In the post, she revealed some details about Colette's upbringing and went on to gush over how amazing her daughter is. Her heartfelt message read, in part:

"You grew up in the back of old, musty theaters, or on film sets with bands of gypsy actors and film crews. Later you came to retreats and gatherings in forests and on mountain tops. Always an adventure of some sort . . . You had an unconventional childhood, but I hope that instilled in you a vision that anything is possible."

The proud mom went on to say how having Colette made her "a better human being" and that her talented daughter's "creativity, intelligence, loyalty, and heart continue to inspire" her.

Colette's father is just as proud of his eldest daughter. During a 2020 interview, Dylan said:

"My eldest, Colette, is 23; beautiful, chic, and sophisticated. I often eavesdrop on her conversations and secretly pine for her popularity. Truthfully, she's everything I ever wanted to be, but I just don't have her social skills."

Colette's mother, Shiva Rose, was born on February 8, 1969, in Santa Monica, California. Her birth name is Shiva Rose Gharib-Afshar. She's also in show business and started acting onstage at 15. Shiva became famous after appearing in the critically-acclaimed film "David and Layla," which earned her the Best Breakthrough Actress Award at the Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival.

The mom-of-two is multi-talented. She also does production and was an executive producer for the feature film "Relative Insanity." The 52-year-old has ventured into other businesses over the years. She's also a blogger and activist and has her own brand of natural beauty products.

Dylan revealed how he and Shiva met. According to the actor, they met at a coffee shop in California in 1993. It wasn't long before the two decided to take their relationship to the next level. The pair went on to tie the knot in late 1995. Sadly, the couple divorced in 2009, after being married for nearly 12 years.

The divorce was reportedly hard on Dylan, and the "Steel Magnolias" star took some time to get over his heartbreak. In 2018, the "American Horror Story" actor opened up about the split and confessed, "I really struggled."
