Rising Stars: 5 Celebrity Kids Enter Showbiz

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

This post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

With the recent news that Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith‘s daughter Dakota Johnson, 23, will star as Anastasia Steele in the much anticipated film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, we’re taking a look at 5 celebrities and their very own rising stars. 

If you were in show business, would you want your children to follow in your footsteps? Check out which celeb parents have encouraged their children to enter the wild world of fame and fortune.

Melanie Griffith

Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson’s daughter Dakota Johnson, 23, followed family tradition by becoming an actress.

Her grandmother, Tippi Hedren, was one of Hitchcock’s cool blondes and starred in Marnie and The Birds, and her mom was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in Working Girl.

And just like her famous mom, Dakota was a Miss Golden Globe.

But on Monday, author E. L. James Tweeted, “I am delighted to let you know that the lovely Dakota Johnson has agreed to be our Anastasia in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.”

Dakota is a model-turned-actress who has been seen in The Social Network and the short-lived sitcom Ben and Kate.

Andie MacDowell

St. Elmo’s Fire actress Andie MacDowell and ex-husband Paul Qualley are parents to three kids: Justin, 27, Rainey, 24, and Sarah Margaret, 18.

While Justin lives in Montana and training to be an English teacher, her two daughters are breaking into the business.

The youngest – just known as Margaret – is a model.

“Wherever she ends up, I know I’ll never have to worry about her,” Andie said of her youngest child. “I let her move to New York City alone aged 16, because I knew it was right for her. She’s just a really good kid. I think it’s partly the discipline from dancing and partly her personality, but I’ve never had to tell her to do her homework and never had to worry about her getting in trouble.”

She added: “She’s so reliable and motivated. She’s really got her head screwed on.”

Meanwhile, Rainey bestowed the title of Miss Golden Globe in 2012, and has starred in Mighty Fine, Falcon Song, and Mothers Day.

Will Smith

Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith are all-for their kids entering the family business. Both of their children – son Jaden, 15, and daughter Willow, 12 – have graced the big screen.

Jaden costarred with his father in The Pursuit of Happyness, appeared alongside Keanu Reeves in The Day the Earth Stood Still, and starred in the remake of the Karate Kid. Willow made her acting debut alongside her papa in I Am Legend and later lit up the big screen in Kit Kittredge: An American Girl.

So what does Will think of his kids entering the family business?

“She has a drive. She has an energy and she just connects to human emotion,” Will said of his daughter. “I think a big part was probably [seeing] Jaden after The Pursuit of Happiness. She saw what Jaden did, and she was like, ‘I want that,’” Will added. “Jaden is [like] Johnny Depp. He just wants to do good work . . . He loves acting, he just wants to make good movies,” Will said and joked, “and Willow is Paris Hilton. Willow wants to be on TV.”

Will has also addressed his kids’ fame and fortune.

“It may seem like we have pushed our kids into the business, but that is absolutely insane,” he said. “I would never, ever, push somebody to have their face on a poster that’s going be everywhere in the world. He is making a choice from the informed. It’s less scary to me than if he wanted to be a dentist in that I couldn’t help with what he’d chosen. I have relationships with some of the biggest filmmakers and actors and producers on Earth. So I can be a huge help.”

Candace Cameron Bure

When Full House star Candace Cameron Bure sat down with Celebrity Baby Scoop, the busy mother of three said that her daughter Natasha has caught the acting bug while her son Maks hopes to be a hockey star just like papa Valeri Bure.

“Our kids are making that choice for themselves, and it seems they are following in both our footsteps,” she said. “My daughter wants to act, and we’re allowing her to audition. My son Lev wants to be a tennis player, and Maks wants to be a hockey player. They’re all pretty determined and focused to pursue those goals.”

She added: “We’re supportive of whatever they choose to do, as long as they work hard and put all their effort into it and not quit when it gets rough.”

