Kiyan Anthony is the only child of NBA player, Carmelo Anthony, and actress, La La Anthony. Carmelo, a small forward for the Houston Rockets, is a famed athlete with impressive recognition as a 9-time NBA All-Star. 12-year-old Kiyan seems set to follow his father’s legacy in basketball as he is actively engaged in the New York Gauchos basketball program in New York City.
Kiyan also appeared in a Jordan-brand sneaker commercial alongside his famous father. Now, we have a mini-version of Carmelo, and we’re holding out hope for him to become a brand-new basketball superstar in no time. Indeed, these skills run in the blood. There’s no denying that.
History is set to repeat itself as Shareef O’Neal is gearing towards becoming his father, Shaquille O’Neal’s modern version. Shareef plays as a power forward on his high school basketball team. His amazing playing skills have earned him numerous scholarship offers from various universities with the best basketball programs like UCLA, Georgetown, Baylor, and UCLA.
Shaquille is a retired NBA player with a stunning portfolio that includes three Finals MVP Awards and three NBA All-Defensive Team selections. With his son’s current performance in basketball, we have no doubt that Shareef will steal the spotlight in no time. Did we mention that he also got his towering height from his father? It definitely runs in the genes.

Son to super couple David and Victoria Beckham, Brooklyn exudes style and fame just like his famous parents. He pursues his passion in photography and is often spotted hanging out with celebrity kids, Jack Scott Ramsay and Rocco Ritchie.
Brooklyn’s father, David Beckham, is a retired pro footballer and became the first English player to have won league titles in four countries: England, France, Spain, and the United States. Victoria Beckham, famously known as Posh Spice of the pop group, “The Spice Girls,” is now recognized as a style icon and fashion designer. That said, it’s no wonder Brooklyn always looks dashing. We hope he’ll consider carrying on his dad’s legacy and playing football soon (fingers crossed).
Matthew Kerrigan is the eldest child of former figure skater Nancy Kerrigan. Matthew and his two other siblings know how to skate and are also engaged in other activities. Their mother was elected into the US Figure Skating Hall of Fame but perhaps more memorable than her international recognition and numerous titles and awards was the attack that she suffered in 1994.
Nancy was walking through a corridor after her practice when Shane Stant, a friend of fellow competitor Tonya Harding’s ex-husband, hit her right leg with a police baton. Tonya pleaded guilty to the attack, and Nancy has since moved on. In fact, she went back to intensive training after recovering from the traumatic incident.
