Celebrity children live life in the limelight and have to navigate the scrutiny of growing up in the public eye. Their parents have the best genes and end up producing beautiful children. These kids have been given all of the advantages of inheriting their mom and dad’s good looks. From red carpet events to a candid snapshot, the world watches these gorgeous children grow up right before their eyes. They are mirror image beauties who make us all do a double take between them and mom or dad. So many beautiful offspring of the rich and famous have striking looks.
Yet, there are times when a celebrity kid is not as pretty or handsome as their parents. They have big shoes to fill and some of them suffer from living in their parents’ shadows. It cannot be easy to have a larger-than-life mom with flawless skin. It has to be difficult to grow up with a dad with a perfectly chiseled chin. The cameras are always rolling on these children and often times, the pressure to be perfect is hard to handle. Most teenagers find themselves going through an awkward stage and celebrity kids are no different. They just so happen to have a huge audience watching them grow up.
A lot of these kiddos mature into adults and grow into themselves. Many of them overcome adversity and go on to make a name for themselves in the entertainment industry. Here is a list of 8 Stunning Children Of The Rich And Famous And 8 Uggos.
16 Cindy Crawford's Daughter - Kaia Gerber
You may think that you’re seeing double when you look at this photograph of supermodel, Cindy Crawford, standing next to her daughter, Kaia Gerber. This young lady is the spitting image of her mom and has definitely inherited her mother’s good looks. She was lucky enough to get her genes from Cindy. At just 15-years-old, Kaia is following in Crawford’s glamorous footsteps and taking the modeling world by storm.
She has already modeled for Teen Vogue, Marc Jacobs, and Miu Miu, just to name a few. She’s also been on the cover of Pop Magazine and Vogue Paris with her mom. This stunner knows how to give good face. I guess that when you’re mentored by the flawless Cindy Crawford, you might know a thing or two about modeling. This beautiful young lady has a bright future ahead of her and I can’t see where her modeling career takes her.
15 Nicholas Cage's Son - Weston Cage
Actor, Nicholas Cage’s son, Weston Cage, has a less than attractive look going on. His dad may be a handsome super star but it appears that he was cheated when it came to adopting his father’s style. Maybe his goth look can be explained by the fact that he was the lead singer of a heavy metal band, Eyes Of Noctum. He also recorded a solo album of industrial music.
Turns out that Weston is just as bad as he looks and has had several run-ins with the law. He was arrested twice in 2011 on domestic abuse charges. He found himself in trouble again in 2017 when he was given a DUI and fled the scene of a minor accident. Weston and Nicholas have had a tumultuous relationship. So, that might explain why he looks so rough. I wouldn’t want to run into this guy in a dark alley.
14 Katie Holmes And Tom Cruise's Daughter - Suri Cruise
Who can forget that time when Tom Cruise jumped on Oprah’s couch to express his love for Katie Holmes? Their relationship may have gone south but they did manage to produce a beautiful child. Suri Cruise charmed the world when she was born. Her debut photograph was taken by the famous photographer, Annie Leibovitz and graced the cover of Vanity Fair. Her face was seen peaking out from beneath a jacket that was cradled by Cruise and Holmes.
Her parents have divorced but we all remain dazzled by her beautiful face and dark hair. It’s amazing how much she looks like her mom, Katie Holmes. Suri is a paparazzi darling and is often photographed looking like a fashionista as she casually walks the streets of New York City hand in hand with her mother. She has a penchant for wearing bows in her hair and manages to always be adorable.
13 Christy Brinkley And Billy Joel's Daughter - Alexa Joel
Alexa Joel is the daughter of supermodel, Christy Brinkley and musician, Billy Joel. Let’s face it, Alexa is far from ugly but, if you could choose between looking like her beautiful mother or taking after her scruffy dad, who would you pick? We all know that she got the raw end of this deal. The media has been quick to scrutinize her looks but Alexa has a good head on her shoulders and has made a name for herself as a musician and an artist.
She recently posted a body positive message on Instagram that proves this girl is beautiful on the inside. She wrote, “Let’s STOP degrading and START celebrating ourselves and others, from both the inside AND out." She went on to call out how cruel social media can be and clapped back when she wrote, “For within our distinctions, our quirks, and our self-perceived ‘flaws’… therein lies the beauty.”
12 Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt's Daughter - Shiloh Jolie Pitt
Sparks flew between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt when they acted together on the film, Mr. and Mrs. Smith. They created a controversy when Pitt left his wife, Jennifer Aniston, for Jolie. The world waited with baited breath to see what an offspring of these two gorgeous actors would produce. We all got our answer when Jolie gave birth to their first daughter, Shiloh Jolie Pitt.
