Celebrity magazines are aimed at dissecting every aspect of the lives of the most famous people. As hard as a celebrity tries to keep a private personal life, paparazzi always manage to feed the obsessions of the fans. Celebrity kids are also a subject of interest to the media. Their names, clothing, hobbies are all analyzed in correlation with their parents. While some celebrity parents try to give their children a normal childhood, others enjoy putting the kids in the spotlight. But what is it that makes these children special from others?
Celebrities have a natural desire to be unique. This desire is also manifested when it comes to picking a name for their child. One controversial celebrity trend is naming a baby after an inanimate object. Gwyneth Paltrow named her girl Apple, Toni Braxton went for Denim and Diezel, Rachel Griffiths and Andrew Tylor went with Banjo, Woody Allen and Mia Farrow chose Satchel and Michael Jackson nicknamed his son Blanket. Other weird names given to celebrity kids are: Kal-EL (Nickolas Cage), Pilot Inspektor (Jason Lee ), Coco (Courteney Cox and David Arquette ), Kyd (David Duchovny ), Audio Science (Shannyn Sossamon ), Sage Moonblood (Sylvester Stallone), Buddy Bear (Jamie Oliver), Bronx Mowgli (Ashlee Simpson). Although we understand a parent’s need to make his child’s life as special as possible we can’t help but think that these bizarre names are the wrong way to do it.
Another factor that helps increase the popularity of celebrity kids is fashion. When their children are young, celebrities love to dress their them according to their own personal style. Although some children don’t manifest a particular interest for fashions others enjoy it a lot. Such is the case of the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’s daughter. Ever since she was a little baby Suri was always dressed according to the latest trends. Nowadays her mother confesses that Suri picks her own clothes and even gives her red carpet fashion advice.
Last but not least people can’t help but wonder if celebrity kids will follow the same career paths as their parents. Although a lot of celebrities have had a hard time being acknowledged, their children are unlikely to face the same difficulties. Whether or not talent was passed down to the young generation, the popularity of these children will give them an unbeatable advantage. Furthermore their parents are encouraging them to pursue their dreams from an early age. Cindy Crawford’s 11 years old daughter has made the first steps into a modeling career while Will Smith’s 14 years old son has launched his own fashion line. Given their famous parents and their upbringing the future careers of these children is definitely worth watching.
