Do you remember when Michael Jackson dangled Blanket from the balcony window? Did you hold watch as Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, entered the hospital for their birth of their son, Prince George, or their daughter, Princess Charlotte? From musicians and Hollywood stars to worldwide political figures, celebrity children have always been a subject of great interest.

A celebrity’s life is always great fodder for tabloids but adding children into the mix often makes better stories of interest as readers clamor for insight into the lives of these A-list children. When a famous power couple welcomes a child into the world, society is filled with desperation and curiosity to see the child, learn of his or her name, and everything else just short of the brand of diapers the couple has chosen. The high interest and fame of the parents often, as a result, is passed down to the child, leading to a childhood spent in the ever-glaring spotlight.

For some children, living a life in the public eye can be devastating as the pressure of being photographed and questioned is often intrusive and overwhelming. Some children and their parents do their best to avoid the drama that comes with the paparazzi while others choose to embrace it. However, one thing holds true and that is the fact that as children of famous stars age, we see less and less of them in the spotlight as they follow their own paths outside of their celebrity parents.

What happens to celebrity children who keep it together despite their parents’ incredible fortune and fame? Join us as we take a look at 50 kids of celebs who are all grown up! Starting our list with a comedic legend and his beautiful daughter, we’re sure this won’t be the last time you’ll see or hear from these outstanding celebrity kids! Let’s get started!

#50 – Jane Carrey (Jim Carrey)

Jane-Carrey-Jim-Carrey
When your dad is a living comedic legend like Jim Carrey, life is already pretty grand as an only child if you’re Jane Erin Carrey. With her dad ranked as one of the funniest men in the world known for a string of hits ranging from Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and Dumb and Dumber to The Truman Show and Man on the Moon, Jane has managed to pave her own path to stardom in the music industry where her dad has yet to flex his muscles.

Born on September 6, 1987 to Jim Carrey and Melissa Womer, a former actress and waitress at the Comedy Store where Jim often performed, Jane stayed under the radar for much of her childhood especially after her parents divorced in 1995. But, it didn’t last for long. The stunning 29-year-old who shares her father’s wide smile and brown locks set her sights on the stage in 2012 and tried her hand at American Idol. Although she debuted a killer set of pipes, neither her talent nor the Carrey name could carry her through the early rounds of competition. Better luck next time!

#49 – Lorraine Nicholson (Jack Nicholson)

Lorraine-Nicholson-Jack-Nicholson
Is this as good as it gets? While Jim Carrey may be a legend in comedy, 79-year-old Jack Nicholson is a legend in his own right after spending the last 60 years racking up a dozen Academy Award nominations earning him the title as the most nominated male actor in Academy history. But what about his family life? Married only once—to Sandra Knight from 1962 to 1968—Nicholson actually has six children, one of whom just so happens to be 26-year-old Lorraine Broussard Nicholson who has followed in her father’s acting footsteps.

From 1989 to 1994, Nicholson was involved with actress Rebecca Broussard (Mars Attacks! and Point of Betrayal) during which time the couple welcomed their first child, Lorraine, on April 16, 1990. Named after her father’s aunt but bearing more resemblance to her mother, Lorraine made her first appearance as an extra at the age of 13 in her father’s film Something’s Gotta Give. Bitten by the acting bug, she wrote, produced and directed her first short film in 2011 months before starring as the lead in Soul Surfer. Since then, she’s appeared in Click, World’s Greatest Dad and Hacker while honing her skills as a screenwriter.

#48 – Miles Robbins (Susan Sarandon & Tim Robbins)

Miles-Robbins-Susan-Sarandon-and-Tim-Robbins
Under the bright lights of Hollywood, when two stars get together and manage to have a relationship that lasts for more than just a few months—let alone a couple of decades—it’s close to being Oscar worthy. That’s exactly what award-winning actors Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins were able to do from 1988 to 2009 after meeting on the set of Bull Durham where Sarandon played Kevin Costner’s love interest. Never tying the knot and choosing to cohabitate, the couple had two sons during their 11-year relationship—Jack Henry and Miles Guthrie.

The youngest of Sarandon’s three children, the 24-year-old Miles is now working as a musician and DJ but is anxious to break into acting after spending his childhood walking the red carpet with his famous parents. Already a natural-born star and off to a great start making headlines with his eccentric style, the long-haired Miles turned heads earlier this year when he arrived at the Zoolander No. 2 premiere wearing a dress and light blue blazer with My Little Pony dolls sewn on. Was he inspired by the zany Derek Zoolander or is this part of his eccentric style? We think it’s a little of both!

#47 – Alexandra Hoffman (Dustin Hoffman)

Alexandra-Hoffman-Dustin-Hoffman
“I’m an excellent driver!” Praised as one of the most versatile actors in Hollywood history since making his acting debut in 1960 opposite Gene Hackman at the Pasadena Playhouse, Dustin Hoffman is known for his critically acclaimed and award-winning performances in films like The Graduate, Kramer vs. Kramer and Rain Man. Out of all the accolades and awards, however, the 78-year-old actor and director says that his greatest accomplishments are behind the scenes with his wife of 36 years, Lisa Gottsegen Hoffman, and his six children.

With two children from his first marriage, Hoffman and Lisa welcomed four children from 1981 to 1987, the youngest of whom is Alexandra Lydia Hoffman (not to be confused with the pageant queen of the same name from South Dakota). Now 28 years old and taking after her father only in looks, Alexandra has done her best to steer clear of the spotlight and only made headlines after her brief relationship with actor Jonah Hill. As the relationship fizzled, Alexandra’s heartache was overshadowed from her enjoyment of being out of the spotlight once again.

#46 – Lucy DeVito (Danny DeVito & Rhea Perlman)

Lucy-DeVito-Danny-DeVito-and-Rhea-Perlman
Short, talented and hilarious—what isn’t to love about It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star Danny DeVito? Long before starring as Frank Reynolds on the FXX sitcom, the 4’10” tall DeVito was a silver screen star known for films like One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Romancing the Stone, Twins and L.A. Confidential. Yet, even before he became a household name in Hollywood, he proved he was lucky in love in 1971 when he met actress Rhea Perlman. Moving in together after dating for two weeks, the couple married in 1982 and welcomed three children over the next five years.

DeVito and Perlman’s first born is Lucy Chet DeVito who, like so many others on our list, followed her parents to the stage. Now 33 years old, Lucy made her stage debut in 2008 as Anne Frank in a Washington production before landing a role in the 2009 film Leaves of Grass. She has since made appearances in DeadBeat, Melissa & Joey and alongside her father in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. As for her height, Lucy obviously got the short end of the stick and took after her dear old dad standing only an inch taller at 4’11”.

