How many times have you heard someone say that they hope the baby carries the mother's genes as opposed to those from the father? Every now and then the tables are turned and people seem to hope that the father's genes are strong enough to overpower those from the mother when it comes to appearance -- but why is that? Well, it's more or less down to the fact that society has become obsessed with Hollywood; the clothes, the trends, the fame and most importantly, the looks. So if a particular celebrity doesn't tend to obtain those certain qualities that are usually seen as beautiful or sexy, it's assumed that once those celebs end up having children, their looks will be passed down to their kids. So, taking into consideration all the Hollywood parents who many would like to consider as anything but attractive, their children turned out to be the complete opposite. See who made the list for 11 beautiful celebrity children with unattractive parents below.
11 Blue Ivy, Jay-Z
Following Beyonce’s announcement that she was expecting her first child with Jay-Z, fans were left worried, wondering what the couple’s baby would look like. Many social media users feared that if the baby was a girl and resembled Jay more than Bey, the combination would seem rather strange. Fortunately enough, Blue Ivy has the perfect mixture between both parents — she is often named as one of Hollywood’s beautiful children, and no one can really deny that. From her mother’s curls to some of Jay’s facial features, Blue Ivy avoided the chances of only inheriting her father’s looks.
10 Fahimah, Meek Mill
While Meek Mill may not be the most handsome man in the world, his toddler son, Fahimah, is certainly shaping up to become one hell of a charmer to the ladies. Having posted multiple videos of him and his son on Instagram, it seems as if Meek’s child is beginning to grow quite the fanbase of his own. Similar to the entry above, Fahimah doesn’t really resemble his father that much — apart from some facial features, the youngster must have earned his good looks from his mother’s side, which would make much more sense.
9 Bria Murphy, Eddie
Who would’ve thought that Eddie Murphy’s daughter would one day become a model? Or better yet, who would’ve thought that a man like Eddie could produce this beautiful girl. While Murphy is said to be the father of multiple children, Bria Murphy tends to stick out the most. The 26-year-old, who shares a striking resemblance to her mother, Nicole Mitchell Murphy, left fans stunned when she partook in a lingerie photoshoot looking sexy as can be. Bria supposedly wants to make a career out of her fortunate good looks and it’s not hard to see why — she’s beautiful.
8 Eva Jordan, Stevie J
Stevie J isn’t just a fool when it comes to his character, his looks tend to match his persona, which happens to be anything but attractive — at least according to the ladies who watch Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta on a weekly basis. Stevie, who has close to a dozen number of children, shares a daughter with former girlfriend, Mimi Faust, and while it’s really hard to make out from who Eva got her looks from, it cannot be denied that she’s beautifully stunning.
7 Bella, Mohamed Hadid
Ain’t it crazy to think that real estate businessman Mohamed Hadid, ended up having some of the most stunning children in Hollywood? Hadid, who shares three children with his ex-wife Yolanda, is also the proud father of aspiring model, Bella, who has recently started making a name for herself in the fashion industry. The 19-year-old has walked endless runway shows and is hoping to follow in similar footsteps as her older (and also beautiful) sister, Gigi, who every fashion designer seems to be booking for their shows.
6 Mars, Jay Electronica
Jay Electronica must hate having to hear how people are so stunned to see how beautiful his daughter is — which can be looked at in two ways. How do you react to that? Do you thank the person for the “compliment,” or do you question them as to why they would think their child wouldn’t be beautiful? Either way, the music producer’s child with Erykah Badu, named Mars, is ridiculously adorable. She’s an instant contender for one of the most beautiful youngsters in Hollywood, although, it should be noted that her looks are probably coming from mommy and not daddy.
5 Snoop Dogg, Cori
Snoop Dogg is known to have produced and wrote some of the biggest songs in rap history, but who knew that he was also producing some stunning children. His daughter, Cori, in particular, has received quite a bit of buzz on social media where she has gathered an audience of millions — evidently making her a socialite. And while it’s unclear whether she’s still in school or not, Cori is definitely an adorable teenager. Again, the looks are probably not originating from her father.
4 Zendaya, Kazembe, Claire Stoermer
People can’t get over how beautiful Zendaya is. Every girl seems to envy her, especially after the actress posted a photo of herself without any makeup on. People couldn’t believe how beautiful she was without makeup, clearly indicating that she uses it to enhance her facial features as opposed to painting an entirely new face. With that being said, her parents, Kazembe and Claire, were stunned when Instagram trolls blasted their looks in comparison to their daughter’s. While Zendaya doesn’t resemble either of her parents, the harsh comments were uncalled for.
3 Flavio Briatore, son Nathan Falco
65-year-old billionaire Flavio Briatore, isn’t exactly someone you’d want to shack up with when you are still in your 20s. Well, it depends on who this question is being directed at, because I’m sure the Kardashians wouldn’t mind — as long as there’s money involved. The ageing businessman, who has children as young as five, definitely has the tendency to produce some of the most stunning kids out there, which is shocking, considering that he isn’t exactly a looker. But then again, if old and rich is one’s type, then I’m totally wrong.
2 Master P, Cymphonique
Nine children! Yes, NINE! Master P definitely kept himself busy during the ‘90s, and it’s unclear whether he plans on having any more in the future. What is clear, however, is the fact that the rap mogul’s kids are not only talented but very good looking, too. His 19-year-old daughter, Cymphonique, is definitely a looker, having done some modelling gigs in recent years. She’s supposedly trying to get into the music industry like her father and become the next big thing, reportedly in the lane of R&B, but judging by her looks, she shouldn’t have a hard time making it happen for herself. She already looks like a star.
1 Howard Stern, Ashley Jade
Howard Stern had to make this list for the most obvious reason. The radio personality has said it himself time and time again — the fact that his ridiculously hot wife, Beth, saw something in him baffles him. Particularly because when one looks at Howard, they only see the curly hair that covers up his entire face; to the point where you don’t even know who you are looking at. Maybe Mr. Stern is a handsome guy under all of that hair — I don’t know since I can never see his face. Ashley Jade Stern, one of his three daughters, is definitely a stunner — the looks have gotta be originating from the mother, though. They just have to be.
