With their plump cheeks and big bright eyes, almost every toddler is cute, cuddly and just ‘aww’-worthy. But clearly not adorable enough like Sire Jackson, 50-Cent’s 3-year-old son, who landed one of the biggest baby modelling jobs around – a gig that many Talent Management models aspire to.
During a dialogue with Angie Martinez via the 105.1 FM radio show The Breakfast Club, Curtis James Jackson III (50-Cent’s name in real life), revealed his son is so uber cute that he was chosen to be the new face of Kidz Safe.
‘He’s got a deal now with Kidz Safe; it’s an audio company. They paid him a big payment, too. He’ll get $700,000 to be the face of the company. Already, he’s making his own money,’ said 50-Cent.
But the ‘In Da Club’ rapper isn’t going to allow his mini-me to waste all his hard-earned dough on toys and candies. He explained Sire won’t be able to touch any of his money until he turns 18. 50-Cent added, ‘I was ready to say, “This is your college fund.” But I gotta handle that part and let him have the [$700,000].’
Looks like Sire tested his modelling skills right away at the Isabella Couture fashion show last 10 March in Los Angeles, CA. However, the cute, curly-haired tot, who wore an elegant suit, was overwhelmed with stage fright. Her model mum, 50-Cent’s ex, Daphne Joy, had to carry him down the runway.
Daphne posted on her Instagram, ‘My son got cold feet at the last minute so mommy had to walk him. He was the youngest model in the show and he handled it well until the last moment!’
Although, Sire is just 3-years-old, he’s obviously following his Grammy Award-winning dad. And because 50-Cent is a business-minded celebrity, we can already imagine that a big future is guaranteed for little Sire.
Other notable baby models are:
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby daughter, North West. She was just 13-months old when she started modelling last year. Looking dapper in a knitted sweater and with a quilted bag (by Chanel) resting against her tiny legs, she made her baby modelling debut in CR Fashion Book.
Kim confesses that North West is very much a camera lover like her—an undoubtedly Kardashian character. During an interview on Watch What Happens Live, Kim lovingly said, ‘When she’s aware there’s a camera she does this pose face – like this serious, like, duck lips and stare, it’s so cute’.
And there’s 7-year-old Anja Louise Ambrosio Mazur, Alessandra Ambrosio’s daughter. The Victoria Secret Angel’s baby doll started modelling at the age of four. She posed like a pro alongside her mum during a London Fog ad campaign.
Alessandra admitted that Anja had a lot of fun doing the campaign, ‘Having my daughter steal the spotlight is pretty funny and I just love it! I’m so proud of her. She had a great time on set and is going to be wearing all of the London Fog kids’ jackets.’ Just recently, Alessandra posted an Instagram photo of Anja practicing her posing skills with the Bad Blood singer, Taylor Swift.
Hudson Kroenig, on the other hand, began modelling at 2-years-old in 2010. During his 5-year baby modelling career, the Chanel model has already strutted on catwalks from Seoul to Salzberg. In fact, Hudson has a closet full of custom-made Chanel outfits (and shoes) from all the modelling shows he attended. He has modelled alongside with the likes of Pharrell Williams and Cara Delevinge. This 7-year-old gorgeous little man obviously got his genes from his handsome model dad, Brad Kroenig, who has also modelled for Chanel and Fendi.
Last but definitely not the least is Dannielynn Birkhead, Anna Nicole Smith and Larry Birkhead’s daughter. Dannielynn started modelling for Guess Kids at the age of six. She was the face of Guess Girl’s Spring 2013 collection. Her deceased mum also used to be a Guess model. According to Paul Marciano, the co-founder of the clothing company, ‘Dannielynn has the same playful spirit that her mother had on a set.’ Now 9-years-old and with a net worth of US$ 10 million, Dannielynn has appeared on different TV shows and entertainment news.
