Maggie Gyllenhaal, 43, spends quality time with daughter Ramona, 14, as they enjoy French food in NYC
Maggie Gyllenhaal seemed to dip into her summer wardrobe as temperatures in NYC continue to heat up.
The 43-year-old actress, producer, and director donned an oversized straw hat and a lightweight frock as she grabbed lunch at La Mercerie with her daughter Ramona Sarsgaard, 14.
The two enjoyed a mommy-daughter outing as they were seen laughing and chatting over French food before strolling arm and arm in SoHo.

The Crazy Heart Oscar nominee looked super feminine in the city’s signature shade as she wore a ruffled linen dress with a pair of checkered slides.
She played up the monochromatic ensemble with a rather large black hat and continued to shield her face with oversized sunglasses.
Her eldest daughter looked a spitting image of dad Peter Sarsgaard, 50, as she strolled with her mom in a playful polka dot dress and simple sandals.
Ramona’s light brown hair was pulled into a high ponytail and she looked to carry the same sunglasses as her mom.

Maggie has been married to the An Education actor since 2009 and they also share daughter Gloria, nine.
In 2019 the sister of Jake Gyllenhaal spoke to Pop Sugar about juggling work and motherhood, saying that although ‘organization’ is key, it’s ‘impossible’ to get the ‘perfect’ balance.
‘Honestly, I think juggling a career and raising kids is all about organizing . . . But without organization I couldn’t manage any of this! It’s impossible to strike the “perfect work/life balance,” and I think every parent knows that. It’s a struggle finding that balance in the day-to-day of motherhood, but that’s how you learn.’
Maggie is set to make her directorial debut with The Lost Daughter, starring Normal People’s Paul Mescal, Dakota Johnson, Olivia Coleman and her husband Peter. The film — based on the Elena Ferrante book of the same name — is slated for release in January 27.
