Top 10 Celebrity Children
They’re extremely cute and might one day rule the entertainment industry, but which one is the greatest? Fresh off the news that one of the Jolie-Pitt children (Vivienne, who sadly did not make this list) has been cast in a movie and the satirical “Suri Cruise’s Burn Book” being published, one question needs to be answered: which celebrity offspring reigns supreme? Here are Cadenza’s top 10 celebrity children—and unfortunately, no, that’s not a reality show in the making (at least not yet).
10. Harlow Madden, age 4
This adorable child starts our list because of her incredibly cute curls (alliteration much?) and her reforming effect on her mother, Nicole Ritchie. Given both of her parents’ tumultuous past, Harlow is certain to be a tabloid regular in upcoming decades. Let’s just hope she doesn’t become best friends with Paris Hilton’s future progeny.
9. Violet Affleck, 6 years old
Aside from bearing an uncanny resemblance to mom Jennifer Garner, Violet Affleck is probably the most “normal” celebrity child on the list. In addition to frequently being seen running errands with her mother, Violet has made an important addition to her wardrobe: glasses. She’s growing up so quickly.
8. Moses Martin, age 6
Moses makes our list simply because his name is Moses—and because he is the child of Oscar-winner Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin. With his beautiful blonde hair and (hopefully) his dad’s musical chops, Moses will probably be making headlines in seven to 10 years.
7. Harper Beckham, age 1
Although it was fierce competition within the Beckham family as to who would make the list, Harper was victorious for the simple reason that she is the first girl and will therefore inherit her mother’s “posh” style (pun-fully and shamelessly intended). Although Harper only recently took her first steps, we are sure her soccer-star dad David Beckham will have her out on the field in no time.
6. Sean Federline, age 6
It’s okay, Sean. We forgive you for having Kevin Federline as a father. Born during Britney Spears’ “off” years, Sean is known mostly for once sitting on Britney’s lap while she was driving. Even though Britney and Kevin have matured through the whole kid-raising experience, we pray for the adorable Sean. In an interview last February, Federline stated that he plans to keeps his kids grounded by having them work at McDonald’s. Because that is an obvious and logical way to keep children grounded.
5. Kingston Rossdale, age 6
One of the only boys to make the list, Kingston is already following in his famous mother’s (Gwen Stefani) footsteps. Recently seen sporting blue hair in New York City, this spunky kid is brother to Zuma, 3.
4. Willow Smith, age 11
Not only does this preteen know how to “Whip [Her] Hair,” she is also an accomplished actress, having played roles in “I Am Legend” and “Kit Kittredge: An American Girl.” Willow has everything it takes to make it in Hollywood: connections, money, an eclectic style and a (allegedly) Scientologist upbringing. Fun fact: Willow was born on Halloween. I wonder what she dresses up as every year…
3. Blue Ivy Carter, age 8 months
I give special attention to any celebrity child with Houston roots. But regardless of her mother’s hometown, Blue Ivy Carter makes our list because her hip-hop royalty parents are already in the process of trademarking her name. According to US Weekly, Jay-Z and Beyoncé plan to use the name Blue Ivy to market a line of baby products. She also was the youngest person to appear on a Billboard chart. All before her first birthday.
2. Suri Cruise, age 6
Based on the strength of her “Burn Book,” Suri Cruise should be number one. Unfortunately she is not the author of the book—that belongs to Allie Hagan, who also operates a blog with the same title. Anyhow, Suri Cruise deserves credit for having a better wardrobe at age 6 than I do at age 19. And for tolerating Tom Cruise as a father. And for getting through her parents’ much publicized divorce. Let’s just hope she is able to survive the next step in her journey to becoming a true fashionista: elementary school in the Big Apple.
1. Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, age 6
Any baby in the Brangelina clan is immediately thrust into the spotlight, but Shiloh gets special attention because she was the “original” biological offspring. Whether for her boyish style or angelic face, Shiloh is the one to watch in her multicultural broad. But still pay attention to Maddox, Zahara, Pax, Vivienne and Knox—come on, they are the most beautiful/talked-about family out there.
