You can't count the number of children of stars in Hollywood, and you may not know their identity. Sometimes a celebrity is a family matter. And sometimes, even those directly involved do not know.


It is often said that the world is small; this rule applies even to the world of show business. Some stars discovered they were related after genealogical research was published in the newspapers.

There are some celebrities we have fallen in love with for their performances without even knowing that their family members were also celebrities.

1. Julia Roberts And Emma Roberts

3. Kate Middleton, Elle, And Dakota Fanning


Dakota and Elle Fanning are sisters, and we know this, but the two famous actresses are also descendants of the royal family.
