Ah, to be born with a silver spoon in one's mouth, right? Not so lucky? Me neither! However, the kids on this list were born with more like a platinum spoon in theirs. These fortunate fruit of celeb loins came into the world with no financial worries whatsoever unless it's the ever-tough decision of what to do with it all.
Mo' money, mo' problems...I'm not sure, but I wouldn't mind finding out. If you won the Powerball next week, would you handle things differently than these parents with super fat bank accounts? Would you (gasp!) make your kids get a real, legit job to understand the meaning of money and what it takes most people to have it?
Or would you be more like Beyonce and Jay-Z, who didn't just get Blue Ivy a pony for her 2nd birthday, but an actual pure Arabian horse, worth $75k. Or maybe you'd be more like Suri Cruise's parents, Tom and Katie, who didn't just take her to Disney World but got her a stay inside the exclusive digs inside Cinderella's Castle.
Or maybe you'll be more disciplined in spoiling your kids, along the lines of celeb chef, Gordon Ramsay, who wants his kids to have a work ethic and character. He said he'd do a 25 percent deposit on an apartment for his kids, but won't flat out buy one or pay the whole thing. Mega watt money man, Bill Gates, is giving away the vast majority of his dough as well, wanting his kids to find their way in the world without the burden of a massive inheritance.
15 Blue Ivy: Already In The Billionaire Baby Club
These kids will never know what it is to go without...anything! Their new digs cost Mom and Pop a staggering $88 million. Experts have estimated their monthly mortgage on the property to be around a quarter of a million--the same price as an average American home! The kids will enjoy 4 outdoor pools, over 30,000 square feet of luxurious living space and a spa and fitness center. Not bad!
She routinely wears Gucci outfits in the price tag range of thousands. And most of us worry about our kids getting grape juice on their school clothes from Kohl's or Old Navy. The kids will jet around the world, following along with their touring parents, and the twins will become familiar with a quick jot off in a helicopter, as big sis Blue Ivy now is. Mom and Dad together are said to be worth more than $1 billion. That billion is with a capital B!
14 Suri Cruise: Sailing On Good (And Huge) Fortune
Suri Cruise is the lucky daughter of megawatt star Tom Cruise and actress Katie Holmes. The 11-year-old girl reportedly, according to some magazine articles including one in InTouch magazine, hasn't seen her father in 4 years, so the lucky title has some caveats. Tom and Katie divorced, as you may remember, back in 2012, and Scientology figured widely in the speculation of causes for the marriage's demise. However, from all reports Katie is a very devoted mom, and makes Suri's happiness and stability her first priority.
Her romance with Jamie Foxx is also a reason for her happiness. Fashion is way at the top of the list as well. Suri and mama Katie sport trendy, pricey outfits quite regularly. Estimates of Suri's clothing worth ranges from $1 million up to $3 million, and one magazine reports that the monthly clothing budget is around 15k.
13 North And Saint West: The Spoiled Pair
You know any child born of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian will not have a regular life. And these two certainly live up to that expectation. Daughter North has enjoyed front row seats at Paris Fashion Week, a private bday party at Disneyland and owns a (mini) Lamborghini. Saint had a diaper bag estimated to be worth, please sit down as you read this, $23,000. Yes, US dollars! Of course it goes without saying that the tots have the best wardrobes, especially now that Mom and Dad are designing a kids' clothing line.
The kids have a playhouse valued at over $128,000. They just enjoyed a luxurious trip to the Bahamas this summer, and have jetted all over the world with their pampering parents. The dynamic duo belong to a "power couple" worth over $335 million.
12 Jaden And Willow Smith: Never Heard The Word 'NO'
Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith are admired and reviled depending on whom you ask for their parenting methods. They don't believe in saying 'no' much, if at all. Punishment and limit setting are not their style. Will's net worth is set at $250 million, while Jada's is at a much slimmer $20 million. Jaden's said to be worth $8 million already, with lil sister, Willow having half as much at this point.
Jaden is the face of Louis Vuitton, so designer labels are kind of a must. Recently, it was reported that Willow is driving a a $120k Porsche Cayenne Turbo. I sometimes generously give my kids bus fare, by contrast. Brother Jaden's first ride was a Tesla Model X. As if that weren't enough, the youngster got the car before it was on the market.
