It is not an uncommon thing to see a lot of celebrities running with the same crowd all the time. Hollywood is just like school. There are cliques in high school and there are cliques even in Hollywood.
So, what happens when a celebrity finds bestie status with another celebrity? Well, their children become besties too, of course.
When a child is born in the celebrity world, it typically means they are gifted with three perks: financial security, disposable income and the lovely nuisance of being followed around by paparazzi all the time who want to document and exploit their every move, as well as their parents.
Two of the three of those perks are not so bad.
This is probably why a lot of celebrity children are drawn to one another. They know what it's like to have famous parents. They know the struggle of being on the road, or of others knowing more about their parents than they do, or of constantly having to watch what they say or do out in public because 9 times out of 10, there is someone watching their every move and documenting it.
Some of these children start their playdates while still in diapers and be it them having tummy time together, getting into all kinds of messes while they are still in diapers, or parties and future project opportunities, they inspire squad goals.
