18. Miley Cyrus

Of course, any famous parent/famous child list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Miley and her father Billy Ray Cyrus. Billy Ray was a country music megastar back in the 90’s. In 1992, he released his first album, ‘Some Gave All’ debuted at No. 1 on the billboard 200 charts and his career skyrocketed ever since then. He is probably best known for the hit single, ‘Achy Breaky Heart’ that was featured in that first debut album.

In 2006, Billy Ray decided to star in a Disney series with his daughter Miley called ‘Hannah Montana’. It was there that Miley, who was only 13 at the time, gained worldwide fame. In 2008, Disney decided to make a Hannah Montana movie and during it’s opening weekend in 2009, it was the number 1 movie at the box office, earning $32.3 million. The film earned $155 million worldwide which put Miley Cyrus into superstar status. She is reportedly worth $160 million and a lot of it is thanks to her superstar father Billy Ray.
