Some of them are self-made millionaires!
Sure, some of the richest kids in the world are celebrities and royalty. But some of them are self-made millionaires too! (At least that's better than these rich babies of Instagram.)
It’s interesting to see how the richest kids in the world thrive in the spotlight, and to also observe over time how they grow (or squander) their wealth.
You will recognise this little firecracker from the sitcom Modern Family. Her adorable mug and witty banter on the show has earned her an estimated net worth of $1 million. And she is reported to make up to $25k per episode!
Rico Rodriguez, another Modern Family star, started acting at a very young age but only landed minor roles until his iconic role as Manny. He now reportedly makes over $100k per episode in his new contract with the network.
Elle Fanning is the younger sister Dakota Fanning. She has appeared in many major films since starting off as a child actress in her toddler years. She played the role of the younger version of her sister in I Am Sam to kickstart her career.
Jaden Smith, is the eldest child of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. He kicked off his career as an actor in The Pursuit of Happyness alongside his father. He has also recently gotten into the music industry in the rap genre. Adding all of that with his family’s net worth, Jaden is estimated to be worth $8 million.
Abigail has had a long career in television and film. She started out making commercials and landed her first big role in the film Signs with Mel Gibson when she was six. Abigail continued to land great roles ever since and has appeared in hit movies such as Little Miss Sunshine and Zombieland. Her role in Little Miss Sunshine even earned her an Academy Award nomination.
You may not recognise the name immediately, but Valentina Paloma Pinault is the daughter of the famous actress, Salma Hayek, and billionaire corporate executive, Francois Henri Pinault.
Valentina’s net worth is currently only listed at $12 million, as her only known asset is a $12 million home in her name. But she is in line to inherit a lot more from her wealthy parents.
Nick D’aloisio is the only entrepreneur on the list, checking in with a net worth of $30 million. He is one of the youngest self-made millionaires of all time.
In 2012, Nick created the app Summly, which summarizes news articles. Apple named Summly the best app of 2012. Nick later sold the app to Yahoo! for $30 million to focus on completing his schooling.
Dannielynn is the daughter of the late Anna Nicole Smith. Anna Nicole Smith had $10 million in net worth when she passed away. Dannielynn inherited that and got $49 million more in a lawsuit on her mother’s behalf.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s twins are worth an estimated $67.5 million. While most of this wealth is derived from their parents’ net worths, the two have also built their own wealth. The two have appeared in Vogue. Vivienne played a role in her mom’s movie, Maleficent, as young Aurora.
On the top of the list is Prince George. Princess Charlotte also has a pretty hefty net worth of about half a billion. George, third in line to the throne, receives about $400 million in allowances a year. He has also had everything from a lullaby named after him to special coins made in his honour.
