Meet the biggest breakout celebrity kids of 2017
It was a trying year, but if you were a celebrity kid like the ones in this list, you had nothing to worry about
In case you are trying to find out who had an exceptional year in 2017, then its time to look no further. the latest round of celebrity kids who just happened to all but rule the world—or, at least Instagram—this year. Some of this year's Scion Class of 2017 have been lingering in the pop culture stratosphere before this year, but it was in the past twelve months that they truly broke out.
Scroll down below to meet the genetically flawless celebrity kids who will be everywhere in the next coming years.
Kaia & Presley Gerber
Kaia Gerber is the daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford and tequila entrepreneur Rande Gerber. She made the most of her first fashion week – debuting for Raf Simons’ Calvin Klein Collection, before walking in high profile shows like Prada, Fendi, and Versace. But the biggest achievement of 2017? Getting her driver’s license.
Considering his mom is Cindy Crawford and sister is Kaia Gerber, we have a feeling that 17-year-old Presley is on his way to full-blown model stardom. Gerber made his runway debut in early 2016 at a Moschino show and is part of Dolce & Gabbana's millennial campaign. Oh, and did we mention he's currently starring in Calvin Klein's latest ad campaign alongside Bella Hadid and Zoë Kravitz?
You may have heard her name come up in the midst of Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber's crazy Instagram drama last year, but she's much more than the girl who spawned the Biebs's exit from Instagram.
Lionel Richie's youngest daughter (and half-sister to Nicole Richie) recently graced the cover of Complex and walked the Chanel fashion show alongside Cara Delevingne, Pharrell Williams, and Willow Smith. You'll be seeing her a lot more come fashion month in February. The 19-year-old started 2017 alongside fellow famous kid Anwar Hadid in a Tommy Hilfiger ad and finished alongside Kardashian-ex, Scott Disick.
Brooklyn Beckham is the son of footballer David Beckham and fashionista Victoria Beckham. Beckham had a busy 2017—he published his first collection of photographs, moved to the Big Apple to start college, and got back together with his girlfriend, Chloe Grace Moretz. Again.
And what's even more interesting is that the couple has recently sparked engagement rumors all over the internet! The rumor sparked when Chloe posted a picture of hers and BB’s on Instagram in which they’re both wearing matching rings with each other’s initials.
Frances Bean Cobain
Frances Bean Cobain is the proud daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love. Having stayed out of the spotlight for most of her life, Cobain made a very stylish public debut this year, starring in Marc Jacobs’ spring campaign and showing up to the Met Gala as his date.
In a post uploaded to her main account, @space_witch666, Cobain announced that she would be uploading cooking routines and recipes of her favorite dishes to @spacewitchin_in_thekitchen. She has already kicked off the page with Bratwurst & Butternut Squash Hash, Baked egg in an Avocado and some fan art. The recipes seem to be low-maintenance and relatively idiot-proof.
Paris Jackson, daughter of the late Michael Jackson, was also one of the most popular celebrity kid this year. Jackson is an actress, singer, and model, but after giving a passionate speech against hate groups at the 2017 VMA Awards, she’s also solidified herself as a vocal activist. She also has a pretty impressive tattoo collection.
Jackson, 19, took to Instagram to share her holiday experience with her fans on Monday. The 5ft10 stunner shared a series of shots in which she was posed with her brothers Prince, 20, and Blanket, 15, and a pal as they posed in an area that appeared to be the lobby of a hotel.
Ava Phillippe is the first daughter of Reese Witherspoon and ex-husband Ryan Phillippe. The teenager may have just made her grand debut on the arm of a prince at a debutante ball in Paris, but don’t worry, she’s still keeping it down to earth—she’s also working as a hostess at a Hollywood pizza parlor.
Wow! I am so thrilled to have had the opportunity to meet so many beautiful, kind, supportive, and passionate young women (and men!) at Le Bal. I also feel so privileged to take part in this event knowing that it is raising money for both the Seleni Institute and Enfants d’Asie, two organizations supporting very important causes. Last week felt like a dream, and I am so grateful to have so many beautiful memories from this adventure. Thank you to all involved! 💐(P.S. I know this post is super late but I am recovering from some major jetlag/getting back to school!)
Ava was among the debutantes at one of the social calendar's highlights of the year as she attended le Bal des Débutantes in the French capital. Ava's sparkling gown was by Giambattista Valli Haute Couture. Her date for the evening was the 19-year-old Maharaja of Jaipur Padmanabh Singh, a Polo playing friend of Prince William, who was resplendent in white tie and tails.
