From Olivia Newton-John and Tom Selleck’s daughters to Michael J. Fox, and Jean-Claude Van Damme’s kids. Here’s the complete list of ALL the most intriguing and secret celebrity kids all grown up.
The media talks about celebrities every single day. But what isn’t talked about as often (and probably for good reason) are the children of these rich, talented and famous people, who are sometimes even more stunning than their talented parents. A large fraction of these celebrity children is also trying to follow in their parents’ footsteps. From breaking into high fashion to signing record deals, many of these talented offspring are making a name for themselves.
Many Hollywood moms and dads have tried to keep their children away from the spotlight, and rightfully so, especially during their childhood years. Growing up in a family that is constantly bombarded the press and tugged at by adoring fans can have either a negative or positive affect on a young psyche. Before they turn the age of 18, it’s important for these celebrity children to learn how to manage their own time and patience, as well as the paparazzi.
They’re eventually going to become stars in their own right and while some of them have managed to do so already, they’ve done it without the help of their family names. Some of these celebrity children are shockers, in regards to who their parents are, as well as their grandparents (can you say dynasty?). We bet you’re probably wondering how much these kids are worth now, especially combined with the wealth of their famous, rich parents!
We have compiled a list of A-list children who are not only VERY good looking but are showing their own budding talents and ambition for the limelight. From Hannah Selleck to Brittany Favre, these are the most promising heirs to the throne Hollywood has to offer.
Jane Carrey is the lucky daughter of the hilarious and adorable, Jim Carrey. 29-year-old Jane was raised outside of the spotlight as her parents wanted her to have a normal childhood (and they also divorced back in 1995 so it made it easier to remain quiet). She has her own talents, though, she has one incredible voice! Jane, who has her dad’s killer smile, was on the early stages of American Idol. Although Jane didn’t make it far on the show, she still managed to win over some hearts.
With a last name like Sutherland, you are bound to land any gig you would want in Hollywood. The youngest Sutherland, 29-year-old Sarah, is an actress as well (are you actually surprised?). Sarah got her first acting role in 2012 on a show called Veep and is still a regular, where she plays the VP’s daughter. Sarah has also appeared in an episode of The Newsroom.
Destry Allyn Spielberg
Her dad is the award-winning director, Steven Spielberg, and her mom is actress Kate Capshaw. You would think Destry would go into the family business of acting, but she has decided to take a departure from the industry altogether. Destry actually just landed her first modeling contract with DT Model Management. The tall and leggy blonde is now 19 years old and it seems as if her career is getting revved up for some major breakthroughs.
Frances Bean Cobain
The only daughter of the late grunge Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and equally rocker mom Courtney Love, Frances Bean Cobain is practically rock royalty. Frances herself is very artistic as well. She has modeled for several campaigns and has even debuted an art collection under the pseudonym Fiddle Tim. She went on to intern at Rolling Stone magazine and word on the street is that she turned down the role of Alice, in Alice in Wonderland.
When she was just a little girl, Sydney’s famous father, O.J Simpson, stood trial for the alleged and very brutal murder of her mother, Nicole Brown Simpson. It was the trial that shook the entire country and was probably one of the most controversial cases in U.S history. It’s been 23 years since then, and these days, Sydney is all grown up and at 31 years old she has managed to build a decent life for herself. She graduated with a BA in Sociology from Boston University and has been working in the real estate industry and owns several properties.
Sofia has just been thrust into the limelight thanks to her (now over) relationship with teen heartthrob Justin Bieber. The 18-year-old is the daughter of crooner Lionel Richie, and sister of the equally known Nicole Richie. Sofia has started modeling recently, grabbing her more attention (in addition to her relationship woes). She is as gorgeous as her parents and as talented to boot.
Ava is so much like her mother when it comes to her looks that we often have to do a double take to make sure we have the right person. Ava is the mini-me of Reese Witherspoon and ex-husband Ryan Philippe (her dad not being too shabby himself). Ava is now 17 years old and looking towards her college years. She is very adamant on being her own person, separate from her famous parents. All of this makes us adore this young one even more!
