Sometimes in life, it isn't about the super cool celebrities that we all know and love (and follow and stalk on every social media platform) because sometimes it's actually their offspring who are even cooler. Think about it, though. Oftentimes they are children of talented musicians and actors who take them on trips around the world, so why wouldn't they be their own unique little person? These kids have grown up with cameras following their every move and legions of adoring fans, which means they aren't like any child you know.
Here are 15 times our favorite celebs' kids totally stole the show!
15 Blue Ivy demands you be cool, mom and dad
Seriously, what we would give to live the life of Blue Ivy Carter for even a single day. She is the daughter of two of the biggest names to ever exist in the music industry, Beyoncé and Jay Z, and this little girl appears to have them both wrapped around her perfect tiny finger.
Seated between her parents last month at the Gramm's, the moment when Blue Ivy just wasn't having the applause that interrupted Camila Cabello's speech up on stage, went viral because it was just so relatable. Sometimes our parents get a bit ahead of themselves and want to speed through important moments, but our girl Blue Ivy just wasn't feeling that and she let them know in the most delicate way possible. To say we fell even more in love with her at this moment would be a complete understatement.
14 Even with Queen Bey beside her, North West was not impressed
Oh, North West. May you keep taking all that privilege and money that's been bequeathed upon you and simply stick it right up the butts of people who have been shoving those silver spoons in your mouth for years to come!
Again, you can't help but feel for little North West here because she's no more than 2 years old and even though she's seated at a fashion show with her mom Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé on one side of her and big time fashion editor Anna Wintour on the other, she really could not be more unimpressed. And do you know why that is? It's because she's a small child and things like runway shows and fancy dresses on too thin models simply don't interest her and major props to her for making that known.
13 Traveling on your own private plan is such a drag!
The true privilege some of these little babes of celebs experience is something that almost makes you want to fling yourself off a building because the most luxurious experience we've had on a plane is putting on a face mask while taking a sip of a $10 glass of wine from the drink cart.
We love this photo of model Chrissy Teigen and daughter Luna because it's just too cute for so many reasons. One being just how little Luna looks in that giant chair—that no doubt is on John Legend's and Teigen's private plane. Also, that sweet sideways glance of pure pride that Teigen is throwing Luna's way is the exact way all parents look at their children when they can't help but be amazed for a moment simply by their existence.
12 Reese Witherspoon and her lookalike daughter Ava
We all remember this moment in our pop culture zeitgeist. It had been a few years since we had really seen Reese Witherspoon's teen daughter Ava in a decent photo that wasn't brought to the world by the paparazzi and when this one surfaced, people pretty much lost their minds. They could not get over just how much of a mini-me Ava is to her mom and how they're basically identical (minus years in age difference). But whatever it is Reese Witherspoon has going on in her incredible gene pool is certainly something to marvel at because between their identical eyes, hair, nose and smiles, these two look way more like twin sisters than mother and daughter, and the world could not have been more in awe.
11 We're not crying, you're crying
This photo of Anna Faris and Chris Pratt's son Jack makes us feel all sorts things, most of all it makes us want to sink into the couch and weep while stuffing chocolate in our mouth because we wish the world could be this sweet and innocent at all times. As you can probably tell, there is nothing but pure love between father and son in this photo and to see sweet Jack in those adorable glasses looking into his dad's eyes as they're at some fancy event in suits, it's just too much for the eyes to take in at once. Anna Faris opened up to Redbook about delivering Jack prematurely and some of his health struggles that came along with that, so to see him as a strong and cute little boy with his whole life ahead of him really does make any maternal or paternal bone in your body ache.
10 Jennifer Lopez's kids are beyond cool and chic
We've all been there with our parents. They want to stop and savor the moment and get a selfie with their little munchkins and you think it's because they think you're so cute and sweet and want to capture that for all to see, but really, they just want the world to see what cool creatures they've had a (large) hand in creating.
This selfie that Jennifer Lopez took with her two kids, Emme and Max, is pretty much everything you want your children to be. They're both effortlessly cool, poised and dressed to the nines. Just check out that gorgeous furry coat and gold tipped boats that Emme's sporting! They both totally have that "Jenny from the block" vibe going for them and we're pretty jealous.
9 Who's the real star of the family here?
We have to say that it's really something when you're one of the biggest movie stars in the world receiving your star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and your little girl, wearing the cutest bomber jacket to ever exist, completely steals the show. Really, it's no wonder that Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively's daughter James looks as though she's straight out of whatever show is super popular on Disney Channel right now with those golden curls and big eyes and a need to grab the microphone and put on a show. After all, she comes from a family with some serious star power and good looks — she was practically bred for the spotlight. If the girl can sing or act, there's really no stopping her.
