George Stephanopoulos and Ali Wentworth’s daughter Elliott is all grown up on big day – see rare, emotional photos

George Stephanopoulos and Ali Wentworth may have had the time of their life at co-anchor Robin Roberts and Amber Laign’s wedding, but the weekend provided for a double dose of emotion for the couple.

On Saturday, September 9, their oldest daughter, Elliott Stephanopoulos, officially became an adult, turning 21, and her mother couldn’t have been prouder.

Ali, 58, took to Instagram to share several photos of their new adult, spanning her childhood and teenage years, to a present photo of hers posing while on vacation in a lace crop-top and jeans.

The actress and comedienne emotionally penned: “When my eldest daughter, Elliott, was a baby, people would say – ‘they grow up so fast’… I was sleep-deprived and in pain from constant breastfeeding. It was an insane thought.

“But today – that baby girl is 21. And you know what? It’s true. They grow up so fast. I love this incredible, fearless, brilliant, beautiful woman. And I wish I could stick her back in the stroller for just one more day….”

Elliott herself responded with: “Way to choose the most horrendous pics of my awkward stages,” while a fan added: “You’re a 10. No notes. Love, another mom.”

Elliott is currently a student at Brown University in Providence, while her younger sister, 18-year-old Harper, recently left the family home for college as well, beginning as a freshman at Vanderbilt University in Nashville.