11 Pitt-Jolie Kids: Can You Even Count The Dollars?
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have 6 kids, and while they've been through a rough year or so with their parent's marriage disintegrating, they've had advantages few kids could ever dream of. Maddox, adopted from Cambodia, is 16; Pax, from Vietnam, is 13; Zahara is from Ethiopia and is 12; Shiloh, age 11 is the couple's first birthchild; and Knox and Vivienne are the 9-year-old twins. Dad Brad has a net worth of $240 million, while Mama Angelina is worth $160 million. While the couple was married two years before their split and together a total of 12, their divorce has reportedly been put on the back burner at least for now.
While they've not topped magazine covers with crazy indulgences with the kids a la Kimye, they do have stellar cribs. A countryside villa worthy of a royal family in France; a mansion in New Orleans; a 5300 square foot home in Los Angeles; an apartment in the Waldorf; and a sleek Malibu beach home.
10 Stefani-Rossdale Kids: Living Off Mom's Fortune
Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale have three sons together; Kingston is 11; Zuma just turned 9; and the baby Apollo is 3. The couple were together more than a dozen years, and now Gwen has famously teamed up both professionally and romantically with her costar on The Voice. Stefani is more than a singer, songwriter and TV host; she also designs clothing and naturally, one indulgence for her kids has always been cutting edge wardrobes for the trio.
However, not everything is high fashion and hobnobbing. Gwen's beau, Blake Shelton, recently took the boys on a rugged fishing trip. However, they should never want for any material thing. Mom's net worth is at least $100 million; ex Gavin has $35 million or so. Possible future stepdad Blake is worth $60 million, and has no kids of his own.
9 J-Lo's Twins: Enough To Go Around
Jennifer Lopez and ex-husband Marc Anthony divorced in 2011 after 7 years of marriage. They share twins, Emme and Max, age 9. Both J-Lo and Marc have impressive careers and fortunes. Jennifer is said to have a net worth of $360 million. Marc is worth $40 million himself. Should her romance with Alex Rodriguez cement into something permanent, it shouldn't hurt her financial life. A-Rod is worth $480 million!
The kids seem to be raised by a loving but by Hollywood standards, strict mom. However, that doesn't mean a bungalow in the burbs. She just purchased a $40 million estate on 8 acres in Bel-Air. The home boasts 7 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms among its nearly 14,000 square feet of luxurious living space. There are multiple pools, including one with a sandy beach, plus a 30-seat movie theater and a massage room.
8 Beckham Bunch Working Hard
Soccer superstar David Beckham and his chic former popstar wife Victoria have four beautiful children together, who are forever stylish and perfectly coiffed. The kids are: Brooklyn, age 18; Romeo, age 14; Cruz is 12 and daughter (only one!) Harper is 6. David Beckham currently has a net worth of $450 million while wife Victoria is also said to be worth $450 million. The Sun reported last year that the handsome family's wealth has now surpassed that of the Queen of England!
Cruz, the youngest of the boys is trying his hand at pop music, while the other two boys have worked as models. Superstar soccer player dad David is a spokesperson for varied brands including H&M, and Adidas, and Victoria is concerned with the family brand and her clothing line. Little Harper has yet to get a job!
7 Elton John's Boys: No Huge Inheritance!
Elton John is the legendary pianist, singer, songwriter who has amassed a massive $450 million estate, and his husband, David Furnish, is no slacker at a worth estimated at $50 million. Furnish is a filmmaker, ad exec, and movie director/producer. The couple share two sons, Elijah who is 4 and Zachary who is 6. The well-heeled family just trotted off to St. Tropez, France in August for one of their regular holidays.
However flashy the pop icon may have been throughout his life, once the kids arrived he insists it changed his perspective on priorities and money. He also states that he will not leave the bulk of his estate to the boys, but will ensure their basic needs will be taken care of. He thinks it's a wiser choice to let them learn the value of money and hard work, because that is what builds character and self-esteem. He says Warren Buffet, the American billionaire is a role model on how to prepare kids for life despite growing up with wealthy parents.
6 P-Diddy's Kiddies: Living In A Playboy Mansion
Sean Combs, aka Puff Daddy aka P Diddy, is proud papa to 6 kids: sons Quincy Brown, age 26; Justin, 23; Christian, 19; and 10-year-old daughters, twins D'Lila Star and Jessie James, and Chance. We can see many pics of them all hanging at Puff's $40 million, 17,000 square foot estate, neighboring Hef's Playboy Mansion on the West Coast. The place boasts 8 bedrooms, 11 baths and a 35-seat theater.
