Actress and producer Rita Wilson starred in prominent rom-coms in the ‘90s, including “Sleepless in Seattle” in 1993 and “Runaway Bride” in 1999. She married famed actor Tom Hanks and is the stepmother of the 40-year-old actor Colin Hanks. In 2014, Colin received Critics' Choice Television Awards, Emmy, and Golden Globe nominations for his role in FX’s series “Fargo.” Wilson and Colin appear to have a close relationship—Wilson often teases her husband, Colin’s father, if father and son’s work is in competition.

Others, however, may come as more of a surprise as some celebrities are more secretive when it comes to their star-studded lineage.

Read on for 35 mother-daughter combos that have achieved fame in their own right.