Hailie is the beloved daughter of rapper Eminem (also known as Marshall Mathers). Her full name is Hailie Jade Scott Mathers. Most of us know her name from her dad’s songs, specifically, Hailie’s Song. She grew up outside of the limelight, as per her dad’s request. Hailie has athletic and academic skills, being a member of her high school volleyball team, the National Honor Society, and the Student Council. Atta girl!
Lily Rose Depp
Lily Rose is the beautiful daughter of French actress Vanessa Paradis, and bad boy rocker and actor Johnny Depp. Lily Rose, at the age of 17, has already left her mark on Hollywood. Her modeling debut was for the powerhouse designer Chanel (a fabulous way to start a modeling career), and has had some small roles in independent films. She is also an advocate for gender fluidity in society, which she considers herself on the spectrum of.
When your mother is supermodel Christy Brinkley, you know you are most likely going to come out looking pretty amazing. Sailor Cook did not disappoint. The college freshman is her mom’s mini-me, living in New York City, where Sailor is attending The New School’s Parsons School of Design. Although Sailor looks like mom, she doesn’t like being compared to her, in any way; so we better be careful.
Lily Jane Collins is the drop dead gorgeous daughter of musician Phil Collins and ex-wife Jill Tavelman. Lily has managed to make quite a name for herself already as both an actress and a model. Most recently, Lily has been the face of Lancome. Lily has kept very busy with her acting, starring in films like The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Mirror Mirror, Abduction, The Blind Side, and independent film, Stuck in Love.
Greer is the daughter of Frasier star, Kelsey Grammer, and his then-wife Barrie Buckner. The 24-year-old has a knack for comedy, with roles in shows such as Nickelodeon’s iCarly, MTV’s Awkward, Melissa & Joey, The Middle, and reality show Cupcake Wars. She has also been in several films between the years 2010 and 2016. We can only imagine how this lovely funny girl will grow in comedic timing and beauty.
Well, obviously you’re going to be drop dead gorgeous if your mom is Andie MacDowell! Rainey also following in her mother’s footsteps, by acting, in films like Mighty Fine (alongside her mom), Falcon Song, and even a cameo on Mad Men. She was also Miss Golden Globe in 2012, which was pretty traumatizing as she would later say. These days Rainey is focused on her singing career, splitting her time between Los Angeles and Nashville. Her style, as she says, is ‘bluesy country’.
Bianca Bree is the stunning daughter of Jean-Claude Van Damme. Bianca is an actress and producer in her own right, with acting credits that include Alien Uprising, Welcome to the Jungle, Enter the Fist and the Golden Fleece, and Paranormal Activity Security Squad. Bianca has taken after her father’s love of martial arts and can be seen kicking some serious behind. Her mother is former fitness competitor Gladys Portugues, which also adds to this lovely ladies impressive genes.
Ella Bleu Travolta
Ella Bleu Travolta is the second child of world renowned actor John Travolta. Despite being just a teen, she has already made quite a name for herself, having played a role in the movie Old Dogs, where she acted alongside her father as well as Robin Williams. The Travoltas recently appeared on the Ellen show, where Ellen asked Ella all about her dating life. Luckily, Ella’s dad stepped in and saved her from having to answer the question.
The last name alone is a dead giveaway, add to that an impressive, shall we say, physical appearance, and you have yourself a win-win situation. Scott Eastwood is the fourth child of legendary director and actor Clint Eastwood. He himself caught the acting bug. You can see Scott in films like The Longest Ride, Suicide Squad, and Mercury Plains. His last name may have opened some doors for him but he has earned himself the right to have his name hold on its own.
Louis Bardo Bullock
You’d think being Sandra Bullock’s son would come with constant paparazzi and media coverage, but that’s not the case. Bullock may be a household name, but she doesn’t want her adoptive children growing up in the spotlight. She’s adamant about protecting little Louis and her daughter Laila to keep their private lives private. This snazzy eight year-old is unaware of what his mom does for work. He didn’t even know she starred in Minions. We wonder how he’ll react when he finds out he’s got pretty much the coolest mom ever.
We all know Miley, and it’s her dad at this point that is becoming a more background figure. However, there are those who don’t know that Miley is the beautiful daughter of country crooner Billy Ray Cyrus. Miley takes after her mother when it comes to her features, but takes after dad’s love of music. Her godmother is the incomparable Dolly Parton, so we know her country influence is from there. Miley is very much into her music these days, but she has spent some time in front of the camera as well.
