Some of their projects even managed to clinch as a movie. She was married to Ryan Philippe until 2008 and has a daughter with him named Ava. Meanwhile, Ava is enjoying her rising star career while pursuing a college degree at UC Berkeley. In an interview, Ava said that her mother taught her ambition, love, and hard work in everything that she does. However, a lot of people would add that her looks and charm came directly from her mom.
Lorenzo Lamas & Shayne Lamas
Falcon Crest actor Lorenzo Lamas is an award-winning talent. To prove that point, his role in the classic soap opera gave him a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Soon after that, he showed his tremendous acting upside in his succeeding movies and television series. Lorenzo had a pretty strong career in the acting scenes, but the same can’t be said about his married life. He tied the knot five times already, but the good thing is, he gained six talented children, with most of them following his footsteps in the entertainment industry. One of his kids is Shayne Lamas.
Shayne gives credit to her father for her passion and talent in acting. She carved her popularity as a celebrity when she clinched the winning spot for the twelfth season of The Bachelor. Shayne is now married to blogger Nik Richie and is a doting mother of two.
Vanessa Redgrave & Joely Richardson
Joely Richardson is blessed to have Vanessa Redgrave as her mother. Aside from getting the same classy look her mother got as an asset during the peak of her career, Joely also inherited Vanessa’s talent in acting. Joely is recognized for her roles in the FX drama series Nip/Tuck, The Tudors, and Event Horizon.
During the span of her career, Vanessa received the Triple Crown of Acting– an elite group of artists that managed to get a hold of the entertainment scene’s top awards, the Academy, the Emmy, and the Tony. She was also inducted to the American Theatre Hall of Fame and received the BAFTA Fellowship, with the credit going to her acting talent. Tennessee Williams called Vanessa the “Greatest Actress of our Time.” That’s a nod towards her fantastic performances as an English actress and activist. At present, her daughter Joely is also doing well in the industry.
Marie Osmond & Jessica Osmond
Country music artist Marie Osmond is part of the show business family The Osmonds. Marie made her own mark in the entertainment industry with her music, popularizing the hit singles Paper Roses, Meet Me in Montana, and Then There’s You. She also exhibited a huge deal of talent in hosting a couple of talk shows and authored a few New York Times bestsellers.
A lot of people would also agree that Marie Osmond is an understanding parent when it comes to her children’s endeavors. Being the mother that she is, Marie wholeheartedly accepted her daughter’s preference and even went over her way to support her with her current relationship. Now that’s huge support towards her daughter Jessica’s life choices. Even if the two of them are not connected by blood, that goes to show that love is thicker than anything else, and we have to give Marie all the credit that she deserves.
Stellan Skarsgård & Alexander Skarsgård
Stellan Skarsgård is a Scottish actor who appeared in Breaking the Waves, The Hunt for Red October, and a couple of films in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise. It seems like the acting skills run through his family’s veins, and his three sons all took the same footsteps that he made. Stellan must have received praises for his sons’ (Alexander, Bill, and Gustaf) acting talents.
Meanwhile, Alexander reached the highest level of fame and made a name of his own. A huge part of that has something to do with his roles in Tarzan, the movie, and the television series True Blood. He was also dubbed as one of Hollywood’s most mesmerizing villains, thanks to his sharp good looks and pure talent. He even bagged an honorary degree and a couple of awards while playing Perry Wright in Big Little Lies’. Now that’s a real nod to the sheer talent that runs in the family blood.
Charles Bronson & Katrina Holden Bronson
Charles Bronson was a critically-acclaimed actor of his time who was mostly cast in action films of the ‘60s and the ‘70s. He was known for his role as a gunfighter, vigilante, or police officer in movies and television series that catapulted him to the podium of Hollywood royalties. Bronson and the English actress Jill Ireland collaborated in 15 films together, and the two eventually developed a love story of their own. Soon after, they decided to make a family of their own and were blessed with three children.
One of them is Katrina Holden Bronson. Just like her adoptive parents, she also tried her luck in acting, but she did not reach the degree of fame they enjoyed while under the limelight. Still, she managed to get a very decent career as a screenwriter and director over the years. She has all the potential and the skills needed to follow in her parents’ footsteps, but it seems like the mainstream Hollywood scene is just not right for her.
