Celeb Kids Who Are Best Friends With Each Other

Hollywood circles are surprisingly small and celebs often run in the same crowd, so legit friendships develop, even among youngsters. Therefore, it's not surprising that the children of famous people also become BFFs, hang out, and dress well, among other things.

When you are a celeb offspring, you are part of a unique club that often includes financial security, disposable income, a trail of paparazzi documenting your every move, and the sort of privilege that the rest of us just don't "get." That shared experience is why these celeb kids of all ages are drawn to one another, either by proximity or scheduled play dates.

Whether we're talking cute snaps of infants and toddlers playing together on the floor, or spotlight-stealing Instagrams at A-list events, these celebrity besties inspire squad goals from the time they're in diapers to their first modeling gigs. Let's take a look at some of the famous cliques that we'd all love to, but will never be, a part of.

'Just lookin' for Pearl'

Luca Comrie is the son of Lizzie McGuire actress Hilary Duff and NHL player Mike Comrie. Pearl Osbourne is the daughter of Jack Osbourne (rocker Ozzy Osbourne's son) and "lifestyle blogger" Lisa Osbourne. According to E! News, the adorable tykes, who are 5-years-old as of this writing, have been friends since Duff and Osbourne took them to "the same baby class in West Hollywood" in 2013.

Since then, Luca and Pearl's friendship has been well documented on social media, like in this adorable Instagram shot (above) that Osbourne posted of the pair chowing down on some gelato in February 2015. Duff also documented the ice cream date, then about a month later, she posted a solo shot of Luca wearing a "Sup Girl?" t-shirt with the caption, "#justlookinforpearl." Cuteness overload!

GOOP + Coldplay + Jay + Bey = BFF kids? No Way!

Apple Martin and Blue Ivy Carter's budding friendship is second only to the unlikely BFF status of their famous parents, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, and Beyoncé and Jay-Z, respectively. According to E! News, the fabulous foursome first became friends in the early 2000s, which resulted in multiple memorable appearances at each others concerts, as well as at the 2007 Oscars.

But it wasn't until Paltrow posted this photo to Instagram — which showed Apple and Blue Ivy apparently backstage at the Super Bowl 50 halftime show where both Apple's dad and Blue Ivy's mom performed — that we found out these famous daughters were also joined at the hip. More social media evidence of the friendship ensued, like this Instagram post (above) of the two girls, which Paltrow captioned, "Birthday brunch squad #godsistersandbesties."

Then, of course, there's the way both Beyoncé and Paltrow speak about each other's kids, which left little chance the young ones wouldn't hit it off. "I think for us, protecting our daughters is so important," Beyoncé told E! News of her parenting kinship with Paltrow. "She is a powerhouse," Gwyneth once said of Blue Ivy, adding, "And she's just super smart and I love her so much."

Lil Yachties

Rock legend Elton John and his partner, David Furnish, have been co-vacationing with actor Neil Patrick Harris and his partner, designer David Burtka, since at least 2011. It was then that they were first spotted deboarding their broods from a luxury yacht in St. Bart's, according to the Daily Mail, who reported on the first supposed playdate for John and Furnish's then-7-month-old son Zachary, and Harris and Burtka's then-10-month-old twins, Gideon and Harper.

The luxe getaway/playdate has been an annual tradition ever since, according to Us Weekly, who reported that Harris once told Access Hollywood of John and Furnish, "They're super great parents. They're so fiercely involved in their son's life, and it's really kind of great to watch them interact with him."

Seven years later, Furnish revealed on his Instagram that the famous friends are still getting together each year, noting, "Our kids get on so well."

Double BFF: 'A dream come true'

It was a foregone conclusion that singer and fashion designer Jessica Simpon's daughter, Maxwell, would end up close with Cacee Cobb's daughter, Wilder. After all, Cobb and Simpson have been true BFFs since Cobb was Simpson's assistant way back in the day. It comes as no surprise that Maxwell, who is three years older than Wilder, was more than ready to snuggle in this heart-melting Instagram shot taken just a few months after Wilder was born. "Maxwell and Wilder – a dream come true for me and @caceecobb #DoubleBFF," Simpson captioned the post.

