Like mother, like daughter. Like father, like son. People absolutely love gawking at celeb kids. The gene pool is exquisite and it’s always interesting seeing how the kids of famous celebs turn out – will they get their parents’ good looks? Will they get their talent? Will they be as successful?!
So, for anyone who failed biology in high school — this article is essentially genetics 101. You heard that right — you can read online magazines about celebrities and have it make you smarter. Who said you can’t learn and gossip at the same time? Let’s take a peek at some of Hollywood’s finest and their offspring!
Maggie McGraw – Faith Hill
Country music’s favorite power couple is none other than Faith Hill and Tim McGraw. Their love story is as fairytale-like as T-Swizzle’s hit track and are both celebrity country music stars! Hill is not only blindingly gorgeous, but she also has a voice that would make any man melt.
It seems that her genes are pretty strong – we were all stunned when her daughter Maggie accompanied her father to the American Music Awards! Their daughter hasn't showcased any musical aspirations just yet, but we’re sure she’s living it up what with the lifestyle her ma and pa have afforded!
Olivia Washington – Denzel Washington
Now when your father is a Hollywood hard hitter (that was a The Hurricane pun), and heartthrob, you’re bound to get quite a bit of attention. And when it’s none other than Denzel Washington, well, yeah, enough said. But it seems that Olivia Washington has some acting chops of her own, which she perhaps inherited from her extremely famous actor father.
Her career was launched in the film The Butler, followed by The Comedian and Mr. Robot. After graduating from college, she decided she wanted to follow in her father’s footsteps, but without any of his help or connections. Look, we admire her anti-nepotism stance, but let’s be real… people aren’t going to just overlook such a connection.
Joseph Baena – Arnold Schwarzenegger
There certainly aren’t many men built like the Austrian Oak himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger. But let us just say, the similarity between Arnold and his lovechild with employee Mildred Patricia Baena, is ridiculously close! For years, Arnold’s global repute has been strong, with his bodybuilding legacy and acting career, as well as his stint in politics! Whilst his fans adore him, he’s just human like the rest of us and makes mistakes.
He may not be proud of the affair, but surely, he can be proud of his handsome, strapping, young son. It seems that he definitely got his great muscle-building genetics from his father, with a physique that is reminiscent of his father’s back in the day. Pumping Iron Vol. 2?
Quinton A. Reynolds – Burt Reynolds
Hollywood has seen their fair share of Hollywood power couples, and when the very esteemed Burt Reynolds tied the knot for the second time, with Loni Anderson, the paparazzi had their cameras well and truly ready. However, after just five years, the pair separated in 1993. Together the couple had a son, Quinton A. Reynolds. A camera assistant, the young Reynolds preferred to sit behind the camera as opposed to in front of it like his famous father.
When Reynolds passed recently at age 82, there was some controversy as he intentionally left his son out of the will – but for good reason – he had already provided Quinton with a trust fund and didn’t need to include him in the will!
Sam Fox – Michael J. Fox
Wow. Sam certainly looks very much like ‘80s icon father, Michael J. Fox, known for his roles in Teen Wolf, Family Ties, and Back to the Future. Despite the fact that the older Fox has battled Parkinson’s disease since the early 90s, he continues to fight, making appearances on TV, in film, and on the red carpet!
Fox has four kids with Tracy Pollan, but we can’t get over the resemblance between Michael J. and Sam! Just look at them — they have got the same eyes, the same eyebrows, the same hair, and even the same smile. It's uncanny!
Karsen Liotta – Ray Liotta
The daughter of famed actor Ray Liotta seems to have taken a few pages out of her dad’s book, and is pursuing an acting career! A typical SoCal girl, Karsen had a blessed teenage life, heading to the beach and indulging in tacos. But of course, how could she say no to attending red carpets with her Goodfellas star father, Ray Liotta? As well as acting, Karsen enjoyed success modeling.
She owes her ethic and some of her success to her dad’s tutelage and wise words. The young Liotta says that she learned the most important things from her father when he was alive: “he taught me to do my homework, to always practice… that’s how you get where you want to be.” Amen, sister. Her mother, Michelle Grace, first met Ray Liotta on the set of The Rat Pack – and Karsen was born just a year later. Love it!
Zelda Williams – Robin Williams
Oh, man, who doesn’t miss Robin Williams? What a great light in our world. And only someone like Robin Williams would ever name their daughter after a character in a famous video game. His daughter, Zelda Robbins, had a hard time moving on from her father’s sudden death.
He was a stellar comedian and one of the best of our time, so it was heartbreaking for people all over the world to find out about his passing. We’re sure that Zelda carries her father’s spirit and humor with her always.
Jami Belushi – Jim Belushi
The lovely young daughter of According to Jim star, Jim Belushi, seems to have found herself also in showbiz! Jami or Jamison Bess Belushi took to acting, as well as singing and songwriting. On the stage from a young age (six years old in fact), Belushi is currently recording in the studio – we’ll be very curious to see what she comes up with!
In a fun twist though – and whilst she is quite talented with music — she mentioned to media outlets that she wants to open a candy store! How versatile of her. Watch out, Dylan Penn!
Dhani Harrison – George Harrison
The late George Harrison was the lead guitarist for the legendary rock band, The Beatles. The band member married Olivia Harrison in 1978 and together had a son, Dhani Harrison. Fortunately for Dhani, he did, in fact, inherit his dad’s talent, and pursued a career in music, becoming a multi-instrumentalist musician, amassing a nice fortune of his own along the way.
Check out these photos of Dhani and Georoge in their 20's. Dhani not only has his father's musical gift, but they look just like him as well! If they ever make a movie about the late Beatle's life, they know who to cast as the lead.
Ireland Baldwin – Kim Basinger
Kim Basinger, an actress and a former model, has earned quite a reputation for some of the work she has done, from being an actress in supporting roles to playing an actual Bond Girl. Ireland Baldwin, Kim’s daughter with Alec Baldwin, also has her own portfolio and it's quite similar to her mother’s. While her parents' mutual funds could support her living a carefree life, Ireland has put the fabulous looks she inherited to good use.
She now works as an actress and a model, but she is still quite young so it’ll take some time before she gains a repertoire that is comparable to those of her famous parents.
Stella McCartney – Linda McCartney
With her eponymous fashion line, Stella McCartney is certainly more than just the daughter of former Beatles member Paul McCartney. She has made a name for herself in her own right, with the likes of Anna Wintour seated front row at her shows in London. But of course, we’re sure the fact she’s linked to the famous Beatle has helped in some way!
Many think that Stella resembles her late mother Linda. Like her mom, she also stands for animal rights, using faux leather and faux fur instead of the real (and cruel) thing.
Jason Ritter – John Ritter
Can you find the differences? Yes, these photos are of two different people. Same genetics but still — different. John Ritter and his son Jason to be exact. Both of whom happen to be some of Hollywood’s most talented actors.
Most remember John Ritter from 8 Simple Rules and Three’s Company, while Jason is more familiar to the younger generation from shows like The Event and Joan of Arcadia. It's been more than a decade since the late John Ritter passed away, but we’re certain that he'd be very proud of his son's accomplishments.
Robin Thicke – Alan Thicke
As soon as Robin Thick hit the Hollywood scene people were wondering who he reminded them of, and as soon as you catch the last name, it's very obvious, as he resembles his father, Alan Thick. Alan was a famous actor, comedian, and game show host, and his son, Robin, is a talented singer, songwriter, and record producer.
If Robin wants to know how he'll look as he ages, he has to look no further than his father. Not bad if we must say. Decades will pass and he will be just as handsome.
Jake Hoffman – Dustin Hoffman
Take a look at this father-son duo that is both in show business: actor Dustin Hoffman, and son Jake Hoffman, who also looks very much like his father. What an honor it must be to learn from one of the best to ever do it. Dustin is famous for his versatile portrayals and emotionally vulnerable characters.
Jake, now a fully-formed adult, has appeared in a slew of movies and, much like his father, enjoys working behind the scenes as well, both as a writer and director. Growing up with his dad must feel like a life-long master class.
Hank Williams III – Hank Williams
The famous singer and musician, Hank Williams III certainly didn’t just pop out one day with a whole load of talent. Well, I mean, he kinda did, but also he got it from his papa, Hank Williams Jr., the grandson of Hank Williams before him, and the half-brother of Holly Williams. Confused? Same.
