Most kids grow up idolizing their parents, but for some particularly lucky offspring, they are far from alone in that fandom. There are a number of benefits that come with being able to call a celebrity “dad,” and in most cases, that includes hitting the genetic jackpot. Many of these famous fathers have been renowned for their good looks, and while maybe people strive for them, these kids were fortunate enough to inherit them.
Despite having achieved highly coveted levels of fame, these dads’ proudest accomplishments are their little ones. Many have taken to social media to share their lineage with their fans while other descendants have managed to find their own way into the spotlight.
