She said: “No matter what was going on in my life, you always asked me if I was having fun.

Thank you for being the greatest father.”

Isla’s emotion-filled message is a response to the 46-year-old’s sharing of a glimpse into the hectic life of a busy mother. In the Australian newspaper Women’s Weekly, the star revealed how hands-on she regards her parenting style.
“One of the perks of being an actor is you have a bunch of silly voices in your back pocket to whip out at bedtime,” the actress gushes as she continues: “If somebody is having a problem at school or something, I’ll tailor the bedtime story a little bit to align with whatever’s going on.”
The actress is married to another actor, Sacha Baron Cohen, who is also an actor. The couple has three children together: Olive, 14 years old; Elula, 10; and Montgomery, 5 years old.
