Depp dated Vanessa Paradis, a French musician and model, for 14 years from 1998 to 2012. Although they never married, they did have two children. Their oldest is, daughter, Lily-Rose Depp, who was born in 1999 and is 20 years old. Depp’s son was born in 2002 and is named John “Jack” Christopher Depp. He is currently 17 years old.

Depp commented on his relationship with the mother of his children to the Philadelphia Inquirer: “Vanessa and I get along wonderfully. There’s no weirdness at all, no hostility. Life happens. We spent 14 great years together and have raised a couple of kids who we are both incredibly proud of,” Depp said. “I love her and she loves me. She’s a great woman and mom. I have nothing bad to say, ever.”

My Sour Sixteen

With both parents already in showbiz, it was inevitable that Lily-Rose would want to make a name for herself in Hollywood too. The blonde beauty began her career by acting alongside Depp, in the indie film, Tusk. She has continued with roles in several smaller films, mostly premiering at film festivals.

Her most notable project to date is in the Netflix documentary, Period, End of Sentence, with Priyanka Chopra. The film explores how the Pad Project helped women in New Delhi start their own business making sanitary pads. Lily-Rose has also done several modeling projects, including work for Chanel, and appeared in a music video with Irish rapper, Rejjie Snow.

Standing behind the hip personas of her famous parents wasn’t enough for Lily-Rose. She established herself as “effortlessly cool” in her own right, four years ago, when she threw a Sour Sixteen party instead of the traditional sweet sixteen. She made headlines with her Instagram photos of the party, which featured chic costumes, and an onion necklace.

About his daughter, Depp spoke to the Philadelphia Inquirer: “[Lily-Rose] is one of the smartest human beings I have ever known. She has far surpassed myself and my friends. She is just a genius. Lily-Rose is interested in the arts. She is interested in acting, possibly entertaining and signing as well. She’s got the goods. She can certainly deliver. “

Who is Johnny Depp’s son, Jack Depp?

Jack is the most private member of his family. Unlike his sister, he doesn’t have a desire to pursue acting or Hollywood life, even though he inherited his dad’s good looks. About his son, Depp said: “My boy Jack has always been very talented draftsman. He draws really super well. He also plays music very well. He’s got a good feel for that. Aside from school plays and things, he hasn’t shown any desire to become an actor. Whew!”

Last year, Jack made headlines when his mother missed the premiere of her movie, A Knife in the Heart because she was at his side. Jack reportedly suffered from “serious health problems.” We were never told what the health problems consisted of, and a few days later, he was seen out and about, looking healthy.

With insanely cool (and slightly weird) parents like Depp and Paradis, Lily-Rose and Jack are shoe-ins for the young, hip, crowd. The only downside to growing up in the Depp household would be the constant media attention, but they seemed to have handled it well. We’re sure to see more of these two as they get older, and make their own marks on the world.
