Recently, the world has become obsessed with nepotism babies, especially following Vulture’s viral piece on them just a few months ago. For the uninitiated, a nepotism baby is someone working in Hollywood right now who has some sort of family connection to the industry—usually famous parents.

Are they even all that talented? Who’s to say.
I am deeply fascinated by the world of nepotism babies because sometimes they are actually hard to spot, until you see their parents have their own separate Wikipedia page.
