    These Famous, Non-Nepo Baby Siblings Prove That Sometimes, Genes Are Stronger Than Money

    This is a nepo baby-free zone, people.

    If you've so much as opened a social media app in the last two years, you will have heard of nepo-baby discourse. The term refers to the celebrity children of famous and well-connected (usually wealthy) parents – and like it or not, there sure are a lot of them in Hollywood.

    So it makes sense that in families that include more than one famous child, rich and famous family members are the norm (think Gigi and Bella Hadid, the Kardashian family, Kate and Oliver Hudson...I could go on).

    Which makes it even more remarkable when multiple siblings do well *without* industry parents. We found 12 celeb brothers and sisters who prove that sometimes, the talent not only runs in the genes, but also against the nepo baby trend:
