Amy Adams Just Shared a Very Rare Photo of Her Only Child

The actor's daughter with husband Darren Le Gallo just turned 11.

Some celebrities are known for sharing every move they make on social media, while others lean in the other direction, like Amy Adams. The A-list actor tends to keep her private life private, so you may be surprised to hear she even has an Instagram account. She has only posted 19 times, but, over the weekend, Adams made a rare Instagram appearance to share a photo of her daughter on her birthday.

Aviana Le Gallo, who Adams shared with her husband, artist Darren Le Gallo, is newly 11 and is the couple's only child. Adams and Le Gallo got married in 2015 after 14 years together and seven years engaged. Five-year-old Aviana was in attendance at their small wedding.

Six years later, in honor of Aviana's 11th birthday, both Adams and Le Gallo took to Instagram to share some very rare photos of her and to celebrate her birthday. Read on to see what the proud parents had to say.

In his Instagram post, Le Gallo shared three photos, including a portrait of Aviana seen here.

"Happy Birthday Aviana!!" Le Gallo wrote. "I can't believe my girl is 11yrs old today!!! You are such an incredible human • I'm so very proud of you • Your spirit • Your heart • Your creativity • I adore you #grateful."

The last photo shows Aviana at an art gallery, which Le Gallo said was how she wanted to spend her 11th birthday. "The last pic is from today," he wrote. "One of her BDay wishes was to go to the Art Gallery that re-opened today in Ireland."

The parents have both shared other moments from family life.

While Adams doesn't post photos of her daughter often, she has shared some personal posts, like old photos of herself with her parents and a picture from her wedding day, where you can see five-year-old Aviana.

Le Gallo also shares old pictures from throughout his and Adam's 20-year relationship and he recently posted a Mother's Day Instagram of Adams and their daughter. "Happy Mother's Day," he wrote alongside a photo of Adams and Aviana looking at a rainbow, with their faces obscured. "What an incredible example & guide our daughter has in you. Lucky to be witness to your unconditional love!!"

Adams and Le Gallo had already been engaged for two years when Aviana came along, and they weren't rushing into marriage. In a 2016 interview with Allure, Adams said that Aviana "wanted a family wedding," which pushed them to make it official after putting their marriage off for years. "We were going to do it the summer that I got The Fighter, and then we were going to do it the following year. There was always something," Adams said. "We talked about it again, and Aviana really wanted us to."
