Celebrity kids who become famous themselves are nothing new! In the same way people tend to keep tabs on their celebrity parents, their children spark interest from the day they were born to the moment they start making a name of their own. Just like several of the next-gen celebrity sons we can't get enough of! While not all of them decide to follow in their folks’ footsteps in showbiz, these promising boys are unafraid to carve their own paths and prove that they're more than their famous last name. Get to know them below.
