Living in reality, modern individuals know all about what it’s like to wear our older sibling’s hand-me-down clothes. Sometimes we fought it (especially when we were really young and had no interest whatsoever to look like our older siblings) while other times we welcomed it (like in our teens when we were often caught sneaking around in their closets).
But one thing we tried not to do was complain about it to our parents. Sometimes, new clothes just weren’t in the budget and we had to deal with wearing hand-me-down clothes. But you know who doesn’t have to worry about that?
These celebrity children.
While all normal kids understood the reality of wearing hand-me-down clothes, these particular celebrity parents never thought that their kids ever had to go through all that nonsense. Some of the time, these famous stars never had to see money as an issue, so buying brand new everything for their kids wasn’t really a big deal (even though the media sees it differently). Some might call these kids spoiled, but who really knows? When money isn’t an issue, anything is a go.
Here are 20 celebrities who want only the best for their children, which means absolutely no hand-me-down clothes.
20 "We Don't Do Hand-Me-Downs" Kim And Kanye State
I mean, did you really think that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West would make their kids suffer through wearing LAST YEAR’S FASHION LINE? If mom and dad don’t have to, why should the kids? They are expecting their fourth child (via a surrogate) and chances are that things won’t change much when it comes to number four.
“[Kim and Kanye] don’t really do hand-me-downs, so each baby is like their first,” a friend of the couple told People. “They’re buying everything they need for him, and Kanye insists they go top-of-the-line for everything. So they’ve been shopping.” Well, they certainly can afford it.
19 Same Goes For The Beckhams And Their Children
One really shouldn’t expect the children of an international superstar soccer player and a world-famous model/fashion icon to wear hand-me-downs if you think about it long enough. Both Victoria and David Beckham are the parents of four lovely children (sons Brooklyn Joseph, Romeo James, and Cruz David and daughter Harper Seven) who only wear the best of the best (which makes sense since their mom is a pillar in the fashion community).
And it’s not just clothes that show the Beckham children live the luxurious life: their parents had a custom designed redwood treehouse built on their property for the children.
18 Everyone Expected This From The Pitt-Jolie Kids
They are seriously one of the most famous families in the entire world. When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie became a couple, all eyes were on them and their growing family. Over the years, the Pitt-Jolie family has ballooned into one big, beautiful family, and while both Angelina and Brad have gone their separate ways, they still are amazing parents to their children.
And that includes buying top of the line EVERYTHING. More often than not, when the couple was together, they were seen taking all the kids on out-there shopping sprees and even threw some very elaborate themed birthday parties for the little ones.
17 Well, If He Already Has His Own Place As A Baby...
Elton John is never one to cut corners in order to be frugal. The words “frugal” and “Sir Elton John” don’t even mix together well, so it should come as a shock to no one that he and husband David Furnish only want the absolute best for their two sons, Zachary Jackson and Elijah Joseph.
Even before Zachary was born in 2010, the couple bought him HIS OWN APARTMENT. You read that right: he was a brand new homeowner even before he was born. If that happened to be the case, you think the couple would be fine with their sons wearing each other’s older, USED clothes? How about… no.
16 Sir And Rumi Don't See Any Of Blue Ivy's Old Clothes
Blue Ivy is one of the most famous faces in the world and the spotlight is all she’s ever known even before her birth. Early on in her childhood, Blue had received a diamond-encrusted Barbie doll (that was worth over $80 grand) and carried a Gucci bag worth 2k that matched her Gucci suit. So it’s easy to say that her she and her parents have expensive taste.
What does that mean for younger siblings Sir and Rumi? The twins are famous for being kept OUT of the public eye (except for a few adorable photos mom posts) so it would surprise everyone if it turns out that they wear any of Blue’s old stuff.
15 Christina Aguilera Won't Even Buy Her Kids Babies-R-Us
Christina Aguilera has arguably one of the best voices in the business and is considered high ranking in the music world. So are we gonna give her some slack for only wanting the best for her children? Well, maybe just a little.
After she split up with her ex-husband Jordan Bratman, she decided to toss all the toys Bratman had gotten their son from Toys R’ Us and expressed that toys from exclusive boutiques be allowed in her son’s presence. Now that she also has added a daughter to the mix, we can be positive that she’s spoiling both of them as much as she can, which, of course, means no hand-me-down ANYTHING for the two little ones.