#45 – Justin Combs (Sean Combs)

Justin-Combs-Sean-Combs
Puffy, Puff Daddy, Diddy, P. Diddy or Sean—However you slice it, Sean John Combs is one of the most successful artists in rap music with an impressive net worth of over $700 million thanks to his ventures as a record producer, entrepreneur and actor. The founder of Bad Boy Entertainment since 1993, Combs has produced some of the biggest names in hip hop while releasing dozens of his own hits over the last 26 years including “I’ll Be Missing You,” I Need a Girl” and “Bad Boy for Life.”

A father of six, Combs welcomed his firstborn in 1993 when his high school sweetheart gave birth to their son, Justin. Over the years, Justin has been in and out of the spotlight with appearances on MTV’s My Super Sweet 16 when Combs gave him a $360,000 Maybach car and chauffeur for his birthday. Despite his dad’s success in music, Justin dreamed of becoming a football star and enrolled at UCLA on a football scholarship where he was singled out when Combs was deemed a “helicopter parent.” Eventually leaving the team, the now 23-year-old Justin stayed at UCLA and became the first of his family to earn a college degree.

#44 – Sosie Bacon (Kevin Bacon & Kyra Sedgwick)

Sosie-Bacon-Kevin-Bacon-and-Kyra-Sedgwick
Come on now, who doesn’t love Bacon? Capitalizing on his famous moniker early on, Kevin Bacon has enjoyed four decades of success marked by blockbusters like JFK, A Few Good Men and Footloose. Joining him for much of his epic adventure in Hollywood (as well as her own with hits like The Closer, Man on a Ledge and The Game Plan) is Kyra Sedgwick who met Bacon on the set of Lemon Sky. With instant chemistry, the couple tied the knot in 1988 and welcomed their son, Travis, a year later and their daughter, Sosie Ruth, in 1992.

Despite her parents doing their best to keep her out of the spotlight and persuade her not to pursue a career in acting, the now 24-year-old Sosie followed her parents straight to Hollywood where, ironically enough, she was cast by her father in Loverboy at 10 years old. Because of her stellar performance, she was then invited to join her mother on The Closer as Deputy Chief Charlie Johnson despite Sedgwick being opposed to the idea. With no turning back now, Sosie is off to a great start in her career as Ana Maria in Novela Land as well as in hits like Scream, Lost Boy and Wishin’ and Hopin’.

#43 – Ireland Baldwin (Alec Baldwin & Kim Basinger)

Ireland-Baldwin-Alec-Baldwin-and-Kim-Basinger
When it comes to Hollywood royalty, the Baldwin Brothers often make the top of the list and, as luck would have it, Ireland Baldwin just so happens to call Stephen, Daniel and William her uncles! Hitting the jackpot when it comes to celebrity parents, Ireland was born to actors Alec Baldwin (30 Rock and Beetlejuice) and Kim Basinger (L.A. Confidential and Hard Country) in 1995. With her parents meeting on the set of The Marrying Man in 1990 and marrying in 1993, Ireland spent most of her childhood under the radar until her parents divorced in 2002.

Standing at 6’2” tall, Ireland was destined for the runway and launched her professional modeling career at the age of 18 when she signed with IMG Models. A month later, she made her modeling debut wearing a swimsuit in the New York Post and soon found herself in dozens of campaigns for publications like W Magazine, Vanity Fair and Elle. The 20-year-old beauty has even tried her hand at acting—she’s a Baldwin, after all—and played the younger version of her mother in Grudge Match in what many deemed a role she was born to play.

#42 – Sistine Stallone (Sylvester Stallone)

Sistine-Stallone-Sylvester-Stallone
“It ain’t over till it’s over!” Often taking the top spot of the list when it comes to action movie stars, Sylvester Stallone has made $400 million throughout his 46-year career beating up fictional characters in blockbusters like Rocky, The Expendables and Rambo. Apart from his silver screen tough-guy persona, however, Stallone is a proud husband and father of five whose first marriage to Brigitte Nielsen may have made headlines in the late 1980s but his most recent marriage to Jennifer Flavin is what the 70-year-old screenwriter, producer and director calls lasting love.

Marrying Flavin in 1997 and welcoming three daughters, Stallone’s middle daughter Sistine has done her best to avoid walking in the shadows of her legendary father. Instead, the 18-year-old joined Ireland Baldwin at IMG Models where she proudly displays her unique and funky sense of style. When asked if she ever planned to make her way to the silver screen like her father, Sistine said, “I don’t enjoy acting as much as I love modeling.” Looks like Sly will save a few bucks on acting lessons if that’s the case!

#41 – Damian Charles Hurley (Elizabeth Hurley)

Damian-Charles-Hurley-Elizabeth-Hurley
Joining the ranks of England’s most beautiful actresses is the stunning Elizabeth Hurley who first turned heads as a model in her late 20s before she launched her acting career. Now 51 years old, Hurley is known for films like Four Weddings and a Funeral, Bedazzled and Austin Powers in addition to her high profile relationship from 1987 to 2000 with her former costar and A-lister Hugh Grant. After the couple split, Hurley had a son—Damian Charles—with businessman Steve Bing in 2002 who, after several denials and a paternity test, eventually acknowledged Damian was his.

Now 14 years old, Damian Charles is often seen tagging along with his mother in Hollywood as she says that he “loves being on the set” and helps ensure that she sticks to her busy schedule, which leaves many to wonder if the youngster will follow his mother (or godfather Hugh Grant) into acting. When asked about her son’s plans for the future, Hurley says, “I don’t know if he will be an actor, but I think he will be in show business.” We can’t wait to see what the future holds!

#40 – Frances Bean Cobain (Kurt Cobain & Courtney Love)

Frances-Bean-Cobain-Kurt-Cobain-and-Courtney-Love
“Come as you are, as you were, as I want you to be…” Throughout the 1990s, a Seattle-based rock band by the name of Nirvana completely changed the face of rock music as Kurt Cobain and his bandmates took the stage. Pumping out iconic hits like “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and “Come As You Are,” few were surprised when rock’s notorious lead singer married another music icon, Courtney Love from the band Hole, in 1992. Months later, Love gave birth to their only daughter, Frances Bean Cobain.

Named after guitarist Frances McKee and after a kidney bean, which Kurt thought she resembled on the ultrasound, Frances spent much of her childhood shuffled between family members after her father’s death and her mother’s drug-related arrests. By the age of 14, she made her modeling debut in Elle magazine and has been on the runway ever since in addition to dabbling in both art and photography. Worth $170 million today, the 23-year-old recently filed for divorce from The Eeries singer Isaiah Silva after nearly two years together.

