In the post's caption, Jane advised her followers to hug their kids while they can, no matter how tall they were, jokingly referencing her son's height. 

On October last year, Jane also shared a photo of her youngest child and daughter, who posed with her best friend, with both girls holding glasses of apple ciders, and in the caption, the actress counted her many blessings, writing:

"My happy girl & her bestie are away at college now, my eldest just got her new teaching degree, my son and his wife are also thriving. It's count your blessings day!"


Ruby Fink, the oldest daughter of Jane Sibbett, also made a post on last year's National Siblings Day, where she shared a throwback photo of herself and her younger siblings. 

In the caption, Ruby jokingly recalled the days when she was taller than her siblings. She concluded by saying that she loved them and was proud of how much they had grown within a short time.
