Problem Of Choice: Can Celebrity Parents Decide If Their Child Should Become Popular?
Celebrities are actually unique people who have tasted the life of ordinary personalities and famous identities. The question is what they think about passing the "popularity gene" to children.
Expecting Hollywood mothers
Among the mother-to-be celebrities, there are plenty of famous actresses. Eva Longoria is expecting a boy after announcing about her pregnancy in December the previous year.
Caitlin McHugh is going to give birth to a baby for John Stamos as it has been said in December as well.
Kim Kardashian is also waiting for the third child, and before you say that there are no signs of the celebrity’s pregnancy, it is important to mention that the West family is using surrogate mother as doctors warned Kim of possible problems.
Who has the say in the matter?
The actual opinion on making your child famous began with Tyra Banks who commented that she doesn’t want her son to be a model. She mentions, it is not a job for a boy, and she doesn’t know what it may lead to.
Thomas Rhett also stated he wouldn’t encourage his daughters to become singers and leaves everything to their choice:
My dad told me the same thing. It’s a tough business for sure, and it’s very competitive. But if they were that passionate about it, I would be super supportive.
Louis Tomlinson also lets his son decide his own fate. The musician will support his child in everything the one will choose in the future.
Even though Nick Cannon told that his children enjoy cameras and producing, he wouldn’t mind if they choose another career. But anyway, that is not him who is able to control it.
Ben Affleck doesn’t want his children to be anything until they consciously understand that:
If they are 18 and they want to make those choices and do that kind of thing, that's fine. But being a child actor, I just know too much of the downside of what that can be like.
Although their parents sometimes are against popularity, some children eventually become celebrities until 18.
The vivid examples of that are the Beckham’s, Willis’, Jagger’s, McDermott's, and other families that remain famous through generations.