Lee Van Cleef & Alan Van Cleef
Lee Van Cleef was known for his notorious and villain roles during his prime in Hollywood. He always portrayed the bad guy in movies such as The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, For a Few Dollars More, and Death Rides a Horse. However, opposite his image in famous Hollywood flicks, Van Cleef was a good father to his kids. He had three marriages overall, and the first of the three gave him three lovely kids, Alan, Deborah, and David.
Speaking of his son Alan, a lot of people would agree that he is a mirror of his father. The younger Van Cleef leaves the credit to his father for all the good things he has learned since he was a child. In fact, in an interview, Alan revealed that Lee Van Cleef is not the disciplinarian in the house but their mom, proving that the actor still has a soft spot.
Blythe Danner & Gwyneth Paltrow
We all know how great of an actress Blythe Danner was during her heydays, and she has all the awards and recognition for going along with it so that we could prove our point. However, what she considers as the best reward is to be a doting mother to two children, Gwyneth and Jake.
Speaking of Gwyneth Paltrow, she has inherited her mother’s good looks and undeniable talent, which became her trademark as one of the best actresses of our generation. Gwyneth is also known as one of the most influential persons in Hollywood. The interesting part is that she did not just focus on acting. Instead, she branched out to business and secured some investment money, and a prime example of that would be for Goop, a wellness and lifestyle brand that she started back in 2008. It is safe to say that she learned all that with the wisdom she got from her mother.
Judy Garland & Vanessa Hooker
For four decades, Judy Garland proved that she was simply one of the best in the industry in terms of acting, singing, and vaudeville. She even bagged numerous awards in the entire span of her career, and that goes to show what she was made of. The famous actress also had a couple of marriages throughout the years, and one of them would be her relationship with Sidney Luft.
During the ‘50s, the two went on a wild run in their relationship and were blessed with three lovely children, and one of them is Lorna Luft, who also became an actress. The family had a very smooth time together. However, the couple ended up in a lawyer’s office, which eventually led to a separation. Surprisingly enough, Judy had a granddaughter with Lorna named Vanessa Hooker Richards, who definitely got her grandma’s look as she looked almost like her when they were of the same age.
Julie Andrews & Kayti Edwards
Julie Andrews truly has a heart of gold. Many would also agree that she was born to become a star in the Hollywood scene. She’s an award-winning actress who appeared in West End, The Boy Friend, and The Sound of Music of the ’60s. On top of her acting prowess, she clearly is a mother (and a grandmother) at heart. She opened her arms and welcomed her late husband Blake Edwards’ children from a previous marriage and treated them like her own. The same can be said about her grandkids, most notably her relationship with the travel blogger and social media star Kayti Edwards.
Despite not inheriting the degree of massive popularity similar to her grandparents’, Kayti still managed to dodge a couple of controversies and rumors thrown at her. Now that’s a hallmark of true celebrity blood running in her. We’re not sure, though, if she has plans to pursue the movie industry.
Princess Diana & Princess Charlotte At Age 2
Many people love to see what the Royal Family is up to, which makes sense since all family members are considered living icons. However, for us, there wouldn’t be a more famous royalty out there than the late Princess Diana. She has captivated our hearts with her lovely personality and charm. Princess Diana was also known for her love of dancing and was seen engaging in royal events showing off her grooves. One of the most memorable instances was her dance with film icon John Travolta.
Despite not being able to see her grandchildren from her first-born Prince William, Princess Diana must have been proud of Princess Charlotte’s interest in dancing. At such a young age, Prince Charlotte showed the same talent as her grandmom’s. Prince William even revealed that the fourth heir to the throne is already taking weekly private dance lessons. Specifically, Princess Charlotte has a knack for ballet.
Debbie Reynolds & Carrie Fisher
Debbie Reynolds and Carrier Fisher truly shared a never-ending mother-daughter tandem. They were one of the pairs in Hollywood whom fans will never get tired of watching on the TV; thanks to their acting performances in their respective movies, the two have amassed fans worldwide. Debbie Reynolds was hailed as one of the best actresses of her time. On the other hand, Carrie Fisher was also a favorite cast in Star Wars because of her effective portrayal of Princess Leia.
Unfortunately, their family was struck with a disastrous blow when Fisher died in 2016 due to cardiac arrest. A couple of hours later, her mother Debbie, also left the family, proving how a mother’s love can be eternal. In 2017, the team behind the famous Star Wars franchise dedicated that year’s project, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, to Carrie Fisher. Their family released a statement saying that Debbie didn’t pass away because of a broken heart. Instead, Debbie just went to be with her daughter.
