Though many celebrities keep their children out of the spotlight, we occasionally get glimpses of their little mini-mes. Thanks to some strong and often swoon-worthy genes, there are more than a few kids who are dead-ringers for their famous folks.
Adele’s son Angelo is her spitting image at three years old, while Mario Lopez’s daughter Gia shares his signature wide smile. From teetering toddlers to adults and preteens, here’s some side by side photos of celebs and their kids at the same age.
Drew Barrymore and Frankie Kopelman as children
Not many people would think about how their life may turn out if they were just born and given the task of making decisions, but Drew Barrymore seems to know what she wants from life. When she was only five years old, she played one of the most famous roles in recent memory – a little boy named ET who came down from outer space and became friends with Elliot (Drew). Now at 43, Drew is still very busy – acting and producing films both for television and film. She has two daughters – Frankie at four who is every bit as pretty as her mother; plus 23-year-old daughter Olive. It makes sense why Drew thinks about setting up trusts for them so they will have a prosperous future ahead.
At age 12: Tom Cruise and Suri Cruise
As Suri Cruise grows older she is slowly transforming into a spitting image of her famous father, Tom Cruise. With one quick glance, it would be easy to confuse her for being just another mini-me of Katie Holmes, but those who study pictures closely can easily see the resemblance between father and daughter – they really are related. Despite the horrid rumors that have circulated about whether or not Chris Klein was the true father or not, no DNA test is needed because we all know by looking at them together – this girl is Tom Cruise’s natural-born daughter.
At age 12: Brooke Shields and Grier Henchy
Brooke Shields had been a stunning child – it’s possible that this led to her successful modeling career, which began when she was just 11 months old. At 12 years old, Brooke had already conquered Hollywood with her role in the film Pretty Baby. Everyone naturally assumed that if there was anyone who could give birth to a truly beautiful child; it would be someone as pretty as Shields herself. What they didn’t know, however, is that some of her beauty comes from her: such as the curly hair and blue eyes seen on both of them.
At age 17: Michael Douglas and Dylan Douglas
Actor-couple Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones’ son, Dylan, is all grown up and just went to his senior prom. His mother shared a photo of her handsome son on Instagram, mentioning how his graduation was very close and that he was college-bound. It’s clear from looking at this picture of him now that he inherited his father’s good looks – even if they haven’t always been in the spotlight before!
In grade school: Heath Ledger and Matilda Ledger
Heath Ledger was considered one of the best actors of his generation, which is why many were saddened when he passed away at such a young age. The greatest inheritance Matilda got from her father are not just his wealth but also physical features; she looks exactly like him!
Joanna Gaines and Emmie Gaines as children
Fixer Upper stars Joanna Gaines and her husband Chip may have just welcomed their fifth child, Crew, in June 2018. But before he was born, another little girl was living at home – their daughter Emmie Kay. Their youngest looks so much like Joanna that she could be her clone! Even though she’s got other things to worry about these days (being a big sister), when she has free time between school duties and filming episodes of Fixer Upper with mom and dad – this beauty heads out for photo shoots or makeup tutorials. It’s refreshing to see someone who is both constantly busy yet still able to appreciate life’s luxuries – maybe it will rub off on me one day too?
At age 18: Reese Witherspoon and Ava Phillippe
Reese Witherspoon has been acting since she was 15 years old, which means that she has collected many dollars in her bank account. One thing that can’t be denied though is how much this young woman takes after Reese when it comes to her charming face and beautiful blonde hair. Does she take after mom because of expensive haircare products or does mom just have really good genes? Whatever the case may be, we think people see a resemblance between mother and daughter based on these physical features. At least for now though, there is only one person who could say for sure if Ava will follow in these footsteps – that being herself!
At age 30: Burt Reynolds and Quinton A. Reynolds
A Hollywood power couple, Burt Reynolds and Loni Anderson had children together. One of their most celebrated achievements as a family was when they adopted Quinton in 1988 even before he was born. Though his talent may not have followed in his father’s footsteps, Quinton has still made it big in Hollywood just behind the camera – without any parental help whatsoever from either parent. His dad, Burt, said he was incredibly proud of him for doing it on his own terms – proving that anything is possible with hard work and perseverance.
