We’re Curious How These Celebrity Parents Feel About Their Children’s Scandalous Photos

It’s the double-edged sword of celebrity: Everything you do exists on film, the internet, and in photographs to immortalize your choices until the end of time (or your relevance).

The same goes for these celebrity’s kids. Some have made names for themselves as actors, models, or millennial taste-makers. Others have just made some scandalous, coming-of-age choices … in the public eye, naturally. We wonder what mom and dad would say …

Kaia Gerber

The 16-year-old model has faced backlash for racy social media photos in the past. Cindy Crawford’s daughter followed in her mother’s footsteps as a sought-after, talented model. However, at a young age, she’s already posting revealing photos reminiscent of her mother’s 20s.

FOX reported on a picture Gerber posted in just a robe that she captioned her uniform. “I love Kaia with all my heart and she is gorgeous, but she is too young for this type of photo,” a fan commented. Gerber and Crawford declined to comment.

David Hasselhoff’s daughter posed for body-positive magazine SLiNK in lingerie. While the revealing photos may not have been her father’s first choice, we’re pretty sure he would support her message. The model said the shoot helped her embrace her figure.

“Having our cover shoot be in lingerie was a very empowering moment … We as women need to love our bodies for all that they give us, not only what they show. We all have moments of doubt in our body but we must rise above and love our bodies for all that they are.”

Full House and Fuller House star Lori Laughlin has two teenage daughters — Olivia and Isabella — who are her spitting image. However, they project less of a “full house” image than their mother. The two have over 800,000 and 100,000 Instagram followers respectively and aren’t afraid to post about their private life.

Olivia strikes sultry poses to show off her partnerships with brands like Calvin Klein and Amazon Fashion. Isabella, who goes by Bella, opts for the more conservative, while still transparent tops.

The daughter of the one and only Mr. Bean, Rowan Atkinson, took her shot at acting with small roles in comedies both alongside her father (Mr. Bean’s Holiday) and without him (Johnny English Reborn). The aspiring performer chose a new stage for her talents: burlesque cabaret.

She headlined her one-woman show “Lily” on London’s West End in 2016 in cat ears, hot pants, and thigh-high stockings.

Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith’s two children have garnered their fair share of media attention. Willow was caught in a scandal after posing in bed with former Disney star Moises Arias when she was 13 and he 20-years-old. Her mother, Jada, defended the photo, saying there was “nothing sexual about it.”

Jaden is known as a tastemaker for his generation and among his friends. The 19-year-old is a huge promoter of gender-fluid style and has graced magazine covers wearing skirts and dresses multiple times. “If I wanna wear a dress, then I will,” he once tweeted.

Reese Witherspoon’s daughter looks uncannily similar to the Wrinkle in Time star. The 18-year-old inherited more than her mother’s blonde hair and coy smile — she clearly has an artistic side as well. Just take a look at her Instagram filled with edgy drawings, practice with fake blood application, and nude clay dolls.

Billy Joel’s daughter, “The Downeaster ‘Alexa,” is a passionate person — she even told The New York Times how she wanted the decor in her NYC apartment “scarlet red for passion.”

The singer-songwriter isn’t afraid to step out of her comfort zone: In 2017 she posed alongside her mother, Christie Brinkley, and sister, Sailor Brinkley Cook, in Sport’s Illustrated’s swimsuit edition. The 31-year-old takes fashion risks, too. She posted a photo to her Instagram wearing a completely see-through white shirt with a black bra underneath.

The younger daughter of actress Leslie Mann and producer Judd Apatow isn’t one to hold back on social media. Take her Instagram bio as an example: “Hell is a teenage girl.”

The actress isn’t afraid to poke fun at her comedian parents, either. She shared a Snapchat-filtered photo of her alongside her father, Judd, who looked like a piece of toast. She captioned the picture “A piece of toast and its disturbed daughter.”

The daughter of divorced parents Kate Beckinsale and Michael Sheen remains under her mother’s custody but is reportedly close to both parents. Both Kate and Michael flooded social media with their congratulations when Lily got into college.

However, Kate was tied to Matt Rife — a man 22 years her junior — that same summer. Rife, who is only three years older than Lily, was called an “on-and-off-again fling” for Kate. Regardless, Lily posted a bikini photo on social media, reminding her followers she, too, is an adult.

Bindi, the daughter of Terri Irwin and the late “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin, has been called the “ultimate girl next door.” However, according to New Idea, Bindi’s mom wasn’t too happy with her couples’ Halloween costume with her boyfriend.

“Terri wasn’t very happy with Bindi’s sexy Halloween photo and made her feelings known to Bindi and Chandler,” a source told the website. “She loves Bindi and Chandler to bits, but feels they crossed the line with Bindi’s costume and that it was just too raunchy and over the top.”

Dakota Johnson plays Anastasia Steel, the protagonist of the steamy, often-controversial Fifth Shades of Grey movies. So it’s less one specific photo, and more an entire film franchise, that Johnson’s parents have to see.

Or do they? According to Dakota, her famous parents — Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson — will (hopefully) never watch the sex-scene-ridden films. “It’s one thing if a film has one sex scene in it, but with this, a large part of the premise is the arc of their sexual relationship,” she told Glamour UK. “… I think that’s a little inappropriate for my family to watch.”

Like her father, she isn’t shy when it comes to showing off her toned figure. Sistine has posted multiple bikini pictures to her account, including some risque examples of her modeling.

Rapper Eminem (Marshall Mathers) immortalized his daughter Hailie in multiple songs off his platinum records. Other than the occasional mention, Eminem took some serious steps to keep his daughter, Hailie, out of the public eye. However, Hailie began to make a name for herself when she graduated top of her high school class.

The Michigan State University senior shared a picture of herself in a revealing top right before her 22nd birthday.