Anyway, Hank is a core member of the punk-metal band Assjack, as well as the drummer for the Arson Anthem, AND the bassist for Pantera. Those are some serious rock and metal chops! Seems it runs in the family, and hey, if you’re good at something, why not flaunt it?
Rafferty Law – Jude Law
Even if you don't know right off the top, just looking at Rafferty it's not hard to guess who his father is. Well, English actor Jude Law of course. His mother is also in the arts, she's the talented musician, Catherine Harding, Jude Law’s former girlfriend.
Law Jr. seems to be well on his way to achieving success in the entertainment world as a model and a singer. Although Rafferty is the lead vocals of a band called The Dirty Harry, his modeling career appears to be far more lucrative. So far he's worked with DKNY and Dolce & Gabbana.
Tracee Ellis Ross – Diana Ross
Diana Ross is an absolute legend. Her hits were at the top of the charts and have inspired lots of booty-shaking at Studio 54! And they still are! (Well, maybe not at Studio 54, but they definitely get a wiggle in our office.) Anyway, the gorgeous diva has an equally charming and talented daughter, Tracee Ellis Ross.
Making her mark in showbiz, Tracee is not only a wonderful actress and personality but quite the fashionista. These days she works on comedy, acting, hosting, and directing, and has been the recipient of a number of awards!
Cameron Douglas – Michael Douglas
It would be hard to convince most that this isn't a picture of Michael Douglas in different years. But you're wrong — the one on the left is actually his son, Cameron Douglas. Having a famous actor father isn't always enough to make it in Hollywood. In Cameron's case he did, in fact, try to pursue a career in acting, and managed to land some minor roles in movies like Mr. Nice Guy. But that was pretty much it.
It seems like he eventually gave up and took a different route. shockingly, back in 2010, he was arrested for possessing and distributing illegal substances. His father's money wasn't enough to keep him out of the clear, and in the end, Cameron was still incarcerated for 5 years. Ouch!
Joely Richardson – Vanessa Redgrave
Vanessa Redgrave CBE is an English actress of high regard, gracing the stage, screen, and television with her beauty and charm. In 2010 she received the BAFTA Fellowship and is basically a living legend. Her career began in the 60s as a darling of the theatre. She then went on to pursue film, with roles in Mission Impossible, Isadora, Julia, Camelot, and more recently, Letters to Juliet.
It was with her first husband, Tony Richardson that she had Natasha and Joely Richardson. Just placing Vanessa and Joely side by side, you can definitely see the similarities! Joely, like her mother, is in the acting game, with roles in Nip/Tuck and The Tudors.
Aviana Oleo Le Gallo – Amy Adams
Some of you may be surprised to know that Amy Adams is one of Hollywood’s highest-paid actresses at the moment, which is great news for her beautiful daughter Aviana Olea Le Gallo! The youngster, who’s inherited her mother’s gorgeous features (though she didn't get her red hair), also will have a sizeable trust fund one day we’re sure!
She’s just a kid now, but hey who knows, she may decide showbiz is for her when she's older. We'll just have to be patient to see what path she decides to follow.
Jennifer Aniston – John Aniston
Friends, the classic 90s sitcom shot a few unknown names to international stardom, and one of them is the gorgeous Jennifer Aniston. Portraying Rachel Green in Friends, she’s also known for her high-profile marriage to Brad Pitt. That didn’t last but, now that they’re both single again, who knows? Kidding! (Or are we?) But aside from that, she’s also the daughter of the late John Aniston.
Now some of you may not be old enough to know what Days of Our Lives are, but for those of you who are, well yes, he played Victor Kiriakis! Small world, eh? And it seems that there’s something in the Greek genes.
Stella Banderas – Tippi Hedren
Between Melanie Griffith, Antonio Banderas, and Tippi Hedren, there’s certainly a lot of two things: good looks and talent. And who’s at the receiving end of this rainbow pot of gold of a gene pool? Stella Banderas.
The daughter of Banderas and Griffith, this young woman surely has plenty of knowledge to draw on about showbiz should she choose to go down that path – but it seems that Stella hasn’t made up her mind if that’s what she’s destined for. It seems that she’s got the luxury of time on her side as well as no pressure from her family, so she really can do whatever she wants! Lucky girl, eh?
Liv Helen Freundlich – Julianne Moore
Julianne Moore just has one of those faces. In recent years her more serious roles have landed her high-profile advertisements with high-end jewelers like Bvlgari. On the other side of 55, Moore is still gorgeous and radiant, and she’s got plenty of talent to keep her going for as long as she chooses.
But we’re here to focus on her daughter, Liv Helen Freundlich. Luckily for Liv, she’s got some of her mother’s beauty including that flaming red hair! Watch out world, Liv seems to have the acting bug as well and has had an appearance in The Rebound!
Katherine Waterston – Sam Waterston
Being a fixture in Hollywood is no mean feat – and Sam Waterston is proof that with tenacity and talent, you can make it happen. For over sixty years. Pretty incredible, eh? His daughter, Katherine too, seems to understand showbiz, and is making her own mark – though preferring the East Coast it seems, with a love for Broadway!
Having starred on Broadway, as well as acting in a few television shows and even more films, the impressive Katherine is as radiant as ever! Maybe that’s what happens when you love what you do! Otherwise, whatever beauty products she’s using, we want in. No, but seriously.
Montana Fishburne – Laurence Fishburne
Laurence Fishburne is another iconic actor on our list. However, despite his legendary status, it seems that his daughter Montana has caused him quite a bit of trouble. At first, she began starring in adult films, and more recently was involved in a scandal that was double-edged: she was arrested for DUI as well as uh… Not being able to control her bladder in public.
Anyway, the video of her "accident" went viral, and basically, her career went down the toilet. She entered rehab, paid by Dad possibly, and whilst it’s scandalous we do hope that she is doing a lot better now!
Will Reeve – Christopher Reeve
Will Reeve looks quite like his father, actor Christopher Reeve. What it must have been like to have a superhero dad? Sadly, the Superman curse seemed to have struck the Reeve family. Christopher Reeve, who played the iconic superhero between 1978 and 1987 was paralyzed in 1995 following a horse-riding accident and died at the very young age of 52 from heart failure.
Despite losing both of his parents before he had turned 14, he persevered and earned a college degree and has since become an ESPN contributor, building a legacy of his own.
Natasha Bure – Candace Cameron Bure
Producer, director, and actress, it seems that Candace Cameron Bure was destined for showbiz! Getting shot to fame due to her roles in Full House and Fuller House, it was inevitable that she’d end up in circles that saw her consorting with the rich, famous, and talented. She’s married to NHL player Valerie Bure, and the couple has a daughter together, Natasha.
Showing promise from a very young age, Natasha Bure has already launched her career as a singer, and even tried her hand at acting! We’re not sure she’ll go for hockey, but hey, maybe it’s a good hobby to keep on the side – we’re sure her dad would give her some practice tips!
Gia Giudice – Teresa Giudice
Climbing to fame and household reputability through the reality show The Real Housewives Of New Jersey, next up is Teresa Giudice. Later, Giudice decided to diversify her on-screen portfolio, and went down the Martha Stewart route (ahem), releasing cookbooks, before then being charged with fraud and facing jail time, with her husband.
Don't worry, she is out now. Her eldest daughter is Gia, who is quite the looker! While we're sure she could start modeling right away, instead of pursuing the entertainment route, she going to Law School, good for her!
Naomi deduce Wilding – Elizabeth Taylor
Ah, those violet eyes. Not to mention those gorgeous thick eyelashes and perfect skin. Elizabeth Taylor, the woman, and the legend. The screen siren and Hollywood goddess with her hobby of walking down the aisle is one of the most legendary actresses and personalities of all time.
Her second-born granddaughter, Naomi, was born in the UK, but still had a relationship with her grandmother, and managed to rise to fame as a fashion designer! You can’t really get much better publicity than having links to Elizabeth Taylor, and we bet she isn't complaining about the physical similarity she shares with her late grandmother.
Alice Richmond – Tina Fey
Tina Fey has become a household name, particularly in the past decade. With her wit and sarcasm, she has proven to be more than just a wonderful comedian, but also a fantastic writer, did you know she wrote on SNL? That’s where all the big names have started! She also has writing credits on CULT CLASSIC Mean Girls. Not to mention being the creator of the series 30 Rock with Alec Baldwin at the helm of the ship.
