Growing up with famous parents sure does have its perks. Case in point: this list of celebrities who took their kids to an awards show! Forget the designer jeans and expensive cars that come with having a celebrity mom or dad, these lucky children got to walk the red carpet and rub elbows with the biggest stars on the planet.

From legendary actors and actresses to world famous musicians, plenty of proud parents have brought their kids as their dates. What better place to show off their gorgeous, talented progenies! They may be huge stars, but they’re still parents at heart, which means they love a chance to spend time with their babies. If that happens to be at the Academy Awards or Grammys, so be it! Some of these celebrity kids are famous in their own right, while others may just grow up to be as famous as their mother or father.

Madonna may be one of the most famous moms to bring her kid to an awards show. She brought her son David to the 2014 Grammy Awards. Tina Fey brought her daughter Alice to the 2014 SAG Awards. Cate Blanchett brought her son Ignatius to the 2014 Critic's Choice Awards.

Hard working famous dads with kids also love snagging a little bonding time. Jamie Foxx took his daughter, Corinne, to several awards shows and red carpet events including the 2014 Academy Awards. During the 2014 awards season, Bruce Dern brought his grown-up daughter, actress Laura Dern, to several ceremonies.

Your parents will never be this cool, and these photos of celebrity parents with their kids proves it. Love seeing famous families walk the red carpet together? Check out this list of celebs who brought their siblings to an awards show!