#39 – Brooklyn Beckham (David & Victoria Beckham)

Brooklyn-Beckham-David-and-Victoria-Beckham
Everyone knows about the Royal Family in the United Kingdom, but did you know that there’s another class of royals…British celebrities! Among these royal celebrity Brits is David Beckham who has been the face of England soccer for over 20 years after making his professional debut in 1992. In July 1999, Beckham upped his celebrity status when he tied the knot with Victoria Adams whose early career as Posh Spice of The Spice Girls sealed her fate as English royalty. That same year, the couple welcomed their first child and heir to the Beckham throne, Brooklyn Joseph Beckham.

Now 17 years old and the eldest of his three siblings, Brooklyn is frequently seen with his parents around London and even played soccer for a short period but obviously didn’t develop the same soccer chops like his dad. Instead, Brooklyn remains undecided about his future plans but traded in his jersey and cleats for a camera to pursue his newest passion in photography. As for his personal life, rumors are running wild that a second generation power couple just might be in the works after he was seen locking lips with actress Chloe Grace Moretz.

#38 – Connor Cruise (Tom Cruise & Nicole Kidman)

Connor-Cruise-Tom-Cruise-and-Nicole-Kidman
Little did Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman realize after meeting on the set of Days of Thunder in 1990 that they would soon become one of Hollywood’s hottest and most powerful celebrity couples. Already famous for hits like Rain Man and Dead Calm, the star-crossed lovers married in December 1990 and adopted two children—Isabella and Connor Antony—shortly after. As their marriage neared the decade mark, things seemed perfect for the family of four until Cruise filed for divorce in February 2001 and ended their 11-year fairytale.

While the world has seen endless headlines and photographs of Cruise’s daughter Suri with ex-wife Katie Holmes, his son Connor is perfectly fine staying out of the spotlight. Now living a fairly quiet life and happily pursuing his interests in music as an internationally known DJ, the 21-year-old Connor is extremely close to his mom saying, “I love her a lot. My family means everything.” But, don’t let his dad’s megastar status fool you as Cruise often travels to watch his son DJ at clubs and events around the world.

#37 – Zelda Williams (Robin Williams)

Zelda-Williams-Robin-Williams
On August 11, 2014, the world was devastated to learn that renowned comedian and actor Robin Williams had taken his own life. Lighting up the silver screen for nearly 40 years with legendary films like Good Will Hunting, Mrs. Doubtfire, Aladdin, Dead Poets Society and Good Morning, Vietnam, Williams’ illustrious career included two Emmy Awards, five Grammys and six Golden Globes. Yet, none of his success could ever compare to the pride he felt for his children, especially his oldest daughter, Zelda Rae Williams.

Born on July 31, 1989 and named after the popular Nintendo video game series (which she also likes to play), Zelda is an avid athlete and gamer who followed her father into acting in 1994 when she made her debut in In Search of Dr. Seuss at the age of five. Today, the 26-year-old has lent her voice to animated series like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Legend of Korra as well as video games like King’s Quest. Most recently, she’ll debut in season three of Transformers: Robots in Disguise and will star as Drew Reeves in the supernatural series Dead of Summer.

#36 – Jack Scott Ramsay (Gordon Ramsay)

Jack-Scott-Ramsay-Gordon-Ramsay
“His food is so frozen, it just started singing ‘Let it Go!’” Known for his brutally honest criticism and Scottish accent, Gordon Ramsay knows his way around the kitchen after spending his early career running top-notch restaurants before making his way to television. These days, the 49-year-old celebrity chef can be seen on reality shows like Hell’s Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares and MasterChef as he builds his reputation as one of the most competitive chefs in the industry. But, if you think he’s tough in the kitchen, can you imagine him as a parent?

Married to Cayetana Hutcheson, a schoolteacher, since 1996, Ramsay and Tana have four children together including 16-year-old twins Jack and Holly. Recently, Jack has joined his father in the spotlight and has been seen in a series of photos across social media begging many to ask if he’s looking for a career in the kitchen or on the red carpet. Whatever the future holds, Ramsay is more concerned about his children’s life at home and admits that he often pays Jack $100 each week to make sure that his oldest daughter, 17-year-old Megan, doesn’t have any new boyfriends lurking around when he’s not home.

#35 – Hayley Hasselhoff (David Hasselhoff & Pamela Bach)

Hayley-Hasselhoff-David-Hasselhoff-and-Pamela-Bach
Turning heads with his movie star good looks as Dr. Snapper Foster on The Young and The Restless, David Hasselhoff truly found fame as the star of the cult hit series Knight Rider in the 1980s before donning his red swim trunks as Mitch Buchannon on Baywatch from 1989 to 2000. Before long, “The Hoff” was an international sex symbol and the most watched man on television whose marriage to his Knight Rider costar Pamela Bach did little to dissuade his millions of female fans from dreaming of him as their own knight in shining armor.

During their seven-year marriage from 1989 to 2006, Hasselhoff and Bach had two children together, the younger of whom is Hayley Hasselhoff. Much like her parents, Hayley has also gotten into acting and made her debut in 1999 on Baywatch before joining the rest of her family on their reality series The Hasselhoffs in 2010. Now 23 years old and working as a plus-sized model with Wilhelmina Models where she was named as the ambassador for Paris’s Pulp Fashion Week, fans can catch a glimpse of her off the runway later this month in Sharknado: The 4th Awakens.

#34 – Marcus Jordan (Michael Jordan)

Marcus-Jordan-Michael-Jordan
And it’s nothing but net! Praised as the greatest basketball player of all time, Michael “Air” Jordan was drafted in the first round of the 1984 NBA Draft by the Chicago Bulls where he spent the majority of his 15 seasons as a point guard before wrapping up his final two seasons with the Washington Wizards. Winning six NBA Championships and five MVP Awards in addition to reaching 14 NBA All Star Games, Jordan’s biggest fans for much of his early career were his first wife, Juanita, and their two sons, Jeffrey Michael and Marcus James.

As a child, Marcus was pressured to follow in his dad’s size 13 shoes and did so willingly in high school where he excelled enough to earn a basketball scholarship to the University of Central Florida where he was named to both the Conference USA All-Freshman Team and the Second All-Conference Team. However, life on the court wasn’t all the hype for Marcus who left after his third season to focus on his coursework. With his decision obviously paying off, the 25-year-old Jordan heir recently opened the Trophy Room shoe store on May 23, 2016 (in reference to his father’s jersey numbers) at Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

#33 – Joseph Baena (Arnold Schwarzenegger)

Joseph-Baena-Arnold-Schwarzenegger
“Hasta la vista, Baby!” Having already visited Sylvester Stallone and his son, the next action star on our list is Arnold Schwarzenegger whose influence reaches well beyond Hollywood. Known for starring in films like The Terminator, Predator and Total Recall, the former world-famous bodybuilder took his talents to the political arena where he served as the 38th Governor of California from 2003 to 2011. While most of us can quote Arnie directly from one of his many movies or speeches, the oft-described simpleton had a secret that shocked even his most loyal fans—an 18-year-old son named Joseph.