James Caan is the man responsible for this great guy. Scott is the son of James and Sheila Ryan (James’ second of four wives). Scott is pretty well known himself, with long-running roles in Hawaii Five-O, and Entourage. He also made appearances on NCIS and has a long list of film roles to his name; like every last one of the Ocean’s films. Impressive when you think of the fact that his father played in The Godfather.
There is something about the Hadid family that produces really gorgeous children. Former model Yolanda Foster and then-husband Mohamad Hadid sure did something right when having Gigi, sister Bella, and brother Anwar. Gigi – who’s real name is Jelena Noura Hadid – is now busy being a Victoria’s Secret runway model, as well as the runways for Versace, Chanel, Elie Saab, Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Anna Sui, Miu Miu, Balmain, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Tommy Hilfiger. So she’s basically everywhere.
Today, Paulina Gretzky is well-known for her social media presence and modeling career. However, it all started with being the daughter of NHL legend Wayne Gretzky. Wayne was nicknamed ‘the great one’ after a spectacular career in hockey spanning twenty years. Paulina was relatively unknown until after high school, at which time she started modeling and singing. She appeared in a small role in the film Grown Ups 2 and was named in the top 100 most desirable women in the world by AskMen, a digital magazine.
Maya is the eldest offspring of Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman. Now with parents like that, it’s no surprise that she is not only beautiful and tall, but she is also extremely talented. Maya started her first year at Juilliard, the top pick for those wanting to study performing arts. The 18-year-old is also a model, specifically, she landed her first modeling job in the AllSaints’ spring/summer 2017 collection. We expect great things from this one.
You’ll recognize Domhnall from films like Harry Potter, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Ex Machina, The Revenant, and About Time, among his long list of credits. He played alongside his father Brandon Gleeson in Harry Potter (Brandon played Alastor “Mad-Eye” Moody, while Domhnall played Bill Weasley). Along with acting, Gleeson is a writer. He is also considered, and we would agree, to be one of the best looking redheads ever.
Allison is also one celebrity child who has made a name for herself, with her father being the former NBC Nightly News anchor, Brian Williams. You might have seen Allison on the smash hit show Girls, alongside Lena Dunham. Not only an actress, Allison is a smart cookie too; she graduated from Yale University in 2010. Allison has been married to Ricky Van Veen since September of 2015. Little known fact: Tom Hanks officiated over the ceremony!
Max comes from a very interesting and well-known family. Most notably he is the son of THE Jeremy Irons (The Lion King, The Man in the Iron Mask). Max himself has pursued acting and is doing quite well if we do say so ourselves. You may have seen him in films like The Host, Woman In Gold, The Runaways, and Dorian Gray. On the personal end, Max has been dating Vogue assistant editor Sophie Pera for the past three years.
Chester, preferred to be called, Chet Haze, is the lesser known son of Tom Hanks. Everyone knows Colin Hanks (currently on the show Life In Pieces and his unforgettable role as Gus Grimly, the policeman in Fargo), but Chet is a little more unique. He is an aspiring rapper, yes, rapper, who has gotten himself in a bit of hot water recently; be that as it may, Chet has gotten some artistic talent from his two super successful parents and has managed to model, act and sing.
Rafferty is the son of Sadie Frost and Jude Law. He got his father’s devilish good looks and is using them well as a runway model for several brands, not to mention his modeling gigs for brands like ASOS, DKNY, and British Vogue. He gets himself talked about on various English tabloid magazines for his escapades with beautiful young ladies; so we guess he got more than his father’s looks.
Patrick is the son of actor turned politician Arnold Schwarzenegger and former wife Maria Shriver. Patrick is today first and foremost a businessman. He graduated from USC in 2016 with a business degree, before which he helped his dad run Project360, a clothing line for men. These days he is also a model (not in the least bit surprising) and an actor. More than anything though, he has stated that he wants to make his family (remember, on his mom’s side he’s a Kennedy) proud of his philanthropic desires.
