Nicole Kidman reportedly enjoyed an "emotional" reunion with her daughter Isabella in London.
The Oscar-winning actress (49) has two children Bella (23) and Connor (21) with ex-husband Tom Cruise (54), whom she split with in 2001.
Rumours of a rift between the Australian star and her children have long dogged the family, which resurfaced when the she wed in September 2015 and reportedly didn't invite either of her famous parents.
Bella famously wed IT consultant Max Parker in London, where they are now based, with only her brother at the ceremony, but the mother and daughter are said to have put their differences aside in a "spontaneous" catch-up.
"It was a very emotional moment for all of them, especially Nicole. It didn’t take long for her to burst into tears, and Bella soon followed," a source told Woman's Day.
"Nic has been trying to build bridges with Bella since the start of the year. Nicole took an instant liking to Max and could see that he and Bella get on really well."

Bella and her brother went to live with their father following the couple's divorce and both are practicing Scientologists.
At the time of her nuptials, the New York Post reported that Nicole "didn't know" about the ceremony as it was a Scientologist service.
Mission: Impossible actor Tom has been dogged by similar rumours about his relationship with daughter Suri (10) with ex-wife Katie Holmes. The couple split in 2012 and the former Dawson's Creek star left Scientology with their daughter.
But Bella has always denied reports of a rift, saying: "Of course we talk, they’re my parents."