Born on October 2, 1997 days after Maria Shriver gave birth to Schwarzenegger’s son Christopher, Joseph Baena is the son Arnie hid from the world for years after having an affair with his housekeeper. News broke by the time Baena was a teen just as paparazzi bombarded the youngster desperate for photographs of The Governator’s secret son. Having since graduated from high school in 2015, Joseph is now trying to live a normal life as a student at Pepperdine University but recent sightings of him with his dad leave many to believe the two are finally enjoying a father-son relationship after all these years.

#32 – Dominik Cristina Garcia-Lorido (Andy Garcia)

Dominik-Cristina-Garcia-Lorido-Andy-Garcia
“…You are a man of finance and politics. These things I don’t understand.” Easily one of the most talented Cuban actors in Hollywood, Andy Garcia rose to prominence in 1990 for his Oscar-nominated performance as Vincent Mancini in The Godfather Part III. By then, the offers started rolling in for blockbusters like the Oceans series, The Untouchables, The Lost City and, most recently, the Ghostbusters reboot. In the midst of all his success, Garcia has even managed to keep the home fires burning with his wife Marivi of 34 years, proving he really does have it all.

And speaking of having it all… The eldest of Garcia’s four children, the gorgeous Dominik Garcia-Lorido dreamt of becoming a dancer as a child and spent the majority of her childhood twirling and tapping in a Los Angeles dance studio. In 1995, she made her acting debut in Steal Big Steal Little but waited another decade before making her major film debut oppo site her dad in The Lost City, a film he also directed. Since then, the 32-year-old’s acting career has been hit or miss with appearances in the 2012 series Magic City and the 2015 film Wild Card.

#31 – Gia Mantegna (Joe Mantegna)

Gia-Mantegna-Joe-Mantegna
No, we aren’t talking about former NFL quarterback Joe Montana. Instead, we’re talking about Joe Mantegna of the Windy City whose career in Hollywood spans nearly 50 years and includes everything from voice acting to producing, writing and directing. Joining fellow actor Andy Garcia for The Godfather Part III in 1990, Mantegna has starred in dozens of hits over the years but is best known for his work on television as FBI Agent David Rossi on Criminal Minds. Heck, you may even recall hearing Mantegna’s voice over the past 25 years as Fat Tony in The Simpsons. Small world, isn’t it?

Thankfully, neither Mantegna nor his 26-year-old daughter Gia look anything like Fat Tony—now that would be a tragedy! All joking aside, Gia trained as a ballerina and gymnast as a child and is also a skilled pianist, saxophonist and singer. She made her acting debut at 13 years old in Uncle Nino and went on to appear in 13 Going on 30, Criminal Minds and The Secret Life of the American Teenager. While she’s had more success on television lately as the star in Gigantic and as Devin Levin in The Middle, she’s also appeared in films like The Prince and Ask Me Anything.

#30 – Cassidy Gifford (Kathie Lee & Frank Gifford)

Cassidy-Gifford-Kathie-Lee-and-Frank-Gifford
Cassidy Gifford hit the jackpot of good genes! Meeting on the set of Good Morning America in 1983, it was love at first sight for the late NFL legend and sports commentator Frank Gifford and talk show host Kathie Lee. The former 1956 NFL Champion and Pro Football Hall of Famer truly scored the touchdown of a lifetime when he married Kathie Lee in 1986 just as her career blossomed on Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee. By the 1990s, the newlyweds grew to a family of four with the birth of their son Cody and daughter Cassidy.

Taking after her mother in terms of looks, the 22-year-old Cassidy is no stranger to the spotlight and made her acting debut in 2005 on an episode of That’s So Raven. Since then, she’s appeared in The Suite Life on Deck and Blue Bloods in addition to making her film debut in Adventures of Serial Buddies in 2011. Recently named by Esquire as one of the “18 Beautiful Women America Won’t Be Able to Resist,” Cassidy is slowly making a name for herself on the silver screen with her latest work including God’s Not Dead and The Gallows.

#29 – Lily Mo Sheen (Kate Beckinsale & Michael Sheen)

Lily-Mo-Sheen-Kate-Beckinsale-and-Michael-Sheen
She’s not the Sheen you’re most likely thinking of! Rather than calling Charlie or Martin Sheen “Dad,” Lily Mo Sheen is actually the daughter of actors Kate Beckinsale and Michael Sheen. Beckinsale—who is best known for films like Pearl Harbor, Serendipity, Underworld and Click—had an eight-year relationship with the stage actor and star of The Queen from 1995 until 2003. Four years into their relationship, she gave birth to her only daughter, Lily Mo, and presumed Sheen would propose but a trip down the aisle simply wasn’t in the cards for the famous couple.

Now 17 years old and the spitting image of her mother, Lily Mo never had to endure the painful heartache of a high profile and nasty breakup when her parents split up. Instead, Beckinsale ensured her relationship with Sheen remained intact and recently said, “He’s really dear, close family…I really love him a lot.” So, with her parents getting along like old friends, it seems like Lily Mo has an incredible life hanging out with her famous parents and knowing that the sky is the limit when it comes to her plans for the future. After all, acting is in her blood!

#28 – Dylan Penn (Sean Penn & Robin Wright)

Dylan-Penn-Sean-Penn-and-Robin-Wright
Whether you love him or hate him, there’s no doubt that Sean Penn is one of the most talented actors and directors in Hollywood who has come quite a long way since making his acting debut on Little House on the Prairie in 1974. Already divorced from Madonna by the 1990s, the Mystic River star moved in with actress Robin Wright (House of Cards and The Princess Bride) months before Wright gave birth to their daughter, Dylan Frances, in 1991. After the birth of their son Hopper in 1993 and years of separations and reconciliations, Penn and Wright divorced in 2010.

Moving to New York City after high school, Dylan had to grind her teeth just like any other teenager hoping to make it big in the Big Apple and took on a series of odd jobs including delivering pizzas, waitressing and interning at an advertising agency. In 2013, Dylan found the exposure she had long been searching for when her casual relationship with actor Robert Pattison made her a tabloid target and launched her modeling career. Now 25 years old and modeling for companies like The Gap and magazines like GQ and W, she’s even trying her hand at acting in the independent film circuit.

#27 – Chance King (Larry King)

Chance-King-Larry-King
“Tonight on Larry King Live!” Spending the last 60 years interviewing some of the most popular and controversial figures in the world, Larry King has long established himself as an award-winning television and radio host dedicated to sharing the news with his audience. Despite his incredible career, however, one thing that often outshines King’s journalism is the fact that he’s been married a total of eight times with his current marriage to Shawn Southwick lasting nearly 20 years. That’s exactly why it comes as a surprise that King has only four children, one of whom is Chance King.

