Classic Hollywood starlets evoke a beautiful sense of nostalgia and longing for days gone by. Even today, we remain captivated by the images of Audrey Hepburn and Sophia Loren. And why not? These Hollywood starlets represent the type of beauty and elegance that is not often seen in movies and television today. But luckily for us, we don’t just have photos to remember them by…
We also have their beautiful children!
Old Hollywood starlets’ children may not be as well known as their famous moms in most cases. But you no doubt have seen pics of the little cuties (with some seriously stellar genetics) walking hand in hand with mama on the red carpet. But by now, you’re probably wondering what the classic Hollywood starlets’ little tykes are up to these days.
Well, for one thing, they’re not little tykes anymore!
Apart from being all grown up, they’re also out in the world exploring their own dreams. Some of them followed in the footsteps of their famous parents, while others chose a totally different career path.
Either way, we know you want to see what they look like now! And oh boy, do we have a sight for sore eyes in store for you. See the best then-and-now pictures of Hollywood starlets’ children in the jaw-dropping images below.
