Doesn’t it seem like this list should be impossible to populate? After all, in our celebrity obsessed culture, it seems improbable that we’d have no idea that the offspring of those we follow have made their way into show business without us noticing. Yet, sometimes family connections can be detrimental to a career, as it is often impossible to escape the shadow of a famous family member, so it makes sense that some would remain hidden.

When we recently discovered that some famous people we’d followed for years had relatives in show business we were pretty blown away. Reflecting on our astonishment, we came to the conclusion that we couldn’t be the only ones that had no idea how these people have connections to others they’ve known for years. With that in mind, we thought it’d be fun to bring to you, our highly valued readers, a list of the 15 celebrities you didn’t know had kids in show business. If that appeals to you, and it should considering you’re more than likely going to be in for some real surprises, then you’ll be happy you read on.

In order for a celebrity to be considered for placement on this list they first need to be well-known, at least to a significant portion of society. Secondly, they need to have children who’ve begun to make a living in show business. That said, we are limiting ourselves to kids who’ve taken on a more public role. Don’t get us wrong, everyone involved in the creation of a movie or TV show, for instance, plays a role in the production, but if we include kids of celebrities who are working as a PA, this list would be endless. Additionally, we don’t think that many people will find incidences like those all that interesting, and it is always our goal to give our readers a fun and entertaining read. Please keep in mind that we can’t be certain that you will be unaware of all the children of celebrities we are about to list, as everyone’s knowledge base is different, but we do think that you will be surprised by some of them. Now that the rules are outlined, let’s take a look at some famous people and their kids.

The son of a hugely successful actor who continues to get work to this day, Donald Sutherland, Kiefer really shouldn’t have been too surprised when his offspring got into acting herself. Known for shows like 24, Touch and Designated Survivor, Kiefer still arguably owes much of his fame to his film work. Case in point, he had pivotal roles in Stand By Me, The Lost Boys, Young Guns, A Few Good Men, A Time to Kill, Dark City, and so many more. His daughter, however, Sarah Sutherland, is pretty well only known for her recurring role on Veep, where she plays the sole child of the show’s main character. Still, she has brought a unique energy to the role that has made it far more memorable than a lot of other shows that throw a child into the mix just to give a character grounding.