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Carys Douglas in their teens
Catherine Zeta-Jones has one of the most beautiful faces to grace the silver screen, which is why her daughter appears to have inherited her mother’s good looks. At a recent event, Catherine and her daughter were photographed together – each having long locks that looked great on them both. It remains unclear if they use the same shampoo or conditioner when maintaining their beauty.
At age 7: David Beckham and Harper Beckman
At age seven, Harper Beckham has taken after her mother, Victoria Beckham aka Posh Spice of the girl group Spice Girls, while also resembling her father David Beckham. Though she can be seen attending schooling most days, she also spends time horseback riding – one of her favorite hobbies! With a three-male lineup (Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz), Harper is both the youngest child and only daughter of this celebrity family. They grew up together to learn about love and what it means to sacrifice for one another – something that seems to have come quite natural as this young celebrity duo ages together.
Carrie Underwood and Isaiah Fisher as children
Country singer Carrie Underwood obviously wants the best for her child and that’s why she prefers to not have a lot of photos of her 3-year-old son’s face on her social media accounts. Her reasoning is, if anything were to happen to him then people would remember him from what he looked like when he was younger and all these pictures which she takes privately. He shares so much of his facial features and his blonde hair with Carrie, doesn’t he? But little Isaiah seems to be more inclined to his dad’s line of the profession rather than his mom’s as he can be seen at almost every one of his father’s games – because Dad is Canadian ice hockey player Mike Fisher who used to play for the Nashville Predators.
Steve Jobs and Eve Jobs in their teens
Apple Founder Steve Jobs left four children behind when he passed away in 2011—including his own daughter. Named Lisa, she was born of Jobs’ affair with Chrisann Brennan. The other three were conceived through marriage to Laurene Powell Jobs.
Jobs sought to protect his children’s privacy—away from the intrusive glare of the media—as much as possible while they were growing up, and it seems even now that at least one of them prefers a life lived outside Silicon Valley tech culture. He or she is so far reported only as Eve.
A 19-year-old equestrian, Eve has eschewed technology for horses, but she shares an interest in Stanford University with Bill Gates’ own young daughter (though her father doesn’t seem keen on drawing attention). All this makes sense given Jobs’ successful career; he amassed a personal fortune worth around $10 billion before passing away from cancer aged 56 in October 2011.
At age 12: Julia Roberts and Hazel Moder
Julia Roberts has always made her family life very private. Her children are difficult to spot even if you’re looking for them. However, in recent years she has opened up more about them to the public- especially to Celebrity Photographers and Paparazzi who love catching glimpses of her daughter Hazel’s beautiful face every time they’re near Julia. There’s no denying that this little girl could be the next Pretty Woman from looking at how much she resembles both Julia and herself when she was young! We really wish we could see this little angel smile sooner rather than later- do you think she inherited her mother’s million-dollar smile and all those investments from her mother?
At age 33: O.J. Simpson and Sydney Simpson
OJ Simpson played for the NFL and became famous for his involvement in his wife’s murder trial, but he was ultimately acquitted of all charges made against him. After many years during which he lost custody of some of his children, one child being Sydney Brooke Simpson, he has been released from prison. Sydney had an emotional reunion with her father when he was freed from jail; she has stayed out of the public eye since then but reportedly lives a very successful life. She is into owning restaurants and real estate.
ANGELINA JOLIE AND VIVIENNE MARCHELINE JOLIE-PITT IN THEIR CHILDHOOD
It’s no secret that Angelina Jolie is one of the most famous actresses in Hollywood. After ending her marriage to fellow actor Brad Pitt, she stays active and continues to act while also being a powerful activist – something she has done since 2008 when she gave birth to twins, including daughter Vivienne Marcheline Jolie-Pitt. The girl looks just like her mother at nine years old, which becomes clearer every day – especially when you compare pictures of them both aged seven. They acted together for the first time in Maleficent where Jolie played Maleficent alongside her daughter who was only seven years old. It will surely have some effect on children when their parent’s divorce but hopefully it won’t affect Vivienne too badly or at least enough so she can still enjoy two Christmas presents this year – if not this way then another.
