On Monday night, Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon celebrated their daughter Sosie's upcoming 21st birthday at PH-D, the rooftop lounge at the Dream Downtown Hotel in New York.
Sedgwick arrived early at 6:30 p.m. and less than an hour later was joined by Bacon, Sosie and a few friends, a source tells PEOPLE.
"Kyra was in an extremely happy mood, as was Kevin," the source adds. "At one point, Kevin stood and made a toast and specifically pointed out that he was glad to know his family could come together and celebrate despite their hectic schedules."

He plays a former FBI agent on the trail of a serial killer in his new series The Following, but in real life Kevin Bacon has more pressing cases to solve – like the mysterious origins of his beloved dogs Lilly and Rocky.
The actor, 54, was so curious about the breeds of the rescue dogs he shares with his wife, actress Kyra Sedgwick, and their two children that he set up his very own doggy DNA lab with a kit he purchased online.
"We did DNA testing, which is fun and something that just became possible," he tells PEOPLE. "What you do is swab the cheek of a mutt and you send it in. What comes back is what breeds are in the animal, which is really cool."

After the startling revelation that husband and wife Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick are distantly related as cousins, comes a brand new detail about what they share – again, courtesy of the show on genealogy, PBS's Finding Your Roots.
According to a network statement about this Sunday's episode tracing the actors' roots, "Bacon's Quaker ancestors repudiated slavery long before the rest of the country, in 1780."
And guess what? The Sedgwicks weren't long to follow in the crusade.

The stars headed up to the Top of the Standard to celebrate the upcoming premiere of Girls, HBO's racy new comedy about four twentysomething women finding their way in New York City. And it was a glamorous cocktail party that was a far cry from the sometimes challenging Brooklyn living depicted on the witty new show.
With plates of charcuterie and cheese on reserved tables, guests such as Claire Danes, Chloe Sevigny, Gabourey Sidibe, former Real Housewives of N.Y.C. star Kelly Bensimon and the show's producer Judd Apatow fanned out around the circular room, mingling in the intimate space and taking in the panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline.
Danes shared a moment with the show's stars Jemima Kirke and Zosia Mamet while Lena Dunham, the new show's writer, director and lead actress, hung out at her private table, chatting with Apatow and greeting well-wishers such as John Cameron Mitchell with a friendly handshake. At one point, Dunham headed to Le Bain, just across the hall from the main party space, where she chatted with Boardwalk Empire's Steve Buscemi, who was enjoying a plate of food from the nearby buffet.

Who hasn't played Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon – that game in which it appears everyone has a link to the handsome actor?
But Bacon's own wife of 23 years (and mother of their two children, son Travis, 22 and daughter Sosie, 19), Kyra Sedgwick, has more of a link to her husband than she or anyone else might have imagined. They are distant cousins.
The revelation comes courtesy of the Sunday night PBS show on genealogy, Finding Your Roots.

Despite the many gorgeous celebrities flocking last night's Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet, Kyra Sedgwick stood out thanks to a bold new accessory.
Clad in a fire engine red Emilio Pucci column, The Closer star (and best drama actress nominee) explained the significance of the linear design resting just north of her exposed ribcage.
"It's a family tattoo," she told E! "It's all our initials K, K, S and T."
The actress was, of course, referring to husband of 23-years, Kevin Bacon, their son Travis, 22 and daughter Sosie, 19.

Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick are mourning a beloved pal. Their Lab mix Paulie, whom they adopted from a vet in 1999, died recently, Bacon announced Monday.
"Paulie 1999-2012. Sleep well old friend," the actor wrote on his WhoSay page next to a photo of Paulie.
The senior dog had been dealing with health issues in recent months. In November, Bacon posted a photo on WhoSay of Paulie sporting a bandage on his leg as he laid on the floor.
