Whether it’s true or not (begging its own question), when an individual becomes a celebrity, they also “belong” to to the public, and they and their family are constantly in the public eye. Critics and fans watch their every move, enjoying and critiquing, essentially subscribing to their lives. From their most recent post on Instagram to the outfit they wore to the most recent major award ceremony – it all comes under scrutiny. As should be expected then, when celebrities become parents, the same public obsessively watches their children grow up as well. These famous children unintentionally inherit their parents’ fame, and in turn grow up in a life surrounded by cameras and comments.
The constant flashing of camera lights must be obnoxious! Even with the luxurious lifestyle, parents can’t hide their kids from the camera forever. In fact, some of these celebrity children mature, pursue their own interests, and become their own celebrities, some lucky enough to be seen in-front of their parent’s success. Either way, we’ve taken a second to admire the famous children that have clearly grown up especially fast, standing next to, or way in front of their parents!
