Do You Know Which Celebrities Had Famous Parents?

Long gone are the days when the children would inherit their parent’s profession; now, a farmer’s child may not become a farmer and a teacher’s child may not necessarily become a teacher. But is this saying really true? Of course not! Even now, some children take up their parents’ craft, especially if their parents are rich and famous. Yes, believe it or not, there is a reason why many celebrities are considered to be ‘nepotism babies.’ It’s because they’ve made their way into Hollywood thanks to their influential and famous parent(s) who used their fame and money to give opportunities to their little ones.

However, this doesn’t mean that these celebrities are particularly bad at what they do. Some of these celebrities on this list are quite well-established and are known for their work and amazing skills. But, it’s safe to say that their famous parents have played a significant role in getting them to where they are right now. If you want to know more about who these celebrities are, then keep on reading.

1. Brooke Shields

Brooke Shields is perhaps best known for her role in the 1978 film “Pretty Baby,” but the actress has been the center of controversy during her Hollywood career. From her risky photoshoots to her roles in films like “The Blue Lagoon,” Shields is no stranger to having people talk about her. Brooke is loosely related to Italian royalty; her father happened to be a successful businessman and a Revlon executive and her grandmother was the daughter of an Italian prince. However, after her parents got divorced, Shield’s modeling and acting career became the major income source for her mother.

2. Cara Delevingne

For some people, it might be shocking to find Cara Delevingne’s name on this list, mainly because she has always been considered one of the most down-to-earth celebrities with her laid-back style and bubbly personality. Cara’s mother was a prestigious socialite who happened to be friends with British royalty—in particular, Princess Margaret. Her maternal grandfather was a newspaper publisher for both the Daily Express and The Evening Standard. Cara’s father also came from a well-established family and had connections with the Royal Family as well.