She tied the knot with Jeff Richmond back in 2001, and the pair have two daughters together. We think that their eldest, Alice looks very much like her mom! We’re hoping too that Fey’s writing prowess has flowed to her daughters, maybe we’ll see their names in lights one day too!
Kris Van Damme – Jean-Claude Van Damme
The Belgian tower of muscle, Jean-Claude Van Damme is well known for his fighter films and action-packed scenes. A notable martial artist and reality TV star, Jean-Claude Van Damme will forever be immortalized in films like Bloodsport, Cyborg, and Kickboxer. They’re classics – so if you’re into your MMA, get some healthy snacks and watch the master go to town on his unfortunate rivals.
His son, whom he had with Gladys Portugues, who’s called Kris, is almost a spitting image of his father, particularly when he was at the peak of his career and good looks! Kris Van Damme is also in showbiz, and he acts, produces, and directs! Pretty good, seems like a chip off the old block!
Selena Gomez – Mandy Teefey
When her mother gave birth to Selena at 16 years of age, she was living “paycheck-to-paycheck.” These days, her daughter has more than paid her back, with a net worth of nearly $100 million. Taking after her mother in the beauty department, Selena has graced many stages and magazine covers! Named after Tejano singer and actress Selena Quintanilla Pérez, she has both Mexican and Italian heritage, which translates to her unique beauty.
Her career began at an early age, appearing on Barney & Friends, her true breakthrough was on Princess Protection Program and Wizards of Waverly Place, cementing her place as a Disney star. She later made her move to music, becoming a pop superstar with international reach.
Shiloh Jolie Pitt – Brad Pitt
The firstborn daughter of former Hollywood power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt — next up is the gorgeous Shiloh Jolie Pitt. The reason she makes our list is due to the uncanny resemblance she holds to her father. But the lips well, they’ve got to be Angelina’s! Born in Namibia after the pair had a stint in Africa, Shiloh broke a record, just eight weeks after she was born.
Don’t believe us? Google Madame Tussaud’s wax museum in London – they had a wax figure created of the baby just two months after her birth. Extreme, eh? Working in the film industry, the youngster has a very very bright future ahead of her.
Max Irons – Jeremy Irons
Since the 1980s, actor Jeremy Irons has enjoyed quite a successful career in Hollywood. Some of his most memorable roles are in movies like Reversal of Fortune, The French Lieutenant’s Woman, and Deadringers.
He and his wife, Sinéad Cusack, have a son — Max Irons. The young man seems to have inherited his father's frame as well as his strong facial features. Like his father, he's also earning a pretty penny as an actor in the show biz. Many people recognize Max from films like The Host and Red Riding Hood.
Bonnie Chapman – Beth Chapman
Ah yes, Dog the Bounty Hunter. What a show. What a cast. What a premise. What glorious, glorious mullets. So so so much better than the Kardashians. Don’t you agree? Let’s agree to disagree. Anyway, next up on our list is Beth Chapman, and her daughter Bonnie Chapman! Married to Duane Chapman, the pair have a daughter who’s made headlines for her gorgeous looks!
With a healthy Instagram following and regular posting keeping her content fresh, it seems that she’s ready for showbiz just like her parents before her! Watch out for this one.
Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. – Cristiano Ronaldo
Cristiano Ronaldo is probably THE hottest dad ever. Like, we’re okay with the stereotypical dad bods, but how can you compare this dad bod to the rest? He sets a new level. Sorry dads over the world. Not to mention the fact he is one of the greatest footballers of all time. The gifted Portuguese football superstar has been on the circuit for many years and just seems to get better.
Despite the accolades and wealth, he is indeed a family man. His first son was born in 2010 and is named after his dad- Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. There was something of a media circus when his son was born, due to the undisclosed name of his mother. Young Ronaldo Jr. certainly has the world at his feet, and seems to have shown an aptitude for the beautiful game! Can Ronaldo Jr. follow in his father’s footsteps? That’s a tough one to call, but we’ll just have to wait and see!
Winnie Fallon – Jimmy Fallon
New York funnyman Jimmy Fallon is one of the kings of late-night comedy. Where many comedians rarely laugh at their own jokes, waiting for the audience’s reaction, Fallon joins in on the fun, barely able to keep a straight face. We love him all the more for it. Initially starting as a cast member of Saturday Night Live (surprise surprise!), he’s made it now, hosting his own show, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Apart from his TV show, he’s also the doting father of two gorgeous daughters. They’ve definitely captured his heart – he frequently refers to them on his show, the cutie! Do you think his daughter Winnie, who’s just four, looks anything like Jimmy?
Quinlin Stiller – Ben Stiller
Ben Stiller is just one of those hilariously funny Hollywood guys. Maybe he got it from his papa, the very famous Jerry Stiller. (For those people who are unaware, Mr. Costanza? Yeah). Ben Stiller was a star himself and grew up basking in the limelight.
Sure, he won accolades and is very highly regarded as an actor, but Stiller had his own personal battles. Now a teenager, his young son Quinlin brings joy into his life. The pair are often snapped together – and maybe, just maybe he’s inherited a little of his father’s (or grandfather’s) talent and a knack for comedy!
Dashiell Orson Priestley – Jason Priestley
Ah, Beverly Hills 90210. Next up on our list is Jason Priestley, who shot to fame during his role in the series. He tied the knot with Naomi Lowde in 2005, in the Bahamas no less. Together the pair have two children together, one of them being Dashiell Orson Priestley. We’re sure that with the genetics of both parents, Dashiell is bound to inherit some of their looks! The talent would be pretty great too, no?
He’s often been snapped cruising around with his dad, who’s now turned to car racing. Slightly more dangerous than acting, but hey, you do you, boo. Wonder if Dashiell will inherit his dad’s need for speed, or stick to acting.
Haven Garner Warren – Jessica Alba
The gorgeous Jessica Alba has not one but two beautiful daughters. The one we’re focusing on is her second, Haven Garner Warren. Alba, who gave birth to Haven in 2011, welcomed her into the world after giving birth to her first daughter, Honor. Their father, Cash Warren, was a behind-the-scenes guy who caught the eye of Alba on set. The rest is history.
She is also quite a businesswoman. Her Honest company focuses on enviro-friendly and sustainable household and baby products. We hope that Haven looks up to her mommy and can take a leaf out of her book one day – looks are one thing, but having a brain and a conscience are worth so much more!
Willow Sage – Pink
The gorgeous singer P!nk is so much more than just a color. The gifted songstress is also an incredible gymnast AND she’s a mom! The mother to Willow Sage, who she had with her husband Carey Hart, P!nk certainly has her plate full. We love the fact that both mom and daughter have a rather quirky fashion sense.
It seems that Willow, from a young age, was showing promise, performing in three of her mom’s music videos. She was just 6 when she made her debut! We’re sure that whatever career path she chooses, she’ll excel – and with the financial backing and support from her parents, she’ll have no trouble finding her way!
Cara Delevingne – Charles Delevingne
The absolutely stunning English supermodel Cara Delevingne was hand-plucked from the elite (yeah, her family is kind of a big deal) and signed to a number of renowned brands from a young age. With her thick eyebrows and gorgeous eyes, she emerged as one of the most promising models when she was a teen. Nowadays it is not uncommon to see her face plastered across billboards. Not to mention her outstanding acting ability!
Did you that her father is Charles Delevingne, a notable real estate developer in the UK? He’s got money, looks, and power. When he was young, he was referred to as “debs delight” – for the debutantes we imagine. That apple sure didn't fall far from the tree!
Dannielynn Birkhead – Anna Nicole Smith
Anna Nicole Smith had a rollercoaster ride of a life and was often likened to Marilyn Monroe for her looks... and later for their unfortunate but similar fates. But now the spotlight turns to her daughter, Dannielynn Birkhead, who seems to have inherited her mother’s gorgeous looks!
Dannielynn paid tribute to her mother, dressing in what is now a family heirloom – the pink hat her mom wore at The Kentucky Derby in 2004, the media went crazy! The young woman seems to be interested in reality TV and modeling, which are industries that are sure to make some bank for her.
Riley Keough – Lisa Marie Presley
Lisa Marie, of course, owed her beauty to her mom Priscilla Presley, and her plentiful bank account balance to having a stake in the estate of her father – the one and only Elvis Presley. Lisa Marie followed in her parents’ footsteps, pursuing a career in music.
