Is Neneh Cherry's daughter Mabel the next big thing?
When both of your parents are talented and famous, it seems like a no brainer that you will end up...well, talented and famous. This is not a new phenomenon; just look at Kate Hudson (parents: Goldie Hawn and Bill Hudson), Dakota Johnson (parents: Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson) and Lisa-Marie Presley (parents: Priscilla Presley and, err, ELVIS) for starters. But there’s a new crop of celebrity offspring - the product of some of our favourite stars of the Nineties - making their way up the ranks with stellar parental credentials that have us really excited about their upcoming careers. Meet the new kids on the block…(and no, none of them are actually the offspring of any members of New Kids On The Block, sadly).
Name: Mabel McVey
Parents: Neneh Cherry (she of Manchild fame) and Cameron McVey (producer, Massive Attack/All Saints/Sugar Babes)
Why we’re excited: Her debut single, Know Me Better, has already been had airplay on Radio 1 before it’s even been released. To be honest, if it’s even half as good as her mum’s amazing hit Buffalo Stance (written by her dad), we’re in.
Name: Zoe Kravitz
Parents: Lenny Kravitz (leather-clad rocker of Are You Gonna Go My Way fame) and Lisa Bonet (the one you had a girl crush on in The Cosby Show)
Why we’re excited: You might have already caught Zoe on screen starring in The Divergent Series and Mad Max: Fury Road. But she’s also a talented musician; check out her music with her band Lolawolf on YouTube.
Name: Frances Bean Cobain
Occupation: Visual artist/film producer
Parents: Kurt Cobain (grunge legend) and Courtney Love (lead singer of the band Hole)
Why we’re excited: She’s been pretty under-the-radar but since producing the HBO documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck (released earlier this year), we’re wondering if a movie career beckons…
Name: Lily-Rose Depp
Parents: Johnny Depp (cheekbones; general hotness) and Vanessa Paradis (gap-toothed French beauty who once sang about a taxi)
Why we’re excited: The world went crazy from her first public appearance and now that she’s the face of Chanel (including walking on the catwalk at couture) we can’t wait to see what’s next.
Name: Rafferty Law
Parents: Jude Law (we never quite got over him all tanned and in shorts in The Talented Mr Ripley TBH) and Sadie Frost (model; London socialite)
Why we’re excited: The spitting image of his dad, Raff (as he’s known to his mates and all of Instagram) has already walked for DKNY at men’s fashion week and plays in a band called Dirty Harrys #multitalented
Name: Brooklyn Beckham
Parents: David Beckham and Victoria Beckham (no further explanation needed)
Why we’re excited: Brooklyn has been a part of our lives for so long we’re sure he must be at least 25. Is he really only 16? As well as being signed to a model agency, rumour has it that he’s hot tipped in L.A. to be the next big thing in acting.
Name: Anais Gallagher
Parents: Noel Gallagher (eyebrows; wrote Wonderwall etc) and Meg Matthews (party queen of the 90s)
Why we’re excited: Already modelling and presenting on CBBC, at 15 we’re anticipating her career will skyrocket in the next three years. Could she be the next Fearne Cotton?
