Cupid's Pulse Article: Celebrity Children Who Are Just Like Their ParentsCupid's Pulse Article: Celebrity Children Who Are Just Like Their Parents

By Laura Seaman

When you’re raised in the spotlight with your celebrity parents, it’s difficult not to get pulled into the industry one way or another. Take the Kardashians, for instance, with their entire family being in the public eye 24/7. Some celebrity children take these opportunities to make a career for themselves and make their parents proud. Here are three famous children who followed their parents’ examples and made a name for themselves in the entertainment industry:

1. Jaden Smith, son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith

Jaden Smith is becoming a big time actor just like his dad. Will Smith helped his son break into the business from a very young age, having his son star alongside him in The Pursuit of Happyness. Since then Jaden has gone off on his own and starred in films such as The Karate Kid and The Day the Earth Stood Still. However, he still takes time to work with the man who taught him the ropes, starring with his father in the sci-fi film After Earth. Just one look at the movie’s poster of the duo side-by-side and you can see that the young Smith is just like his dad, not just in acting ability but in his looks. Jaden Smith has gone from the small screen to the Imax, and it’s doubtful he’ll stop there. It’s been announced that he’s working on The Karate Kid 2, and who knows what the young actor will do next. Whatever the case may be, he’s definitely making Will Smith proud.

2. Dannielynn Birkhead, daughter of late Anna Nicole Smith and Larry Birkhead

The daughter of late model Anna Nicole Smith is showing that though her mother may be gone, her spirit is still very much alive. The adorable little girl, now seven years-old, has shown that she shares her mom’s beauty and enthusiasm for fashion. Photographers can’t get enough of this bright little star. The Birkhead father and daughter duo was seen at the Kentucky derby, the same place where Dannielynn’s parents first met. The little fashionista later went on to model for Guess Kids, a tribute to her mother’s work as a Guess girl. “For her it was something cool,” her father said in an interview. “Her mother was a Guess girl and now she is a Guess girl.” Of course, she was made to keep up with her studies while doing the shoot! For such a little girl, Birkhead has had a lot of work to do.

3. Connor Cruise, adopted son of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman

Connor Cruise, the adopted son of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, is taking after his parents step by step and movie by movie. He has only been in two films so far (Seven Pounds and Red Dawn) but that isn’t his only claim to fame. He’s getting his start as a deejay with the name C-squared. Lately, though, his name has been in the media concerning the relationship with Kidman. Despite rumors that the mother and son are estranged, Cruise says that their relationship is solid. The multi-talented Cruise has plenty of his material on YouTube and iTunes for anyone who wants to support him in his career as a DJ.
