There has always been an extra special relationship between a father and his daughter and Hollywood has seen its fair share. Gwyneth Paltrow gushed about how wonderful her father was in an interview with Oprah Winfrey and audiences could truly feel the heartbreak when she spoke about his death. After the unprecedented antics during the 2016 Presidential Election, people began to see the father/daughter dynamic between Donald Trump and his daughter, Ivanka. The world already knew about his incredible respect he had for Ivanka since she was a favorite in his television series, The Apprentice. It shouldn’t have surprised people that he would make Ivanka’s role in the White House official once he became president but it still made huge headlines since it raised ethical and legal issues.
The interesting thing is that some of the celebrities from years ago have children that have gone on to become celebrities in their own right. From Don Johnson’s daughter, Dakota Johnson, becoming the lead actress in the Fifty Shades of Grey film series to Miley Cyrus becoming a music artist, sometimes the baton is passed down without much of an overlap. Although people still refer to Miley Cyrus as the daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus, it’s quite clear that she is the real star nowadays. Yet, there are some celebrity fathers that are garnering a huge amount of attention because of the special relationship with their daughters. Check out our list of the 15 father/daughter duos taking Hollywood by storm and see which of these celebs are making huge headlines for their professional and personal careers.
15 Brian And Allison Williams
Brian Williams was once thought of as one of the world’s most respected and successful news anchors and American journalists but a scandal nearly destroyed his career. After it was revealed that Williams had “over exaggerated” a story from his past, he ultimately lost his position as the NBC Nightly News anchor. He was picked up as the breaking news anchor for MSNBC but the scandal really ripped away at his credibility. His daughter, Allison Williams, was the first to come to his defense about the entire situation, even though the scandal was undoubtedly embarrassing for her while she cultivated her own acting career. Upon the conclusion of her series, Girls, Allison Williams starred in her first feature film in the recent horror film, Get Out.
14 Kanye West And North West
Kanye West has made a plethora of headlines over the years and it’s hard to say who has made more controversy, him or his wife. The difference between these two celebrities is that Kanye West first started out his career with a high level of prestige and respect, especially from those in the music industry. Yet, Kim Kardashian started out her career under the dark cloud of obtaining the bulk of her fame through a “leaked” sex tape. When the pair got married and had children, everyone wondered whether or not motherhood would change Kim Kardashian for the better. While she has garnered a number of bad tabloid headlines for her questionable parenting skills, Kanye West seems to have softened people’s negative thoughts about him for the way he is with his daughter. He featured North in one of his music videos and he’s also taken to social media to show off some of their daddy/daughter moments.
13 David And Harper Beckham
There was a time when all of the buzz surrounding David and Victoria Beckham’s family was around their son, Brooklyn. Yet, there is a new star of the family and that is their daughter, Harper. While there are some celebrities that try and hide their children away from the world, there are others that have taken a completely different attitude towards protecting their kids. Instead of ostracizing themselves, the Beckham’s seem to be going about their normal lives without trying to keep their family into a little bubble. David Beckham’s Instagram page is filled with lovely photos of Harper as he proudly displays his beautiful daughter as the one that truly melts his heart. One of the most endearing moments that caused the public to see how their daddy/daughter relationship really is was when the two were caught on a “Kiss Cam” at a hockey game in Los Angeles.
12 Lionel Richie And Sofia Richie
Lionel Richie is thought of as an icon in the music industry and has been able to maintain the popularity of his public persona over the years, unlike some of the other stars that rose to fame during his heyday. There was a time when it was Nicole Richie that was putting Lionel’s name back into the headlines but she has seemed to take more of a backseat in regards to the limelight and it’s her younger sister, Sofia that has truly become front and center. Although she was already making a name for herself in the modeling world, she wasn’t introduced to the mainstream public until she became romantically linked to Justin Bieber. Fans pounced on Bieber’s social media posts when he showed them together and even Selena Gomez got involved in this very public dispute.
