Celebrities who brought their kids to the red carpet
While some celebrity parents prefer to hide their kids from the flashing lights of cameras and the inquisitive gazes of the media, others seem to have not only accepted but also embraced the reality that their entire family is going to be famous in some way, shape, or form. Perhaps that's why many stars bring their children to the red carpet, or perhaps it's because they make the absolute cutest dates! Matt Damon brought nearly his whole family to the premiere of 'Air,' including his wife Luciana Barroso and their three daughters, Isabella, 16, Gia, 14, and Stella, 12. Barroso also has another daughter from a previous marriage, Alexia, 24, whom Damon counts as his own. The film is a biopic about the former Nike executive Sonny Vaccaro, played by Damon, and the quest to sign rising basketball superstar Michael Jordan to the shoe company in the mid-'80s.