Two years later, Maxwell and Wilder were still stealing the show on Simpson's Instagram, playing dress-up and making pouty faces in a shot (above) captioned, "Besties raising Besties #dreamscometrue #maxandwilder #bff." And it's not just the girls who have become fast friends. Cobb and Simpson's sons, Rocco and Ace, who are just three weeks apart in age, have been dubbed "BFF's in the making!"

Cobb's husband, Scrubs star Donald Faison, talked about the tots' relationship with Us Weekly: "Whenever we're over at Jessica's house we bring our kids and the kids play together. They love each other. They're kind of like cousins more than they are best friends."

Uncle Jimmy

Actress Drew Barrymore and producer Nancy Juvonen have been friends and business partners for decades, even before Barrymore introduced Juvonen to her now-husband, Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon. As is the situation with so many celebrity kid BFFs on this list, their daughters, Frankie & Olive Kopelman (Barrymore's daughters with ex-husband Will Kopelman) and Winnie Fallon have already begun mirroring their moms' friendship.

Jimmy shared a few of the tiny tots' playdates on an episode of The Tonight Show in 2014. "Our babies play with each other ... they're pals," the late night host said as he showed the audience adorable photos of the three girls hanging out together."

Just like the Faison-Johnson clan, the Fallon-Kopelman kids are also more family than friends at this point. Barrymore described Fallon as "Uncle Jimmy" to her kids, telling to People that one of her daughters even gets "sad" when she misses the opportunity to see him.

There's no word yet on how Fallon and Juvonen's second daughter, Frances, who was born one year after Winnie, is getting along in the "framily," but something tells us she'll fit in just fine.

Come on, they planned that, right?

Actresses Sarah Michelle Gellar and Reese Witherspoon have known each other since they starred in the '90s classic, Cruel Intentions. Even though (spoiler alert!) their characters certainly did not end up BFFs at the end of that movie, their real life sons have definitely hit it off.

Speaking with Entertainment Tonight in 2015, Gellar said, "Reese's son and my son are best friends." Gellar was referring to Tennessee, Witherspoon's son with her husband, Hollywood agent Jim Toth, and Rocky, Gellar's son with her husband, actor Freddie Prinze Jr. Not only were the boys born just eight days apart in September 2012, they both have the same middle name— James!  

We have yet to see any glimpses on social media of the boys palling around, but we bet they have an absolute blast together.

An 'electric connection'

Though she hasn't been friends with fellow actress Toni Collette for nearly as long as she has with her lifelong BFF and business partner, Nancy Juvonen, Drew Barrymore said that she and her Miss You Already costar felt an "electric connection" after meeting on the set of the 2015 drama — and that connection translated directly to their children.

"Our kids became friends and they're still best friends, and we've traveled together ... we got lucky," Barrymore told the Daily Mail of the serendipitous fusion of families.

Interestingly, the aforementioned film almost didn't happen, because Barrymore had just given birth to her second daughter, Frankie, and she wasn't sure she was ready to go back to work. However, a letter from Collette convinced Barrymore that the movie had a story worth telling, and one that would be a powerful lesson for not only Barrymore's daughters, Frankie and Olive, but for Collette's own kids, Sage and Arlo.

You can't sit with Paris Jackson

The late Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris Jackson, has been making a name for herself — and an absolute gaggle of celebrity friends — ever since she hit the professional modeling scene in 2017. One of her most notable pals is actor Macaulay Culkin, her dad's former friend, who also happens to be her godfather, and with whom she shares a matching tattoo. (But Culkin's parents aren't famous, so in keeping with our headline, let's focus on Jackson's BFF status with fellow model Bella Hadid, instead.)

After posing with Hadid for the first time on her Instagram (above) during Fashion Week in January 2017, Jackson was later snapped in an infamous "bad girls" photo, posted by Edie Parker designer Brett Heyman. The pic features Jackson, Ruby Rose, and Lara Stone sitting on the bathroom floor next to badass Bella, who flagrantly smoked a cig— right in the middle of the prestigious MET Gala! So, it seemed that not only had Jackson arrived, but she was instantly part of the cool clique.  

