The Beauty Of These 15 Celebrity Daughters Will Drop Your Jaw
It goes without saying that if you’re a celebrity in today’s world it’s practically impossible to have much privacy. You’re constantly in the public eye; sometimes even when you think you’re in the privacy of your own home.
Yet the same can often be the case for children of celebrities—especially children who happen to be gorgeous and talented women. Daughters of celebrities often grow up in the public eye, and are therefore somewhat accustomed to having their every move tracked and gossiped about.
And while most would consider this to be an unwelcome addition to life, there are positive aspects of being a celebrity’s daughter as well. Financial security is almost always ensured, as is that fact that their lives will be filled with indulgence, glamour, and unparalleled opportunity. And all of these perks are compounded for celebrity daughters who just so happen to be stunningly gorgeous, as is the case with the following young women.
1. Kate Hudson
The main source of Kate Hudson’s shockingly good looks would be her mother, Goldie Hawn, who was an actress, director, producer, and singer. Rising to fame through the hit television shows Rowan & Martin’s and Laugh-In, she eventually won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in the 1969 film Cactus Flower.
It’s clear that Kate inherited a great deal of her mother’s talent as well as her good looks, since the younger Ms. Hudson won widespread critical acclaim for her roles in major hit films such as Almost Famous, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Raising Helen, You, Me and Dupree, Fool’s Gold, and Bride Wars—just to name a few.
2. Paulina Gretzky
The Gretzky name, to those who know even the littlest about sports, goes hand in hand with hockey—with Wayne Gretzky being perhaps the most famous and talented hockey player of all time. Also known as “The Great One”, the elder Mr. Gretzky played twenty seasons in the NHL and is the leading scorer in NHL history, with more goals and assists than any other player.
And he can add to his list of accomplishments the creation of a bombshell daughter, Paulina, whose stunningly-good looks have landed her on the covers of dozens of magazines across the globe.
And it turns out that Paulina isn’t too shy about showing off her beauty either, as she recently caused a firestorm on social media after releasing a string of scandalous photos that left adolescent boys pleading for more.
Paulina has also launched a pop music career and continues to model on a regular basis while dating a handful of attractive bachelors.
3. Dakota Johnson
Having made quite a name for herself on the screen with major roles in films such as 50 Shades of Grey, the Social Network, 21 Jump Street, and more, Dakota Johnson’s beauty seems to be matched by a great deal of talent, which is never a bad thing.
And it seems as though both her beauty and talent can be traced back to her parents— Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson—who were both successful actors themselves. She also happens to be the granddaughter of Golden Globe winner Tippi Hedren, who stared in Hitchcock’s The Birds in 1963.
Her mother, Melanie (who’s not too harsh on the eyes herself) rose to prominence for her role in 1984’s Body Double, which earned her a National Society of Film Critics Award for Best Supporting Actress; and her role in Working Girl, which earned her a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress.
Clearly there’s no lack of talent in this family.
4. Hailie Mathers
Although some may not recognize the Mathers name immediately, this is in fact the real last name of rapper Marshall Bruce Mathers, more commonly known by his stage name, Eminem. Marshall beat the odds to become one of the most successful and widely acclaimed rappers of all time, and has won multiple awards including fifteen Grammys.
And those familiar with his music will immediately recognize the name Hailie, who has been the object of both great love and great pain in a numerous Eminem songs.
Yet Eminem rapped about Hailie when she was just a little girl, and now she’s grown up. And she’s grown up well… This beauty seems to be famous not only for being the daughter and talking point of a famous rapper, but also for being incredibly gorgeous—turning heads and stealing hearts whenever she goes out in public.
5. Corinne Bishop
The last name Bishop may not ring any immediate bells, but you almost certainly know Corinne Bishop’s father by a different last name: Foxx. Jamie Foxx. Born Eric Marlon Bishop, Eric eventually changed his name to Jamie Foxx, thinking it would be better for his acting career. And perhaps he was right, since Foxx is a recipient of an Academy Award, a BAFTA Award and a Golden Globe.
Meanwhile, his daughter Corinne seems to be following in her family’s footsteps of success, having served as the 2016 Miss Golden Globe and establishing herself in the rough and tumble world of Los Angeles print modeling—thanks to her incredible good looks and charm.
6. Nicole Richie
Our next celebrity daughter is someone who doesn’t lack in good looks or talent, and it’s thanks to both nature and nurture. Nicole Richie is the adopted daughter of the incredibly talented Lionel Richie, and the biological daughter of Karen Moss and Peter Escovedo—another incredibly talented musician who has played with the likes of Santana and Azteca.
When Nicole was born, her biological parents, although rich in talent, were too poor to take care of her. Her father, Peter, knew Lionel Richie through various musical circles and asked the more financially successful musician to take her under his wing. Lionel did just that, and when Nicole was three she moved into the Richie household, and Lionel officially adopted her when she was nine.
7. Francesca Eastwood
Yes, it’s that Eastwood. Francesca’s father, Clint Eastwood, is one of the most famous and recognizable men in Hollywood, with his incredibly deep, gritty voice and powerful character portrayals. Although Clint is a bit past his physical prime now at the age of eighty-five, he used to be quite the looker, and has won multiple Academy Awards and critical praise throughout his career.
And his daughter Francesca seems to have inherited more than a fair share of Eastwood’s looks and talent, since she’s made a name for herself as a model and an actress, as well as being a highly sought-after damsel in the Hollywood dating scene. She was even briefly married to Jonah Hill’s brother Jordan Feldstein, although the marriage didn’t last more than a week.