With his dad on national television, few were shocked in 2009 when the 10-year-old Chance was given his own television spot as the host of a baseball show called Kid Pitch tailored for young audiences. Although the show was short-lived, Chance gained plenty of exposure but it wasn’t enough to seal his fate as a star. Now 17 years old and living like a normal teenager with the occasion walk down the red carpet with his dear old dad, there’s a good chance (no pun intended) that he’ll make his way back to the host’s seat one day!

#26 – Annie Starke (Glenn Close)

Annie-Starke-Glenn-Close
Praised as one of the most versatile and talented actresses of her generation, Glenn Close launched her career as a New York stage actress in the 1970s before making her film debut in The World According to Garp in 1982. Over the last 34 years, she has earned six Oscar nominations as well as three Emmy and three Tony Awards for her work in films like Fatal Attraction and Dangerous Liaisons as well as in stage productions like Sunset Boulevard. As for her personal life, the 69-year-old actress has been married three times but has only one child, a daughter named Annie, with producer John Starke.

With both of her parents in the business, Annie made her acting debut with an appearance in her mom’s 2001 film South Pacific when she was just 13 years old. Spending the next few years laying low and focusing on school, fans wondering if Close’s daughter would follow her to Hollywood had their questions answered when Annie appeared in the 2011 film Albert Nobbs. Today, the 28-year-old is back at it again on the silver screen with Bastards and We Don’t Belong Here set to release sometime this year.

#25 – Sophie Von Haselberg (Bette Midler)

Sophie-Von-Haselberg-Bette-Midler
“I can fly higher than an eagle, cause you are the wind beneath my wings…” Like the legendary Glenn Close, Bette Midler made a name for herself on the stage and on the screen as a renowned singer, songwriter, actress, producer and comedian. Racking up dozens of awards over the years including three Grammys, four Golden Globes and a Tony Award, Midler is one of the most successful women in the industry when it comes to her career and her personal life. Why? She’s one of a few stars who’s been married for over 30 years after saying “I do” with artist Martin von Haselberg in 1984.

Sophie, Midler’s only daughter, was born in 1986 and initially had little interest in acting after enrolling at Yale University where she studied sociology and East Asian studies. After spending a year working at an ad agency in China, Sophie returned to Yale in 2011 to study drama and made her theater debut in New York City in 2014. A year later, she made her film debut in Woody Allen’s Irrational Man that left Allen impressed enough to say, “She’s wonderful. She’s the spitting image of her mother…She projects intelligence because she’s intelligent.” Bette certainly must be proud!

#24 – Francesca Eastwood (Clint Eastwood)

Francesca-Eastwood-Clint-Eastwood
“Go ahead, make my day.” A Hollywood icon and the embodiment of masculinity, Clint Eastwood found mainstream success as the Man with No Name in a series of spaghetti Westerns throughout the 1960s before branching out in the 1970s as “Dirty Harry.” Now 86 years old, Eastwood has been behind the camera almost as much as in front of it with movies like Million Dollar Baby and Gran Torino that have built his impressive $375 million net worth. So why doesn’t he retire? With at least seven (and possibly more) children, Eastwood has plenty of mouths to feed.

The second youngest of Eastwood’s brood is 22-year-old Francesca Eastwood whose mom is actress Frances Fisher (Titanic, Laws of Attraction and The Host). Dabbling in acting over the years after making her first appearance on the reality series Mrs. Eastwood & Company in 2012, Francesca received death threats and widespread criticism after burning a $100,000 purse on the show. Now sticking primarily to modeling and building her reputation as a socialite (obviously with plenty of money to buy expensive bags), Francesca is a bit of a loose cannon and even eloped with Jordan Feldstein—Jonah Hill’s brother—to Las Vegas only to have the marriage annulled a week later.

#23 – Corinne Bishop (Jamie Foxx)

Corinne-Bishop-Jamie-Foxx
Whether he’s on the stage singing, behind the mic doing stand-up or on the silver screen, the multi-talented Jamie Foxx has been wowing audiences as an A-lister for over two decades. Proving his talents as an artist with four chart-topping albums and a Grammy Award, Foxx has released hit singles like “Blame It” and “Unpredictable” while giving award-winning performances in films like Ray, Collateral and Django Unchained. However, amid all of his success, Foxx has gone above and beyond to keep his personal life private over the years to protect his daughters, Corinne Bishop and Annalise.

The eldest of Foxx’s daughters, Corinne was born in 1994 and has practically grown up on the red carpet after joining her father for several premieres and award ceremonies over the years. However, after her last appearance in 2005 at 11 years old, Corinne stunned the world with her incredible beauty as she took the stage in 2016 as Miss Golden Globe. Now 22 years old and using her dad’s last name as an aspiring model and actress, we have no doubt that we’ll see much more of the beautiful Corinne in the future!

#22 – Rainey Qualley (Andie MacDowell)

Rainey-Qualley-Andie-MacDowell
Making a splash in Hollywood in the late 1980s with Sex, Lies and Videotape, Andie MacDowell found even more success in the 1990s opposite A-listers like Bill Murray, Hugh Grant and John Travolta in Groundhog Day, Four Weddings and a Funeral and Michael. Also modeling at the time for brands like L’Oreal and Gap, it wasn’t long before MacDowell caught the eye of rancher and fellow model Paul Qualley. But, as her career faded so did her marriage and, after 13 years together and three children, McDowell filed for divorce in 1999.

Among MacDowell’s three children is Rainey Qualley who, unlike her younger sister, didn’t immediately follow her mother into acting. Instead, the 25-year-old has paved her own path to stardom in the country music industry with hit singles like “Me and Johnny Cash” and “Turn Me on Like the Radio.” That’s not to say, however, she hasn’t acted. The spitting image of her mother, Rainey appeared in the final season of Mad Men as well as in films like Falcon Song but her real love is in Nashville where she’s known for her heartfelt country tunes.

#21 – Brielle Biermann (Kim Zolciak)

Brielle-Biermann-Kim-Zolciak
Chances are if you’re a fan of reality television, the name Kim Zolciak of The Real Housewives of Atlanta definitely rings a bell. First appearing on the series in 2008 while working on her country music album, Zolciak found fame on the show thanks to her high profile relationship with Atlanta Falcons football star Kroy Biermann. Marrying Biermann in 2011 and landing a spinoff series called Don’t Be Tardy… that chronicled their life together, Zolciak and her two daughters—Brielle and Ariana—settled in with Biermann at their Georgia estate where their family has since grown by four.

After Biermann officially adopted Brielle and her sister in 2013, Brielle took her stepdad’s last name and has managed to build an even bigger following on Twitter these days as a 19-year-old reality television star. Currently in the midst of plastic surgery rumors regarding her changing looks, Brielle spends most of her days flaunting selfies and photos of her latest boyfriend who her mom says they “actually adore.” As with most celebrity teenage love stories, this seems like a fleeting romance to say the least!