Lisa Marie's daughter, Riley, is carrying on with the family legacy, even after her mother's passing — she is a model and producer and the list will surely go on as she progresses in her career in entertainment. The looks, the funds, and the talent are all neatly packaged, she just has to roll with it.
Victorie Franklin – Aretha Franklin
Aretha Franklin, also known as the Queen of Soul, with over 75 million records sold worldwide and 18 Grammy awards stashed away, she’s certainly earned that title and more. Franklin will forever be remembered.
Her granddaughter, Victorie, who is next up on our list seems to have inherited some of her grandmother’s amazing talent and is on the right path to stardom. When Aretha passed the whole world mourned but there is a bright light of hope shining from Victorie, and maybe she’ll honor her grandmother’s legacy.
Otis Sudeikis – Olivia Wilde
The Irish American beauty Olivia Wilde is best known for her role as Dr. Reny Hadley in House. The green-eyed Wilde has two children – a son, Otis, and a daughter, Daisy – with her former partner Jason Sudeikis. Can you guess how she came across the name Otis for her son? Well, she’s an Otis Redding fan of course. Cute, eh?
Snapped by the paparazzi a few times when out with Ma and Pa, the young Otis seems to be a favorite with the cameras. A recent snap on the star’s Instagram shares a happy moment with the family. With a famous mother and father, we’re sure that little Otis will grow up with all the best in life, and every opportunity at his feet.
Matthew Edward Lowe – Rob Lowe
Born in Charlottesville Virginia, Rob Lowe is well, a looker, and he’s aged like a fine wine. Anywho, many of you will know Rob Lowe as a bit of a teen idol during the 1980s. Years later, gaining a solid reputation in Parks and Recreation, he really became a household name. In 1991 he married Sheryl Berkoff and has had two sons with her — John and Matthew.
The brothers decided to bank on the fact their father is Rob Lowe, creating a reality TV series The Lowe Files which follows the family as they check out interesting phenomena. How very curious. Interesting family to be honest. The eldest son of Lowe and his wife is quite active on social media, posting frequently of his college sweetheart, now partner, and his dog! Cute!
Axl Jack Duhamel – Fergie
Fergie has long been in the music industry, from her early days and being part of The Black Eyed Peas, to her solo career. You might remember that she was married to Josh Duhamel for eight years, however, this was dissolved in 2017. The couple has a son, Axl, and despite the fact that his parents are no longer together, it’s not stopping him from having a good relationship with both of them.
Social media and the paparazzi have documented Fergie and Axl sporting the same jerseys when cheering on Team USA, as well as paying a few visits to see Mommy in the studio. Pretty fun childhood!
Marlowe Ottoline Layng Sturridge – Sienna Miller
Fashion designer, model, and actress, of course, Sienna Miller is treasured by both England and America. With her dual heritage, she has the glam of America and the elegance and class of the Brits and has touched hearts many a time with her performances. If you’ve seen Stardust or Mississippi Grind, you’ll know what we mean. Little Marlowe is her daughter with former partner Tom Sturridge, whom she was with between 2011 and 2015.
Despite the fact that they’re separated, it doesn’t stop the pair from showering their daughter with love and affection. Naturally, Marlowe is dressed impeccably, owing to her mother’s own fabulous taste, and access to every celebrity stylist ever!
Stella Doreen McDermott – Tori Spelling
Victoria Davey Spelling, better known as Tori Spelling, is proving to us all that even after five kids, some women can still look as fierce as ever! I mean, have you seen her!? The actress is best known for her role as Donna Martin in Beverly Hills, 90210, which was in fact produced by her father!
She tied the knot with her Canadian actor husband Dean McDermott in 2006. They now have five kids together! Among them are two daughters, Stella and Hattie. It seems that young Stella has set up her own online slime business – what a budding entrepreneur! She has also said that she wants to have a bakery one day. You go, girl!
Mason Gooding – Cuba Gooding Jr.
Now you might have seen Mason Gooding in Booksmart recently – playing the handsome, but “seemingly” dumb Nick. It seems that acting was natural for Gooding, not surprising as his father is none other than Jerry Maguire star Cuba Gooding Jr. The established actor has won an Academy Award and has three children with Sara Kapfer.
Unlike other celeb children, Gooding went to college first, before joining the entertainment industry – though admittedly it was NYU, not just any community college. We wish him all the best and hope to see him make more appearances on our screens!
Megan Sanov – Alison Sweeney
OMG, Sami! Okay, guys, Sami was like, our favorite character on NBC Drama Days of Our Lives. Wait, does that make us really old? Anyway, Alison Sweeney, the fabulous actor, author, and director who made Samantha so great has been married for many years now. In 2000, Sweeney tied the knot with David Sanov – the couple also share a son and daughter, Benjamin and Megan Sanov. Like her mother, Megan is beautifully blonde with a lovely little smile! Pretty much a clone if you ask us.
Sweeney says of her young daughter that she’s got her own sense of style, and is a bit of a “free spirit.” Seems that if Megan chooses, she can definitely go down the fashion path – we’re sure her mom would indulge her with some start-up capital!
Luca Cruz Comrie – Hilary Duff
Hilary Duff was an early 2000s icon. Lizzie Maguire was the relatable, girl-next-door character who was loved by all girls! Not to mention the fact that Hilary Duff could SING! Anyway, the former star of Lizzie Maguire, Agent Cody Banks, and Cinderella Story actress (um Chad Michael Murray anyone?) is now a mom and a cool one at that. She was married to Mike Comrie, a former Canadian ice hockey player. Sadly, however, the pair split after six years.
They share a son, Luca. Duff, who is a loving mom, loves to take her little one out for lunch or on hikes. The pair get around and like to keep active – but we just love the fact that Duff pushed her career to the side to focus on spending quality time with her little one.
Princess Eugenie – Sarah Ferguson
Ah, imagine waking up, stretching out, and opening your eyes to a massive four-poster bed. Well for Princess Eugenie, daughter of Sarah Ferguson, that fantasy is a reality! The young royal is now married to English businessman Jack Brooksbank and the two share a son that the people of England just can't get enough of.
Whilst her mother Sarah Ferguson separated from her former husband when Eugenie was just six, the mother and daughter have always had a very strong bond and relationship. The Duchess of York and Prince Andrew have raised one very lucky daughter and we’re sure she’ll do the same with her own offspring.
Lula Rose Gardner – Liv Tyler
Ah, Liv Tyler. What a beauty! Surprising given her father is Steven Tyler. JUST KIDDING. The man is a literal rock star. But thank goodness Tyler took after her mom…anyway no more hate from us! The American actress, who rose to international fame for her role as the ethereal Arwyn in the epic saga Lord of the Rings is a doting mom!
Mother to Lula Rose and Sailor Gene with her current husband David Gardner, she’s also got a son – Milo, whom she had when she was with Royston Langdon. Little Lula is still a kid, so mom is making sure she gets as much mother-daughter time as possible before she thinks it's uncool! Tyler’s cherub is the apple of her eye, and we’re sure that she’s lucky (not in just a financial sense) to have the beautiful Liv as her mom!
Tennessee James Toth – Reese Witherspoon
Reese Witherspoon absolutely loves her son Tennessee. She’s even commented to media outlets that his smile never fails to make her day! The Big Little Lies star has nabbed a Golden Globe among other accolades and is certainly a familiar face in American households. Tennessee, whose father is Tom Toth, is still of school age.
We’re sure in a few years’ time he’ll have all sorts of potential prospects chasing him! Because he’s so young we’re not putting any pressure on the kid – go and live your carefree life – we’re sure that he’ll have access to every opportunity and only have the best of the best!
Frankie Barrymore Kopelman – Drew Barrymore
Drew Barrymore is famous in her own right – though perhaps being the granddaughter of John Barrymore wasn’t bad for publicity! Barrymore, who made our hearts leap throughout the 90s and 00s (oh and hello, when she played the adorable Gertie in E.T the Extra-Terrestrial) in rom-coms and romance films like The Wedding Singer and Never Been Kissed and Ever After, is just a dream. As is her daughter!
On a personal level, she’s not been so lucky as her characters in films, being divorced three times. Frankie and Olive Kopelman are Drew Barrymore’s daughters, and we can certainly see the resemblance!
