We’ve known and loved our favorite celebrities for years ahead of their time on our favorite shows. They’ve paved the path to ultimate stardom and accomplished some amazing things along the way. Let’s take a look at their children, who are up and coming in Hollywood.

It’s no secret that our favorite TV judges are currently raising the next generation of Hollywood stars. Though we typically see judge/host’s children on an occasional red carpet, they’re known for more than just their popular parents. Here’s five talent show judge/host’s children that are breaking into their desired industry.

1. Leni Klum

18 year old Leni is the daughter of AGT judge Heidi Klum and businessman Flavio Briatore. Klum broke into the modeling industry in the past two years, with multiple cover shoots involving her mother. She has modeled for Glamour Germany, Tush Magazine, Elle Russia, Harper’s BAZAAR Kazakhstan, Rollacoaster Magazine, and more. She is currently an ambassador for both Dior Beauty and GHD (good hair day, hair tool brand). Klum graduated high school in early June, so we’re sure more modeling gigs are on the way.

2. Sofia Richie

23 year old Sofia is the daughter of American Idol judge Lionel Richie and his second wife Diane Alexander. Richie grew up around music and in turn learned to sing at five years old and play the piano at seven. In present day, she is considered to be a social media personality, model, and fashion designer. Richie has been featured by a dozen of national brands, including Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors, and Adidas.

3. Alex Mandel

Alex Mandel is the eldest son of AGT judge Howie Mandel and Terry Mandel. He is a popular YouTube comedian known for channels “Alex Mandel” and “Alex Mandel Vlog.” He currently has over 46,800 subscribers on Alex Mandel and 471,000 subscribers on Alex Mandel Vlog. Mandel has acted in Hidden Howie: The Private Life of a Public Nuisance, Freak Encounters, Killer Holiday, and more.


4. Monroe Cannon

Last summer, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s daughter, Monroe, appeared in her first commercial. At 10 years old, she modeled for clothing brand OshKosh B’gosh. Within the commercial, Cannon showed off their line of clothes and paid tribute to her mom. In 2017, she voiced the character Michelle in the animated film, “All I Want For Christmas is You.”

5. Isaiah Crews

This 17 year old is the son of AGT host Terry Crews and Rebecca King-Crews. Crews first gained national recognition alongside his family on the BET reality series, The Family Crews. In November 2020, Crews made his acting debut on Nickelodeon as the character Munchy on Side Hustle. Outside of TV, Crews is quite the social media personality, he currently has over 82,700 followers on TikTok.
