15 Children Of Celebrities That Struck Gold In Their Careers

Celebrities have children - duh! Many of them are so well hidden that there was no photo evidence of them anywhere on the Internet.
Until one day they just show up next to their famous parents, and the world just goes into meltdown.
Children of celebrities have a lot of good things going for them, including connections in the industry, inherent wealth, and… well, the status of being the children of someone famous.
But these are not necessarily good. If they intend to work in the same industry as their parents, chance that accusations of nepotism will show up. People love celebrities' children, but they also love to dismiss their hard work as the products of their parents’ fame and fortune. This means these celebrities' children have to work ten times as hard to prove themselves.
So, here are 15 children of celebrities that struck gold in their careers.