#20 – Ella Travolta (John Travolta & Kelly Preston)

Ella-Travolta-John-Travolta-and-Kelly-Preston
From Welcome Back, Kotter to Saturday Night Fever and Grease, John Travolta has been one of Hollywood’s favorite leading men for over 40 years with dozens of hits including Pulp Fiction, Swordfish, Wild Hogs and Hairspray that have sealed his fate as one of the industry’s finest. Often considered a heartthrob in his younger days (after all, he can sing and dance!), Travolta broke hearts around the world in 1991 when he married actress Kelly Preston (of Jerry Maguire and Twins) and started a family.

Believe it or not, Travolta’s only daughter, Ella Bleu, is already 16 years old. Recently appearing on Ellen with her dad where the resemblance was uncanny, Ella made her acting debut in Not Under My Roof in 2001 and appeared alongside her dad in Old Dogs in 2009. For years, she also ran a website for her fans but stopped updating the site in 2010 after the death of her older brother Jett and the announcement of the birth of her younger brother, Benjamin. Will she make her way back to the site or even the silver screen? Only time will tell!

#19 – Zoe Kravitz (Lenny Kravitz & Lisa Bonet)

Zoe-Kravitz-Lenny-Kravitz-and-Lisa-Bonet
“Oh I want to get away. I want to fly away!” Two-time Grammy Award winning artist Lenny Kravitz has made incredible waves in the music industry over the last 20 years with hits like “Are You Gonna Go My Way,” “Fly Away” and “Again.” But, is his personal life as sexy as his life in the spotlight? Turning to music to cope with his parent’s divorce in the late 1980s, Kravitz befriended Lisa Bonet of The Cosby Show and, after two years, eloped to Las Vegas in 1987. A year later, Bonet gave birth to their daughter Zoe before amicably divorcing her best friend in 1993.

Well on her way to becoming just as famous as her father, Zoe Kravitz is now 27 years old and already has some pretty stellar acting credits to her name. She played Angel Salvador in X-Men: First Class and Christina in The Divergent Series as well as Toast in Mad Max: Fury Road. This year alone she’s starred in Big Little Lies and Portlandia while also proving to have her father’s singing chops as the lead singer of the electropop trio Lolawolf.

#18 – Ava Phillippe (Reese Witherspoon & Ryan Phillippe)

Ava-Phillippe-Reese-Witherspoon-and-Ryan-Phillippe
Throughout the late 1990s and well into the new millennium, one of America’s favorite couples and pair of Hollywood sweethearts were actors Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe. The Legally Blonde and Sweet Home Alabama star met Phillippe (of I Know What You Did Last Summer and Cruel Intentions) at her 21st birthday party in 1997 and was engaged a year later before tying the knot in June 1999. Months later, Witherspoon gave birth to their daughter Ava in September 1999 and welcomed a son, Deacon Reese, in 2003 before divorcing in 2007.

Out of all the children on our list, Ava Phillippe takes the crown for being the spitting image of her mother in what many call Reese 2.0. To add to the mass hysteria over the youngster’s beauty, the 17-year-old is usually seen traipsing around town with her mom, which has created even more hype and made her a popular target for paparazzi desperate to photograph Reese’s mini-me. And to think this young high school student just might be another Hollywood sweetheart in the making!

#17 – Ava Sambora (Heather Locklear & Richie Sambora)

Ava-Sambora-Heather-Locklear-and-Richie-Sambora
Speaking of lookalikes and Avas, next on our list is Heather Locklear and Richie Sambora’s one and only daughter, Ava Sambora. Well known for her roles on T.J. Hooker, Melrose Place and Spin City as well as her marriage to Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, Locklear divorced Lee in 1993 and found herself walking back down the aisle again in 1994 when she married Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora. Three years later, the couple welcomed Ava into the world but eventually divorced in 2007 after 13 years of marriage.

Now 18 years old and obviously taking after her mother with her stunning beauty, Ava has built a massive following online since launching her modeling career with the prestigious New York Models agency. Yet, she still has her heart set on the silver screen. Starring in Summer Break 3 on YouTube and in Disney’s Good Luck Charlie, Ava made her first feature film debut in Judd Apatow’s This is 40 in 2012 and is well on her way to becoming just as big of a star as her mother, if not bigger!

#16 – Georgia May Jagger (Mick Jagger & Jerry Hall)

Georgia-May-Jagger-Mick-Jagger-and-Jerry-Hall
“I can’t get no satisfaction! ‘Cause I try and I try and I try and I try!” If there was a Mount Rushmore of rock stars, Mick Jagger’s face would most likely be on it. The lead singer of the Rolling Stones, Jagger has belted out hits like “Paint It Black,” “Satisfaction” and “Gimme Shelter” for the last 50 years all while enjoying a series of relationships with models like Jerry Hall, fashion designers like L’Wren Scott and ballerinas like Melanie Hamrick. And, while he’s only been married and divorced once, he has a total of eight children including the beautiful Georgia May.

Joining a long list of models, Georgia May followed her mother Jerry Hall to the runway when she signed with Independent Models in 2008 at 16 years old. Now working with TESS Model Management, the 24-year-old has appeared in dozens of campaigns for big names like Miu Miu, Versace, H&M and Chanel. So just how big of a star is she? Her legendary last name and her stunning beauty landed her a spot in the closing ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics where she represented British fashion alongside Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell. Now that’s what you call rubbing elbows with the greats!

#15 – John Lowe (Rob Lowe)

John-Lowe-Rob-Lowe
Despite the fact that he’s old enough to be a grandfather at 52 years old, Rob Lowe certainly doesn’t look the part. Enjoying early success as part of Brat Pack films like St. Elmo’s Fire and About Last Night…, Lowe’s popularity in Hollywood has fluctuated over the years but he always manages to land back in the industry’s good graces with series like Parks & Recreation, The Grinder and The West Wing. One thing that hasn’t changed over the years, however, is his love for his wife, Sheryl, of 25 years and their two sons, Edward and John Owen.

Preferring to be called “Johnny” these days, the 21-year-old has been his dad’s trusty workout partner over the last few years (at least according to his social media account). Although he initially showed very little interest in acting and opted to enroll at Stanford University, Johnny bit the bullet and made a guest appearance on his dad’s series The Grinder in 2015. As for Rob’s reaction to his son following in his footsteps, Rob said, “Well, it’s like a one-time thing. I’m not letting him drop out of college. No. He’s interning.” Sounds like that discussion is over!