CAROLINE KENNEDY AND JACK SCHLOSSBERG IN THEIR 20S
One of former President John F. Kennedy’s legacies is his descendants; many had hoped that when John F. Kennedy Jr. (John-John) was still alive, he would eventually run for office and continue his late father’s work. Sadly, much like his dad, John too died young in a plane crash at the promising age of 38 years old. There still remains Caroline – JFK’s only living child, as well as her kids. Recently though, the media’s attention has been directed towards her son – Jack Schlossberg – who just turned 25 and looks exactly like her Uncle John did while he was growing up!
BRAD PITT AND SHILOH JOLIE-PITT AT AGE 12
Actor Brad Pitt and actress Angelina Jolie’s charmed relationship may have ended in divorce, but it did yield a brood of mesmerizingly beautiful kids, both through adoption or conceived naturally. They achieved this even though they are no longer together – as they still love and respect one another despite all the challenges they face. Out of these children is Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, now 11 years old who looks remarkably like her father – actor Brad Pitt. Meanwhile, he has been cast to star in an upcoming sci-fi movie called Ad Astra that will be directed by James Gray.
ANTONIO BANDERAS AND STELLA BANDERAS IN THEIR 20S
Antonio Banderas’ daughter with Melanie Griffith has inherited the good genes of both her parents without needing a DNA test. Stella is still too young to participate in movies and it doesn’t seem like she will go into acting like her family members did; however, there are other ways for her to make money such as through inheritance.
STEPHEN CURRY AND RILEY CURRY in grade school
Stephen Curry, a highly regarded athlete and household name for many years now, has never been shy about expressing his faith or connecting with others through religion. In fact, he was introduced to Ayesha Alexander Curry by their mutual involvement in Church activities. The two soon fell deeply in love; marrying after just one year of dating. Together they have three children, the youngest being Riley who was born in 2012. Even though both Stephen and Ayesha are wealthy from all their success over the years – it’s clear that this celebrity couple values intelligence above all else when raising their kids. For instance, six-year-old Riley is often described as a mini version of her father due to how much she looks like him (especially considering hair color and eye color).
ADELE AND ANGELO ADKINS AT AGE 3
It is well known that Grammy award-winning artist Adele writes about her heartbreaks and other tough moments in life. After having her son Angelo, though, all she does is miss him terribly – this includes times when she has to record music for hours on end or tour for months at a time. And we’re still shocked by how much he looks like his mom! With the signature long gold locks; piercing blue eyes, and delicate face shape of his mother – they could’ve been twins if it weren’t for those two years’ difference between them.
AGE 27: RACHAEL BLOSIL/Rachael Krueger AND MARIE OSMOND
Marie Osmond gained notoriety for appearing alongside her two famous brothers – Donny and Jimmy – when they were part of an act called The Osmond Brothers. They performed in a few episodes, but Marie soon left the spotlight to pursue a solo career. She starred in her own television series, Donny & Marie, and made many guest appearances on other programs. She became known for having eight children from three different relationships – none of which are blood-related – including five adoptions. This all changed recently when she welcomed a daughter; Rocket Jade, into the world.
BETH CHAPMAN AND CECILY CHAPMAN AT AGES 35 AND 25
Undoubtedly, the star of the popular show Dog The Bounty Hunter and its spin-offs is Duane Chapman – but his fifth wife, Beth Chapman has also been a constant presence in the shows. Managing the bails bond office and usually counsels detained suspects for them, she was only 19 when she met Duane (albeit he had to marry her mom’s friend before they could date), from this union came Cecily Chapman (though she wasn’t actually born until after her mother married him). Though 20 years old now, Cecilie still seems very much like one of us – as we see on episodes such as Dog And Beth: On The Hunt. With Beth’s recent cancer scare, it would seem that Cecilie would stand beside her parents during this time.
HUGH GRANT AND JOHN MUNGO GRANT AT AGE 5
If you were to list down every single one of your favorite romantic comedies starring Hugh Grant, it would seem that John Mungo might just be your new best friend. They look almost identical when compared side-by-side and no one will ever notice the difference between the two. Everyone says that Hugh has five children from two different mothers but still manages to find time for them by visiting them at least once a week or so, holding hands with his youngest daughter on the beach while they both share a private moment together. He gives each child an equal amount of love without fail; something even other wealthy parents don’t always do.
