bumped into Keith at the race and were chatting with him. Nice to see extended families getting along.

Wow, Connor is really growing up! He’s a very handsome young man!

CBB, Thank you for NOT saying “adopted son”. It is so annoying when other news outlets refer to his older children with the side bar of “adopted”. They are his children, all three of them.

Connor looks very happy, I love this family.

I know it may sound weird, but he even looks like Tom. Very handsome.

By the way, I was at the Daytona 500 and was standing next to Nicole Kidman, she was there watching Keith sing the pre-race show. So I am sure she got to spend some time with her son too. Though I didn’t see Sunday with her. She is so pretty in person!

I’m going to go ahead and second what T said. Thank you for not saying “Adopted son” and simply saying “son.” The fact that CBB has always referred to all children, whether or adopted or not, as simply the children of their parents is what made me love this site to begin with. Hopefully more sites will learn from this and follow suit.

Also, isn’t it cute how he has his dad’s smile? He certainly is growing up to be a handsome boy🙂

Liz on

talk about handsome! connor is growing into one gorgeous guy!

Aya on

J-lin, it is true, I have always thought Connor resembled Tom as well.

coco on

i know its been said already, but i too have always felt like connor looks a lot like tom, weirdly enough.he’s truly his daddy son!

Jenise on

I have to agree with J and Aya…I have always said that Conner physically resembles Tom as much as a biological son would…I also don’t want to sound , LOL. Very handsome duo…

simms on

like father like son

jazzie on

Thank you!!! I have always said how much Connor looks like Tom, but people don’t usually agree with me.

Danielle on

Could Connor really be his son? Does anyone know his adoption story?

Aya on

Omg Danielle would that not be the story of the year though🙂 It wouldn’t surprise me at all ~

Stephany on

He is going to be a heartbreaker in a few short years (well, maybe he already is!). He is so handsome and TALL! He’s just about Tom’s height!

Lisa Douglas on

I so agree about the family resemblance. Since no one seems to know anything about Connor’s adoption story (and it isn’t any of our business, of course), maybe it was more of a surrogate situation?