But that's apparently not what Jackson's all about. Speaking with Teen Vogue, she said that making a difference is her entire goal for embracing her celebrity status. "So everything that I'm doing — the acting, the modeling — it's all just to grow my platform so I can use my voice for things that matter." You hear that, Bella? Go ahead and put out that butt; nobody's impressed.

'They basically feel related'

Actresses Michelle Williams and Busy Philipps have been BFFs since their days on Dawson's Creek, and it's sure looking like Matilda Rose (Williams' daughter with the late Heath Ledger) and Birdie Leigh (Philipps' daughter with screenwriter Marc Silverstein) are headed down the same path.

Williams and Philipps are so close, they consider each other family, Philipps told People in 2016. "[Our daughters] consider each other sort of like, cousins, in a way. I feel like that's the best representation of their relationship. They basically feel related." Philipps is even Matilda's godmother, according to Popsugar, who documented public outings between the A-list offspring going all the way back to when Birdie was just 2-years-old. There was even a question about their friendship on Jeopardy back in 2015 — it doesn't get much more official than that. 

The notoriously press-shy Williams (who isn't even on social media) doesn't share photos of Matilda, and as far as we can tell, Philipps respects that privacy. So for now, we'll have to wait to see if Matilda and Birdie end up landing a reference on America's favorite quiz show as adults. But if we had to guess, we'd take "What's a sure bet for $800, Alex?"

The celebrity bestie struggle is real

The world of fashion is often characterized as a cut-throat realm, but for models Kendall Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid, and Hailey Baldwin, the world of haute couture served as catalyst for one of the most glamorous celebrity bestie squads ever. In fact, they even have a name for themselves. According to Jenner (daughter of Olympian Caitlyn Jenner and Kardashian momager Kris Jenner,) her celeb clique is known as "the Super Natural Friend Group."

Okay yes, that does indeed sound "lame," to use Jenner's own self-deprecating term, but it's also nice to know that not all of Hollywood is a real life Mean Girls set. Only we're not quite sure Baldwin — yes, of those Baldwins (She's Stephen's daughter; Alec's niece) — is on board with the branding.

Speaking with Yahoo's Be, Baldwin tossed some shade at Taylor Swift's infamous squad and also inadvertently slammed the Super Natural Friend Group at the same time. "I don't think that you need to create a public squad. I don't know what that proves," she said. "So I don't really understand the Taylor Swift squad at all."

This, of course, presents a conflict of interest for Gigi Hadid, daughter of former model and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Hadid, who is most definitely also a Tay-Tay squad member, and who told Harper's Bazaar, "It's better to have a few really good friends than tons of friends you aren't really sure about."

And what does Gigi's sister, Bella, think of all of this? We don't even want to know — there's enough beautiful bestie drama going on already.

'A special relationship'

Comedy queen Melissa McCarthy and Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock first hit it off on the set of the 2013 action-comedy The Heat. They became close friends afterwards, and so did their children: Louis (Bullock's adopted son) and Vivian and Georgette (McCarthy's two daughters with fellow actor Ben Falcone.)

Speaking with E! News about the kiddos' kinship, McCarty said they have "a special relationship." She added, "Louis was my Georgie's first friend her own age. And all three of our kids, my two kids and her boy, they still play together."

Bullock backed up the sentiment in a chat with Parade. "Louis was like [McCarthy's] third child, the way he fit together with Vivi and Georgie. And they were so loving with each other." 

But that doesn't mean McCarthy and Bullock go out of their way to publicly flaunt the kids' friendship. In fact, they're both pretty firm on where they stand regarding their kids' privacy. "Strangers shouldn't be allowed to take a picture of your child and sell it for profit," McCarthy told Parade. "We're adults, and we're fair game ... But I instinctively throw things over Louis's head." Bullock agreed when talking about dealing with the paparazzi. In fact, the last time they were all photographed together "in the wild" so to speak was back in 2013 when they were heavily costumed for trick-or-treating.

Neither actress shares photos of the kids on social media, either (Bullock doesn't even have Instagram or Twitter.) For now, we'll just assume little Louis, Vivian, and Georgie are still getting along.