LIV TYLER AND LULA ROSE GARDNER AT AGE 3
The youngest member of the Tyler family, 3-year-old Lula Rose is already a seasoned superstar. Her mother, Liv Tyler, is an actor best known for playing Eowyn in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy. Lula’s father is David Gardner who has also served as a manager for athletes such as Ben Roethlisberger and Greg Olsen. When she isn’t being photographed by paparazzi or shooting commercials with her mom and dad, you can find this smart girl reading books or watching cartoons at home. Much like her grandmother before her, it looks like Lula will have no problem breaking hearts on both sides of the pond given how much alike they seem to be!
MICHAEL JACKSON AND PRINCE MICHAEL JACKSON II AT AGE 16
There are few people on this earth who can compare to the talent and appeal of Michael Jackson – apart from his young son, Michael Jackson II. 16-year-old Michael does not court fame or attention; preferring instead to keep a low profile for privacy reasons.
JACLYN SMITH AND SPENCER MARGARET RICHMOND AT AGE 30
When Jaclyn Smith heard about the production of an ABC sitcom called ‘Charlie’s Angels,’ she knew that it would be one of those rare, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. So when offered the role of ‘Kelly Garrett,’ the only Angel to stay until the end of the show and never replaced, she jumped at it. The show ended up opening many doors in Hollywood for her, which led to starring roles in movies and TV shows throughout her long career–and even marriage with noted English cinematographer Anthony B Richmond (a year after meeting on set) and motherhood to two children; a son named Bruce and a daughter named Spencer Margaret. Today Spencer is happily married without any intention of going into acting or living in Los Angeles like her parents little else is known about her life other than that she has been blessed with two children (like herself).
RICHARD GERE AND HOMER JAMES JIGME GERE AT AGE 18
Actor Richard Gere is expecting a child with his new wife, Alejandra Silva. They’ve been married for two months and are very happy together. He has two children from his previous marriage to actress Carey Lowell; one of which he had named after himself because it was so important for him to continue the family name. Gere’s oldest son, Homer James Jigme Gere, is now eighteen years old and shares many of his father’s qualities when it comes to physical appearance (and even talent).
RON HOWARD AND REED HOWARD IN THEIR 30S
Beloved actor turned director Ron Howard has an incredible creative talent that would be a complete waste if he didn’t pass it on to his children. Lucky for him, his daughter Bryce Dallas Howard was bitten by the acting bug at a young age and she followed in her father’s footsteps. Not many know that besides Bryce, Ron also has other children; one of them being his only son Reed. Though private, we do know from what little information there is about him -the same dark hair and brown eyes- that he does take after his dad quite well. Whether or not this youngster dreams of becoming a great filmmaker like his dad, we don’t really know.
GISELE BÜNDCHEN AND VIVIAN LAKE BRADY as children
When Brazilian model Gisele Bündchen married American football player Tom Brady, we were expecting to see beautiful children come from the two, but what people didn’t expect was how strikingly similar they would look to their parents. Now, Vivian has grown up and spends most of her time traveling with her parents at their various assignments – whether it’s on location for a fashion shoot or attending one of her father’s football games – when she isn’t at school. It seems as though everyone is excited about what this means for the future of these children and how uniquely special it will be being raised in such fame-filled households!
MARIO LOPEZ AND GIA FRANCESCA LOPEZ as children
With many blessings come responsibilities, and Gia Francesca Lopez has taken it upon herself to follow in her father’s footsteps. Though only seven years old, this little girl has already landed her first acting gig – voicing the character of Estrella on Disney’s Elena of Avalor television show. It would seem like luck was just inevitable for this little one; not only does she look exactly like her handsome dad, but also shares his talents when it comes to performing. As far back as she can remember, it seems that the ‘acting bug’ had been biting away at this young one ever since she could talk!
GWEN STEFANI AND KINGSTON ROSSDALE IN THEIR TEENS
When Gwen Stefani married Gavin Rossdale and became pregnant, they started their own family. Their first child was Kingston Rossdale, a strapping teenage boy. When their parents divorced, he stayed with his mother who also then remarried country crooner Blake Shelton. His father still remains very involved in his life which is why Kingston spends time visiting him too from time to time. He manages school well while still enjoying being just a regular teenager – hanging out with friends and even experimenting with blue hair dye at one point!
