David Schwimmer's daughter is only nine, but she's already proving to be a force of nature.

Cleo, who Schwimmer shares with his ex-wife Zoe Buckman, had the ultimate "quarantine cut", asking her mum to shave off her long hair over the weekend.

Her mum shared photos to her Instagram, alongside a heartfelt caption.

"The world is saying 'bun it down and rebuild' and the babies are listening," the caption read.

"I see how kids today challenge norms and standards in a way that we didn't, and that, amongst other things, gives me hope! One ❤️x" she wrote.

Followers were quick to comment on Cleo's new look, saying how amazing she looked.

"Mannnn THIS KID! She is AMAZING." One user wrote. "She also has a kick a-- mum supporting her! F--- yeah the Buckmans!"

"Baby Rockstar," added one user. "So clearly knows who she is! Must feel amazing," wrote another user.


Schwimmer and Buckman separated in 2017 after seven years of marriage, both remaining in New York after the separation to co-parent their daughter. The two remain friends, even attending a Black Lives Matter protest together recently in New York which they both posted to their Instagrams.

Schwimmer posted a detailed caption to accompany the picture, part of it talking about parenting with his ex-wife and setting a good example for Cleo.

"We're no longer a couple, but @zoebuckman and I are parents of a nine year old, and fellow advocates for social justice and reform," the caption read, "we marched in honour of the countless black lives lost to racial violence."

Buckman also posted the photo, saying "No justice: no peace. (It was painful powerful beautiful. Everyone wore a mask. I love you NYC.)". She continued saying, "these are our streets. Keep showing up. It's happening. Black Lives Matter. With my comrade and co-parent @_schwim_".
