From the Beckhams to the Birkheads, there’s no denying good genes!
Take a look at 12 celebrity kids who have made their modeling debut.
Rap superstar 50 Cent‘s son Sire, 2, is a serious cutie — so much so, he’s entered the world of modeling.
“He’s got a [modeling] deal now with Kidz Safe,” the proud papa, 39, said during a recent interview with Power 105.1. “It’s an audio company. They paid him a big payment too: $700,000.”
The Grammy Award-winning rapper (born to the name Curtis James Jackson III), couldn’t help but gush about his beautiful baby boy.
“He’s super cute, you gotta pay for it,” 50 joked.
Guess who is the latest Saint Laurent hunk?
This dapper teen is none other than Dylan Brosnan, son of James Bond star Pierce Brosnan and wife Keely Shay Smith. The 17-year-old makes his modeling debut in YSL’s new ad campaign for the men’s permanent collection.
In the sharp black-and-white images, Dylan looks every bit the debonair male model with side-swept hair and a classic black tux and tie. In another shot, the teen gives a piercing gaze while wearing slim-fitting jeans and a dark cardigan.
A seasoned Saint Laurent model, Jack sports a denim button-down, gazing through his messy chin-length hair. In a more relaxed shot, the teen sits cross-legged in ripped jeans and a velvet blazer.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s little girl recently made her modeling debut.
The couple’s 1-year-old daughter North West looked cute as can be in the fall issue of CR Fashion Book. Shot by Michael Avedon, Nori is wearing Chanel, and even accessorizes with a petite purse with the iconic interlocking “C’s” logo. To complete her look, the famous tot is sporting Lorraine Schwartz diamond studs.
The cute image is captioned by Karl Lagerfeld, saying, “It is never too early to care about fashion.”
According the to magazine’s website, North West was featured in a story entitled Legends, which “celebrates the unconventional side of fashion icon status.”
While this is her first solo gig, the sweet tot posed with her famous parents for Vogue in March.
Proud papa P. Diddy posed with his daughters Jessie and D’Lila, then 6, and Chance, then 7, whom made their modeling debut at Kids Fashion Week in New York City in October 2013.
“Words can’t explain how proud I am of my young ladies ! There’s no greater feeling #fact,” Diddy captioned a shot via Instagram.
Puffy’s gorgeous girls, all now 8-years-old, made their runway debuts on the Swarovski and Ooh! La, La! catwalks. The trio proved they’re naturals in trendy sneaker wedges, high-low hems and a healthy dose of model attitude while their R&B superstar papa watched from the front row.
Actress Kate Hudson got glam with her sons Ryder, then 10, and Bing, then 2.
The Wish I Were Here actress kept her kids in the family business by incorporating them into her ad campaign for Ann Taylor’s Spring 2014 collection.
With art imitating life, the photos feature Kate and her sons on a Hollywood movie set.
In one image, Kate’s blonde locks blow in the wind as she totes her tot — her now 3-year-old son with ex-fiancé, Muse frontman Matt Bellamy.
Another photo shows her relaxing in a director’s chair. Ryder, now 11, her son from her first marriage to Chris Robinson, is sitting nearby, smiling and holding a film clapperboard.
At the age of 10, Kaia Gerber, the stunning daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford and husband Rande Gerber, made her modeling debut for Young Versace. But according to her model mom, the now-13-year-old won’t be making a career of it any time soon.
“At this point, she’s too young to pursue a career,” Cindy said. “There aren’t even a handful of jobs for a 10-year-old girl. But if she’s 17 and wants to try it…of course, what can I say? She’s really into singing and acting. She kind of jokingly said—I’m not even sure if it was jokingly—‘I might model first because you don’t have to know how to do anything, but then I want to be a baby nurse.’”
At the tender age of 2, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony‘s twins (now 7) made their modeling debut as the faces of Gucci’s children’s line in October 2010.
Alongside their famous mama, the twins looked too cute for words in their designer duds. “It’s the first time I have worked with my kids in that way,” J.Lo said, adding that the twins “had fun” posing.
In honor of the collection, Gucci donated $1 million to UNICEF’s Schools for Africa initiative and $50,000 to Jennifer’s charity, the Maribel Initiative.
