18. Alison Williams and Brian Williams

Alison Williams rocketed to fame as Marnie on Girls and later made a splash as the conniving love interest in the movie Get Out. But many might not realize that her dad is journalist Brian Williams. He was a darling of NBC nightly news for many years, until he was caught in a scandal where he fudged details on a war report. Alison stood by her dad’s side throughout the whole embarrassing ordeal, and Williams is now making a comeback as host of MSNBC’s The 11th Hour.

17. Bryce Dallas Howard and Ron Howard

Ron Howard got his big start on Happy Days, although he is now best known as the director of blockbusters such as Apollo 13. Daughter Bryce Dallas has clearly also caught the showbiz bug and recently made a splash in the blockbuster Jurassic World.

16. Enrique Iglesias and Julio Iglesias

Enrique Iglesias has been a heartthrob singer for many a year now, with hits such as “Hero” and “Escape” becoming pop anthems. But did you know his father is actually an even bigger star? His dad Julio is in fact the best-selling Latin music artist in history. Unfortunately, their love of music did not bring father and son closer, and their relationship is strained. So strained that Dad has reportedly never met Enrique’s longtime love, Anna Kournikova.