11 Stephen And Riley Curry
Stephen Curry is a professional athlete that is currently with the Golden State Warriors. He has made a name for himself over the years for his dedication to the sport, his professionalism, and his incredibly likable personality. His wife, Ayesha Curry has also made a name for herself and was even featured as a television personality for her cooking. From Cooking with the Curry’s to At Home with Ayesha, people loved to see the behind-the-scenes family life of this adorable couple. Yet, it was their daughter, Riley, that truly stole the show. The world became acquainted with Riley when she stole the show at the press conference in 2015 when Stephen Curry was named MVP. There is obviously a bright future for Riley in the world of television because she definitely has the showman style personality that’s perfect for the small screen.
10 Johnny And Lily-Rose Depp
Johnny Depp has been in the headlines recently due to the details surrounding his tumultuous marriage with Amber Heard. The media was already speculating on their relationship since Heard was far younger than him and people began to wonder whether or not she truly loved him. Obviously, the marriage wound up in shambles and it brought up questions regarding how Depp acts behind-the- scenes through Heard’s restraining order incident. Yet, there’s also another female in Depp’s life that is making headlines. Lily-Rose is the daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis and she’s remained pretty much out of the limelight up until 2015. The couple had previously expressed concerns that Lily-Rose would seek out a job in Hollywood but they couldn’t stop her from starting her acting and modeling career in 2015. Although she is thought of as a striking beauty, she’s made a number of headlines due to her heroin chic look.
9 Jay Z And Blue Ivy
When Jay Z and Beyonce first announced that they were going to have a baby, many people speculated on what their child would look like. Although Beyonce is thought of as one of the most beautiful women in the music industry, Jay Z isn’t exactly thought of as Brad Pitt. Mixing their genes would create an interesting look but many people just hoped she would take after Beyonce. Now that Blue Ivy is starting to shed her baby look, it’s become obvious that she’s “Daddy’s Little Girl.” It’s amazing how similar the two look in their facial features and yet, it somehow seems to work on Blue Ivy. She has been photographed at a number of red carpet events and award ceremonies and the public just can’t get enough of the future big sister of their upcoming twins.
8 Lenny And Zoë Kravitz
Lenny Kravitz first became known to audiences through the music industry and was able to evolve over the years into a rock icon. People fell in love with the romance between him and Lisa Bonet and were astonished by the beauty in their daughter, Zoë. When Zoë began appearing in films, it seemed like there was already a huge spark of talent that was yet to be unleashed. Many of her roles have been a bit small, whether it was the flashback scenes in After Earth or the Tempest character in the X-Men: First Class film. Yet, she has managed to truly shine whenever she’s appeared on screen. She’s been featured in some of the hottest films in Hollywood, including the Divergent film series and the 2016 film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. With Zoë’s star rising, it’s great to see Lenny and his daughter on the red carpet together. She’s all grown-up but she still looks like Daddy’s little girl.
7 Quincy And Rashida Jones
There are some celebrities that stay in the headlines due to their recent projects or upcoming appearances but there are others that seem to draw attention through controversy or salacious stories. Quincy Jones is thought of as a genius in the music industry and is personally responsible for cultivating the careers of some of the biggest stars in music. His daughter, Rashida, has made a name for herself as an actress so the two are thought of as an amazing force to be reckoned with in Hollywood. While their accomplishments are profound enough, they remain in the headlines through some of the stories surrounding their personal lives. On April 9 of this year, the Today Show released an interview with Rashida where she divulged some interesting tidbits about her younger life. She claimed that she was once bitten by Michael Jackson’s chimpanzee. In February 2017, Quincy Jones attended a benefit for BOVET 1822 & Artists and Justice and he was photographed looking awfully cozy with the much younger supermodel, Petra Nemcova.
6 Ron And Bryce Dallas Howard
Ron Howard’s backstory is the gold standard when it comes to Hollywood dreams. He started off as an actor on the TV sitcom, Happy Days, as well as The Andy Griffith Show. While other cast members had a dwindling career once the series came to an end, Howard proved that he wasn’t just an actor and he began cultivating his role as a filmmaker. From A Beautiful Mind to Apollo 13, Ron Howard is one of the sought-after directors in Hollywood. He recently made headlines when it was released that he is set to direct and produce the J.D. Vance memoir film, Hillbilly Elegy. In other Hollywood news, his daughter has solidified herself as an actress in her own right, starring in both film and television. Bryce Dallas Howard has appeared in a number of big budget films, from the Twilight series to Jurassic World. Her latest endeavor is also making headlines after the rave reviews from her portrayal in the TV science fiction drama, Black Mirror.