It seems that this lucky girl got the best genes from both of her parents because she is beautiful. Shiloh has her daddy’s blue eyes and her mommy’s full lips. She was a stunning baby and has grown into such a cute little girl. Shiloh is a bit of a tomboy so we often see her at movie premiers wearing suits instead of frilly dresses and I think that it suits her just fine. Yet, hiding beneath that tomboy attitude is a sweet face.
11 Ozzy Osbourne's Daughter - Kelly Osbourne
Ozzy Osbourne is known for biting the heads off of live bats on stage but is also the famous father of Kelly Osbourne. Thanks to the reality show, The Osbournes, fans got a glimpse of his family life with Sharon, Kelly, and, Jack. We all sat in awe as we watched Ozzy try to lead his crazy brood. His daughter was a teenager at the time and was going through a bit of an awkward stage, as most teenagers do.
From her stocky build to her insane goth look, Kelly pretty much grew up in front of us. She admitted to abusing drugs during the filming of the show so it’s no wonder that she didn’t look her best. We all know that she grew up, got clean and sober, died her hair lavender, and matured into quite a pretty young lady. Yet, we’ll always remember that frumpy teenage girl.
10 Lisa Bonet And Lenny Kravtiz's Daughter - Zoe Kravitz
Zoe Kravitz is the daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet. This girl is so elegant and lovely. She really lucked out and inherited the best parts of both of her parents. She is a dead ringer for her mom with her beautiful complexion and amazing lips. Zoe has the same chiseled bone structure as her rocker dad. From her awesome dread locks to her steamy eyes, those two made a pretty little girl together.
Zoe was also given her parents’ inane talents and is an actress in her own right. She’s stared in films such as X-men: First Class and the Divergent series. She also landed part in television series like Californication and a handful of other films. Something tells me that this fresh faced lady is just getting started and we’ll be seeing much more of her in the future. She has the kind of looks that last a lifetime.
9 Olivia Newton John's Daughter - Chloe Lattanzi
I may be aging myself here but when I was a little girl, there was no one hotter than Olivia Newton John. She had it all, feathered hair, the voice of an angel, and the smoothest dance moves. One would think that her offspring would be just as alluring as she is. Her daughter, Chloe Lattzani, had big shoes to fill and the pressure of being the child of someone in the limelight took it’s tole.
Chloe suffered from anorexia when she was a teenager and sought treatment. Later, when in her 20’s, she began abusing Cocaine. She has since recovered and married her personal trainer, who helped her with her addiction and body issues. Chloe has undergone several plastic surgery procedures and the results were less than natural. Hopefully, she will come into her own and not give in to the pressure of living in her famous mother’s shadow.
8 David And Victoria Beckham's Son - Romeo Beckham
Golden couple, David and Victoria Beckham, have four beautiful children together. The entire family is ridiculously good looking, just like their famous parents. Yet, their second child, Romeo Beckham, totally lives up to his name. This kid is cute. With two superstar parents, his dad plays soccer and his mom was a Spice Girl and is a fashion designer, in case you’ve been living under a rock, it’s no wonder that this teenager hit it big in the looks department.
Romeo worked his first modeling gig when he was just 10-years-old and it wasn’t just for some small company. He became the face of the high profile British fashion giant, Burberry. Fans couldn’t believe this kid as he was donned head to toe in their classic tan, black, and red plaid clothes. He’s also a favorite on Instagram, posting pics of his fabulous life. Romeo Beckham is a kid to watch.
7 George Lucas' Daughter - Amanda "Powerhouse" Lucas
Amanda Lucas is the daughter of director, George Lucas. When your father is the director and creator of the popular Star Wars films, you will more than likely face scrutiny. It can’t be easy living in the limelight when you’re a kiddo. Amanda was an awkward child often teased for being, in her own words, “a fat wimpy kid." She decided to take matters into her own hands and found an interest in martial arts, hoping the exercise would help her lose weight.
Amanda discovered a love of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Thai boxing, and wrestling. She ended up pushing her own limits and went pro in the MMA. She even earned herself the nickname, Amanda “Powerhouse” Lucas, for her strength and fighting ability. This is one girl who didn’t allow herself to be limited by Hollywood’s beauty standards and made a name for herself, despite being bullied as a young girl.