Ray is the spitting image of father – Jack Nicholson. Ray is Jack’s son from him marriage to Rebecca Broussard. Many say, and it is indeed the case – Ray got his dad’s famous grin (you know, the one that creeped us out as the Joker once?). Ray has worked his way up in Hollywood, not relying on his famous father’s name. He began as a production assistant on films, then onto assistant director, and only in 2016 into acting. Best of luck, Ray!
Again with this last name! Yet another child of Clint Eastwood on this list, the guy sure does make good looking children. Francesca got noticed after appearing on the E! reality show Mrs. Eastwood, and Company. The stunner can also be seen in films such as Final Girl, Kids vs Monsters, and Outlaws and Angels. This little one looks just like her mother Frances Fisher (who you would remember from Titanic, among plenty of other projects).
Don Johnson and Patti D’Arbanville are the proud parents of Jesse Johnson. He followed in his father’s footsteps and made his way into acting. He has appeared on both films and television, in roles in Killing Lincoln, Prey, Redline, Word of Honor and Nash Bridges. Most of his roles are not very big, but his role in Killing Lincoln, made in 2013 is considered to be his breakout role.
Zoe is basically a copied version of her mother Lisa Bonet. However, her father, Lenny Kravitz, is the famous one of her parents (these days at least). Zoe has her hands full with acting, music, and modeling. You can see her in films like the Divergent franchise, her music in her band Lolawolf, and her modeling Vera Wang and Elle magazine. She is also the step-daughter of Game of Thrones star, Jason Momoa, who married her mom in 2007.
Brooklyn is the eldest son of Victoria and David Beckham, also known as fashion and sports royalty. The 17-year-old has gotten quite the name for himself as his social media presence is very high and he is also part of the young Hollywood scene now. Brooklyn has been seen dating a young Hollywood starlets and remains undecided about his future plans. Whether he goes to university or decides to go into business with his famous parents, we’re sure Brooklyn is only at the beginning of his road.
Max Hoffman, son of Dustin Hoffman, has been in the acting game for a long time, right under our noses. The 32 year old Max started acting in 1991 when he played the young Peter Pan in the film Hook! He also had roles in films such as Meet the Fockers, Remember the Daze, television’s Ghost Whisperer, On Holiday, Ask Me Anything, and Asthma. We see acting runs in this family as well.
Rossif is the lesser known brother of Keifer Sutherland and son of the great Donald Sutherland. Rossif is content with his acting and directing positions, though the fact that you may not have heard of him does not negate the fact that Rossif had roles in films like Timeline and Dawn Before Dead. He has also made appearances on television shows such as ER, Monk, Flashpoint, and Haven.
Dylan is one of Pierce Brosnan’s sons, and from the looks of it, the young man of 19 is going to make one huge hit for himself. Dylan is a successful model these days, with campaigns with Burberry Spring/Summer 2016 and Saint Laurent Menswear. It’s amazing how a good jawline, long legs, and famous parents will be able to help you make it in the world.
Sosie is the daughter of two Hollywood heavyweights – Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick (who we are happy to report still happily married after more than 20 years of marriage!). Sosie is 24 years old these days and started acting when she was just 10 years old in the film Loverboy. She also had special appearances in her mother’s show The Closer, and several made for television movies. We’re still trying to figure out who she looks like more, but it’s a tie at this point.
Those piercing eyes, pronounced eyebrows, and slightly over the top demeanor, make Gabriel Day-Lewis a copy of his handsome father Daniel Day-Lewis. His father is an award winning actor, and Gabriel is well on his way to be another success story in his family. Gabriel and dad love to get tattoos, sometimes even together, and has made his fashion debut in the Chanel fashion show in Paris alongside actress Julianne Moore.
Hard to believe Will Smith had a life before he met Jada Pinkett, but he did. He had son Willard Carroll “Trey” Smith III with first wife, Sheree Zampino. Trey is a pretty well-known DJ, who performs under the name AcE. The 24-year-old has already released a few songs, one of which, Find You Somewhere, stars his younger siblings, Willow and Jaden. Well, when you’re a Smith, you just have to do something cool with your life, and Trey is no exception.
Max is a director of both film and television as well as a screenwriter. Not to mention he is the son of Henry Winkler and Stacey Furstman Weitzman. You may know his dad as The Fonz from the sitcom Happy Days which won him a ton of awards. 33-year-old Max took his dad’s on-screen artistic skills and implemented them behind the camera. Max has directed episodes of New Girl, The Grinder, Fresh Off The Boat, and The New Normal.
