John C. Reilly's Son Has Grown Up To Be Gorgeous

Actor John C. Reilly has enjoyed a long and successful career in Hollywood, starring in everything from Step Brothers to Guardians of the Galaxy, to name a few well-known hits. The Illinois native was even nominated for an Oscar á la his work in Chicago, scoring a nod for Best Supporting Actor. Perhaps Reilly's triumphs can be attributed to his ability to diversify his work, as he can easily transition between comedies and dramas. "I just try to have fun," Reilly told on the topic of his success. "Honestly, I prefer being employed to being unemployed. So whatever stuff comes my way ... I try not to do one type of the same thing. I try to switch it up as much as possible because it's worked so far. It's one way to have longevity as an actor.'"

The Holmes & Watson star is also successful where it concerns his family, having been married to Alison Dickey since 1992. The couple has two sons together, one of which happens to be turning heads at the moment for his talents and looks. In fact, it's safe to say John C. Reilly's eldest son has grown up to be gorgeous.

John C. Reilly adores his kids

John C. Reilly loves being a parent alongside his wife, producer Alison Dickey. He told Parade in 2008, for instance, that he "dreads the day" when his kids will leave the house. "Maybe there will come a time when I'll get tired of them," he joked at the time. "But I really depend on my kids for company." He continued, "I love every minute of being with them."

Not only does Reilly enjoy being around his kids 24/7, but he even used them to help prepare for his hysterical role in Step Brothers. He explained to the outlet how he'd watch the then young siblings "losing it when they didn't get something they wanted or fighting with each other," giving him the perfect basis for his immature character. "I would watch them for a little while until it got so annoying I'd have to make them stop. But I picked up a few things." 

Ha! You never where inspiration might come from, right? 

John C. Reilly's son is a hot topic

John C. Reilly's eldest son, Leo Reilly, is a 21-year-old model and aspiring musician. Leo — who has straight black hair and sometimes sports two different eye colors — has modeled for fashion house Moschino. Leo's personality especially shines on Instagram, where he often shares quirky selfies and pictures of himself hanging out around Los Angeles. It appears fans are drawn to the young adult's aesthetic, as he has amassed 120,000 followers at the time of this writing.

As for the finer details of Leo's life, he was a student at Los Angeles' Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM), where he studied fashion design. "I want to have my music career and fashion career go hand in hand," he said in a student profile for the school. "FIDM is helping me learn about every aspect of being a fashion designer so that I can have a solid understanding of what needs to happen every step of the way. I also want to have a space where people can do concerts, runway shows, pop up shops, really whatever they want—I just want to be able to facilitate a space for people to showcase what they are passionate about." Speaking of music, Leo released a single, "BOYFREN," under the name LoveLeo in February 2020.

If you think John's son sounds like a catch, we have some bad news — he's currently dating a fellow model named Julia Marie. 

Leo Reilly is a jack of all trades

Leo Reilly hasn't given interviews with any major outlets yet, so there isn't too much information about him online. However, the aspiring musician did reveal a few interesting tidbits about himself in his student profile for FIDM, sharing, "I didn't know how to snap my fingers until I was in high school. I have a pet fish named Atticus who is an absolute angel. I can juggle pretty well too if that counts for anything." What a curious collection of attributes, right? 

Leo also shared a little bit about himself in conversation with his friend and YouTuber, Ari Cagan, for an episode of Side of One Fern with Ari Cagan. Cagan asked the designer a series of sarcastic questions on the topic of maturity, asking if he finds "small talk" exciting. Leo initially said no, but quickly changed his answer to, "Well, with long lost friends I haven't seen in a while." And when asked whether sleep is better than a night out, he replied, "Probably."

It's safe to say Leo is an enigma, and maybe that's what contributes to his appeal.
