Shia LaBeouf had a delightful Christmas Eve outing with his 1-year-old daughter Isabel at Universal Studios Hollywood. Media outlets shared photos and videos on December 28, capturing the 37-year-old Transformers star carrying his toddler in a baby carrier on his back, dressed in a coat for their park adventure. The joyful pair ran around a large Christmas tree, and Shia even posed for a photo with the Grinch during a meet-and-greet. While Isabel’s face was blurred in the images, she seemed to be sporting an all-pink ensemble for this special daddy-daughter day out.
While enjoying the park, Shia also seemed to take a moment to greet fans. In every photo, as seen [SEE HERE via TMZ], he appeared exceptionally happy to be spending quality time with Isabel. Notably absent in the pictures was his partner (and Isabel’s mom), 30-year-old Mia Goth.
Mia and Shia’s relationship has been intricate — they appeared to have a Las Vegas wedding in 2016, though subsequent assertions contested the legal validity of their marriage. Shia later affirmed their marital status during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. They separated and initiated divorce proceedings in 2018 but seemingly reconciled, as reports surfaced of them reuniting in February 2022, with Mia anticipating their first child.
During that period, he was romantically involved with FKA Twigs, who accused him of abuse in 2020. Addressing the allegations in an interview on the Real Ones podcast with Jon Bernthal, he remarked, “You can’t make amends for permanent damage like that. So now, my daughter has become this opportunity for me to be a stand-up guy.”
He elaborated on the rekindled connection with the mother of his child in an email to Olivia Wilde, published by Variety in August 2022. “I have a little girl, Isabel; she is five months old and just starting to develop the last half of her laugh; it’s AMAZING,” he wrote. “Mia, my wife, and I have found each other again and are journeying toward a healthy family with love and mutual respect.”
