Kate and Chris took a walk in NYC with their long-haired son Ryder. We never really understood why they had never cut Ryder's hair. We just assumed it was either a rocker thing (like daddy) or a hippy thing but it was neither. Kate actually explained it when she was on The View last week,She said:

"I'm part-Jewish, Hasidic Jews - they don't cut their kids hair until they're three. "I'm not very religious, but it's actually kind of beautiful, they compare the men to a tree and trees don't bear fruit for three years. "So I just figured maybe on his third birthday I'll cut it. I'm going to cry my eyes out!"