8. Lilly Collins
Yes, Collins is a fairly popular last name, especially in the world of entertainment. This Collins, however, is a little more known than the others, since Lilly’s father’s first name is Phil—the same Phil Collins who led the rock band Genesis and wrote the mega-hit single In the Air Tonight.
Yet even though Mr. Collins has reached unparalleled success in the music business, he claims that his biggest success has been raising his beautiful daughter, Lilly. And one can see why. Not only is Lilly Collins fantastically pretty, she’s also stared in numerous films, including The Blind Side and Mirror Mirror.
Phil has also noted that one of his greatest hits, You’ll Be In My Heart (which stayed at No. 1 on the Billboard charts for nineteen weeks) was inspired in part by the beauty and grace of his daughter.
9. Georgia May Jagger
Being the daughter of one of the most famous rock n’ roll stars of all time can’t be easy. Although it helps to be gorgeous. It also helps to have a signature gap between your teeth that can help you get noticed for a plethora of high-profile modeling campaigns, which is exactly what happened with Mick Jagger’s daughter, Georgia.
The spawn of the Rolling Stones front man has modeled for Hudson Jeans, Chanel, H&M, Versace, and more. And when she’s not modeling, Georgia is developing and endorsing a wide array of cosmetic products—making her a mogul as well as a model.
Apparently Georgia didn’t inherit much of her father’s musical talent, however. Or maybe she prefers to sing only in the shower.
10. Eva Amurri
Another offspring who doesn’t carry the last name of their famous parent(s), Eva Amurri is actually the daughter of the Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon, who is considered to be one of Hollywood’s most talented and beautiful actresses.
Many consider Amurri’s breakout role to be in the Showtime series, Californication, as the seductive stripper, Jackie. Amurri then went on to land a handful of steamy parts in Hollywood features, and quickly solidified herself as a talented, versatile actress, as well as a bit of a sex symbol.
Eva’s striking resemblance to her mother, Susan, has led to the mother-daughter duo being cast in several of the same films, including That’s My Boy.
11. Ireland Baldwin
When your last name is Baldwin—yes that Baldwin—you’re bound to grow up with some controversy. Ireland’s father, Alec Baldwin, is known to be both a fantastic and versatile actor as well as a swirling pool of chaos and dysfunction. Alec has been in hot water time and time again for making racist, homophobic, and generally nasty rants in public.
In fact, Ireland once experienced such a rant firsthand, when Alec famously left her a leaked voicemail calling her a “rude thoughtless pig.” We’re still not sure what the cause was behind the message, but we’re fairly confident that it wasn’t warranted, given how absolutely beautiful Ireland has become.
Having signed with IMG Models in 2013, Baldwin made her modeling debut in a swimwear editorial in the New York Post, and has appeared in W Magazine, Vanity Fair, and countless other publications. Hardly the career of a “pig”.
12. Zoe Kravitz
If her last name weren’t so recognizable, one would likely be able to identify her father and mother thanks purely to her flawless good looks. As the daughter of the legendary rock star Lenny Kravitz, and famed actress Lisa Bonet, Zoe was birthed with an extraordinary set of genes that leaves us all filled with genetic envy.
And thankfully Zoe inherited more than just good looks from her gorgeous parents—she’s also a talented musician and actress, having appeared in X-Men: First Class and The Divergent series.
It’s a bit tricky for Zoe to find time to act, however, since she’s in such high demand as a model, but we have faith that she’ll eventually find a balance.
13. Dylan Penn
Dylan Penn is another celebrity daughter who was lucky enough to have not one, but two talented and attractive parents. As the daughter of Robin Wright and Sean Penn, Dylan was birthed into a world of high-profile acting and celebrity. Her mother, Robin, is best known for her role as Claire Underwood in the critically acclaimed Netflix series House of Cards, and her father, Sean, has received endless adulation for his acting career and is the recipient of two Academy Awards.
Dylan is following in her parents’ footsteps and has acted in several features, including Elvis & Nixon. She also is an up-and-coming model and has appeared in campaigns for the Gap.
14. Gwyneth Paltrow
Since Gwyneth is such a famous actress in her own right, it’s easy to forget that she’s in fact the daughter of two prominent Hollywood staples: the actress Blythe Danner and the director Bruce Paltrow. Blythe is most currently known as playing the mother of Will on the famed sitcom Will & Grace, and for playing alongside Robert De Niro in all three of the Meet the Parents films.
When placed side by side, it’s no mystery where Gwyneth inherited her good looks. She and her mother share a striking resemblance to one another, and it’s clear that a great deal of talent rubbed off as well—with Gwyneth having won an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and two Screen Actors Guild awards during her career.
15. Bella Hadid
Being the daughter of a talented actress is one thing. Being the daughter of both a talented actress and a wealthy real estate mogul is another. And such is the reality for Bella Hadid—the daughter of TV star Yolanda Foster and real estate developer Mohamed Hadid.
Ms. Foster is most known for her role on the reality-television show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and Mr. Hadid is most known for developing luxury hotels and mansions in Beverly Hills.
This means, of course, that Bella has a fair share of talent and wealth. What’s not a given, however, is that she has stunningly good looks, which is also indeed the case. Bella’s exquisite beauty has led to a lucrative modeling career that in turn led to her winning the “Model of the Year” award from the Daily Front Row, and landing the cover of Harper’s Bazaar, Elle Brazil, and Vogue—just to name a few. Apparently Bella won the newborn jackpot.