It also has standards such as a gym and a wine cellar, but the big draw is a lagoon pool leading to an underwater tunnel that connects to a grotto. But, hey! Who doesn't, right? Of course, those aren't his only homes, since Forbes just listed him as the richest rapper of 2017. His net worth jumped from last year's $750 million to this year's $820 million. But P Diddy says the money isn't his focus. "I don't care about the Forbes' list. I care about being a great dad."
5 Russell Simmons' Girls: Growing Up Glam
Not so hip on hip hop? Well, everybody should have an inkling still of who 59-year-old Russell Simmons is. The co-founder of Def Jam Records is the true definition of a self-made man. He went from a street hustle to a CEO with a net worth of $325 million. He branched out to Def Comedy Jam and Def Poetry, which became a Tony winning Broadway hit. He has clothing companies, beginning with Phat Farm, and developed a financial services company which he sold early this year to Walmart's Green Dot Bank for $147 million.
He and ex-wife Kimora Lee have two daughters together, Ming Lee, who is 17, and Aoki Lee, who is 15. It's reported that in his divorce settlement with Kimora, he has to pay his ex $20k per month per girl, until she reaches age 19. He also has to provide a $60,000 car for each girl each year.
4 Mariah And Nick's Twins: Spare No Expense
Mariah Carey is the bestselling female artist in Billboard history, so it comes as no surprise that her net worth is $520 million. Her ex, Nick Cannon, actor and TV personality, some say rapper (some say not) is worth $50 million. That makes their adorable twins quite the lucky pair at least paper-wise. The twins turned 6 this spring, and Monroe, (girl) and Moroccan (boy) got the birthday party that they wanted.
It wasn't as over the top as you might expect. They had friends over to bowl, play in the pool and had big teddy bears. Daddy Nick showed up and that made the day, reportedly. They have had their share of extravagance, however. Their cribs for instance, cost about $3600. They also recently went on safari with mom in South Africa.
3 Madonna's Kids: Mama Has Enough To Spare
Madonna is no shrinking violet, and nor is she bashful about being a proud mama to her brood. As you may remember, the 59-year old pop diva has a 21-year-old daughter, Lourdes, and a son, Rocco, 17, with ex Guy Ritchie. Then she added to her family via adoption from Malawi, David Banda, 11, Mercy James, 11, and twin daughters, Esther and Stella, 4. Madonna can easily afford all those mouths to feed and college tuitions, as well. She is estimated to be worth $800 million, and named the world's richest recording artist.
She has an apartment in NYC that was featured in Architectural Digest, but she's spent a lot more time at her Georgian estate in London, with its ample 10 bedrooms. She owns plenty more property, in the UK and the States. She may give the kids her wealth, but she is also spreading beyond, including building a hospital named after daughter Mercy James in Malawi.
2 Salma Hayek's Daughter: More Than Movie Money
Sweet little Valentina Paloma Pinault is now 9 and beginning to reflect her mother's wide-eyed beauty. Valentina is daughter to film beauty Salma Hayek and French businessman Francois-Henri Pinault. Pinault is a very, very successful man, worth $17.3 billion, yes, with a B! His multinational company owns a number of companies, including Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent. Mom is worth a very respectable $85 million, with an M. According to Hayek, little Valentina is becoming an entrepreneur herself.
Acting, you guess? Modeling? Maybe working at one of Daddy's company holdings? Nope. She is an amateur chemist and loves making slime, and is constantly tweaking her various recipes for the kid concoction. So popular are her results that kids at school are buying them! Mom is proud of her little creative, scientifically minded daughter. I guess she needn't worry over either grades or dough to afford the college of her choice!
1 Prince George And Princess Charlotte: The Royal Treatment
Of course, we all think our children are princes and princesses. But in the case of Prince George, now 3, and baby sis, Princess Charlotte, 2, they are the real deal. The Brand Finance Group of London estimates the net worth thus far of the tots. They report Princess Charlotte is worth $3.8 billion while big brother is worth a bit less, at $3 billion. Hopefully, they can share nice. Mom Kate is said to be worth $6 billion. However, you configure their money situation, it's fairly meaningless.
After all, the property, the titles, the lifestyle they were born into is theirs to stay regardless of changes in situation or economy. Some of their wealth is near impossible to pin down, but their status is unmistakable. The Brits and folks around the world are mesmerized by the cherubic faced royals.