Cruz Beckham – David Beckham
The Beckhams are basically royalty when it comes to being celebrities in the UK. The football star and popstar-turned-fashion-designer seem to be a formidable duo and have plenty of troops to carry on the family legacy. The third in line (heh) is Cruz Beckham.
Whilst we’ve seen more of him on the runway sideline as opposed to goofing around on the football pitch, it’s safe to say nothing’s off the cards for Cruz! A mix of his mom and dad, his mom Victoria seems to enjoy showing off Cruz’s singing talent! A music video he released of him singing and playing guitar sent the internet aflame – who knows, maybe he’ll breach the popstar world one day! One thing is for sure: the sky’s the limit for this young Beckham!
John Owen Lowe – Rob Lowe
This list also features Matthew Lowe, and sure the resemblance is certainly there with his father Rob Lowe. But what about his younger son, John Owen? We’ll let you guys decide! Anyway, alongside his brother, John runs the reality show The Lowe Files. Check it out if you’ve not seen it – it’s certainly surprising!
As well as The Lowe Files, John has appeared in The Grinder, a TV series. But study first – the young man has attended the prestigious Stanford University. The brothers certainly resemble their father, we just wonder if they’ll gain the same type of success that their dad did years before!
Puma Sabti Curry – Erykah Badu
Erykah Badu certainly has something: a phenomenal voice. The neo-soul queen’s debut album Baduizm was so popular that it received a triple-platinum certification. Pretty amazing stuff. She’s got a few kids to spend the royalties on: Mars, Puma, and Seven. It seems that the girls, Puma and Mars have received some of their mom’s God-given talent!
Puma sang for her mom’s birthday and the video evidence was astounding. Erykah Badu shared the beautiful moment on her Instagram and was absolutely thrilled that her angel would be so sweet as to sing for her. And well. Haha! Watch this space, we may have another singer on our hands!
Jagger Snow Ross – Ashlee Simpson
Ashlee Simpson had a few hits back in the 2000s – but was seemingly always overshadowed by her sister Jessica Simpson. Can’t forget that “chicken of the sea” moment can we? Ashlee, however, always had pipes and sang, wrote songs, and even went into acting. The Ashlee Simpson Show star is now married to actor and musician Evan Ross after her split with Fall Out Boy musician Pete Wentz. Too much eyeliner between them? Maybe.
Anyway, Ashlee now has a beautiful little kid, Jagger, who seems to also love the spotlight! Ashlee clearly loves her daughter, and we think it’s super sweet how the two are often snapped on outings, even sometimes at red-carpet events!
Anja Louise Ambrosio Mazur – Alessandra Ambrosio
Alessandra Ambrosio is one of those untouchable supermodels. Gorgeous, Brazilian, and a favorite of Victoria’s Secret runway shows. The leggy brunette flaunted her stuff down many runways, modeling for high fashion houses such as Versace and Moschino. Ambrosio has even tried her hand at acting!
Anyway, we’re here to look at the beautiful little girl she shares with Jamie Mazur. Anja Louise Ambrosio Mazur seems to be taking after her mother in the looks department, but we’re not sure she wants to pursue modeling! It seems that Anja is more interested in music – it helps when your dad can play alongside you at Coachella. Imagine performing at Coachella as a kid!
Asahd Tuck Khaled – DJ Khaled
The uber-famous and uber-rich producer DJ Khaled is nowadays still producing but is also an extremely doting father. His wife Nicole Tuck gave birth to their bundle of joy, Asahd, in October 2016. Back when Nicole was in the delivery room, DJ Khaled decided to show fans the er... birth. A bit up close and personal – too much for some, depending on how you handle blood and screaming. Yeah…
The sweet kid is quite the hit with the cameras, and has a very healthy Instagram account which is carefully looked after by his dad! The cutie appeared on his dad’s album, and even attends award shows! Adorable!
Oscar Gabriel De La Hoya – Oscar De La Hoya
The former boxer, known as “The Golden Boy”, next up is famed fighting man, Oscar De La Hoya. During the 1992 Summer Olympics, De La Hoya won gold in the lightweight category – that’s not easy, that’s for sure! The boxing champ retired afterward, and these days he promotes the sport… along with running around with his son Oscar Gabriel. After walking down the aisle with Millie Corretjer, Oscar Gabriel came into their lives.
What we can’t get over is the resemblance between father and son! Who knows, we might even see the young Oscar Gabriel pulling on gloves and getting into the ring. But hey, he might decide it’s not for him, and that’s fine too!
Monroe Cannon – Mariah Carey
Now Monroe Cannon has a bit of a back story as to how she got her name – she’s named after none other than the golden age screen siren, Marilyn Monroe. Mariah Carey always had a fascination and great admiration for Monroe and decided it would be perfect to name her little girl after such a woman. Kinda cute really. The singer, whose range is literally out of this world, was given the title of “Songbird Supreme” by the Guinness World Records Committee. Cool, eh?
The “Emotions” singer and her daughter Monroe, whom she had with then-husband, Nick Cannon, seem very close – fans were indulged with snaps of the two enjoying a spa treatment together! We’re just super curious to see if she inherits any of her mother’s incredible singing talent. Stay tuned…
Joseph Bale – Christian Bale
The American Psycho himself – ha just kidding, The American Psycho star is in fact, a family guy. We’d be showing off at show-and-tell at school if our dad was BATMAN. Like, kids say their dad is Batman but… Joseph Bale’s dad actually IS BATMAN.
Anyway. Enough about Batman. The Dark Knight star is a wonderfully accomplished and prolific English actor and producer. Married to Sandra Blazic, the pair share a sweet son. Though he is still a child, we think we can still see some resemblance between him and his father. Especially around their eyes and nose. A true father and son.
Beau Dykstra – Jamie-Lynn Sigler
Famous for playing Meadow Soprano in the series The Sopranos, next up is Jamie-Lynn Sigler and her son Beau Dykstra. The American actress married Major League basketball pro Cutter Dykstra following her split from A.J. DiScala. Before marrying Dykstra, Sigler gave birth to their baby boy, Beau. He’s been lucky to be courtside – for a five-year-old!
We suppose it’s literally child’s play when your parents are both famous! When he was just two, baby Dykstra cheered on the New York Mets…yes, at age two. Wonder if he’ll get any of Daddy’s basketball talent – or perhaps he’ll go into showbiz! Who knows!
Roman Robert Upton – Cate Blanchett
Cate Blanchett has to be one of Australia’s best exports. With her commanding presence and ethereal beauty, it’s no wonder she’s one of the most renowned actresses in the world. Having won accolades that include three Golden Globes, she’s definitely got the acting talent, that’s for sure! It was her role as Queen Elizabeth I in Elizabeth that garnered her a lot of attention – oh and just casually, an Oscar.
Fun fact: Blanchett is the only Australian to nab two Oscars! Impressive. Married to Australian screenwriter and director Andrew Upton, the pair have a son together, Roman. Roman is one lucky kid – jet-setting to Sydney for a beach holiday before being whisked away to Switzerland for some film premiere with his mom… now that’s the life. Cate, please adopt us.
Kyd Miller Duchovny – David Duchovny
Ah, David Duchovny. What a heartthrob. We don’t care what you say, he’s still got it ok! The former X-Files star, (oh, and Californication star) just has one of those faces. Maybe it’s the eyes or that smirk. Okay okay, we’ll stop fangirling. Anywho, David welcomed his son Kyd into the world with his then-wife Tea Leoni. Interesting name choice eh? Some would say it’s… simple.
Regardless we’re sure that Kyd Miller got through high school just fine – when you’re a son of Hollywood royalty you get a free pass when it comes to names. Well, regardless, Kyd’s got a bright future ahead of him we’re sure!
Leni Klum – Heidi Klum
The supermodel with it all, Heidi Klum can take any man’s (or woman’s) breath away! With success as a model (duh), on TV and in business, Klum seems to have a golden touch. She’s also very well known for her crazy Halloween costumes! Pretty incredible stuff… we loved her version of Jessica Rabbit.
Her eldest daughter with racing car driver Flavio Briatore is named Leni and she was actually adopted by Seal. Anywho, when your mom’s a supermodel you’re bound to inherit some of those looks – and it rings true for Leni, who’s looking more and more like her mother each day!
