Meg Ryan is very proud of the people her kids are becoming.

Appearing on the cover of the December 2023 issue of Glamour, Ryan, 62, opens up about her new film What Happens Later, which she also co-wrote, sharing that she made the decision to add in some personal touches when it came to her character, Willa.

One of those decisions was to add an adoption story to Willa's background, a subject close to Ryan's heart. In 2006, she adopted daughter Daisy, now 18, from China when she was just 2 years old.

"I put that in there because my daughter is my daughter," she told the outlet. "I’m convinced of magic because of our relationship. We were destined."

The proud mom also raved about Daisy tackling her first year of college, where she is pushing herself to succeed and also enjoying her hobbies, which include design, sewing and tailoring. Ryan has even let her daughter tackle some pieces from her own closet.

"I’m just so happy to know them, to be their mom," the actress says.

In addition to Daisy, Ryan is also mom to actor Jack Quaid, 31, whom she shares with ex Dennis Quaid.

“My kids have always been a blast. They’re the best hang,” she says. “They’re so alive in their curiosity and interest in the world.”

"I have two of the greatest kids," she said. "They are hilarious, they're smart, they are kind, they're interested in other people, they're curious about the world. I feel like both of them make the world a little better, and I just feel so proud of them."