14 What Would You Expect If Mariah Carey Was Your Mom?
Ah, the lovely Mariah Carey, a talented singer who can out-diva the best of those in her given profession. We were given a peek into her world when her reality show hit the waves a few years back, but we can actually never get enough of her. And her children with ex-hubby Nick Cannon simply adore her and it shows.
Mariah, in return, spoils them to no end. Do you know that the kids actually have a legit candy store in their home? That’s right–an entire room dedicated to satisfying their sweet tooth. This also means that they also get top of the line everything and one of a kind everything. Can’t have the children of one of the biggest superstars in the world wearing old clothes now, right?
13 No Hand-Me-Down Bling From P. Diddy
Sean “Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, whoever-he-is-now” Combs has never been shy about the fact that he believes he and his family only deserve the finer things in life. “I think it’s appropriate to give my kids whatever I want to give my kids,” the rapper told Nightline after he was criticized for buying his son a $360,000 Maybach on his 16th birthday. “I feel the way I raise my children, I don’t have to explain to you or anyone else, ‘cause nobody knows the way I raise my children.”
His kids have stated before that they receive extravagant, one-of-a-kind gifts from Dad, including top of the line jewelry that is in NO WAY a hand me down.
12 Kim Isn't The Only One Spoiling Her Kids In The Kardashian Inner Circle
Kourtney Kardashian takes pride in putting her children over every other priority in her life. She’s even known for openly criticizing sister Kim about how she jet sets here and there while leaving her kids with a slew of nannies at home. Kourtney has always been a very present and aware mother, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t spoil her children rotten. She is, in fact, still a Kardashian.
And when she’s not spoiling her kids, momma Kris certainly is. How do you know these kids don’t do hand-me-downs either? It’s known that Kris has taken her grandbabies out on sprees, including getting Mason a $3000 Baroque Print Padded Versace Coat. Whoa.
11 The Spoiling Is All Too True
If you’re already putting your baby in a customized Gucci bib, chances are you may be on the path to naysaying hand-me-down clothes. Yes, this is aimed at Khloe Kardashian who posted a picture of baby True Thompson on her IG wearing some pretty epic threads. People even noted that it looks like the bib matched Khloe’s handbag.
Khloe has gone on the record and has said that her parenting style matches Kim’s rather than Kourtney’s so this Gucci thing shouldn’t shock a viewer too much. This week alone has proven to be especially tough on Khloe, but she’ll always have her little one to get her through all the hardships she’s currently experiencing.
10 Only The Best For Kris Jenner's Littles (And Yes, We Already Knew That)
So Kris Jenner takes her grandchildren out on extravagant spending sprees, that we know. And something else we also know? That her children, especially Kylie and Kendall, basically got everything they wanted growing up. And how do we know this? We literally watched it happen before our eyes on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Could it be because Kris wanted to give her children everything she didn’t have when she was growing up? Possibly. And now she’s working on her grandchildren as well (as any great grandmother will do for their grandchildren) and we get to witness that, too, thanks to the magic of social media and television.
9 Even If She Had A Younger Sibling, You Think That Kid Would Get Any Of Suri Cruise’s Old Clothes?
The entire world was watching when Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise announced that Katie was going to have a baby and the delights at watching young Suri Cruise grow up in the public eye seem to be never-ending. But, the big question here? Is she spoiled?
Young Suri has been given the best of the best in the world and fashion designers even relish at the opportunity to dress her (she has a multi-million dollar wardrobe). “Whatever she wants to wear, she wears it,” Cruise once said to Oprah Winfrey when Suri was a mere preschooler. And now? Well, now she’s literally doing just that.
8 Even Though Gwen Stefani And Gavin Rossdale Are No Longer Together…
Man, when your own mother is calling herself AND her kids out on being spoiled in Hollywood these days, it’s actually quite refreshing. This is what rocker Gwen Stefani said about her own children a couple years back. When talking about the fact that her kids have two Christmases (one with her and boyfriend Blake Shelton and another with their father, Gavin Rossdale, Gwen admitted that her kids have some expensive taste.
“They’re so spoiled!” Gwen told People. “I don’t know what I’m going to do.” She then explained that her oldest son, Kingston, wanted Gucci and Goyard and put it on his Christmas list (he was 11 at the time).