Georgia May Jagger – Jerry Hall
With that unmistakable gap tooth, Georgia May Jagger is undoubtedly the daughter of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger. But she didn’t get all her looks from Daddy-o. No no, her mom is none other than supermodel Jerry Hall. With her crazy long legs and flowing blonde hair, Jerry Hall was definitely put on a pedestal. And rightfully so!
To this day, she’s still smokin’ hot! No wonder her daughter has managed to get snapped working for the big designer brands: Miu Miu and Versace come to mind when we think of Jagger. As well as living that model life, she’s also tried her hand at fashion design. Regardless, whatever she decided to pursue, we know she’ll breeze through!
Jaden Smith – Will Smith
Jaden Smith is surely someone who could easily rely on his parent's fortune. Between his famous parents, Will Smith (if you couldn't tell) and Jada Pinkett-Smith, Jaden could just go straight into retirement, and his sister, Willow, can join him.
But no, Jaden is actually a hard worker, as a businessman and a philanthropist he's already making a name of his own, and a nice fortune as well. He actually started out pretty young, having starred alongside his father in the 2006 film The Pursuit of Happyness. He was just eight years old back then but still gave an impressive performance!
Moroccan Scott Cannon – Mariah Carey
The twin brother of little Monroe is Moroccan Scott Cannon. The son of rapper Nick Cannon and renowned songstress Mariah Carey, there was initially some confusion with the choice of name for the little guy. Mariah revealed to media outlets that the reason she chose the name “Monroe” for her daughter had to do with her love of Marilyn Monroe, That much we know, but as far as her son's name goes... We're guessing that she really loves Morocco.
It seems little Moroccan is living it up as per the IG feed of his parents. We’re sure the young Cannon will be set up for life with Mariah and Nick as his role models and caregivers!
Gigi Hadid – Yolanda Hadid
Gigi Hadid's mother, Yolanda Hadid, is surely proud of her for becoming the successful and established supermodel she's become in recent years. They say Gigi shares a striking resemblance with her mother when she was younger. So we know that Gigi will age like fine wine.
Gigi has walked for nearly every leading luxury brand, and with an estimated net worth is $30 million and she is one of the world’s highest-paid models in the fashion industry. This supermodel is a mother herself! Her daughter, Khai, is still young but we have a feeling she'll do well with her pretty genes.
Milo Gibson – Mel Gibson
Gaining popularity through the trifecta of Hollywood blockbusters, comes Mel Gibson. Whilst he has enjoyed his time in the spotlight immensely, he also had his private life, like raising his child with his former wife Robyn Moore. He is one of no less than nine siblings who call Mel dad.
Their son, Milo has inherited his father’s striking blue eyes and strong masculine nose. Milo is now a father too, and his choice of profession; you guessed it, it’s film! Mr. Gibson has followed in his father’s footsteps, pursuing an acting career, as well as filming a couple of projects.
Tommy Lee – Brandon Lee
The drummer for the iconic rock band Motley Crue, Tommy Lee, has a mini-me named Brandon Lee! He had Brandon with Baywatch star, Pamela Anderson. The pair in fact scandalously married in 1995, just DAYS after their first meeting. Yep.
The pair were hot and heavy from the get-go and gave the media and their fans a lot to talk about. What we're talking about here, though, is their son, Tommy, who looks like the perfect combination of his mother's beauty and his father's rugged appearance. The young Lee is also part of the entertainment industry, having played parts in a handful of film and TV projects.
Laila Ali – Muhammad Ali
Not many phrases are more iconic than “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee” – and not many boxers can say they had a career even close to that of Muhammad Ali. The record-breaking athlete spent time fighting both in and out of the ring, which put him on the map not only as a hero in the ring but as a hero for his causes.
Sure, it was a setback, but he wasn’t going to back down! His daughter Laila Ali, whom he had with Veronica Porche, survives him. Like her daddy, Laila took to the sport and fought between 1999 and 2007. She was undefeated. Pretty sure she had Dad smiling from the sidelines!
Golden – Nick Cannon
Remember way back when Mariah Carey tied the knot with Nick Cannon? Yeah, feels like forever ago, doesn’t it? Since then she hooked up with an Aussie billionaire and now she’s back to earning royalties from All I Want for Christmas Is You. Ah, Mariah. We still love you, though. Anyway, rapper Nick Cannon lasted with Carey for six years before it ended in divorce.
We’re not sure how much the divorce attorneys received but we’re going to bet it was in the millions. Anyway, the couple has a son together, called Golden. He’s still pretty young, but we’re sure he’s got a few properties already looking at who his parents are!
Mason Disick – Scott Disick
Having been linked to Kourtney Kardashian for several years, Scott Disick has a name of his own now. But he’s definitely got to thank his ex for bringing him fame through the reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
To be honest, we loved Scott’s cutting and brutal comments whenever the girls said something that was less than intelligent. The couple broke up and then reconciled following the birth of their son Mason. But alas, things were not meant to last long term, with the two going their separate ways. One thing’s for sure though – Daddy’s boy will be inheriting a serious watch collection one day!
Frances Bean Cobain – Courtney Love
Back in the 90s, Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain were something of a power couple. Nowadays fashion looks back and recycles itself, and we’re pretty sure we’ve seen a few copies of some of their iconic looks. The pair were both singers and started trends that have carried on to this day. Their quirky, dark yet fashionable looks are still servin’!
The pair had a daughter together, Frances Bean Cobain, who strongly resembles her parents. Sadly, this went as far as having dependency issues, but after a long struggle, Frances has emerged triumphant and is sober these days. We hope that her pursuit of music and modeling pays off for her!
Myles Murphy – Eddie Murphy
Eddie Murphy is a legend. Comedic genius, truly. For years he has managed to make even the toughest audience laugh heartily, and boy, do we love him for it. Roles like Dr. Doolittle, The Nutty Professor, oh, and of course, the hilarious Coming to America, as well as Shrek, have solidified his place in Hollywood and in movie history.
Despite his humor and a big grin, it seems that Eddie Murphy has had some trouble holding down a marriage. He’s had relationships but sadly the majority of those have ended in divorce. Of his ten (!) children, he has five kids with Nicole Mitchell, and one of those is his son Miles Murphy.
Dan Levy – Eugene Levy
If there’s one stereotypical “dad” image that springs to mind, it’s automatically Eugene Levy, who plays Noah Levenstein in the cult-classic American Pie series. That scene with the apple pie. Heck, that scene with the hot exchange student in Jim’s bedroom. And oh lord, those awkward pauses when Levenstein tries to explain some burd and bees business to his son. Just classic.
The Canadian actor has had a prolific career, and is well known for his comedy scripts – so much so that he’s received a star on Canada’s own Walk of Fame! His son Dan seemed to have a penchant for comedy also, and he stars alongside his father on the Netflix show Schitt’s Creek. Not bad for a father-son duo!
Jeffrey Jordan – Michael Jordan
You must feel the pressure when you’re the son of one of the greatest (if not the greatest) basketball players of all time. We’d buckle with that kind of pressure tbh. Jeffrey Jordan, son of basketballer Michael Jordan, decided that, despite the expectation and pressure, that he too would venture into the world of basketball.
Michael Jordan, his dad, has a net worth of roughly $2 billion, so regardless of whether Jeffrey finds success or not, we're pretty sure that he’d definitely have a place to live and quite a few dollars in his bank account! And hey, the links into the activewear world are strong – surely Nike would be looking after Jeffrey Jordan very well.
Romeo Beckham – David Beckham
David and Victoria Beckham seem to have made a resurgence as style inspiration! Not that they are ever out of style. Anywho, the power couple are renowned across the world and in the UK, with Beckham having that incredible left boot, and Victoria as part of the Spice Girls, before finding her niche in the fashion world.
The pair work well together and are always working on expanding their empire – we can only imagine the properties they own and the lucrative investments they’ve made over the years! Romeo Beckham, their second son, was certainly raised with privilege and loves his sport as well as fashion.
John David Washington – Denzel Washington
Denzel’s son initially tried out to become a member of the NFL, as part of the St. Louis Rams, however, was unsuccessful (Remember the Titans, anyone?). He didn’t initially plan to follow in his famous father’s footsteps, however, circumstances demanded that he give an alternate career path a shot. But with a smile not unlike his father’s, it’s hardly a surprise that he has the role of Ricky Jerret on Ballers alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Washington Sr. is sure to support his son regardless, and whilst he hasn’t quite reached the tour de force performances of his father, he’s still got a lot ahead of him!