“It’s exactly why I’m excited to be a part of this,” said the mom-of-two. “Now there are two Gucci spokesbabies for a beautiful cause!”
Bon Jovi rocker Richie Sambora and actress Heather Locklear are proud parents to 17-year-old daughter Ava. In March 2010, when Ava was just 12, she made her modeling debut at LA Fashion Week.
The blonde beauty premiered her famous father’s women’s fashion line White Trash Beautiful. Looking beyond her years, Ava was cheered on by her beaming parents as she strutted her way down the catwalk.
“My daughter’s beautiful, she’s gregarious, she’s funny, she’s smart,” Richie gushed. “I’m beyond proud. The only modeling she has really done has been at my shows. That is where we are right now – her priorities are schoolwork and also I believe in maintaining the innocence of children. Before that when she is 18 or 19 she is going to do what she wants to do and I’m going to support her and help her through it.”
At just 6-years-old, Dannielynn Birkhead has made her modeling debut for GUESS kids. The shots are seen on billboards as part of the company’s Spring campaign.
Posing on the beach in a denim mini-skirt and fedora, Dannielynn seems to have inherited her mom Anna Nicole Smith‘s love of the camera. The gorgeous girl’s father, Larry Birkhead, said the shoot was a tribute to her late mother.
And who could forget Anna Nicole, who burst onto the modeling scene herself in sexy Guess ads in the early ’90s.
“Dannielynn has always looked up to her mom’s image and . . . I think that this is kind of Dannielynn’s way of paying tribute to her mom in her own special way,” Larry said.
Larry has raised Dannielynn, now 8, since the Playboy model’s drug overdose death in 2007; their daughter was just 5-months-old at the time.
“To see her mom’s picture next to hers as a Guess girl and say, ‘Hey, I was a Guess Kids girl, my mommy was a Guess girl,’ that might be her only connection with her mom,” he shared.
Still, the single dad said it’s all in good fun.
“My goal for her is for her to be a child and just do what all kids do,” he added.
At the tender age of 10, David and Victoria Beckham‘s son Romeo landed his first modeling gig with Burberry. Following in his stylish mom and dad’s footsteps, the beautiful boy is featured in the Spring/Summer 2013 campaign.
Looking dapper in a Burberry trench coat, Romeo, now 12, is all smiles playfully toting an umbrella in the photo shoot.
In a 2010 interview, Victoria talked about Romeo’s flair for fashion.
“I mean, you’ve got Brooklyn, who is a real boy. He’s turning into a teenager. It takes him quite some time to do his hair in the morning before he goes to school,” she said. “Then we got Romeo, who loves fashion. He likes to go out in a suit with a bowler hat . . . and he’s a real fashion lover. And then Cruz just wants to break dance every opportunity he gets.”
On the cover, the then 15-year-old looked dapper in a crisp white oxford shirt and striped maroon tie, paired with a black bomber jacket. The teen gave the camera a smoldering stare, while bearing a striking resemblance to both of his parents.
In one image, Victoria and David’s oldest wears a bumblebee-striped tank that reveals his athletic arms. Similar to the cover shot, the teen gives the camera a model pose.
“We could not have wished for a stronger subject than Brooklyn to bring this story to life,” Man About Town Editor-in-Chief Ben Reardon tells Us. “He was a diligent, relaxed cover star for his first ever fashion shoot.”
Brooklyn’s modeling debut was a “20-page fashion story celebrating teenage style.” The photos were taken by Alasdair McLellan, who’s worked with the teen’s famous parents on their respective fashion projects in the past.
At 4-years-old, Anja Mazur makes her modeling debut alongside her gorgeous mother, Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio, in a campaign for London Fog.
Alessandra said that Anja, now 6, had a blast making the campaign: “Having my daughter steal the spotlight is pretty funny and I just love it! I’m so proud of her. She had a great time on set and is going to be wearing all of the London Fog kids jackets.”
The model mom, who is also mom to 2-year-old Noah with husband Jamie Mazur, added that her daughter already a “fashionista.”
“In the morning she likes to pick out her own clothes,” Alessandra shared. “She’ll definitely be a little fashionista. She has a very strong personality already.”