Amelia Gray & Delilah Belle Hamlin
Amelia Gray and Delilah Belle Hamlin are daughters of Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin. Instead of setting their sights on Hollywood like their actor parents, the two sisters are becoming the next Gigi and Bella of the modeling industry. The fact that both have moms who have been on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills certainly doesn't hurt comparisons.
Last month, Rinna’s 19-year-old daughter Delilah moved to New York City full-time and her other daughter Amelia Gray got her learner’s permit to drive. Both of Rinna’s daughters have modeling contracts and W Magazine reports that Amelia has signed with IMG Models, which is the same agency that represents the Hadid sisters, Bella and Gigi.
Selah Marley is the daughter of Lauryn Hill and granddaughter of Bob Marley. Marley is about as royal as they come in the music industry, so, surprise, surprise, the college student, and model is also a talented musician herself.
Last year, she took a leave of absence from N.Y.U. in March. What she was ready for were Kanye West and Karl Lagerfeld, having appeared in the last two Yeezy shows and on Chanel’s catwalk at the Hôtel Ritz in Paris. She’s also been in campaigns for Calvin Klein, Rag & Bone, and Ivy Park, Beyoncé’s activewear brand.
Clara McGregor is the daughter of Ewan McGregor. The It-Brit really did it all this year–model, legally drink, and backpack through Bali with her boyfriend.
How frickin gorgeous is my mama?? Strongest, smartest most loving woman I know. My rock. ❤️🌹 pic.twitter.com/eDVF766j1p— Clara McGregor (@ClaraMcGregor) October 25, 2017
Loyal Clara, 21, broke her silence after The Sun revealed Ewan, 46, was caught smooching his Fargo co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead last weekend. Shortly after news of the scandal broke, 22-year-old Clara posted a photo of her mum with Ewan cropped out to Twitter, writing: “How frickin gorgeous is my mama?? Strongest, smartest most loving woman I know. My rock.”
Stallone Sisters (Sistine, Sofia, and Scarlet)
The daughters of Sylvester Stallone and model Jennifer Flavin, 20-year-old Sophia, 18-year-old Sistine, and 14-year-old Scarlet, were recently named 2017's Miss Golden Globes, marking the first time that the honor has gone to three women.
Sistine is currently working on her modeling career, starring in ad campaigns, and even walking the Chanel runway earlier this month, and has broken out on her own since the Golden Globes—including a move across the country, as she just scored her own apartment in New York. Sophia is pursuing a communications degree at USC, and Scarlet is still in her early teens and unsure of where her career will take her, but we're fairly certain we'll see big things from her come her 18th birthday.
Asahd Khaled is the son of the famous rapper-singer DJ Khaled. At just 1-year-old, Khaled may very well already have a more lucrative career thank you. When he’s not busy producing his father’s albums or building up his diamond watch collection, Asahd enjoys shaking his rattle and sitting up on his own.
As if being an adorably cute baby wasn't enough, the celebrity baby is now the cover star of Paper magazine’s 2017 digital winter issue as well. Last month, the toddler and his dad also fronted Miami publication New Times.
The son of Daniel Day-Lewis and French actress Isabelle Adjani has closed out Coach's 75th-anniversary runway show, starred in H&M's 2016 holiday campaign, and appeared Dolce & Gabbana's Millenials campaign. So yeah, expect to keep seeing a whole lot from this celebrity kid, who clearly is on his way to making it big.
The 22-year-old also launched his debut single “In My Veins,” which is the first to be released off of the actor-singer’s upcoming EP, Every Scar is a Healing Place.
Recognize that perfect hair? Yep, Grace Gummer is the daughter of Meryl Streep and artist Don Gummer. The 30-year-old indie darling has appeared in plenty of under-the-radar movies, but most will recognize her as FBI agent Dominique DiPierro on Mr. Robot, investigating the world-wide banking hack orchestrated by Elliot Alderson.
She's also appeared on popular shows like American Horror Story and Amazon's Good Girls Revolt. The girl has some serious acting talent and we have a pretty good idea where she gets it from.
Dylan & Hopper Penn
The children of Sean Penn and Robin Wright aren't just the spitting image of their famous parents, they're also aspiring actors, and have popped up in a few movies over the last year or so. They have also, of course, dabbled in modeling: While Hopper recently signed a contract with Wilhelmina, Dylan has been in the business since 2014.
The celeb kids had hit the carpet with their dad at the 2017 Sean Penn & Friends Haiti Rising Gala Benefiting J/P Haitian Relief Organization held at Montage Beverly Hills in Beverly Hills, California.