SANDRA BULLOCK AND LOUIS BARDO BULLOCK IN THEIR CHILDHOOD
A DNA test may show that beloved actress Sandra Bullock is not the biological mother of her son, Louis Bardo Bullock; however, this will not stop her from giving him an inheritance. In 2010 she adopted her African-American child Louis after he was taken away from his foster parents in Louisiana. This little boy may not be related to Sandra by blood but she still considers him hers and wants to make sure he has a secure future ahead of him even if it means sharing some of her money with him when she dies – which would be great since he won’t have much else growing up without family or friends around.
EDDIE MURPHY AND MILES MITCHELL MURPHY AT AGE 25
Comedian-actor Eddie Murphy has nine children with five different women. All nine of his children were born during two separate marriages: The first marriage was to model Nicole Mitchell which resulted in one child named Miles Mitchell Murphy, now 25 years old. Now divorced from Mitchell after 8-years together, Murphy still maintains contact with her son – whom he considers himself a father figure. Although having an estimated net worth of $100 million dollars per year, the comedian does not seem inclined to leave any assets for Murphy Jr., preferring instead for his children to live life without needing anything else; much as he does himself. With nothing known about Murphy Jr., it’s hard to say if there is anything that makes him stand out amongst his brothers and sisters (possibly taking after dad by always wearing red).
VANNA WHITE AND GIGI SANTO PIETRO IN THEIR 20S
America loves game shows, so it wouldn’t be surprising that most of the country is familiar with Vanna White, who has hosted Wheel of Fortune for over 37 years now. While she retired from showbiz recently and took some time to enjoy life, today America can’t stop talking about her daughter – artist-writer Gigi Santo Pietro. The talented 20-year-old beauty’s pursuits are very different from both her dad (restaurateur George Santo Pietro) and mom (Vanna White), but still there might come a day when she follows in their footsteps.
FAITH HILL AND MAGGIE MCGRAW AT AGE 18
Country superstar Tim McGraw attended the American Music Awards last year in November, and no, that is not his wife Faith Hill who accompanied him; instead he was there with one of their three daughters, Maggie. When Maggie was younger people often noted how she resembled her father but when looking at her recent photos side by side next to an old photo of Faith taken when she was 18 – you would never guess they were different people! They could’ve been twins for all we know. And really, we’re just dying to find out which anti-aging product Faith uses because she doesn’t look anywhere near fifty years old!
ROBERT DE NIRO AND RAPHAEL DE NIRO AT AGE 30
Robert De Niro has six children, two each from three different women – so it could be imagined how difficult the family gathering at dinner will be. His eldest son, who bares an uncanny resemblance to his father, is in his forties and after being a production assistant on his father’s films (like The King of Comedy) and working in the restaurant Nobu (which Robert owned), became an influential real estate broker in NYC. Famous for selling Manhattan’s most expensive listing- he left Hollywood behind to make new waves in the ever-growing business world.
ANNA NICOLE SMITH AND DANNIELYNN BIRKHEAD as children
Just as Anna Nicole Smith would have wanted it, her daughter continues to make waves in the entertainment industry. At only 11 years old, Dannielynn Birkhead has already been modeling for Guess Kids and made appearances on popular television shows such as Dr. Phil where she discussed the struggles of being thrust into fame at a young age but never forgetting about her famous mother who loved fashion so much that she launched one of the most iconic brands of all time – Guess Incorporated.
MARISKA HARGITAY AND AUGUST MIKLOS FRIEDRICH HERMANN as children
Mariska Hargitay has been famous for some time now thanks to starring in popular TV shows like Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Before then, she had earned her title as ‘celebrity’ by being born into a family where both parents were well known actresses; Hargitay’s father, Mickey Hargitay is world renowned bodybuilder while her mother is Hollywood starlet Jayne Mansfield. Today Mariska can boast about having three children of her own – two adopted and one biologically related daughter (with husband Peter Hermann) – all aged 12 at this point. One can see obvious resemblance between little August Miklos Friedrich Hermann – named after his maternal grandfather/Mickey and paternal grandmother/Jayne – and its actress mum so it’s safe to say that the young boy will inherit both acting genes from his parents too.
