11 Celebrities’ Kids Who’ve Grown Up in Just the Blink of an Eye

11 months ago

Kids grow up extremely fast — it’s a well-known fact — but it seems that the kids of celebrities grow up even faster. It feels as if it was only yesterday when Angelina Jolie adopted her kids or when Johnny Depp announced the birth of his daughter. But today, these kids are already grown-up and have even started to build their own careers.

We at Bright Side decided to see what the kids of famous parents look like today as well as what they’re occupied with.

Maddox Jolie-Pitt

Maddox was adopted by Angelina Jolie in 2002 in Cambodia at the age of 7 months. He is the first out of 3 of Jolie’s adopted kids. Today, Maddox is a handsome guy who has already producedmovie called First They Killed My Father together with his famous mother. The movie was nominated for 9 awards and won 3 of them. Maddox also works as an actor.

Paris Jackson

Paris Jackson is the only daughter of Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe. Born in 1998, Paris is 23 years old now. She works as a model, actress, singer, and musician. She acted in movies, such as Gringo (2018), and appeared in various TV shows, including The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The Oprah Winfrey Show.

Lily-Rose Depp

The daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis is confidently conquering the world of cinematography and can already brag about winning the “Best Actress” award at the 4th Los Angeles Film Awards. Lily has already acted in almost 10 movies, such as The King (2019), A Faithful Man (2018), and The Dancer (2016).

Zahara Marley Jolie-Pitt

Born in Ethiopia, Zahara was adopted by actress Angelina Jolie in 2005. Now Zahara is 16 years old and she can already boast a couple of movie credits. Zahara herself dreams of becoming a model.

Dylan Brosnan

Dylan is the son of Pierce Brosnan and Keely Shaye Brosnan, born in 1997. Following in his father’s footsteps, Dylan is trying himself at cinematography and acting. You can see him in movies like Out of Reach (2015), Poisoning Paradise (2017), and The Young Motivators Club (2018).

Rumer Willis

Rumer is the eldest of 3 daughters of actress Demi Moore and actor Bruce Willis. She started her acting career in 1995 at the age of 7 with the comedy-drama, Now and Then, and has already acted in more than 20 movies since then. One of her last works was in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood where she played Joanna Pettet.

Liv Freundlich

Liv is the second child of actress Julianne Moore and her director husband, Bart Freundlich. Just like many celebrity kids, she decided to start her career with acting. Her debut was in the movie, Trust the Man, directed by her father, where she acted together with her famous mother and her brother, Caleb.

Zoë Kravitz

Zoë is the daughter of actor-musician Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet. Zoë has a successful career in acting, and she is also a singer and model. She has already worked with famous brands, including Tiffany & Co., Vera Wang, Balenciaga, and Calvin Klein. In 2019, she married the actor, Karl Glusman, but divorced him 18 months later.

Patrick Schwarzenegger

Patrick Arnold Shriver Schwarzenegger was born in 1993 and is the son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver. Patrick is a grand-nephew of U.S. President John F. Kennedy by his mother’s line. He now works as a model and actor. He even dated the singer, Miley Cyrus, back in 2015.

Brandon Thomas and Dylan Jagger Lee

Brandon and Dylan are the sons of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee. Brandon has appeared in 3 movies while Dylan has only shown up in one. Perhaps the boys are searching for their life mission and we’ll hear about them more soon.

It seems like all of these celebrities’ kids have tried themselves at acting in at least one movie. If your parents were celebrities, would you try to make it in their sphere of work or would you opt to do something totally different?

Another article delves into the remarkable bond between Angelina Jolie and her adopted son, Maddox. Their journey, from adoption to Maddox’s adulthood, is a testament to Jolie’s dedication as a mother and her respect for her children’s individual identities.

id love to have such an opportunity opened up by your patents. but if I wasn't into their profession, then I'd go my own way


Paris Jackson looks so strange to me, like her dad obviously had loads of changes made to his body but i wonder what the mother looks like because she doesn't look like MJ at all


It's cool to see the Jolie-Pitt kids being happy with their new life after adoption!
