3 young celebrities who were already rich kids

Born with a silver spoon? But of course!


Thought these fabulous celebs rose up from rags to riches? Think again. Sure, they aren’t obvious like Willow and Jaden Smith or Miley Cyrus, but they definitely had a little “money edge” in combination with famous parents. Voice and dance training, acting school, professional headshots - these are not cheap endeavours on the path to perfecting one's craft and getting noticed.

PopCrush reported on 10 pop stars who were rich when they came out of the womb - some obvious, some not. Here are our three picks from the list that seem a little more unsuspecting.

Darren Criss

Known for his role on Glee, Darren has a pedigreed past. His father is a senior banker, acting as the Chairman and CEO of EastWest Bank when Darren was young; he was also on the Board of Directors for the San Francisco Opera. If you aren’t aware, it's not so easy to get on the board of an opera - you typically need to open up your wallet in a big way.

Jordin Sparks

PopCrush credits her for not using her daddy’s fame to get her foot in the door and we agree! But dad’s chequebook couldn't have hurt in all that voice prep. Phillippi Sparks is a former NFL cornerback for the Dallas Cowboys and N.Y. Giants - no big deal, right? Jordin, of course, became famous in her own right after winning ‘American Idol’ Season 6.

Robin Thicke

Robin might be the most surprising of them all. But a double take of his looks and you can see his dad’s resemblance instantly. Let’s throwback to the 80s and the television sitcom hit ‘Growing Pains’ - remember Dr. Jason Seaver? Yep, Robin is Alan Thicke’s son. Robin’s mother, Gloria Loring, is also famous for her role as Elizabeth Chandler on the soap opera ‘Days of our Lives’. Robin, singer of the current summer hit ‘Blurred Lines’, most likely had no trouble networking or connecting with the right people with two TV veterans as parents.
