With his cooler than cool looks, you’d never pick out Matt Healy’s parents from a line-up.
Surprisingly to many, they are actors Denise Welch and Tim Healy, inset, who must be proud their lad scooped two Brits with his band The 1975 at Wednesday night’s awards.
But Matt’s certainly not the first example of fame breeding fame.
Call it genes, contacts, nepotism, or a dash of all three, there’s many a celeb mum and acclaimed dad who have offspring set to become famous in their own right.
Alice Eve – Trevor Eve and Sharon Maughan
The 37-year-old, best known for her role as Erin the nanny in Sex and the City 2, is the daughter of Trevor, 67, and Sharon, 68.
Dad played the lead in cop series Shoestring and mum was in Holby City as nurse Tricia Williams.
All three starred in 2010 film She’s Out Of My League…as parents and daughter, of course.
Daisy Lowe – Gavin Rossdale and Pearl Lowe
Model Daisy Lowe was a clear favourite when she joined Strictly in 2016.
Her looks are clearly from singer-songwriter turned textile and fashion designer mum Pearl but her musicality probably comes from dad Gavin, inset, frontman of rock band Bush.
Roman Kemp – Martin Kemp and Shirlie Holliman
The chatty Capital FM presenter, 26, has entertaining in his genes.
His dad is Spandau Ballet bassist Martin, 57, while his mum Shirlie, 56, was half of girl band Pepsi & Shirlie.
Dakota Johnson – Melanie Griffiths and Don Johnson
Dakota, 29, best known for 50 Shades of Grey, is the daughter of Miami Vice’s Don and Working Girl star Melanie. Gran is Tippi Hedron.
Lily-Rose Depp – Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis
No prize for guessing this one. Actress and model Lily-Rose, 19, looks the spit of ultimate megastar and Pirate of the Caribbean Johnny and his former partner of almost 15 years, French singer and actress Paradis.
Kate Hudson – Goldie Hawn and Bill Hudson
Kate’s big film break was in Almost Famous. But the 37-year-old’s parents are hardly unknown – mum Goldie, 73, could pass as a twin while dad Bill, 69, is an actor and musician.
Jack Roche – Coleen Nolan and Shane Richie
Jake, 26, has forged a career as a teen idol in band Rixton. Singer mum Coleen, 53, can take credit for the voice but the face is all that of actor, comedian and presenter Shane, 54.