SALMA HAYEK AND VALENTINA PALOMA PINAULT IN THEIR PRETEENS
Mexican actress Salma Hayek is a stunner who has been able to use her beauty for some time now. While she began modeling as soon as she was old enough, it wasn’t long before she became one of the biggest stars in Hollywood and eventually landed roles outside of the spotlight too – proving herself to be talented across many genres from dramatic films like Frida and Desperado, all the way to comedies like Grown Ups. Now that she’s older and married with children, though, you can find Salma sitting front row at Fashion Week shows while attending Valentina’s soccer games on Saturdays or volunteering at charity events; leaving Hollywood behind until necessary.
JASON PRIESTLEY AND AVA VERONICA PRIESTLEY IN THEIR PRETEENS
Although actor Jason Priestly started out in a few less famous TV series when he first got into acting, there was nothing quite like his fame-making role of Brandon Walsh on the highly popular television show Beverly Hills, 90210. He wasn’t just talented in front of the camera; behind it too, Priestly directed 15 episodes for the series. Nowadays he still acts and is raising his family–including daughter Ava Veronica who is 13 years old now and can be seen voicing characters in many different cartoons such as Wishenpoof and JazzDuck. This year she took home a Young Artist Award (2016) for her most recent work.
STEVE JOBS AND LISA BRENNAN-JOBS AT AGE 37
While Steve Jobs was beginning the startup of Apple Inc., he had just begun to fall out of love with his high school girlfriend Chrisann Brennan. She eventually gave birth to their daughter, Lisa, but he constantly denied being her father. A court-ordered paternity test proved otherwise and afterward, he only ever paid $500 in child support from all of his money as a millionaire. In her memoir titled Small Fry – she recalls an abusive relationship where she felt like she was never good enough for him because she didn’t look anything like him or carry any of his genes – which we’re sure haven’t been passed down at all given how little attention he’s given after death.
TOM JONES AND JONATHAN BERKERY IN THEIR 20S
Legendary crooner Tom Jones might have fathered at least one illegitimate son. The former is the singer’s legitimate son with his late wife, Linda, while the latter–Jonathan–was someone he did not acknowledge until 2008 when a court declared that a DNA test proved he was indeed Jones’ son with the former model, Katherine Berkery. After agreeing to fulfill the court’s order to pay a monthly allowance to Jonathan until he turns 18, Jones said he never want to have anything to do with the boy. Now 29 years old, Jonathan Berkery is an aspiring musician calling himself Jon Jones. He had been in the news for being homeless and was previously arrested for drug possession.
JOANNA GAINES AND CREW GAINES AS TODDLERS
This throwback photo of Fixer Upper’s Joanna Gaines had us do a double take because the newest addition to her family looks just like his famous mommy. Sources close to the Gaines family say that her youngest son Crew, who was born in June of 2018, shares a striking resemblance with his mother. We only need to wait and watch if he also becomes a talented interior designer with a lot of investments and savings when he gets older just like his parents.
LONI ANDERSON AND DEIDRE HOFFMAN IN THEIR EARLY 20S
Actress Loni Anderson rose to fame when she starred in the popular series, WKRP in Cincinnati, as well as other TV shows and movies including The Jayne Mansfield Story and Easy Street. In addition to being best known for her marriage to Actor Burt Reynolds, Anderson is also a mother to two children; Deidre Hoffman (her biological daughter) and Quinton Reynolds (her adopted son). On top of her personal struggles such as divorcing Reynolds after marrying him, adopting this child in order to fill what she felt was missing from her life, and raising both children alone while suffering from MS herself – Anderson has been able to maintain stability through difficult times which makes her all the more admirable.
JULIA ROBERTS AND PHINNAEUS MODER AT AGE 11
One of the most famous Hollywood actresses, Julia Roberts has had years of experience under her belt and even understands what it means to be constantly in the spotlight. Perhaps this is why she does not like people taking pictures of her children, who often play and go about their daily lives. One day after dropping off their daughter at school, a paparazzo managed to snap an exclusive photo of them together – but luckily for him, Julia can’t stay mad at anyone long!
