One of the strange functions of celebrity is that famous folks’ children grow up in the spotlight. Some parents shield their kids from publicity as long as possible and we only get to see those celebrity kids grown up. Others are exposed to the public right away. Think for instance of Reese Witherspoon‘s daughter Ava and son Deacon who occasionally show up on Witherspoon’s Instagram. We’ve got to see those kids grow through the years. Other celebrities like Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard go the opposite route and do their best to protect their kids’ images.
Regardless of how these celebrity kids finally become introduced to the public, one thing is always fun to marvel at: just how grown up they are and how much they resemble their celebrity parents. We decided to round up some recent images of celebrity kids grown up to pair them with images from their younger years. It’s great to get a side-by-side look at just how much these celebrity children have changed through the years! Take a look below!
Take a Look at These Celebrity Kids Grown Up!
Kendall & Kylie Jenner
Viewers watched Kendall, 25, and Kylie Jenner, 24, grow up from preteens on Keeping Up With The Kardashians to accomplished businesswomen. Today, the two are building their business empires, following in their older sisters’ and mom, Kris Jenner’s, direction.
Sasha & Malia Obama
Kaira & Presley
Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber’s kids are following in moms’ modeling career footsteps! Kaia, 20, and brother Presley, 22, are already making a splash in the modeling world.
Michael Jackson’s only daughter Paris Jackson turned 23 on April 3. She is following in her legendary father’s footsteps and pursuing a career in music. She is just one of the celebrity kids grown up who hasn’t changed all that much over the last decade!
The daughter of actress Heather Locklear and Bon Jovi rocker Richie Sambora, Ava Sambora is no stranger to red carpets! She’s been to many premiers and events with her famous parents through the years. She is following in mama’s footsteps by pursuing a career in modeling and acting.
Liv & Caleb Freundlich
Julianne Moore’s two children are all grown up today! Liv, 19, and Caleb, 23, are still spitting images of Moore who shares her babies with director Bart Freundlich.
In 2002, Elizabeth Hurley gave birth to her son Damian Hurley. It’s hard to believe that 19 years have passed since then. He’s acted alongside his mother and recently signed a modeling contract to pursue modeling as a career as well. It should come as no surprise as he’s the spitting image of his mother.
Jamie Foxx’s daughter Corrine Foxx, 27, walked down many red carpets at her father’s side through her childhood. Today, she still accompanies dad down the carpet but she’ll be at her own movie premiers soon enough. She’s a model and an actor that we should expect to see in all sorts of projects in the coming years.
We bring you one of the best graphics for this list of celebrity kids grown up courtesy of Pamela Bach, who created this collage of imagery for her daughter Hayley Hasselhoff, 29. Her father is none other than David Hasselhoff. If it was not abundantly clear from the center picture of Hayley, she has a modeling career.
The Brits have long been obsessed with Victoria and David Beckham‘s children. Their eldest, Brooklyn, 22, has grown into a confident young man in recent years and looks more and more like his famous father by the day. Like his father, Brooklyn models and has also taken up photography.
Frances Bean Cobain
Sosie Bacon has been an industry insider from a very young age! She was often seen with parents Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick on red carpets and other glitzy events. The actor, 29, has acted alongside both of her parents and starred in hits like 13 Reasons Why.
Dwayne Johnson‘s eldest child Simone Johnson recently turned 20 in August. As with so many of these celebrity kids grown up, Simone is also following in her famous parent’s footsteps. She has dabbled in WWE and also models.
Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin share Ireland Baldwin, 26, who is an actor and model just like her famous parents. She is one of the celebrity kids grown up that we’ve got to see on the red carpet with her father often in recent years.
Daughter of the late actor Robin Williams, Zelda Williams, 32, is following in her father’s footsteps today and pursuing a career in the entertainment industry. In addition to being an actor, she is also a write, producer, and director.
Pierce Brosnan and wife Keeley Shaye Brosnan used to take their eldest son with them to red carpet events, and they still do, but today it almost feels like they will be accompanying Dylan Brosnan soon. In addition to modeling, the 24-year-old just completed film school at USC. He’s one of the celebrities kids grown up who is poised to have an equally frutiful career as his famous father.
Yes, Pierce Brosnan’s other son was blessed by the Dalai Lama. Totally normal celebrity stuff! Paris Brosnan, 20, is also a succesful model who also has an interest in filmmaking.
Ella Bleu Travolta
The daughter of John Travolta and Kelly Preston, Ella Bleu, 21, has been a fixture on the red carpets her parents have walked down. But, today, she’s ready to start an entertainment career of her own. She’s started in a couple of films with her father but we expect her to break out in coming years.
Isabella & Sophia Strahan
Michael Strahan‘s twin daughters Isabella and Sophia are celebrity kids grown up that still have a little growing to do! The 16-year-olds will be familiar to you if you’ve ever seen the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards as he has made it a bit of tradition to bring them along (or perhaps they’re bringing him).
Rumer, Scout, & Tallulah Willis
Demi Moore and Bruce Willis’ daughters Rumer, Scout and Tallulah could not avoid the spotlight growing up as children to two of Hollywood’s brightest stars. All three siblings are working in the entertainment industry, following in their very famous parents’ footsteps.

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s children Jaden, 23, and Willow, 20, have never been too far from the flashing lights. These kids are already successful musicians and actors with both getting an early start and some helpful hints from their superstar parents. These celebrity kids grown up will always be stars in our eyes!
Ava & Deacon Phillippe
Reese Witherspoon and ex, Ryan Phillippe share two children together and neither of them has ever been too far from the limelight. Ava, 22, and Deacon, 18, both got their parents star quality and we expect them to go far! These celebrity kids grown up seemed to happen over night!