Sean is the REALLY handsome son of actor Michael Keaton. Michael is known for being one of the first Batmen, and, of course, Beetlejuice! Sean is a pretty amazing songwriter too, who has written tunes for Demi Lovato, Jason Derulo, and even Madonna. Sean, who is very low key about his family connections, is not only extremely talented but also super down to earth; making him beloved by all who meet him.
Wyatt comes from Hollywood stardust. He’s the son of Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, and brother to actress Kate Hudson. The 30-year-old is a former professional hockey player who has now turned his face towards acting (with a family like his, who could blame him). Wyatt has had roles in Arrested Development, Law and Order, and films like Cowboys & Aliens, This Is 40, and 22 Jump Street. He is due to have another two films coming out in 2017. It seems as though this is only the beginning for Wyatt.
Ethan is the grandson of Hollywood legend Gregory Peck. Gregory was one of the pioneers of Hollywood, starring in epic films like To Kill a Mockingbird and Moby Dick. Ethan, is also a budding actor, appearing in both film and television. Most notably, he’s had roles in films like Twelve, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, In Time, and The Curse of Sleeping Beauty. His tv credits include Gossip Girl and Madame Secretary.
Annie’s mom is the incomparable Glenn Close. At 28 years old, Annie is truly taking after her brilliant mother. Annie started acting in 2001 in films like South Pacific, Albert Nobbs (alongside her mother, who got an Academy Award nomination). Annie has not one, not two, but three movies coming out in 2017, making her one busy lady. Annie is playing once again with her mom, in the upcoming film, The Wife, where she plays, most appropriately, a young version of her.
Alexander is famous in his own right, but his father is practically a Hollywood legend. Alexander is the eldest son of Stellan Skarsgard. Alexander started acting at a young age in Sweden, only to stop after realizing he felt uncomfortable with the notoriety. He spent time in the Swedish military, followed by a six-month long English Literature course in England. It was after that that he realized that acting was truly what he wanted to do. These days we can see him on both tv and film. He has played in shows like True Blood, and films like The Legend of Tarzan.
Joseph is the 19-year-old son of actor and former governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Looking at Joseph, it’s hard to discredit any paternity issue, he looks just like him! Schwarzenegger had an affair with his housekeeper Mildred, that produced Joseph. These days Joseph is a sophomore at Pepperdine University, but is trying to to remain below the radar, as he was ‘discovered’ when he was 15 years old and has been hounded by the media ever since.
Bria is the stunning 27-year-old daughter of actor Eddie Murphy. Now Eddie has quite a few children these days – nine to be exact – but Bria is the eldest daughter and third out of nine children. Bria is a budding actress and artist; Earlier in 2016 Bria debut her art in an LA gallery, where her entire family was in attendance. Dad Eddie was gushing about how proud he was of his eldest daughter and the rest of his children, stating that there isn’t a bad one in the whole lot of them.
Eleanor is 23 years old and the daughter of actress Diane Lane and Christopher Lambert (Diane’s first husband). Eleanor, as you can see, takes after her mother’s beauty very much, so much so that she is signed with Wilhemina modeling agency in New York, and works as a model for them since 2016. Eleanor is also a music writer and does that for Village Voice, a publication out of New York as well.
When beauty is unquestionable and absolutely genetic! Elettra Wiedemann is the absolutely gorgeous 33-year-old daughter of THE Isabella Rossellini. Isabella was a model and actress for decades, and it seems as though her daughter is walking in her footsteps. The 5 foot 11 stunner is a model (obviously) as well as a food editor and writer. Her entire family is practically acting royalty, her maternal grandmother is none other than Ingrid Bergman!
John, who prefers to go by Johnny these days, is the 22-year-old son of actor Rob Lowe (we didn’t think Rob was old enough to have an adult son!) Anyway, Johnny is currently enrolled at Stanford University and is not entirely into his father’s job. He made a guest appearance on Rob’s show The Grinder, back in 2015, but Rob said that there is no way he will let his son start acting full time until he’s done getting a higher education. Good parenting!
