Not All Celebrity Children Love The Limelight! Here Are The Star Kids That You Probably Didn’t Even Know Existed

Becoming famous comes with its own baggage of having every little detail of your life exposed to hundreds or thousands of people, depending on how famous you are. It’s not always the most comfortable position to be in at times but it’s one thing to become famous slowly and gradually which gives you ample time to adjust to the new life and it’s completely another to be born famous. You are forced into a life you did not choose and everyone may not be able to adjust well.

Whereas some celebrities like Beyonce are extremely expressive about having kids to the point of sharing pregnancy and postpartum body photos, some prefer to keep it under covers in an attempt to give their children a normal life away from the limelight. Here’s a list of those celebrities:

11. David Bowie and Iman:

Only once did the couple posted a picture of their daughter on Instagram to show her their love on her 17th Birthday. It is possible that they waited for her to be old enough before they deliberately brought the world’s attention to her.
