Celebrity Kids Who Love Sports

Scoring a winning goal, stretching yourself to the limit, bonding with your teammates, and having fun — those are just some of the benefits of playing sports! Sports have been linked with lower amounts of anxiety and depression, higher self-esteem and confidence, increased creativity, reduced risk of cancer and diabetes, and increased life satisfaction among other things, according to research compiled by the National Youth Sports Strategy. So it’s no wonder why so many parents sign their kids up for youth sports!

Celebrities are no different, and many famous athletes have kids who’ve inherited their love of a good game (and their athletic prowess). Some play sports with their parents, like Serena Williams and her daughter Olympia, 4, and Tiger Woods and his son Charlie Axel, 13. Others were inspired by their famous parents, like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s daughter Simone Johnson, 20. Still others play a completely different sport from their famous parent, like the late Kobe Bryant’s daughter Natalia, 19, who prefers volleyball over basketball.

Loving sports doesn’t necessarily mean the kids are pros — it just means they have an interest and appreciation for a friendly competition. For example, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s oldest children, Prince George, 9, and Princess Charlotte, 7, enjoy watching games at live sporting events with their parents.

It’s awesome to see celebrity parents encouraging their kids to play, watch, and enjoy a good game! From cute babies to grown up professionals (and everything in between), keep reading to learn more about these celebrity kids who love sports.
