When Harper leaves home, her parents will officially be empty nesters, which will no doubt be emotional and bittersweet for the couple.

The family waved their firstborn Elliott off to college last year, and Ali at the time admitted that it had been "brutal".

However, the proud mom also revealed on her Go Ask Ali podcast that her teenager was "thriving" there. It wasn't a smooth journey for Elliott either, as she tested positive for Covid just before she was supposed to go to campus.

Ali previously gave an insight into their family dynamics during an interview in 2016. Chatting to Harry Connick Jr, she said: "I have two girls. George is the only guy in the house. For some reason, he gets beat up constantly. He is always wrong. He is an idiot. He is a loser, but in a loving way."

Talking to Shondaland, she said: "For my own teenagers, I'd say the wrench is the uncertainty of everything. There's no routine. I can't soothe by saying, 'Well, this will be over soon.'"
