There are stars who have too many children, stars who have children who are too spoiled (and that’s quite normal) but the most important thing when you’re a child of a star is to have a godfather or a well-known godmother, what’s the point otherwise? To say that there are kids who grew up with Lady Gaga as godmother or Elton John… whereas you are just your mother’s brother who is not even famous, too bad.
