However, fans were surprised at the resemblance the couple has with their grown-up kids, Sophie and Nicolas.

The Kodjoe-Parker family has been getting into the spirit of the holidays by giving to the less fortunate.

They recently attended the Holiday Event at the Westside German Shepherd Rescue, a non-profit organization that rescues dogs from high kill shelters and re-home them.

GLOWING WITH JOY

Nicole and Boris glowed with happiness as they posed with their kids, daughter Sophie, 13 and son Nicolas, 12.

Their German shepherd dog, Max, was also in attendance. The entire group posed together for pics but Nicole revealed that it was hard to have them all looking at the camera at the same time.

However, a professional photographer managed to capture the perfect family shot, with Nicole kneeling next to Max and everyone sporting a massive smile on their faces.

Boris and Nicolas looked casual wearing matching black jackets, while Sophie wore a fluffy pink coat, and her mother a silver padded jacket.

Ari Parker captioned one of her posts from the occasion:

“When you, your dog, your husband and your kids can't get it together for the picture.... #Maxkeepsitallthewayreal #NoSnacksNoStay Thank you @MariaMenounos for having us and for all the great work you do for #resucedogs #afterthefire.”

Fans had nothing but positive comments and compliments for the family in the comment section.

“Whole family good looking even the dog,” wrote one user, and another added, “There it is...the beautiful Kodjoes!!! My favorite family!! #ILovethekodjoes.”

MORE CHARITIES

But the family didn’t end their string of charity there. The next day, they attended the Annual Holiday Celebration hosted by Brooks Brothers to support the St. Jude Medical Center

This time the group went without Max to the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

Book Brothers’ partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital celebrated 14 years this holiday season.

They have raised more than $18.5 million that has been used to “conduct breakthrough research, provide world-class treatment and give hope to children everywhere.”

At St. Jude, families that have kids with cancer are welcomed to receive all the help they need without getting a bill in return.

The hospital runs with the belief that parents should be focused on improving the health of their children without worrying about costs. That’s why donations are so significant for the organization.

SOPHIE’S CONDITION

Boris and Nicole understand what its like to be worried about a child’s health since their daughter Nicole was diagnosed with spina bifida at birth.

It's a congenital condition that occurs when the spine and spinal cord don't form properly. In Sophie’s case, she was diagnosed with the most severe form of the condition.

She went under surgery to detach her spinal cord from a fat mass called a lipoma, but other complications came along the way, such as a neurogenic bladder that forced Nicole and Boris to start catheterizing their daughter when she was 2-year-old.

They opened the Sophie’s Voice Foundation to help raise awareness about the condition and funds to keep research about it going on.

“God doesn’t give you anything you can’t handle. And I’m not going to lie: At first, it’s a shock. You want to cry,” Boris told People a few years ago. “But especially by looking at Sophie, you get over it quickly. [Fame] is not just a privilege, I think it’s a responsibility.”

“We are here to lend people a voice who don’t have a voice. We’ve committed to that, and we’re going to do whatever we can to give this a huge voice and hopefully change it,” he concluded.