Damian Hurley – Elizabeth Hurley
Elizabeth Hurley is just, well, wow. With her sexy British accent, flawless skin, and model proportions, she’s been in the spotlight for a long time now. We loved her as the seductive and cheeky devil in Bedazzled alongside a very confused Brendan Fraser. Not to mention the spicy outfits she donned in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.
The famous model and face of Estee Lauder, has a teen son, Damian. Like his mother, Damian has inherited some of her model genes, and launched his own career as a cover star and actor! We’re sure that with his mom’s connections and those cheekbones, he too will become a household name!
Matilda Ledger – Heath Ledger
Newspapers and the internet were buzzing at the news of Heath Ledger’s death. Yet our heartstrings were tugged when we thought of his and Michelle Williams’ 2-year-old daughter Matilda Rose. Despite the tragedy, Heath’s legacy lives on, as he is immortalized in his films, from A Knight’s Tale to his highly commended performance in The Dark Knight as the Joker.
On a more light-hearted note, who can forget that iconic scene in 10 Things I Hate About You where he proclaims his love in song for Kat, singing, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You.” If he was around now, he’d surely find it difficult to keep his eyes off his beautiful little girl. The genetics are strong in Ledger’s line, passing on not only his charming smile and warmth but his sense of adventure.
Vivienne Jolie Pitt – Angelina Jolie
After adopting a little tribe, in 2008, actress Angelina Jolie gave birth to a pair of twins, a boy, and a girl. Her daughter, Vivienne Marcheline Jolie-Pitt looks like a young Angelina, with her inheriting her gorgeous eyes, and pouty lips.
With parents like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, we can almost put money down that she'll become a famous actress one day like her parents. If she so wishes, that is. With a face like that, a lineage like hers, and the funds it all comes with, she can really opt for whatever career she wishes. We hear pottery is nice.
Louisa Gummer – Meryl Streep
The baby of the Streep girls, next up is Louisa Gummer, Meryl Streep’s youngest daughter. Just as gorgeous as her sisters and of course, her mother, she decided to enter the fashion industry. With the connections to all the designers (who wouldn’t want Meryl Streep at their fashion show?), she’s worked for some of the biggest names and has made her own mark in the fashion world.
When we say worked for, we mean in the sense that she put her good looks to use. The woman is signed with IMG Models in New York, shooting campaigns for Dior as well as appearing in high-profile magazine publications Vanity Fair and Glamour.
Grace Gummer – Meryl Streep
Double or nothing, Meryl Streep edition. The second daughter of Don Gummer and Meryl Streep is the gorgeous Grace Gummer. With a resemblance that makes you immediately realize that they’re mother and daughter, Grace, too, seems to have taken to acting.
Gaining her degree from her mother’s alma mater, Vassar College, Grace went to the stage, and has even performed on Broadway! It seems that the apple indeed doesn’t fall too far from the talented tree! There is a third Gummer sister who is also in show business — her name is Mamie and she has several dozens of acting roles to her name.
Sophie Von Haselberg – Bette Midler
Sophie von Haselberg, daughter of the Emmy, Grammy, and Golden Globe-winning Bette Midler, realized the best way to dismiss the pressure was to avoid the industry altogether. But it seems you can’t fight your DNA, as is the case with Sophie, who is quoted as saying “I tried my hardest to avoid show business, I even moved to China and worked at an advertising agency.”
The Yale graduate, after trying her hand at a number of different roles, landed back at square one, in acting. Her mother, with a net worth of $250 million, is a legend in her own right, and we have hope that Sophie too can carve her career in Hollywood!
Stella Gregg – Jennifer Grey
Nobody puts Baby in the corner… and we’re sure the same applies to Jennifer Grey’s own baby, Stella Gregg. And yes, we know that Jennifer Grey will be forever immortalized as “Baby” in Dirty Dancing, a role which she played when she was just sixteen, but hey, that’s not all! Honestly, we loved her as Ferris Bueller’s somewhat frustrated older sister in the iconic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off!
So sure, we know the mom, but did you know her dad is Clark Gregg? Agent Coulson himself! Pretty cool to be honest. Anyway, Stella Gregg started her acting career early too, and has featured in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Trust Me, and more! Watch this space folks.
Oz Perkins – Anthony Perkins
With a career spanning forty years, Anthony Perkins has enjoyed great success in acting. His son Oz seems to have also strolled down the acting path, inheriting a great talent from his father. Oz has secured a number of film roles ever since he played the role of his father’s 12-year-old character in Psycho II.
Get a child to play a younger version of his father and you're guaranteed to have him walking in his footsteps as an adult. Following a stint in teen comedies, Oz transitioned completely to the genre which called to him: horror. A writer and director, once again we see that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
Olivia Jade Giannulli – Lori Loughlin
Making her big break via the hit TV series Full House alongside the Olsen twins as Rebecca Donaldson-Katsopolis, Lori Loughlin now has two gorgeous daughters of her own! But there was no stopping there for Lori, with roles more recently in When Calls The Heart and Fuller House. In 1997, she tied the knot with Mossimo Giannulli, having Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose.
Olivia has a successful YouTube channel posting beauty tips and makeup reviews, as well as over 1 million followers on Instagram. She is most definitely her mother’s daughter, with the same smile and facial features. Whether she goes into acting or modeling, she is sure to grow an impressive figure in her bank account. Let’s see what Olivia does with those dollars and those connections!
Benedict Cumberbatch – Wanda Ventham
Now, this leading lady is the mother of a son who is arguably even more famous than she is! The English actress Wanda Ventham is best known for her role as Colonel Virginia Lake in the 1970s sci-fi series UFO. In her heyday, she was (and still is) a mega-babe!
In 2014, People magazine even gave her a shout-out, featuring her in its “Most Beautiful People in the World” edition. And no wonder her son Benedict Cumberbatch is a famous actor – we know exactly where he got those gorgeous eyes from! Even better news for him is that he is not only handsome but extremely talented. We absolutely adored him as Doctor Strange in the Avengers franchise, as well as none other than the magnetic, charming Sherlock Holmes.
LT Murray IV — Clint Eastwood
Dirty Harry has to be one of the most iconic films ever made – particularly when it comes to a suave, badass detective. Clint Eastwood, the famed actor and director, is just one of those Hollywood legends, who commands silence when entering a room. Not because he wants it, but because it’s the only reaction we mere mortals can fathom.
Yep, he’s got his son, Scott, who does bear a striking resemblance, but we want to just draw your attention to his grandson, LT Murray IV. And no, this isn’t Scott’s son – Clint had a daughter who was given up for adoption before he hit the big time. This daughter then had a child – LT Murray IV. It seems that he too is interested in showbiz and hopes to have his own TV show one day!
Rashida Jones — Quincy Jones
Gosh, we love Rashida Jones. She’s gorgeous and funny, as well as a wonderful actress. With her husky voice and beautiful eyes, it’s no wonder she was embraced by Hollywood. Her father is none other than the iconic record producer Quincy Jones. Yes, the legend himself is the father to Rashida! The myth, the man, is behind tracks like “Just Once” and “Soul Bossa Nova”. (Austin Powers fans, we got u).
Rashida got her start with a tiny, one-episode role in the 1997 mini-series, Don. She seems to have a penchant for comedy, appearing also on shows like The Office. The actress has made quite a name for herself and has graced many red carpets – with her talent, drive, and maybe a little help from her father, she’s managed to hit it big time.
Benjamin Keough – Elvis Presley
Elvis’ daughter, the late Lisa-Marie had one son, Benjamin. The only grandson of ‘The King’ there are some features which the two share! He and his sisters are the beneficiaries of Elvis’ estate, though it seems sadly it has become less and less as the years have gone on.
Today, it is estimated that Elvis’ net worth would have been around $400 million, no small sum! Some photos of Benjamin, before his unfortunate death, really highlight the similarities between him and his grandfather. Especially pictures like this one where he donned bright blue hair that really emphasized how he had the same eyes as his grandfather.
Violet Affleck – Jennifer Garner
Everyone knows that Violet Affleck is definitely a bundle of cuteness. This comes as no surprise because she is, after all, the offspring of a couple of chiseled stunners in Hollywood. Not to mention, she is the daughter of the woman with dimples to end all dimples.
