Southern California native Bryana, who is signed to Wilhelmina Models, seems intentional about what she posts — preferring to keep it mostly work-based — but a beautiful post she shared on Jan. 1 gives a very sweet and telling glimpse at who she is.

In a throwback photo of a worksheet she filled out as a child, she answered the question "If I were granted three wishes, I'd wish for ..." with this answer: "Eternal happiness for my family."

Does Nicholas Hoult have kids?

Nicholas and Bryana share a son named Joaquin together. Joaquin was born in 2018, and while not much is known about the youngster, you can see some pics of him (with his face blocked) on his proud mama's Instagram page now and then.

"Some of the things I consider the most meaningful and precious parts of my life I have refrained from posting on social media. I’ve felt uncomfortable with the idea of sharing to millions of complete strangers and letting it exist who knows where on the web forever," she wrote alongside a throwback pic of her pregnant.

She continued: "I see so many parents posting relatable, sweet, funny, and inspiring content — mothers who share their beautiful families, stories, and day-to-day lives. I believe every parent knows what’s best for themselves and their family. It is everyone’s own choice what they are happy and comfortable sharing. Thank you for respecting mine."

She went on to thank the "village" of family and friends who have been their support system and concluded with: "Being a mom is truly the most magical and greatest love I’ve ever experienced. To all the mothers out there, I have so much love and appreciation for you."

As for Nicholas, he opened up about fatherhood in 2020 on The Late Late Show.

"I'm loving it," he said about fatherhood. "It's mad. It's a learning curve, isn't it? There's a lot to take in. But overall, it's like that time again, it brings back a lot of memories of your childhood. It makes you play again — which I'm really enjoying, particularly with this time now with everything shut down and not having to work I'm kind of just playing trains all day. Yeah, it's great."

Who are Nicholas Hoult's exes?

Before Bryana, Nicholas's most publicized relationship was with Jennifer Lawrence. The two met on the set of X-Men: First Class in 2010 and began dating.
