Throughout the years, the local showbiz scene has produced so many icons in various fields such as acting and music. But these next-generation kids are now taking the center stage and claiming their time to shine. Curious about the children of showbiz personalities? From budding entrepreneurs to rising actors, here are a few celebrity children you should know about:

Callie Ahmee

You might know Callie's mom as the ever fierce Daniela Mondragon-Bartolome on Kadenang Ginto. Instead of trying out acting, Callie instead channels her mom's entrepreneurial chops by starting her own proudly homegrown clothing brand called Cal. Aside from being a businesswoman, Cal also has a YouTube channel where she shares more about her artistic pursuits and personal life.

Jayda Avanzado

As the only child of OPM icons Jessa Zaragoza and Dingdong Avanzado, it isn't a surprise to see that Jayda grew up to become a powerhouse singer as well. Aside from being a singer-songwriter, Jayda also knows how to play instruments. The 18-year-old has already performed as an opening act for various international artists, including Niall Horan, The Vamps, Before You Exit, and The Tide.
