Julia Roberts and Daniel Moder's three children are named Laxmi (Hazel), Ganesh (Phinnaeus), and Krishna Balram (Henry).


Hazel Patricia Moder and Phinnaeus "Finn" Walter Moder, two fraternal twins, and Henry Daniel Moder, another son, are also shared by the couple. With the exception of the sporadic appearances on their father's Instagram feed, the Moder children lead fairly private lives in contrast to the other famous Roberts, such as Julia's niece and "Unfabulous" star Emma Roberts.


Additionally, until recently, her young children were unaware of how well-known their mother was because she kept them out of the spotlight. Roberts revealed to Oprah Winfrey in a 2018 Harper's Bazaar interview that her children once asked if she was more famous than Taylor Swift as a benchmark for her stardom.


"I don’t think they will ever have a true sense of [my fame]," said Roberts. "When they were starting to figure it out, it was like, ‘You're famous?’ And I said, ‘I think a lot of people might have seen the movie that I’m in or might know who I am.’"


How did Julia Roberts and Daniel Moder meet?


With her popular rom-coms from the 1990s, Julia Roberts rose to fame as one of Hollywood's biggest stars. However, in her personal life, the actress experienced a different kind of meet-cute. On the set of her film “The Mexican” in 2000, she met cinematographer Danny Moder, and the two quickly fell in love.


After splitting from their previous relationships, the two married in a private ceremony in 2002. However, since that time, Roberts and Moder have welcomed three children into their family, all of whom they have miraculously managed to keep out of the spotlight.

Why did Julia Roberts rename her children?


Roberts, a converted Hindu devotee, paid a visit to an ashram in India in 2009 while "Eat. Pray. Love" was being filmed. Her children were given new names modelled after Hindu deities while she was there by Swami Daram Dev of Ashram Hari Mandir in Pataudi, who said, "Julia came to seek my blessings, and I told her to learn good things about Indian culture." "I said that your children should have new names."


All three children received new names from the Swami: Henry received Krishna Balram, Phinnaeus received Ganesh, and Hazel received Laxmi. Roberts vowed to refer to her kids by their Hindu names, and up until their relocation from Southern California, the family regularly visited a Hindu temple in Los Angeles.


Why did Julia Roberts move to San Francisco?


According to Closer Weekly, Roberts and her husband moved from Malibu, California, to an $8.3 million estate in San Francisco's Presidio Heights district in 2020. But they didn't purchase the five-bedroom, four and a half bathroom mansion built around 1907 because it has a view of the Golden Gate Bridge.


The fact that Julia Roberts and Daniel Moder are particular about safeguarding their kids' privacy and assisting them in leading as normal a life as they can despite their mother's fame was the primary reason behind their relocation.

According to a close family friend, "[Roberts] loves Malibu, but she wanted her children, who are growing up so fast, to have the experience of a city with a different energy and vibe." The source went on to say, "Her kids are not movie star kids in San Francisco, where no one cares who your mom is." The insider also disclosed that, despite Daniel Moder enjoying their beachside lifestyle, he has grown weary of Hollywood.


What are Finn and Hazel Moder doing now?


Despite not being "lucky enough to have a college experience," Julia Roberts admitted to Extra that she was thrilled to send her twins off to school. According to a source who spoke to Closer Weekly, Hazel and Finn began taking classes at the University of California, Berkeley, in the fall of 2022.


The insider claims that one of the twins (which one wasn't told) is studying fine arts while the other is majoring in computer and information sciences. The insider claims that now that the twins are in college, Roberts can concentrate more on her career and the roles she is most interested in. "Acting is her profession, and she'll do it for as long as she can," explained the source.