The love of acting and writing runs in the Nicholson family. Jack Nicholson’s 26-year-old daughter Lorraine has been acting since she was 13. She loves both sides of the camera and has been in several films while also pursuing her love of screenwriting. In 2011 Lorraine wrote, produced, and directed a film short, her first, which only added fuel to the already ambitious fire of her creative skills. Jack must be very proud!
Looking very much like his beautiful mother, Damian Hurley is the son of actress Elizabeth Hurley and businessman Steve Bing. The young one is only 14 years old but he is already gaining quite a name for himself in the modeling world. He has his mother’s bone structure (lucky him!) and is slaying the runways and campaigns with his piercing blue eyes. His godfather is his mom’s ex-boyfriend and still best friend, Hugh Grant, so we wouldn’t be surprised if this guy went into acting or some form of show business eventually.
Emma is a known actress herself, but nonetheless, she is also the daughter and niece of famous individuals. Her father is actor Eric Roberts and her aunt is none other than Julie Roberts. Emma is currently on the small screen in the hit series Scream Queens but has also been very busy acting in films like Nerve, The Art of Getting By, Twelve, and on yet another show, American Horror Story. Acting runs in this family as true as their last name!
Brittny is the beautiful daughter of former NFL defensive end Mark Gastineau. Brittny is well known these days for two reasons – her reality television show stint with her mother, Lisa, and her prospering modeling career. There was also the time she was very good friends with Paris Hilton, but that didn’t last. Anyway, Mark and Brittny aren’t as close as a father and daughter should be, but she does have him to thank for getting her foot in the fame door.
Being a celebrity child who is born into the glitz and glam, doesn’t mean that it’s always so dazzling, especially when experiencing the loss of someone so close to you and under the most tragic circumstances. Stella is the daughter of the late Three’s a Crowd actor, John Ritter who sadly died after he fell ill on set, and quite tragically he passed away on the same day of Stella’s fifth birthday and only a few days before his 55th birthday. Stella is 18 years old now and is following in her father’s career footsteps.
Manolo Gonzalez-Ripoll Vergara
Manolo Gonzales-Ripoll Vergara, you’ve probably guessed it by now, is the handsome son of the sassy Modern Family star Sofia Vergara, who is also one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood. The 24 year old has been joining his stunning mom on red carpets in recent years and these days he is pursuing a modeling career. His dad, Joe Gonzalez, was Sofia’s high school sweetheart until the two separated in 1993. We wonder if the young Vergara is fond of his mother’s new hubby, Joe Manganiello!
She was only ten years old when she first escorted her famous and talented dad on the red carpet, and it’s safe to say that Corinne Foxx is indeed still her daddy’s little girl. She is Jamie’s oldest daughter and according to her social media accounts, the two are very close. In 2016 it was announced that she would be Miss Golden Globe. Corinne is also a big animal lover and has had a couple of modeling stints.
The resemblance is there, and apparently so as the talent, because Eva Amurri, Susan Sarandon’s daughter, is not only stunning (thanks to her Italian roots as well) but is also a very busy actress in Hollywood. In fact, she even starred with her famous mother in the 2002 film The Banger Sisters. The 32-year-old has been married to NBC’s Sports newscaster Kyle Martino since 2011, and they have two children together. Fun fact – Amurri appeared on the famous ‘The Playbook’ episode of the hit series, How I Met Your Mother.
Bryce Dallas Howard
Bryce Dallas is the daughter of the famed actor and director Ron Howard, and who will always be remembered as Richie from Happy Days. Ron and his wife Cheryl Alley have tried everything in their power to keep Bryce away from the spotlights, but that didn’t stop the 36 year old from following in her father’s footsteps. Her big break came when she starred in the 2004 film The Village and later in another thriller, Lady in the Water. The red-haired actress and mother of two is set to play in the 2018 film, Jurassic World 2.
EJ Johnson is the son of magical NBA player Magic Johnson. The 25 year old became mostly famous when he joined the cast of Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, E!’s reality show. Before his big small screen break he enrolled at NYU, and was a casual guest on the late Joan River’s show Fashion Police. The young Johnson, who came out of the closet a few years ago, recently lost over 100 pounds after he underwent gastric sleeve surgery.