7 Winning A Bunch Of Super Bowls And Bragging Rights Isn’t Enough For Tom Brady And Gisele Bundchen
He is quite possibly the most famous NFL quarterback in the world (who just recently won his sixth Super Bowl ring) and she one of the most recognized supermodels on the face of the planet, so do you think their kids get the hand-me-down treatment? Chances are–NO.
Tom Brady has three children (two with wife Gisele Bundchen and one with actress Bridget Moynahan) and if you peek at either his IG feed or his wife’s, you’ll know that they’re all about their beautiful family. Tom has openly admitted before that he tends to spoil Vivian since she’s his only daughter. “I let my daughter do basically anything she wants, which is a little bit of a problem in the house,” the QB once told EOnline.
6 Demi More And Bruce Willis Only Wanted The Best (And Only The Best) For Their Daughters
When you’re the three daughters of two international award-winning actors, you tend to get your way–especially if you were raised in the public eye. Both Demi Moore and Bruce Willis have three daughters (Rumer, who is an actress now herself, Scout, and Tallulah) who have been in the spotlight since Demi first announced that she was going to have a baby (remember that one controversial Vanity Fair cover?).
It seems that Demi and Bruce let the girls do whatever they wanted growing up and the ramifications split over into their adulthood. It was clear that the girls were spoiled by their parents in that they got whatever they wanted, which including the finest clothes possible (nope, no hand-me-downs here).
5 Catherine Zeta-Jones And Michael Douglas Raised Their Kids In The Lap Of Luxury
Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones and hubby Michael Douglas have been known to say that they raised their two children out of the spotlight in order to make sure they were more grounded growing up. And while both Carys and Dylan were brought up from the “crazy world of Hollywood,” they still have extraordinarily good taste in fashion.
You can see in the rare times that both teenagers walk the red carpet with their parents and if you take a look at Carys’ IG, you’ll see that if she happens to do the hand-me-down thing, it’s from vintage fashion perfection. You have to agree that both the kids have AMAZING taste in fashion.
4 Everyone Saw This Coming With Will Smith And Jada Pinkett Smith's Kids
If you follow any of the Smith children’s social media accounts, you know and understand just exactly how entitled they believe they are (even though their father is seemingly one of the most loveable actors in Hollywood). It got so bad that even the New York Post did an article on the kids and how spoiled they were.
Do you think these kids EVER wore anything that was even remotely vintage? Considering that Jaden is a spokesperson for Louis Vuitton, we think that most likely not. They are commonly seated near the runway during Fashion Week in Paris and tend to look down on anything that’s not super overpriced. Sigh.
3 No Skimping For Neil Patrick Harris And David Burtka's Children
Growing up, I had never heard of parents being super sad when their kids had to go back to school. Usually, children will have tuckered out their parents over the summer so when the new school year rolls around, most parents throw a parade to celebrate their own newfound independence. But not parents Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka, who mourn when their twins have to go back to school.
Not only do they love spending time with their kiddos, but they also pay bucket loads of cash for their twins to have extravagant spa days (at the Plaza, no less!). That really doesn’t sound like something hand-me-down parents tend to do.
2 Well, Tyrese Did Buy His Daughter Her Own Island
Okay, you’ve got to hand it to the Kardashians when it comes to their kiddos–they may buy them extravagant clothing and jewelry, but at least they have yet to buy them their own personal island. Actor Tyrese Gibson actually told Entertainment Tonight that he literally bought his young daughter Shayla an island. “Well, I bought my daughter an Island,” the actor said. “I can’t say (where).”
We kid a lot about the kids on this list growing up in the lap of luxury, but Tyrese is the only one who so far has gone above and beyond not wanting to have his children wear old clothes. An entire island? That’s one lucky girl.
1 And How Is Kylie Kardashian Faring With Stormi?
Even though she’s the newest member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan and the youngest, we know that Stormi will never want for anything in this life. Especially if her father, rapper Travis Scott, is already spoiling his little one non-stop. “He is a very hands-on dad and engaged,” an insider told Us magazine. “He spoils his daughter rotten and absolutely loves her to death and would do anything to make her life the best that it can be.”
Mama Kylie even threw an extravagant birthday for the baby girl while dad bought her a diamond necklace (with a lightning bolt design). If you think this little girl is gonna share some hand-me-downs with any possible future siblings, you’d be wrong.
