Madonna, Cindy Crawford and Laura Dern are all raising models-to-be.

These icons had a child (or two) walk the runway at New York Fashion Week this month for designers like Gypsy Sport and Prabal Gurung. Dern even attended front row at Calvin Klein to cheer her son on as he made his Fashion Week debut (she also has a 13-year-old daughter, Jaya Harper). 

After returning from NYFW, Crawford told The Hollywood Reporter about watching her children model: "It's funny for me to kind of re-enter that world, but in a different role, and fun for me to watch them launching, especially Kaia. Of course, Presley's just more like a dude. He's like 'whatever,' but Kaia loves it and is just exploding and she's got a head on her shoulders."

Other stars whose children model include Steven Spielberg, Mel Gibson and the late Michael Jackson, whose daughter Paris was seated in Jeremy Scott's front row next to rapper Cardi B, though she didn't model this time. Models Sofia Richie (Lionel Richie), Kendall Jenner (Kris and Caitlyn Jenner) and Brandon Lee (Pamela Anderson) all have famous parents as well.

  • Anwar Hadid

    The young Hadid brother is getting into the family biz, following his older sisters, supermodels Gigi and Bella Hadid. All three are the children of real estate developer Mohamed Hadid. For this NYFW, Anwar walked the Prabal Gurung runway. Previously, he's modeled in David Jones' Spring Summer 18 Collections launch at Fox Studios and Tommy Hilfiger's TOMMYNOW Fall 2017 show during London Fashion Week.

  • Lourdes Leon

    Madonna's 21-year-old daughter Lourdes Leon bared all in a seminude outfit for the Gypsy Sport runway. She wore ripped baggy jeans, a shell bralette and a green feather headpiece in the tropical-inspired spring collection. 

  • Ellery Walker Harper

    Ellery Walker Harper, 17, made his Fashion Week debut by appearing at the Calvin Klein show. His mom, Big Little Lies star Laura Dern, watched from the front row, alongside Tiffany Haddish, Jake Gyllenhaal and Saoirse Ronan. Dern wrote on Instagram, "Always a privilege to witness Raf Simons’ genius for Calvin Klein especially when I am the proudest mama witnessing my son walk for him."

  • Kaia Gerber

    Like mother, like daughter: Cindy Crawford's child, Kaia Gerber, walked for Tom Ford, Anna Sui and R13 at NYFW. The 17-year-old budding fashionista recently celebrated the launch of her Karl x Kaia capsule collection with Karl Lagerfeld by Revolve. 

  • Presley Gerber

    Cindy Crawford's son also took to the runway, modelling for Prabal Gurung and Sies Marjan. She posted that it was "so fun seeing these two sharing the runway at @siesmarjan #proudmama" of both her children walking in the NYFW show.
