Where Are They Now? From Zion To Hailie Jade, The Cute Kids Of Celebrities That Are All Grown Up

January 31, 2013 ‐ By Clarke Gail Baines

When these kids were little, their parents crooned and rapped about them, put them in music videos, took them from place to place on their hip, and in a way, watching them grow up has been like watching someone you personally know age and mature, and it makes us think…dang we’re getting old! Once cute ’90s babies, these famous kids are teenagers or adults trying to find their own way in the world. Some under the radar, some hoping to make it in the entertainment business like their parents. So what are they looking like after all these years?

Lauryn and Zion

Zion Marley

While Lauryn Hill talked about him very often, even dedicating a song to him on her masterful solo effort, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, called “To Zion,” Zion David Marley was a child we really didn’t get to see all that much. Once again, LBoogie came from a time before celebs were posting proud pics of their children online, so Zion had the benefit of growing up outside of all that spotlight. Well, that was until Wyclef decided to publicly claim that Lauryn made him think Zion was HIS son. Today, Zion David Marley is 15 and is the elder brother to Selah, Joshua, John, Sarah, and Lauryn’s last born son from another relationship, Micah. Who does he resemble most to you?

    • MLS2698

      Hmmmm. Some people try to say that’s what Lauryn longed for– a piece of history.

  • BricCity

    Lourdes is Gorgeous!

  • 60harda

    50 kid looks just like him.. 2 2 funny.

  • D Boner

    Is there a reason that only Eminem’s daughter is smiling in her picture? The rest of them don’t look too happy. And Blanket looks downright miserable……

    • chanela

      yes, she is upset because she only got a black Lamborghini and not a black and off black one for her 16th birthday….

  • I’ve always liked Trey. He’s a handsome, level-headed young man, but he never seemed to get as much attention as Will and Jada’s children. And Biggie’s children look EXACTLY like him.

    • chaka1

      Trey is GORGEOUS!!!

  • chanela

    ugh! i wish i could be those kids! no worries except for how to get my name in the spotlight too. lucky jerks!

    • I agree that it would be nice to not have to worry about money. But I’m sure that their lives aren’t all that they’re cracked up to be. You never know; sometimes (not always) their kids have issues. Look at Laurence Fishburne’s daughter.

      • chanela

        yes but in the end most of them won’t have to take the bus anywhere, struggle with resumes,interviews,lay offs,unemployment,not having enough money for food sometimes… won’t have to work a DAY in their life unless they wanted to get the “experience” as a normal person.

        all they have to do is ask mommy or daddy for some money to start their fragrace or clothing line, or some other venture to make a name for themselves because they got bored.

        @nene yes the grass is not greener on the other side all the time, but imagine never having to know what it’s like to say “i wish i could one day travel to france” they can just hop on a plan whenever they feel like it and go. they won’t know what it’s like to have to put items away at a store because there is not enough money to get something.

        those are experiences i could definitely live without. i wish i didn’t have to go to a horrible life draining job just to make pennies and nickels. they say “life is short, so enjoy it” but how can i when i might not be able to do the things i’ve always wanted to do unless i work and save up for 30 damn years, retire at 60 (if i make it to that age with my health and if i don’t get laid off). if they have a school project on italy they can go there and see the sights themselves without having to read it in a book.

        i know i’m ranting but ugh! life is so damn unfair.

        • No, no, trust me, I REALLY understand where you’re coming from. I’m a grad student; do you know how frustrating it is to see people who don’t care about their education (just to be clear, not those who were unable to go to school because of other circumstances, but those who scoff at education and don’t see its use) coast though life, even buy a degree, while I’m trying to be a good student and do it the honest way? Or trust fund babies who feel like they should get preferential treatment, while I commute to school each day? Yes, it isn’t fair that some people are able to snap their fingers and get what they want. Unfortunately, we live in a world that doesn’t always reward good, honest, hardworking people. This is wrong. But at the end of the day, some of these people, rich as they are, are not living in the real world. They don’t know how to shop or balance a budget; if someone took away all their money tomorrow, most of them would be lost. We don’t know how stable they are mentally or emotionally either; just because they’re smiling doesn’t mean that it’s real. I thank God for all that I’ve been through, the experience I’ve gained, that I don’t have to schedule an appointment to see my folks. Everything that we go through helps to make us who we are. I know that people say this all the time, but please don’t give up, or feel like it’s all not worth it. I believe that you will be able to do the things that you want to do. Stay encouraged. 🙂

    • Nene

      I love my life. I don’t want nobody else life. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. Everybody life is what it is for a reason.

  • It was already proven that the “Hailie Jade” Twitter account was fake. Poor reporting…

      OMG right!! No testing needed there. And my goodness he is soooo cute. So is Little Biggie (Chris Jr.). And Miss Lourdes (Lola) grew up beautifully. I expected nothing less. All the kids are cute but those three stood out the most to me.