CHRIS NOTH AND ORION CHRISTOPHER NOTH IN THEIR PRE-TEENS
As one of the most popular actors back in his day, many wondered when Chris Noth would finally settle down with a family of his own. In 2012, after being together for over 20 years and having one child together, he announced that he had gotten married to long-time girlfriend Tara Lynn Wilson (actress). He also has another son who is 10 (named Orion) from a previous relationship. His children are often spotted out and about with him at various events such as basketball games or going to the beach. Seeing an older father interacting so well with his kids surely warms many hearts because it proves you don’t need to be young or wealthy to raise good kids.
CLAUDIA SCHIFFER AND COSIMA VIOLET AT AGE 7
Many children who are offspring of famous fashion models possess incredible genes that seem to run in the family. Take Claudia Schiffer’s daughter Cosima for example – she is one of three children born from an alliance between a German fashion model and her director husband, Matthew Vaughn. While still being too young to fully understand what it means when photographers follow them around everywhere they go just to take pictures, Claudia does everything she can so that her children live as normal lives as possible and grow up while making good choices.
BOB DYLAN AND DESIREE DENNIS-DYLAN AT AGE 30
It would be a gross understatement to say that singer Bob Dylan has led an exciting life. With many hits and platinum records, strange yet loyal fans, and even the Nobel Prize for his contributions to English Literature! His private life is just as eventful – After divorcing his first wife of 12 years, he found himself quickly remarrying his longtime backup singer Carolyn Dennis but they got a divorce after 6 years of marriage. Apparently, Carolyn wanted their marriage and even their only daughter Desiree, to stay a secret so she could have a normal childhood while being hidden from the public eye due to her celebrity parents. And now married to her long-time partner Desi who also plays drums at local LA hotspots, she vocalizes how little time she spent with her father because it was always about work or touring across the country.
BETH CHAPMAN AND BONNIE CHAPMAN IN THEIR 20’S
Prior to finding out she had a tumor in her throat, Beth Chapman was an integral part of what made her husband’s show so successful. She and he were partners, stars, and spouses; appearing together on Dog the Bounty Hunter. It showcased them everyday life as bounty hunters – which also included some pretty intense moments that you might never see coming! When it came time for her to finally undergo treatment for cancer, she remained strong through all of it – even when death eventually took hold. Leaving behind two daughters (one among them being Bonnie) after battling with this deadly disease for years, we know how important it was to have stellar medical coverage from all angles!
HUGH JACKMAN AND OSCAR MAXIMILIAN JACKMAN AT AGE 17
Wolverine actor Hugh Jackman has had a successful career for many years now. And his large net worth will attest to the fact that he is an all-around bankable celebrity. However, this may not be all there is to him; lucky for us he also has a happy home life – something that most other Hollywood stars do not have. Married since 1996 and still looking so much in love, Deborra-lee Furness (his wife) and Hugh share two adopted children together – son Oscar Maximilian and daughter Ava Elio.
KANDI BURRUSS AND RILEY BURRUSS AT AGE 15
Television audiences got to know Kandi when she starred on The Real Housewives of Atlanta; however, what most don’t know is that prior to this, she had already featured in a number of TV series including The Kandi Factory and Kandi’s Wedding. Much unlike her mother though, Riley is nothing out of the ordinary for an American teenager – for instance, just last week (before turning 16) she celebrated another milestone- getting her drivers license! And today one might say that it wasn’t all too surprising when after such an eventful evening filled with friends there was a gift waiting for Riley next to her bed – because everyone knows where there are television cameras children can bet their money on something grand coming from mommy dearest–a black Porsche Cayenne Turbo S!
DANIEL DAY-LEWIS AND CASHEL BLAKE DAY-LEWIS AT AGE 15
Actor Daniel Day-Lewis has repeatedly said that he will retire from movies very soon. It would be a shame for us to lose this great actor, but we are confident in his son, Cashel Blake, who can take his place once he leaves the limelight. The youthful 17-year-old star is seen often at movie premieres and award ceremonies with other stars such as footballer David Beckham’s son, Brooklyn Beckham.
