Julia Roberts is notoriously private with her personal life, but sometimes she posts snippets of her family on social media to mark special occasions – and her twins' 17th birthday is one of those shareable moments.

"17 of the Sweetest years of life," she wrote on Instagram alongside a throwback photo of her holding daughter Hazel and son Phinnaeus. The twins were perched on Roberts' chest wearing newborn hats.

Actress Emma Roberts, who is Julia Roberts' niece, commented with three heart emojis.

The Academy Award-winning actress shares the twins, 17, and son Henry, 14, with her husband, cinematographer Daniel Moder.

He also acknowledged the big day on Instagram. "These rabble rousers… 17 today," Moder shared with a more recent snap on the twins. "Thank you for helping me through fatherhood."

The couple only occasionally shares photos of their kids, but Hazel turned heads when she hit the red carpet with her dad at this year's Cannes Film Festival for the screening of "Flag Day."

Roberts has also shared rare snaps of herself and Moder to mark their wedding anniversaries for the last few years.

"19 years," she captioned a selfie of the two beachside in July. "Just getting started!"

A year earlier, she honored the moment by sharing a sweet pic of her kissing Moder on the cheek and added the hashtag "#heckyes" for making it 18 years.

Roberts, 54, and Moder, 52, met on the set of her film "The Mexican" in 2000. The two, who tied the knot on July 4, 2002 in Taos, New Mexico, will celebrate 20 years together next summer.

The "Eat Pray Love" star previously raved to People in 2017 about her marriage to Moder.

"I mean every day my husband walks in the door it's like a recurring dream," she told the outlet at the time. "I'm like, 'Ah, he's back!' "

In May 2019, Moder shared a sweet family photo with Roberts and their kids. He wrote: "That pretty mama in the middle. We love you so much."