Bruce Willis

Bruce Willis has three daughters - Rumer, 25, Scout, 22, and Tallulah, 19 – with ex-wife Demi Moore. Bruce has talked about his eldest daughter Rumer who has acted in films such as Now and Then and Striptease and TV shows such as 90210 and Sorority Row.

Turns out Bruce not only supports Rumer’s acting career, he also thinks she’ll make her way through the limelight of Hollywood without a problem.

“Rumer’s not only got the [acting] bug, Rumer’s successful — and she’s got a great head on her shoulders,” Bruce said. “[She] wasn’t raised in Los Angeles, so she knows the difference between the illusion of Hollywood and what real life is.”

She added: “I like simple stuff like that. I really like just hanging out in the backyard. It’s so fun to make lunch, sit on a blanket, and play outside. Those are really great moments. I also love going to farmer’s markets in the summertime, because you can hang out with family and browse fruits and vegetables, and there are also kid’s rides.”

She added: “We also love playing cards and ping pong. We always have a ping pong table set up, as it’s a great way to get your heart racing for ten minutes.

10 Celebrity Parents Who Do (and Don’t) Want Their Kids In Showbiz

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

This post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

If you were in show business, would you want your children to follow in your footsteps? Or would you discourage your children from the limelight of Hollywood with every ounce of your being?

Celebrity Baby Scoop checks out which celeb parents have encouraged their children to enter the wild world of fame and fortune, those that forbid it with all their might, and the ones that sit on the fence.

1. John Travolta

John Travolta has kept us entertained since the 70s in the huge hits Saturday Night Fever and Grease. And not to mention his triumphant career comeback in the 90s cult classic, Pulp Fiction. Prior to the tragic death of his son Jett, John appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show and announced his daughter Ella’s debut in the big screen comedy, Old Dogs.

“Jett was young when he saw Look Who’s Talking, but he didn’t like it when I was kissing Kirstie Alley. But Ella took right to it right away. That’s why last year she said, ‘When am I going to do a movie with you?’ Little did she know, dad had a trick up his sleeve. She’s a natural performer,” John said. “She’s just like I was. I didn’t push it at all, because I knew that worked. My mother didn’t push me, either. We were just given our space to be whatever we wanted to be, and I decided that works better than any kind of pressure.” John added, “Unless they’re afraid they’re going to be rejected and they want to protect them. And I can imagine parents would fear that, but you can be rejected in any profession.”

2. Tom Cruise

Fellow Scientologist, Tom Cruise, agrees that show business is a great place for kids. Tom’s son Connor entered the family business (mom is Tom’s ex, Nicole Kidman) when he was 14 years old in Will Smith’s flick Seven Pounds. Perhaps one day Tom and Katie Holmes’ 6-year-old daughter Suri will follow in her big brother – and her divorced parents’ – footsteps.

When asked if he’d like Suri to enter showbiz, Tom said:

“I’d love it. Acting is work I love. I love to create life and give energy, create characters, and create stories.”

3. Will Smith

Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith are all-for their kids entering the family business. Both of their children – son Jaden, 14, and daughter Willow, 11 – have graced the big screen. Jaden costarred with his father in The Pursuit of Happyness, appeared alongside Keanu Reeves in The Day the Earth Stood Still, and in the remake of the Karate Kid. Willow made her acting debut alongside her papa in I Am Legend and later lit up the big screen in Kit Kittredge: An American Girl.

So what does Will think of his kids entering the family business?

“She has a drive. She has an energy and she just connects to human emotion,” Will said of daughter Willow. “I think a big part was probably [seeing] Jaden after The Pursuit of Happyness. She saw what Jaden did, and she was like, ‘I want that,’” Will added. “Jaden is [like] Johnny Depp. He just wants to do good work . . . He loves acting, he just wants to make good movies,” Will said and joked, “and Willow is Paris Hilton. Willow wants to be on TV.”

