salma-hayek's family thanksgiving

Salma Hayek shares photo of Valentina Paloma and her friends at big Thanksgiving celebration

The Mexican actress gave us a glimpse of her Thanksgiving dinner with an impressively gigantic turkey and Valentina Paloma at the table

To Salma Hayek, family is everything. There's nothing the Mexican actress enjoys more than gathering her nearest and dearest around the table, and if it's for a special occasion such as Thanksgiving, even better! Salma shared lovely pictures of the celebrations with her husband, fashion mogul Francois Henri Pinault, actor friends Bryant Tyree Henry and Hale Applewood, and as the guest of honor, one of the biggest turkeys we have seen in a while!

In another picture, we can appreciate the beautiful glassware and crockery Salma used for the table, all in elegant red, black and white tones, adding some yellow and orange touches with cute pumpkin deco arrangements. And of course, Salma and Francois Henri's 12-year-old daughter Valentina Paloma is enjoying the beautiful family meal. Dressed in a simple black jumper and with her long hair falling over her shoulder in waves, Valentina - along with the rest of her friends - is firmly focused on the food and seems unaware she's been snapped by mom.

It's quite rare to see Salma's daughter on the celebrity circuit. The last time we saw her out and about was at this year's Milan Fashion Week, where she joined her famous mom in attending the Bottega Veneta fashion show. With shorter hair and a velvet maroon mini dress, she looked super pretty and showed that style and elegance run in the family.

Valentina, who is a big fan of Ariana Grande and Riverdale actor Cole Sprouse, is aware of the privilege she has compared to other young girls her age. As her mom explained in an exclusive to HOLA! USA, Salma's aim is clear: "What I need to do is make sure...that she learns to appreciate the little things in life." And she has kept her promise. Apart from attending charity events with mom, in 2017, the 12-year-old traveled to South Africa with Salma and her half-sister from her father’s first marriage, Mathilde, to participate in World Aids Day on behalf of the organization, Mothers2Mothers. Not only is she a pretty face, but Valentina is also a committed, clever young girl that surely, like mom and dad, will do great things in the future.