#14 – Alexa Ray Joel (Billy Joel & Christie Brinkley)

Alexa-Ray-Joel-Billy-Joel-and-Christie-Brinkley
“Uptown girl, she’s been living in her uptown world…” Undeniably one of the oddest love stories in the entertainment industry, somehow Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley’s relationship just seemed to work. The legendary singer and pianist met Brinkley on the set of the video for his hit single “Uptown Girl.” At the time, Brinkley was a well-known supermodel who was wooed by Joel’s charm and followed him down the aisle in March 1985 months before welcoming their only daughter, Alexa Ray, in December. Nearly a decade later, the power couple went their separate ways.

Named after Ray Charles and inspired by her dad’s musical artistry, the 30-year-old Alexa Ray is a talented singer, songwriter and pianist but has done more modeling and acting lately after struggling to find mainstream success with her early releases. Succeeding her mother as the face of Prell shampoo, Alexa released her last single—a remake of her dad’s hit “Just the Way You Are”—in 2013 for an advertising campaign with The Gap. As for her most recent work, she’s set to make a silver screen appearance in The Thinning in 2016 with more music on the horizon.

#13 – Kaia Gerber (Cindy Crawford)

Kaia-Gerber-Cindy-Crawford
Speaking of daughters and supermodels, perhaps the most famous supermodel of all time is the gorgeous Cindy Crawford. Once ranked as the highest paid model in the world throughout the 1990s, Crawford is known for her trademark mole that has graced the covers of hundreds of magazines like Vogue, W, People and Cosmopolitan and endorsed every brand imaginable from Pepsi to Oscar de la Renta. And, while women envy her sultry beauty at 50 years old, men can’t help but envy Rande Gerber, Crawford’s husband of 18 years and the father of her two children, Pressley and Kaia.

Only 14 years old and already the talk of the town for sharing her mother’s supermodel beauty, many believe that Kaia will be the next big name in modeling after she stunned the world by appearing on the cover of Vogue Paris alongside her mother. Can you imagine that kind of fame in junior high? With only a matter of time before modeling agencies start lining up at her door, it’s safe to say that Kaia has the best negotiator in her corner after her mom brought in over $100 million throughout a stellar 30-year-career while becoming the icon of American beauty.

#12 – Chloe Rose Lattanzi (Olivia Newton-John)

Chloe-Rose-Lattanzi-Olivia-Newton-John
“I love you, I honestly love you…” While younger music fans may not recognize her music, Oliva Newton-John is one of the best-selling artists in the world whose hits like “I Honestly Love You” and “Have You Never Been Mellow” climbed to the top of the charts in the 1970s. If that doesn’t ring a bell, the four-time Grammy Award-winner starred opposite John Travolta in Grease in what became one of the most successful soundtracks in Hollywood history. As for her personal life, the silver screen “Sandy” married actor Matt Lattanzi in 1984 but, after 11 years of marriage and the birth of their daughter Chloe, they went their separate ways in 1995.

Making her acting debut in an Australian soap opera at seven years old in 1993, Chloe Rose doesn’t enjoy acting as much as her parents and instead has chosen to focus on building a career in the music industry. Now 30 years old and known for singles like “Wings and a Gun” as well as teaming up with her mom on songs like “You Have to Believe,” fans were taken aback by Chloe’s appearance in 2015 when she appeared on Dancing with the Stars looking almost unrecognizable after a few obvious plastic surgery botches! Looks like someone needs to stay away from the knife!

#11 – Bella Hadid (Yolanda Foster)

Bella-Hadid-Yolanda-Foster
While people in the United States didn’t know Yolanda Foster (now Hadid) by name when she was living in the Netherlands, it was only a matter of time before she earned star status after appearing on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Married to real estate developer Mohamed Hadid from 1994 to 2000, Yolanda married David Foster in 2011 only to separate and announce their impending divorce in 2015. Changing her name back to Hadid to match that of her three children, Yolanda’s two daughters—Bella and Gigi—just might be more famous than their mother.

Debuting on the runway at the age of 16, Bella is one of the most popular models in the industry after signing with IMG Models in 2014. At only 19 years old and already named Model of the Year and one of the Top 50 models in the world by Models.com, Bella has appeared on dozens of magazine covers including Seventeen, Harper’s Bazaar and Elle in addition to being named the new ambassador of Dior makeup. Obviously more than just a pretty face as a skilled equestrian, Bella even planned on attending the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro before Lyme disease took her out of the competition.

#10 – Rafferty Law (Jude Law)


Despite sounding like a distinguished attorney’s office, Rafferty Law is in fact the eldest son of the award-winning actor Jude Law. With his father in the spotlight for films like Cold Mountain, Road to Perdition and The Holiday, the world saw a lot of Rafferty at a young age when Jude was still married to Sadie Frost. When the two split up after six years of marriage in 2003, Rafferty was not seen nearly as much but has returned to the spotlight since his father announced that he and his ex, Catherine Harding, were expecting another child.

Rafferty was 18 years old at the time the news came out about his step-sibling and, as the public saw the adult Rafferty, the resemblance to his dad was striking. Of course, when you look like Jude Law, you better make some money out of it, which is exactly what Rafferty is doing after launching his career as a model and musician. While many questioned his decision not to go into acting like his father, it’s safe to say that he’ll do just fine whatever he decides.

#9 – Hailie Jade Scott Mathers (Eminem)


“But then I see my baby, suddenly I’m not crazy…” When we first heard the name Hailie Mathers, we knew never to come near her unless we were prepared to answer to her dad. What else can you expect when your dad is none other than the hugely popular rap sensation, Eminem? With many singles referencing her like “Hailie’s Song,” Eminem fans knew the strong connection and love that he had early on for his daughter. However, despite his adoration (or perhaps because of it), few photos or videos of her childhood were ever shared.

Just as Hailie turned 18, she emerged into the limelight when she grabbed headlines by being named her school’s Homecoming Queen. The world had no idea what to expect from Eminem’s precious daughter, but was stunned to find a gorgeous young woman whose face has since taken over the internet. Graduating at the top of her high school class in 2014, Hailie is now pursuing her interests in psychology and entrepreneurship at Michigan State University. As far as if she’s dating anyone, we’ll leave that up to Hailie to answer!

#8 – Maude Apatow (Leslie Mann & Judd Apatow)


Although a name like Maude makes us think of a little old lady wearing a floral dress and walking with a cane, that’s far from the truth when it comes to director Judd Apatow and actress Leslie Mann’s 18-year-old daughter. Maude landed her first appearance in film as the daughter of Mann and Paul Rudd’s characters in the 2007 hit Knocked Up. And, even though she had some of the funniest lines in the movie, the majority of us failed to realize that she was actually the director’s daughter!