5 Bono And Eve Hewson
As the frontman of the iconic band, U2, Bono has consistently been named one of the most influential individuals from a rock band. This Irish rock star is also known for his passion towards philanthropic works and is always in the headlines due to his charitable endeavors. Bono’s daughter has been able to gain her own recognition apart from her rocker father through her acting endeavors. Eve Hewson began her acting career with the big screen film, Lost and Found, and even had a role alongside Tom Hanks in the 2015 film, Bridge of Spies. However, it was her highly controversial role as Lucy Elkins in the HBO series, The Knick, that really had people considering her as a true actress apart from her celebrity family roots. There’s no doubt that the world hasn’t seen the last of Eve but even just seeing her alongside her father on the red carpet, seems to keep her in the limelight.
4 Diddy And D’Lila Star & Jessie James
Sean “Diddy” Combs has had a number of beautiful women in his life, including Jennifer Lopez and Cassie. Yet, his most notable relationship was with the mother of his children, Kim Porter. When the couple had twin girls, Diddy was the epitome of a glowing father and toted the twins out to numerous television appearances as well as red carpet events. Every moment of their lives seem to be documented through photos and television videos but things have truly started to increase in recent years. Time has gone by quickly with these twin girls, D’Lila Star and Jessie James, growing up in the public eye. Nowadays, they are making a name for themselves as future celebrities in their own right and were even photographed walking the runway together. It shouldn’t be surprising that there is a huge future in store for these twin girls and Diddy seems to be their biggest fan.
3 Corinne And Jamie Foxx
While the news is constantly filled with stories of fathers not taking an interest in their children, Jamie Foxx is a clear example of how that isn’t always the case. Jamie Foxx has always had a hugely private personal life and isn’t the type of celebrity to go around flaunting their famous girlfriends with each new red carpet event. Instead, he’s often taken his daughter, Corinne, as his Plus 1. For years, Foxx has kept the identity of Corinne’s mother and the mother of his 7-year-old daughter, Annalise, a secret from the public. However, Corinne’s mother, Connie Kline, was photographed for the first time in November of 2016. With this newfound information, there has been an increased attention on this ultra famous Daddy/daughter duo. This has only been increased through the various social media posts Corinne has posted about the amazing relationship she has had with her mother, as well as the mutual agreements her mother and father have had with one another over the years.
2 Ryan And Ines Reynolds
When it was announced that Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson were divorcing, people wondered who in the world could top this beautiful buxom blonde. Yet, Reynolds proved that he still had it in him to nab a beautiful young wife and that’s exactly what he did with Blake Lively. The two have welcomed two children together and Reynolds has repeatedly fawned over her whenever he’s been interviewed for a television segment. Boasting about how important it is for men to help change diapers and take care of their children, it has only made him even more appealing. The couple debuted their children in December 2016 during the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony. While the family portraits were adorable, it was the close relationship between Ryan and eldest daughter, Ines, that truly grabbed the public’s heart. Ines showed off her outgoing personality during the event and people couldn’t help but want to see more of this adorable little girl.
1 Ryan And Esmeralda Gosling
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have always been extremely private about their relationship but they seem to be more open about their love, ever since the birth of their two daughters, Esmeralda and Amada. After winning the Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy at the Golden Globes for La La Land, he made sure to thank his wife and he also commented on his “angel” daughters on the red carpet. During the January 2017 issue of GQ magazine, Gosling stated, “Eva’s the dream mother, and they’re dream babies, and it’s like a dream that I’m having right now. I’m dreaming it all.” With him constantly gushing over their girls, it inevitably made the public even more curious about them. Recent photographs have set the Internet on fire due to the amazing genes these two girls have and how they will undoubtedly grow up to be bombshell beauties.
