Fame is awesome and awful at the same time and celebrities are the same. We’re fascinated by them; we love them and we hate them. Celebrities almost always are paid an insane amount of money, celebrities have bad plastic surgery, they are role models and have public meltdowns. But celebrities are also normal people, who go shopping, have kids and watch TV. Some of their kids end up being famous themselves, either because of their parents or through their own means. Today we’re going to take a look at ten celebrity children who are famous. They’ve made it as big, if not bigger, as their parents!
10. Kate Hudson
Kate Hudson has one famous mother. The beautiful and funny blond is the daughter of another beautiful and funny blond: Goldie Hawn. She is married to Muse singer, Matt Bellamy and they have one child together. She has another child from a previous relationship with rocker Chris Robinson. What can we say, she loves her rockers!
9. Sofia Coppola
Francis Ford Coppola is the father of Sofia Coppola. She directed two amazing and not cult movies: Lost in Translation and The Virgin Suicides. Talent sure runs in the Coppola family! Did you know that Nicolas Cage’s real name is Nicolas Coppola? He changed it because he wanted to make it big on his own.
8. Stella McCartney
Stella McCartney is a famous and established high-fashion designer. She is the daughter of former Beatle, Sir Paul McCartney and American photographer Linda McCartney. Stella is a vegetarian and does not use any fur or leather in her creations, but she does use wool and silk. She’s also an avid supporter of PETA.
7. Nicole Richie
Nicole Richie is a fashion designer, an author and a television personality. She rose to fame in a reality show called The Simple Life where she and her friend Paris Hilton would go to the countryside and make a fool out of themselves. She is also the daughter of famous singer, Lionel Richie.
6. Michael Douglas
This year, Michael Douglas is turning 70 and his famous father, Kirk Douglas is turning 99 in December. Can you believe the genes in this family? Kirk Douglas was born Issur Danielovitch and his parents were Jewish immigrants from what is now Belarus. Kirk’s parents changed their name to Douglas when Kirk enrolled in the army.
5. Zoe Kravitz
Another of those celebrity children who are famous, Zoe Kravitz is the daughter of rock star Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet. She’s starred in X-Men: First Class (2011), Californication (2011), After Earth (2013) and the blockbuster Divergent (2014). She’s really making a name for herself and she’s just 25. I am too old if I remember her mother, Lisa Bonet being pregnant with her? I think so…
4. Enrique Iglesias
Enrique Iglesias is a heartbreaker, just like his famous father Julio Iglesias. Julio is 70 years old and he’s about to launch a new album, so Enrique has some good genes. He also has an equally attractive brother who also sings, Julio Iglasias Jr. Enrique is currently launching his new album, Sex and Love (2014).
3. Kelly Osbourne
Kelly Osbourne is the 29 year old daughter of rocker Ozzy Osbourne. She made her onscreen debut in the 2002 in the family’s outrageous reality show and later she released her first album, which was a moderate hit. She is now a fixture on E! Entertainment’s show, The Fashion Police alongside Giuliana Rancic and Joan Rivers.
2. Liv Tyler
Liv Tyler grew up thinking that rocker Todd Rundgren was her real father. Her Playboy bunny mother, Bebe Buell, would often take her to Aerosmith concerts where she eventually met Steven Tyler’s daughter, Mia. When little Liv saw how much she and Mia looked alike she started asking questions and she got the answer she was suspecting. Steven Tyler was her real father. They now have a beautiful relationship and Liv is close to Mia and Steven Tyler’s two other children from his marriage to fashion designer Teresa Barrick: Taj and Chelsea.
1. Miley Cyrus
If you grew up with Miley Cyrus and Hannah Montana then you probably don’t know who Billy Ray Cyrus is. But if you’re over 30, then Billy Ray’s Achey Breaky Heart is still humming in your ears on summer days when you’re feeling blue. That’s OK, it happens to the best of us!
