As soon as they’re born, celebrity kids are immediately thrown in the spotlight for the world to see. Many of us feel just as attached to the kids as we are to the celebrities because we get to watch them grow up right before our eyes. As those kids get older, they figure out who they are and stop being known as “______’s kid.”
Many get into the business like their parents, others carve a new path for themselves, and some avoid the spotlight entirely. Check out what some of the most recognizable celebrity kids look like today, and see if you’d even recognize them on the street.
