Dakota Tao Brooks-Woodside was born to actors Golden Brooks and D.B. Woodside on September 1, 2009, giving the Hollywood stars their first taste of parenthood. According to her parents, the teenager has grown to be a "curious, strong, funny, (and) courageous being."

It's been over a decade since Golden confirmed her pregnancy at a red carpet event. In honor of her daughter's 14th birthday this year, the actress took to Instagram to celebrate the occasion with a photo dump of Dakota.

"Your growth, your strength as a budding young lady just has me in awe! You have soldiered through life's curveballs and you are owning your voice," Golden captioned the post in part. Dakota's father also celebrated his daughter's birthday in 2020 and shared:

"Dakota, you have blessed Mommy & Daddy with your kindness, your intelligence, and your curious nature for the past 11 years! We are so proud of you! I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Your birth saved my life. And your life continues to be my guiding light, my salvation, my North Star."
