Nepo babies is a big trendy term in the entertainment industry right now. It seems the Internet can’t get enough of the offspring of the glamorous and good-looking A-listers, especially in Hollywood.
Search “nepo baby” on TikTok and you’ll see why. There are plenty of videos explaining the term and showing us many examples. Kaia Gerber, daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford is an example of a nepo baby. So are Willow and Jaden Smith (children of Will Smith), Lily-Rose Depp (daughter of Johnny Depp), and Brooklyn Beckham (son of David and Victoria Beckham).
The big debate these days is whether being a nepo baby gives these offspring an unfair leg up in what is normally a cutthroat industry. This idea has made them quite a target, even though many are successful in their own right (and also argue quite rightfully that they can’t control what family they are born into).
Here in Singapore we’ve got our very own nepo babies who have also found success, whether this has been by following in their parents footsteps or venturing into new industries on their own. Here we look at some of these successful second generation stars and what they’re up to.
