For the second shot, the Good Morning America star snapped a selfie of the group as they traveled in a car alongside their pet dog.
Deborah captioned the post: “And that’s it. Our #summer visit with our baby girl has come to an end. But first a stop @lavenueatsaks before the airport and her departure.
“Missing @cleilapatra already. Even as adults… still hard to let go and hug goodbye. Anyone else know the feeling? #family.”
Leila was born on November 17, 1998, in New York.
After graduation, she took a job overseas that allowed her to continue living in France.
The same year Leila graduated from the American University of Paris, the journalist shared photos of her father and mother visiting her in Paris.
One photo showed the trio enjoying dinner at a restaurant in front of the Eiffel Tower.
Leila returned to the United States this month to join her brother’s birthday celebrations, and met her baby niece for the first time.
