The legendary Celine Dion — the voice of Titanic’s “My Heart Will Go On” — needs no introduction. But did she pass down her incredible talents to her children? This seems to be the case with her eldest son, Rene Charles Angélil — except his musical style is worlds apart from his mother’s.
Rene is a rapper in the making, with an album called “CasiNo. 5” under his belt. In 2018, he released five singles on SoundCloud, with “Catwalks” touching over 100,000 plays that year. Mother and son are incredibly supportive of each other’s lives and careers.
Pierce Brosnan & Dylan Brosnan
Pierce Brosnan may be best known for his portrayal of James Bond and Remington Steele, but he is a devoted family man off-screen. Brosnan has five children from his two marriages to Cassandra Harris and Keely Shaye Smith. Dylan and Paris were born from the latter.
While having Pierce Brosnan as a father and gene provider helps, Dylan has made a name for himself through hard work. He’s an accomplished model, filmmaker, and singer-songwriter. Photographer Hedi Slimane discovered Dylan, after which he went on to model for Yves Saint Laurent and Burberry and graced the cover of Elle Russia.
Lisa Rinna & Delilah Belle Hamlin
Lisa Rinna rose to prominence in the ’90s as a star of "Days of Our Lives" and "Melrose Place." She and Harry Hamlin have been married since 1997 and welcomed two daughters, Delilah and Amelia, not long after.
Delilah made her runway debut for Tommy Hilfiger at New York Fashion Week in 2016. She has since walked in shows for big fashion houses and also appeared on the covers of Elle, Harper's Bazaar, and Vogue. The family is very close, helping each other cope with the darker aspects of fame.
Ryan Philippe & Deacon Philippe
Everyone knows that Reese Witherspoon and her daughter, Ava, have an uncanny resemblance. But her son, Deacon, looks exactly like his father, Ryan Phillippe! He’s also following in the footsteps of his famous parents.
Deacon landed his first acting role on Season 3 of Netflix's “Never Have I Ever.” The young star was making music long before. Deacon made his music debut in 2020 with “Long Run,” which featured Nina Nesbitt. The song even made it into the top 20 iTunes charts.
Jada Pinkett Smith & Willow Smith
Think Hollywood royalty and power couple Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith immediately come to mind. Jada and her daughter, Willow, share a particularly close bond. In an interview, Jada shared she was stricter with Willow than Jaden because Black women "get judged on everything" and need to work twice as hard.
Growing up famous can be excruciating, but Willow has taken fame in her stride, just like her mother. The young star made her debut when she was 10 with her single "Whip My Hair," which received millions of views across multiple YouTube channels.
