There are many celebrity fathers who have adopted children. Here’s a look at these celebrities.
Tom Cruise adopted two children with former spouse Nicole Kidman. First they adopted a two-month-old girl named Isabella Jane in 1993 and then they adopted a 2-week-old son named Conner Anthony in 1995. Unfortunately, the happy family didn’t last long because Tom and Nicole got divorced in 2001 and both children decided to live with Tom instead of Nicole. There have been constant rumors over the years saying that both children do not have any contact with Nicole, but these rumors have since been proved to be false. The real story is just that Nicole now has a family of her own with Keith Urban. Isabella and Conner are now much older and don’t see Nicole as much but they still consider her to be their mother. It comes with the celebrity. Unfortunately, Nicole hasn’t been able to see her adopted children as much, but Tom makes sure to be around for his children whenever he is needed. Tom Cruise just recently made headlines because he attended three premieres within 24 hours for his new movie “Edge of Tomorrow.”
Unfortunately Hugh Jackman’s story wasn’t so happy to start. He and his wife tried to have children but his wife ended up having two miscarriages. Instead of trying again they decided to adopt two children. Their children are named Oscar Maximillian and Ava Eliot. Oscar is 5 years older than Ava. Ava was born on July 10th in 2005. Hugh Jackman has been recently in the spotlight again for two different reasons. One is for his newly released movie “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and also for his bout with skin cancer. Jackman has been warning people to wear sunscreen and hopefully his kids will also get the message as well.
Certainly one of the most wealthiest celebrities to have adopted children with an estimated worth of $3.3 billion is Steven Spielberg. Spielberg’s family is mixed with biological and adopted children. Of his seven children two of them are adopted. His wife, Kate Capshaw, first adopted Theo before she married Spielberg but later Spielberg officially adopted him as well. Later together they both adopted Mikaela George who was born on February 28, 1996. Spielberg is one of the most famous movie directors of all time. It’s great that he decided to adopt even though he already had children of his own.