6 Kimora Lee Simmons' Daughter- Ming Lee Simmons
Ming Lee Simmons is the daughter of Kimora Lee Simmons and Russel Simmons. The two divorced but had two beautiful daughters together, Ming and Aoki. Both of the girls are adorable but their oldest, Ming, has grown up to be a stunner. I suppose that’s to be expected when your mother is a gorgeous model. Not only that, but the woman has a good head on her shoulders too. Kimora is also a fashion mogul and is the CEO of the brand, Baby Phat. Ming is no stranger to glam as she grew up walking the cat walk with her mother during fashion shows.
Ming recently went to prom and dazzled in a photograph shared by Kimora. She has matured into a beautiful teenager and people could hardly believe that this poised young lady was the same cute little girl they’d watch grow up on the stage and small screen.
5 Bette Midler's Daughter - Sophie Von Haselburg
Bette Midler is a talented actress who is known for her beautiful singing voice but not so much for her looks. It’s no surprise that her daughter, Sophie Van Haselberg, looks just like her. The apple didn’t fall far from the tree and the two are almost a mirror image of each other. Midler struggled with being told that she was ugly her entire life and Sophie is well versed in handling the scrutiny from watching her mom navigate fame and criticism.
Sophie has overcome the same harsh beauty standards that Bette struggled with but has not let it stop her from making a name for herself. She landed a role in the Woody Allen film, Irrational Man, and also found success on the stage in several Broadway productions. Not only that, but she is one smart cookie. Sophie attended Yale University, proving that beauty is more than skin deep.
4 Reese Witherspoon And Ryan Phillipe's Daughter - Ava Phillipe
Ava Phillipe is the daughter of Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillipe. She has grown up before our very eyes and looks like her mom’s clone in almost every photograph of the two of them together. Ava inherited her mom’s blue eyes and signature blond hair. The duo often walk the red carpet together for premiers of Reese’s movies and make the world take a second look because their appearances are so alike.
Ava also looks a lot like her dad, Ryan Phillipe. He recently shared that people often mistake them as siblings, which freaks Ava out. She seems to take it all in stride, but even her younger brother, Tennessee, gets confused by how much she looks like her mama. Reese told Southern Living Magazine, “Ava is like another parent to Tennessee, like his other mother. I think sometimes he even gets confused — he told Ava ‘Happy Mother’s Day!’”
3 Susan Sarandon's Daughter - Eva Amurri
Actress, Susan Sarandon, is known for her bright red hair and curvy body. The beautiful actress gave birth to her daughter, Eva Amurri, with Franco Amurri who is an Italian film director. Eva didn’t quite get her mother’s stunning looks and grew up as a bit of an ugly duckling. When you’re mother is as beautiful as Susan Sarandon, it can’t be easy to go through an awkward stage. She was skinny and plain. Yet, she didn’t let her looks get in the way of starting her own acting career.
Eva came into her own and matured into quite a lovely woman. She has made a name for herself in television and films. Yet, we all know that she will never be cast as the beauty. She famously fired a nanny for hitting on her husband, so it’s obvious that she could be a little bit insecure about her looks.
2 Eddie Murphy's Daughters - Bria And Shayne Murphy
Comedian Eddie Murphy has two daughters with his ex-wife, Nicole Mitchell. Bria and Shane Murphy lucked out and inherited their mom and dad’s good looks. Their mom, Nicole, is a beautiful woman who is an international fashion model, so they got her good genes. They have flawless skin, beautiful brown eyes, and amazing bone structure. Eddie Murphy is handsome as well, so it’s no shock that these girls are so stunning.
Both of them have grown up in the limelight and have become drop dead gorgeous. Bria and Shane have lit up the red carpet at the BET Awards, showing off their amazing curves in skin tight gowns. The duo also posed for a racy lingerie spread, further cementing their quest to take over the world with their hotness. These two have become celebrities in their own right and something tells me that we haven’t seen the last of these two women.
1 Meryl Streep's Daughter - Mamie Gummer
Meryl Streep is an Academy Award winning actress who has three daughters and a son with husband, Don Gummer. Her daughter, Mamie Gummer, could be considered to be plain by Hollywood’s standards. Even though Meryl is a very talented actress who has a career that spans decades, she isn’t really known for playing the most beautiful characters. Her chiseled chin and bone structure are less than feminine.
It seems that Mamie inherited her mom’s looks and is almost a mirror image of Meryl. Just like her mom, she managed to overcome the hand that she was dealt and became an actress as well. She stared in the film, Get Ready For Ricki, with her mother. Mamie also landed roles on the small screen in The Good Wife and other shows. One has to wonder, would she still get these parts if she wasn’t the daughter of Meryl Streep?