10 Celebrity Moms Pregnant Under 30

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Celebrity Moms Under 30This post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

Some say over 40 is too old for pregnancy, while others argue that under 30 is too young

Let’s take a look within Hollywood and see who has entered motherhood in their teens and 20s. From Britney Spears and her sis Jamie Lynn Spears, to moms-to-be Hilary Duff and Snooki, look through our list of 10 young Hollywood moms.

 Snooki:

In the worst-kept secret in reality TV history, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, 24, recently confirmed that she is pregnant and engaged to the father, beau of one and a half years Jionni LaValle.

And the Jersey Shore star and LaValle, also 24, know just what onlookers are thinking. “I have different priorities now,” the reformed party girl said. “I don’t care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I’m ready and he’s ready.”

 Hilary Duff:

Disney darling Hilary Duff, 24, is expecting her first child with hockey star hubby Mike Comrie, 31. “I feel like the first pregnant woman on Earth,” Hilary said. “Every time I feel something, I’m like, ‘What is this? What’s happening?’ And I’m Googling and finding out that everyone has had the same symptoms and I’m totally not original.” The Lizzie McGuire star went on to talk about her first pregnancy. “Today I got out of the shower and one side of my stomach [was] way bigger than the other side. It was the first time that I saw the baby actually moving in there!,” she said. “It was like I had a little alien inside!”

Britney Spears:

When pop princess Britney Spears was 22, she wed her second husband Kevin Federline. At the tender age of 23, Brit gave birth to her first child, Sean Preston. Just one year later, the Oops!… I Did It Again singer welcomed her second son, Jayden James.

Brit has opened up about how motherhood has changed her life. “As a mother, the one thing that always goes through your head is, ‘You’re never enough.’ You never can be enough—or do enough—for your kids,” she said. “It’s a never-ending issue for me. I had to learn: Don’t beat yourself up so much…. You have to take it one day at a time, do the best that you can and enjoy yourself. I notice that if there are some times I’ve been stressed, because I’m human and stress about things, that affects your kids. So you have to make sure you’re a happy mom so they can be happy.”

Jamie Lynn Spears:

Not to be outdone by big sister Britney, Jamie Lynn Spears welcomed her first child at the young age of 17. The teen mom and her then-boyfriend, Casey Aldridge, welcomed daughter Maddie Briann in June 2008.

Jamie Lynn recently talked about being embarrassed at the time to reach out for birth control. “I was 16. I’d had one boyfriend. It doesn’t make it perfect or all right,” she said. “Casey was my first love,” she said. “Since the day I saw him, I just wanted to marry him and be with him forever and ever. I believe in safety and birth control as prevention. But like many young girls…I was really scared to go to the doctor. And I was on a Nickelodeon show, and it [felt] especially embarrassing to ask someone to put me on birth control. I didn’t want to ask my doctor, because she had a little girl.”

The young mom went on to say she never wanted to “glamorize teen pregnancy.” “When I found out I was pregnant, [my parents and I] decided to do an interview with OK! magazine about it. I knew I needed to give an explanation to my fans, and I wanted it to be in my words first. I had to make a decision that I could sleep with every night. I did feel responsible for the young girls and the mothers who I probably confused and let down. I apologize for that. But I wasn’t trying to glamorize teen pregnancy. I hated when [the tabloids] said that. Everybody is dealt a hand of cards. It was my choice to play them the way I played them. But the hateful comments hurt. [Parent groups were outraged at the Nickelodeon star, and tabloids printed rumors that Spears had a miscarriage, that she was giving up her baby, and that Aldridge was cheating on her.] I was already upset about having to tell my parents and Casey’s parents. To have the world come down on a situation that was already affecting my family hugely was hard. But this was my situation, and I did the best I could.”

Miranda Kerr:

On January 6, 2011, Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr, then 27, welcomed their first child, son Flynn. In our 4th Annual Readers’ Choice Awards, baby Flynn topped the charts as our favorite new tot in Tinseltown! [Flynn is] “the best thing I’ve ever done!,” Miranda gushed. “Every day it just gets better,” she added.
