In 2016, he starred in Disney's remake of The Jungle Book when he was just nine years old.

Speaking to Net-A-Porter in 2019, Naomi said both her children have 'caught the acting bug'.

It seems they've got the bug,' the actress said, adding that her feelings about them heading into showbusiness are 'definitely mixed.

Earlier this month Naomi wed her husbandBilly Crudup for a second time, almost a year to the day after their first courthouse wedding.

And theMulholland Drive star, 55, turned to her Sasha to walk her down the aisle.

Sasha, who towered over his mother, looked dapper in a dark suit and tie as he gave the actress away.

The spitting image of her mother, Ava Phillippe, 24, often joins her lookalike mother on the red carpet at glamorous events.

An artist - whose father is actor Ryan Phillippe, has built up a huge following online showing off her glamorous lifestyle, after first going viral for her uncanny resemblance to her mother.

As well as delving into modelling, Ava, who recently graduated from UC Berkeley, says he parents are supportive about her exploring different industries.

'My parents have always encouraged me to choose the path that's right for me and, you know, guide me along the way to make better choices than I might make,' she said on Pop Base in 2021.

'I'm so grateful for that. That is such a privilege to have parents that support you in that way and want you to be who you truly are meant to be.'

As well as working as an artist, Ava has modelled for Rodarte and a number of celeb-owned brands, including Draper James (which her mother owns), Ivy Park (owned by Beyonce) as well as Path McGrat Labs - the make-up artist to the stars.

Ava's parents, Witherspoon and Phillippe, were together for nearly a decade and married from 1999 to 2008.

In addition to Ava, the former couple also welcomed son Deacon Phillippe, 20, before they announced their separation in October 2006 after seven years of marriage.

Witherspoon is also mum to 11-year-old son Tennessee, whom she shares with her ex-husband Jim Toth.

Apple Martin

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin shocked the world when they named their daughter Apple in 2004

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin shocked the world when they named their daughter Apple in 2004.

The daughter of music and acting royalty, now 20, stayed out of the spotlight most of her childhood with her even telling her famous mother off in 2019 when she posted a picture of her skiing without her consent.

But the student wowed when she made her public debut sitting FROW at the Chanel Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week show in January 2023.

And she appears to be following in her mother's footsteps in more ways than one - she does not use any animal products,

'My daughter has gotten so into clean, non-toxic beauty, vegan. She doesn't want to touch anything that's cruel to animals,'Gwyneth told E! News.

'So, she has really strong values running. It's so nice that it aligns with the products that we already make.'

The teen - who is at college in Nashville - has inherited her mother's famous passion for wellness.

'In this case, the apple really doesn't fall far from the tree,' the Shakespeare in Love star noted.

'Apple is an adult woman now, so we relate to each other like that,' said the actress.

'Of course, I'm always her mama, and she comes to me for those things too. But it's very interesting to really watch her step into herself as a grown woman.'

The blonde beauty also helps her mother with GOOP.

'She influences everything I do,' Gwyneth shared.

'I run everything by her. I value her opinion so much, and she's also such a product person—especially with makeup, much more so than I am.

'I'm very minimal. So as we go more into colour, she's the person I rely on the most.'

Coco Arquette

She's a member of the Arquette acting dynasty and the goddaughter of Jennifer Aniston - so it's perhaps written in the stars that Courteney Cox's daughter Coco is destined for showbusiness.

She's a member of the Arquette acting dynasty and the goddaughter of Jennifer Aniston - so it's perhaps written in the stars that Courteney Cox's daughter Coco is destined for showbusiness.

Coco, 20, whose father is Scream star David Arquette, already has acting credits alongside her mother inJust Before I Go and Cougar Town.

She's also posted videos singing - including Adele's hit song Chasing Pavements.

'I love my Coconut's voice,' Courtney praised.

Coco also sat next to Jennifer Aniston when Courtneyreceived a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

At one point Aniston seemed to break down in tears as she listened to a speech then clapped away as Coco looked on

In April, the Friends star went on Minnie Driver's Minnie Questions podcast and shared her regret of not stepping into certain situations when Coco was younger.

'I wish so bad I could have realised in the moment a way to protect Coco from things that I didn't, because of my own issues, whether it was codependency or seeing her in relationships with people I knew this was not good,' Courteney explained. 'But I didn't want to step in, even though I knew something wasn't right, because she would get so mad at me.'

Recalling some of the conversations the pair would have, the Dirt alum noted, 'She [would say], 'Let me deal with it mum, you don't understand.' And I did understand, and I should have [trusted] myself and I should have stepped in. So, with certain things about myself, she saw them.'

'I'm not saying I made her who she is, but you do see things in other people, whether it's just always taking care of people and being the nicest person,' Courteney continued.

'And I mean, that's one of the things with age, I've learned to say no, I've learned to have boundaries. But I mean, earlier on when she was a kid, or not even that many years ago, I wish I'd been a firmer parent.'

However, some things came smoothly to Courteney, like her daughter's easygoing nature when it comes to where she shops.

''Thank God, Coco isn't into really high-end clothes or designer anything,' she told Minnie.

'She doesn't care about labels.

'And thank God that she shops for her clothes on Amazon, because she could be this other kid [like] 'I want fab Gucci.' And you'd have to spend your whole life saying no.'

Courteney has been vocal about boundaries in the past, telling People in 2022 about her then 17-year-old, 'We fight. I've learned that boundaries are important and to keep them because I know it makes her feel safe. But I'm not always good with boundaries. I get worn out.'

Honor Warren

Jessica Alba is another noughties icon who brings her now teenage children to red carpets. The Honey star, 43, has been seen with her 16-year-old daughter at Wimbledon, on trips to Paris and on the red carpet for the premier of Trigger Warning (pictured)

Honor, whose father is Jessica's husband producer Cash Warren, also often attends Honest Company events alongside her businesswoman mother. And despite Jessica being adored around the world, she's said that her daughters find her embarrassing

And despite Jessica being adored around the world, she's said that her daughters find her embarrassing.

'I'm the definition of cringey [to my daughters]. They actually said that I should use the hashtag 'cringeymum'. And I'm like, 'That's so mean! There's so many more cringey mums than me, guys!'

She added that the pair go to therapy togther.

'Like my 13-year-old, I'm struggling with not treating her like a little [kid]— I want to treat them all like babies. I want to baby them,' she told PEOPLE.

'Still, my tendency is to parent them as if they are little. I started going to therapy with her I think when she was 11.'

Ellery Walker Harper

His mother and grandparents are all successful actors, so it's no surprise Ellery Walker Harper is heading into the world of fashion. The 22-year-old son of Laura Dern is a successful model, making his runway debut at New York Fashion Week in 2018 at Raf Simon's Calvin Klein show
