First they gave us Eyes Wide Shut, Salt, and the moonwalk.
Then came the offspring – the children of celebrities.
There are dozens of household names we all know purely because their parents are famous – think Sunday Rose, Maddox and Pax and even Blanket (children of Nicole Kidman, Brangelina and Michael Jackson, respectively).
Do the children of these celebrities lead normal lives? Let’s check out some examples of infant celebrities.
The master moonwalker, single-glove wearer and undisputed King of Pop was also the father of three.
Are you paying attention? These names get confusing – first there was Michael Joseph Jackson Jr. (who most commonly goes by the name of Prince), followed by sister Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson, then the baby, Prince Michael Jackson II (who we all know as Blanket).
These kids have hardly had a normal upbringing. From being dangled over the edge of a Berlin hotel balcony, to reportedly sharing an annual $8 million in pocket money, the Jackson three are constantly in the spotlight. According to the New York Post, these teens reportedly have adult appetites when it comes to spending, splashing out on holidays, gifts for friends, flashy penthouse suites and more.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Born to two of the world’s biggest names in current pop culture, North West is already soaking up the spotlight.
Before her first birthday, baby North had been given a miniature Lamborghini to match her dad’s. She wears Lorraine Schwartz earrings valued at more than $50,000, and most recently, her parents have reportedly hired a tailor especially for the little tot. At the age of 16 months, North is being dressed in outfits specifically designed to match those of her mother. That’s when she’s not wearing designer outfits sent from around the world, that is.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
What little girl doesn’t love to dress up like a princess? The main difference here is that those sparkling jewels in Suri Cruise’s jewellery box didn’t come from a packet.
For her third birthday, guests received goodie bags that included 18 karat gold and sterling silver necklaces with sapphires from MIJA Jewelry. When Suri was five, her parents bought her a treehouse – complete with electricity, running water and shag carpets.
But is any of this really any surprise? The famous names and faces we know so well look to their babies as if they were the celebrities. That’s because for every mother or father, their child is a little star, and you can guarantee they are just like every other parent in that they want the very best for their children.
Would you want your kids to grow up with this kind of lifestyle?
