Being a child of a legendary parent comes with many perks, but the most significant disadvantage is becoming a celebrity in your own right.
Here are 15 offspring making their mark in the world: some are just beginning their careers, while others are quite successful in their own field of choice.
Son of two icons of the cinema world, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Isabelle Ajani, stayed in the show business. However, the son of iconic British actor and French beauty and actresses didn’t quite catch the acting bug.
Instead, young Day-Lewis is a singer and songwriter, and he lives and works in New York City.
Gabriel also models, and he is signed with IMG. He worked for Chanel, but ever since he was 9, his passion was music, from classical to rock n roll.
Gabriel Kane is fluent in English and French, and despite not becoming an actor, he enjoys making music for movies on both sides of the ocean.
Unlike her mother, Anna Wintour, Bee Shaffer doesn’t care about fashion, but she loves journalism.

Jake finished NYU Film School and immediately started shooting music videos and directing and writing short films.

Mickey is the daughter of Sting and Trudie Styler, and though she didn’t follow in her father’s footsteps, she decided to become an actress, like her mom.

Considering she is only 23, we are sure that we have yet to hear about Sofia’s accomplishments.
Joseph Hillstrom King
Joseph Hillstrom King, or Joe Hill, is an American writer and quite successful, which comes as no surprise since his father is none other than Stephen King.
Considering that his mom Tabitha is also a writer, Joe’s path was predestined, but he didn’t want to live in his parents’ shadows, so he came up with a new name.
Joe Hill is also a comic book writer and a bestselling author who chose to embrace family legacy once he made it on his own.
Leni Olumi Klum
Leni’s mom is a supermodel Heidi Klum, so it comes as no surprise that a teenager is already taking over the fashion world.

Leni, 17, is among many children of the original supermodels who are trying to break into the fashion world. Lily Moss and Kaia Gerber are already doing quite well, and we are sure that Leni will be just as successful.