8 A bashful Prince George is our aesthetic
We'd all be straight up lying if we said that we haven't fantasized at least once in our lives what it would be like to grow up being sweet little Prince George. Let's all take a moment to think about what his life must really be like. First off, everyone around you speaks in a great British accent, so that in itself would be pretty damn sweet. Second, you're not even 5 years old yet and you're a Prince, so you just get to walk around everyday knowing that even though your parents are important and official, so are you. Lastly, you're still very much a little kid, so you get to be photographed running about wearing adorable little check shirts and playing shy whenever you feel like it because again, you're a flippin' prince!
7 Pink's daughter Willow is our fashion inspo
We all remember Pink's inspiring speech to her daughter at the VMAs this past year. She took to the stage to accept the Video Vanguard award and talked about loving yourself for who you are and fighting through any negative feelings, and we were all fairly in awe of her in that moment because isn't that how we want all mothers to teach self-love to their daughters?
Sitting in the audience hearing all of these things that her mom has already said to her was Pink's adorable daughter Willow and that little girl was wearing the hell out of a suit—complete with a handkerchief in the pocket and a tie. With her braided pigtails and the proud (yet shy) look on her face as she watched her mama speak up on stage, we couldn't help but fall utterly in love with sweet little Willow Hart that day.
6 Sorry, Mariah—you're out. Your twins are in
Mariah Carey has been pretty much over in our eyes for a number of years now. What with not having any hit music in well over a decade now and still managing to pop up in our peripheral with some kind of weird diva behavior every now and then, we think it's safe to say that it's no longer Mariah's world we're all living in.
So, who exactly has come in to take her place? Well, it's none other than her twins Moroccan and Monroe, of course! This photo of these two little ones with their (formerly relevant) mom is everything. Monroe looks like she is already being trained to tell people to bow down to her, while Moroccan pretty much has the most perfect smile to ever exist. Quite frankly, we want to live in their world because they are doing everything right.
5 Hilary Duff and son Luca are the cutest duo ever
If there's anyone we're always blatantly rooting for, it would have to be Hilary Duff. Seriously, who else came up in the weird world of the Disney channel and still managed to not have a drug problem (that we found out about, anyway), and still happens to be very relevant almost 15 years down the line. She's really the only one to come to mind.
One other big reason we also can't help but love her? Her adorable 5-year-old son Luca, who makes appearances on her Instagram on a weekly basis. Not only do these two totally look alike but the way they are together in photos really just makes your heart melt. With that blonde hair and killer blue eyes, Luca is bound to grow up and turn some heads because he already has the ladies (and probably some men, too) wrapped around his little finger.
4 Who can't relate to Mason Kardashian?
Even if you're not a huge fan of the Kardashian clan, you have to admit that the kids are always there to break up those annoying moments and crack us up. Case in point—when sweet little Mason Disick discreetly tried to ask his mom when they were leaving a family function. It was just too funny to watch because we all had moments like that growing up (heck, when we were adults, too) when we were out somewhere with our parents and we just had this overwhelming urge to leave and go home. We'd like to take the time to thank Mason for having this moment on television and giving someone the opportunity to make it into a meme because it is one we all know, love and cherish for many moons now.
3 Harper Beckham was living our dream life even as a baby
If there's any life out there we would have loved to experience as a wee little baby, it would have to be Harper Beckham. First off, just her name is a true thing of beauty, as it's so regal and elegant. Secondly, her parents are David and Victoria Beckham. So, other than the Royal family, you pretty much don't get anymore British and important than that. Third, she has a whole gaggle of older brothers who will look out for her for years to come, which we just love the idea of. And lastly, since she's so little and cute—and yes, she is older now than she was in this photo—she can totally get away with giving some cheeky attitude to the camera and coming off as cute as a button!
2 It's annoying how beautiful this family is
We all love and adore Cindy Crawford because even though she is heart-achingly beautiful, she's also been someone who has always been very kind and gracious in the press as well. It must really be something for her to see her daughter Kaia nominated for Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards this past year and to see both her kids score a major modeling campaign with big time designer Calvin Klein—those are some major wins in the modeling industry. To see things come full circle and have both Kaia and Presley really come onto the scene this past year and take the modeling world by storm, it really does seem as though this gorgeous family was made to be admired.
1 Suri Cruise does not feel the paparazzi
If you're Suri Cruise and you've spent a large portion of your childhood being followed by the paparazzi due to the fact that your parents are both uber famous (and let's face it, your dad is pretty weird), then it's really no wonder that at the end of the day, you don't care for strange old men shoving flashing cameras in your face.
Just think about living with that from basically the beginning of your existence and, even though you have a totally cool mom like Katie Holmes—and can we just say that we thank our lucky stars each day that her mom is Joey Potter—it's something that's very hard to deal with. We do have to say though that this little girl has always managed to snub the paps with true style—check out that cute cute and dress.