Still reaping the benefits of having an award-winning director as a dad by appearing in his films even today, Maude is branching out into other projects as well after appearing as Cleo in the HBO series Girls in 2015 and as Alexandra in Other People. When she’s not busy acting, however, she’s just a regular teen as the toddler-turned-movie-star spends her free time tweeting to her large fan base and contributing to Zooey Deschanel’s website Hello Giggles. Was it really that long ago that she was a kid on Knocked Up? Yikes! Now we feel old!

#7 – Sailor Cook (Christie Brinkley)


Making her second appearance on our list, Christie Brinkley divorced Billy Joel in 1994 and was briefly married to Richard Taubman before tying the knot with Peter Cook in 1996. Two years later, Brinkley gave birth to her second daughter, Sailor Cook, who has recently announced her plans to follow in her mother’s footsteps after the high schooler confirmed that she’s already landed modeling gigs with Teen Vogue in addition to a commercial appearance for a notable lip gloss company.

Much like Maude Apatow, Sailor is also keeping busy by making a name for herself on Twitter where she shows off her personality (and affection for Frankie Muniz, of all people). Despite her dreams of becoming a model, however, she was forced to put her plans on hold after she was turned down for being too young at 15 years old. Good news finally came a week after her 16th birthday when she was accepted into the famed IMG company leading many to believe that she’ll have an outstanding career much like her mother’s.

#6 – Emerson Tenney (Teri Hatcher)


A big name in the 1980s and 1990s thanks to hits like Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Teri Hatcher reemerged as a star when she was cast on the hit ABC show Desperate Housewives in the new millennium. During Hatcher’s nine-year marriage to actor Jon Tenney, she gave birth to Emerson Rose in 1998. While we saw Emerson frequently as a young child, she disappeared for about a decade as her mom took a break from the spotlight. It wasn’t until Emerson and her mom hit the streets of Los Angeles that the world finally got to see the teenage beauty.

Already taller than her mother by the age of 15, the now 19-year-old Emerson is obviously doing very well for herself these days. When Hatcher was asked whether or not her daughter would follow her into acting, she was careful not to rule anything out and said that there were no present plans but it might be something to look forward to down the road if, and only if, Emerson is interested. After seeing what happens to child stars, we can’t blame Hatcher for not wanting to rush Emerson into stardom.

#5 – Bindi Irwin (Steve Irwin)


Who could ever forget the passionate animal-lover Steve Irwin, his wife Terri and their daughter Bindi from the hit show The Crocodile Hunter? Named after one of her father’s favorite crocodiles, the young Aussie grew up in front of the camera and amid the world’s most exotic animals as her father shared his love of work with her up until his tragic death on September 4, 2006 when he was struck in the chest by a stingray.

Because of her father’s tragic death, the 18-year-old Bindi has continued to live her life to the fullest with a promising career ahead of her. Already involved in acting, she’s hosted Bindi’s Bootcamp and has appeared in an episode of Curious George in addition to working with her mother on opening a new SeaWorld exhibit. Most recently, Bindi left viewers in tears when she put on her dancing shoes for Dancing with the Stars in 2015 and took home the coveted mirror-ball trophy after 11 weeks of incredible, jaw-dropping performances.

#4 – Maya Hawke (Uma Thurman & Ethan Hawke)


Let’s be honest, who hasn’t thanked or cursed their parents for what is known as the “genetic lottery?” We have no doubt that Maya Hawke is grateful to have the parents that she does, because there is no way that she came up short in the genetics department with a mother like Uma Thurman and a father like Ethan Hawke. With their love story unfolding on the set of the 1997 film Gattaca, Hawke and Thurman married in 1998 and welcomed two children into the world before divorcing in 2005 after seven years of marriage.

So far, there are no plans in the works for Maya to become an actress like either of her parents, which is a shame considering she could easily pull it off if she wanted. Don’t believe us? Do you remember what Uma Thurman looked like in the midst of her youth? Maya looks exactly like that today, which is why we’re certain that finding work won’t be a problem for her regardless of whether she chooses to model, act, waitress or run for office one day.

#3 – Jaden Smith (Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith)


Yet another kid who hit the genetic lottery in terms of parents is Jaden Smith, the son of award-winning actor and musician Will Smith and actress Jada Pinkett Smith. With his dad as the famed “Fresh Prince” (of Bel-Air), Jaden set his sights on a career in the spotlight early on and was thrilled to make his first cameo in the 2002 film Men in Black II. Will, however, wanted to give his son more time to explore his other options and made the youngster wait another four years before returning to the big screen where he gave an award-winning performance opposite his dad in The Pursuit of Happyness.

Since then, the 18-year-old has appeared in films like The Day the Earth Stood Still and The Karate Kid before reuniting with his dad in the 2013 flop After Earth. Managing to recover as true Hollywood stars do, Jaden has launched his music career in addition to his own clothing brand called MSFTSrep. As you might’ve guessed, he also has one of the most popular and fascinating Twitter feeds of anyone on our list where he’s known for lines like “How can mirrors be real if our eyes aren’t real?” Instant classic.

#2 – Lourdes Leon (Madonna)


“’Cause we’re living in a material world and I am a material girl!” With her mom praised as the “Queen of Pop” and known for hits like “Papa Don’t Preach,” “Like a Virgin” and “Material Girl,” Lourdes Leon has big shoes to fill. Between highly publicized marriages to celebrities Sean Penn and Guy Ritchie, Madonna dated Carlos Leon from 1995 to 1997 during which time she struggled with a complicated pregnancy while filming Evita before giving birth to her daughter, Lourdes, on October 14, 1996.

Frequently pictured with her famous mom throughout her childhood, the 20-year-old Lourdes is the eldest of her three siblings and is currently enrolled at her mom’s alma mater—the University of Michigan—but that isn’t all she shares with the Queen of Pop. Now dabbling in modeling under the Stella McCartney campaign while continuing her study of performing arts, Lourdes is slowly making a name for herself after turning heads with her unique sense of style and growing tattoo collection. We can’t imagine where she might’ve gotten that!

#1 – Lily-Rose Depp (Johnny Depp)


“Why is the rum gone?” Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp just might think twice if he has to ask his 17-year-old daughter, Lily-Rose, that same question. During his 14-year relationship (from 1998 to 2012) with French actress and singer Vanessa Paradis, whom he met on the set of The Ninth Gate, Depp was given a gift far better than any Academy Award or Oscar when his daughter, Lily-Rose Melody, was born in 1999 followed by his son, John Jack Christopher, in 2002.

Like so many other children on our list, Lily-Rose also followed her father straight to Hollywood where she made her acting debut in the 2014 film Tusk at only 15 years old. She then launched her modeling career with a campaign for the Australian magazine Oyster before debuting in 2015 as a model for Chanel. Today, the 17-year-old has three projects in the works including Yoga Hosers, The Dancer and Planetarium. Will her career ever surpass her father’s? That’s a tall order for any celebrity daughter, if you ask us!
