When you're rich and famous, there's a reason why you tend to flock to birds of your own feather. Celebrities in Hollywood go through the trials and tribulations of constantly being in the public eye, never having a moment of normalcy. Because of this, it can be a bit hard to relate to average, everyday people. Although some celebrities do try and maintain relationships with their childhood friends, most form a new A-list squad, a core group of celebrity pals that hang out together and keep each other sane. We love to watch these celebrity besties together, from Taylor Swift's elaborate girl squad to the hilarious duo that is Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence.
When the time comes to have kids, it only makes sense to have your little ones hang out with your closest friends, too. It can definitely be hard to relate to other kids at school when your parents are A-listers, so tykes of the elite tend to run around with those brought up similarly to them. What's even cuter is if a celebrity duo is already pals, they'll start their kids off young with playdates, grooming them into becoming BFFs in their own right, too.
We've rounded up a list of 30 celebrity kids who are actually best friends in real life with some who are still very young to some slightly older pairs who've grown up in the limelight together!
Starting off this list is obvious celebrity BFFs and cousins Penelope Disick and North West. Daughters of Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, these two are almost inseparable.
Friends since birth, the adorable duo has grown up together and is usually seen in matching outfits, too.
With Kim and Kourtney constantly snapping videos of their girls hanging out, fans across the world can't help but audibly, "aww," since a cuter cousin and BFF duo doesn't exist.
Little North West has been spotted hanging out with a new BFF in most of Kim Kardashian's snaps and Instagram posts. People have been wondering who the equally adorable tot is. It's none other than Ryan Romulus, daughter of Tracy Nguyen Romulus, who has been Kim and Kanye's long-term friend for more than 15 years, as per Daily Mail.
Kanye's former publicist is now spearheading Kim's KKW label, so the two are close, but it turns out little North and Ryan are even closer, becoming practically inseparable.
The coolest Aussies in Hollywood, Cate Blanchett and Hugh Jackman's kids' friendships are squad goals. Cate has a little girl and three boys, while Hugh Jackman has one of each, a boy and a girl. Considering they're both far from home, these two celebrities obviously connected and made sure their kids did too.
Together, they formed the ultimate Australian celebrity kid squad.
All of them frequently hang out together, as seen in the infamous photo above, where they all got into a snowball fight led by Hugh Jackman in the middle of New York.
Can you imagine a more hilarious playdate than one involving both Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore? The two A-list celebrities have been friends for years, with Huffington Post reporting that the duo got close while they were filming "Fever Pitch" back in 2005.
It was Drew who actually introduced Jimmy to his future wife, as she's actually her best friend and business partner! Naturally, when they had kids, it only seemed obvious to have playdates together. Jimmy's Winnie Rose and Frances Cole and Drew's Olive and Frankie often hang out, with their celebrity parents snapping adorable photos of them all.

The mamas are known to show off their cute boys playing together on social media, including a super cute video of the duo chatting on a trampoline and proceeding to hug it out together. Aw!
Here's one that'll throw you for a loop: Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyoncé are BFFs. In what's probably the most unexpected friendship in all of Hollywood, the duo met in the early 2000s and as per Nicki Swift, resulted in multiple memorable appearances at their husbands' respective concerts, as well as the 2007 Oscars.
Fans were floored, but it wasn't until Gwyneth posted a photo of her daughter Apple and Blue Ivy hanging out backstage at the Super Bowl that the world found out their two girls were joined at the hip. They've shared multiple more photos since, and we love that this unlikely duo is so close!
A bit of an older duo to hit this list is Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris Jackson, and Bella Hadid, who have gotten close since Paris hit the modeling scene in 2017.
The duo first made their public appearance in a social media post during Fashion Week in January of 2017.
According to Nicki Swift, they were later snapped in an infamous "bad girls" bathroom photo with Paris Jackson, Ruby Rose, Bella Hadid, and Lara Stone at the Met Gala. Since then, Paris has been a part of the cool model clique, and in particular, Bella's BFF.
The cutest families to embark on joint vacations together is that of Neil Patrick Harris and Elton John as the duo are BFFs, too. From glamorous family vacations together to Hawaii to trips to the Oscars with their dads, both families are always having a blast.

As per The Sun, Mariah Carey's $13 million Bel Air mansion is close to the Carters, so the trio shares frequent playdates. It only makes sense, since they're all raised in the similar elaborate lifestyle.
Chicago West and True Thompson, daughters of Kim Kardashian West and Khloe Kardashian, are BFFs in the making, as the two are still very young.