She has an uncanny resemblance to her beautiful mother, Jennifer Garner, but we’re quite sure there’s a bit of her dad, Ben Affleck, in Violet’s wonderful smile. We wonder if she jas the acting bug like her parents. Or maybe she'll choose to take a completely different route. Who knows? She could have a passion for anything.
Eva Amurri Martino – Susan Sarandon
American actress Susan Sarandon has had a wonderful career in Hollywood, known for her charm and beauty. She has amassed quite an impressive slew of accolades for her character portrayals, receiving an Academy Award, a British Academy Film Award, and a Screen Actors Guild Award, as well as being nominated for six Primetime Emmys and nine Golden Globes! Wow!
Best remembered for her iconic roles in Thelma & Louise and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, these days she is still making headlines. Her daughter, Eva, acts as well, and you can catch a glimpse into her private life in her blog, "Happily Eva After".
Ava Phillipe – Reese Witherspoon
Reese Witherspoon is an actress who needs no introduction: like come on, Legally Blonde, anybody? Elle Woods is certainly a household name. Not to mention her recent role in the phenomenal Big Little Lies. Reese has made some historic achievements ever since her Hollywood debut, and we're sure that she'll continue to do so.
Her daughter, Ava Elizabeth Phillippe, may need a little introduction, for now, but with her mother’s gorgeous looks she inherited, it won’t be long before introductions are not needed for her as well. That is if she is as talented as Reese. Only time will tell.
Maya Hawke – Uma Thurman
Uma Thurman turned into an absolute celebrity after her performances in Pulp Fiction and the Kill Bill series. However, before she took her first steps toward a career in acting, she was already a successful model, having taken the catwalk by storm. As for her daughter, Maya Thurman-Hawke, she looks very much like her mom, and we dare say that she’s even more beautiful!
She has already made a name for herself as an actress. You might remember her face from the recent series Stranger Things, as well as having landed a part in Little Women, a BBC mini-series. With looks like hers, Maya will soon be so famous that a remarkable portfolio is undoubtedly going to be in her future.
Lola Consuelos – Kelly Ripa
This chic mother-daughter duo seems to not only be joined at the hip, but they share wardrobes and star style. Lola Consuelos, who doesn't seem to be into any field of show business, is one of three Consuelos kids. With parents, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, who met on the set of All My Children, Lola, Michael, and Joaquin are a smiley bunch!
We love the fact that Lola doesn’t seem to be like the influencer types which are a dime a dozen. She seems like a family gal with a good head on her shoulders. Good job, Kelly and Mark, for raising your girl right!
Prince Michael Jackson II – Michael Jackson
Michael Jackson, the King of Pop holds a legacy that is out of reach, even for his son. It is unlikely the world will ever again see a star of Jackson’s status. We don’t blame Prince Michael II for being a little camera shy; he makes it clear that he wishes to stay out of the spotlight and grow up in the most normal way as is possible, despite his famous father.
Guess we’ll just have to see what he decides to pursue. One thing is for certain — he certainly has a name and estate which will help him along the way!
Homer James Jigme Gere – Richard Gere
Richard Gere and Carey Lowell were overjoyed when their son was born, however, the love didn’t last, with the pair splitting 13 years later. Homer is the only child of Gere’s, and thus, the only one to inherit his dad’s smokin’ good looks and suave attitude.
Gere’s son decided to go with his mom, leaving dad to do the acting thing and live his life – but surely with lots of time spent together regardless! Whilst Homer Gere’s future is uncertain, it most certainly has the potential to be very bright, considering he’s got the support of his mother and one of the most esteemed actors in Hollywood!
Rumer Willis – Bruce Willis
Bruce Willis, the revered actor, from films like Pulp Fiction, The Sixth Sense, and Armageddon, is a heavyweight in the acting world. With his signature smirk and action-man appeal, the actor is also a bit of a marshmallow when it comes to his kids, such as his daughter with Demi Moore — Rumer Willis.
As a kid, Rumer had a few acting roles alongside Mom and Dad, such as in Bruce’s The Whole Nine Yards and Demi’s Striptease. Rumer Willis also appeared on the reality show Dancing With the Stars and has pursued both modeling and acting. Regardless of which way she goes, we’re sure between mom and dad she’s got more than enough support.
Alexa Ray Joel – Billy Joel
Sing us a song, you’re the piano man… there aren’t many songs with such an iconic opening, particularly one that’s so well-known all over the world. Billy had (and still has) many admirers. The famed musician had been married a couple of times – but it seemed that he needed a few tries to make marriage work for him.
For now, it seems that Billy Joel is happy with his fourth wife, Alexis Roderick, in his retired state. Alexa Ray Joel, his daughter from his marriage to Christie Brinkley, seems to have taken after her old man and is a musician herself. With a stunning mother and her father’s talent, she’s on the up and up!
Liza Minelli – Judy Garland
Judy Garland is one of those stars of old who will never be forgotten. The Wizard of Oz is arguably one of her most famous films (and generally one of the most famous films ever), and her acting and singing talents were surely passed on to her daughter Liza Minelli.
Liza Minelli started out as a nightclub singer, favoring cabaret and jazz styles, which were the perfect segue into the role which would garner her an Academy Award for Best Actress. Remember the 1972 hit Cabaret?! With her rich and soulful voice, Minelli captivated audiences, and today is a legend in her own right.
Matthew and Gunnar Nelson – Ricky Nelson
Some call it luck, others call it raw talent – whatever you call it, there’s no denying that Ricky Nelson certainly had something going for him from a very young age. Why’s that? Well, how many eight-year-olds do you know that have been able to start a music career for themselves? Exactly. To his credit are hits like “Teen Idols” and “Poor Little Fool”.
With his first wife Kris Harmon, Nelson had four kids: Tracy Kristine Nelson, twin sons Gunnar Eric Nelson and Matthew Gray Nelson, and Sam Hilliard Nelson. Gunnar and Matthew would later form a band together called Nelson.
Dylan Brosnan – Pierce Brosnan
There’s certainly something in the Brosnan eyes. You just can’t tear yourself away from the piercing, intense look, which seems to have flowed down from father to son! With James Bond as a father, you’d expect him to be living quite the life – and especially armed with Brosnan’s debonair charm and looks, you’re pretty much Licensed to Kill. Heh.
Dylan Brosnan, however, has risen to fame in his own right – sure, the connections help, but the youngster has made a name for himself in the modeling world. Lucrative modeling contracts with the likes of British fashion house Burberry were the start for Brosnan – and with that jawline and head of hair, we know they won’t slow any time soon!
Imaj Thomas – Philip Michael Thomas
As soon as you say “Miami Vice”, the theme song starts in your head, doesn’t it? Anyway, one of the stars, Phillip Michael Thomas certainly made his mark – not just on the show, but also in numerous roles beforehand, including Coonskin in 1975, and Sparkle, a 1976 film. Fun fact: he’s the father of 11 children. Sheesh! That’s a lot of mouths to feed.
As well as being an actor, Thomas is a skilled musician, something that he seems to have passed on to his daughter, Imaj Thomas. Making her musical debut as a country singer-songwriter, we love her songs Passport and Colorblind. Not bad at all, kiddo!
Ronan Farrow – Frank Sinatra
Frank Sinatra is just a name that everyone must be familiar with – mostly thanks to his Christmas album playing in a loop throughout December in every department store. Anyway, this celeb father-son duo on our list isn’t as straightforward. Why? Well, everyone was shocked to find out that Ronan Farrow’s biological father was not Woody Allen as many believed. It was actually Frank Sinatra!
The story goes that Mia and the iconic Sinatra were hitched in 1966 but filed for divorce a short while later. They remained friends until Sinatra’s death in 1988, but it was a while before the world knew the truth about Ronan's real father. He has to write a book about that story.
Levi McConaughey – Matthew McConaughey
Alright alright alright… here is Matthew McConaughey. The legendary Hollywood golden boy is known for his Texan drawl, which makes him oh-so-appealing. The star has appeared in films like Amistad, A Time to Kill, Contact, oh, and Magic Mike, and How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days. Not to mention Lincoln Lawyer and just a BUNCH more.
Anywho, he tied the knot with Camilla Alves in 2012 and has a son, Levi (plus another son and a daughter.) The boy is blessed on both sides when it comes to looks, and we’re sure that whatever path he chooses he’ll be successful!