Although she only found out about her real dad at the age of 12, the 39-year-old is now close as can be with her rock star father, Steven Tyler. The stunning Liv Tyler, who we all remember from the 1998 film Armageddon – where she starred alongside Ben Affleck – is a mother of three and still manages to split her time between motherhood and her acting career. The Jersey Girl actress is set to play in the movie Wilding, that will come out this year.
We can’t believe the adorable kid of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith is all grown up and is 18 years old already. The young man, who played alongside his famous father in the movie The Pursuit of Happyness back in 2006, has pretty much followed in his parents’ footsteps – both in acting and music. The young rapper has played in the remake of The Karate Kid and has also been associated with other young Hollywood names, such as Kylie Jenner.
When Brittany Favre-Mallion, daughter of the legendary Packers quarterback, gave birth to her son when she was just 21 years old, she made her famous dad, Brett Favre, the first grandad to ever play in the NFL. Favre-Mallion managed to finish her degree from Loyola University’s College of Law while raising two children, which is quite an achievement. She married her husband last year on the same date that, 20 years earlier, her dad led his famous team to win Super Bowl XXXI.
Lourdes is the beautiful and the very first daughter of the ultimate pop diva, Madonna and her then significant other Carlos Leon (who was also her personal trainer). Her full name is Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon, which is even longer than her mother’s full name, Madonna Louise Ciccone. Madonna and Leon split up shortly after Lourdes was born, but she remained very close to her father. Lourdes is currently studying musical theater at the University of Michigan (kudos for going to a university far from the public eye). She also started modeling for Stella McCartney earlier in 2016.
The middle daughter of legendary actress Meryl Streep is Grace Gummer. Grace is an actress as well, with film and television credits galore. She has been on television shows like HBO’s The Newsroom, American Horror Story: Freak Show, Mr. Robot, and Extant. Her film roles include Confirmation, Jenny’s Wedding, and Larry Crowne. Grace has absolutely gotten the acting gene from her talented mother since it runs in the family, it’s no surprise that her sisters are also in the acting field.
Charlotte is the 27-year-old daughter of Hollywood icon and Alien actress Sigourney Weaver and her longtime husband Jim Simpson. Charlotte leads a relatively quiet life but has also taken a liking to acting. She has been on the television show Kelsey, both in front of the camera and behind the scenes as a gaffer and special makeup effects artist. Her next move is a mystery to us but we are pretty sure she is going to stick to the entertainment industry.
Actress Lea Thompson is famous for films like the Back to the Future franchise and The Little Rascals, but she is also the talented mother of fellow actress and stunner Zoey Deutch. Zoey started acting when she was 15 years old on the Disney Channel show The Suite Life on Deck and quickly proceeded to land role after role and gain quite a bit of momentum for herself. Deutch has starred in films like Vampire Academy, Beautiful Creatures and Dirty Grandpa. We are sure to be seeing much more of her.
David Banda is the adopted son of pop diva Madonna and former husband Guy Ritchie. David was adopted from Malawi in 2006 and has been with momma Madonna ever since. He loves accompanying her on red carpet appearances and is often seen all over her Instagram account. Madonna has since adopted two more siblings for David, in addition to his older sister Lourdes and older brother Rocco. This kid seems to be living the life!
Taylor-Ann Hasselhoff is the eldest daughter of David Hasselhoff and Pamela Bach and the older sister of Hayley Hasselhoff. In 2015 Taylor-Ann released her first music single Collide, and was asked to join Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, a reality show on the E! Network. Prior to joining the Rich Kids cast, she starred in The Hasselhoffs with her father and younger sister. In 2007, Taylor-Ann, who was 16 years old at the time, recorded and released a video of her father intoxicated in an attempt to show him he had an alcohol problem.
The daughter of Tom Selleck, the legendary actor and the fantasy man of probably every woman in the past 50 years, did not follow her father’s footsteps. Although she was born into a family of superstars, Hannah, 28, has decided to stay away from the spotlight and moved to New Mexico, where she opened a horse farm. In her latest and a very rare interview, she opened up about growing up with such a famous and influential father. She said that her father has always insisted on keeping her away from movie premieres and red carpets, so she would have a “normal childhood.” At least as normal as it could be.
Jennifer Katharine Gates
