Lionel and Nicole Richie
Genetics don't count for everything in father-daughter relationships. Lionel Richie assumed guardianship of Nicole Camille Escovedo shortly after she was born, and legally adopted her when she was 9 years old.
Paul and Stella McCartney
Stella McCartney channeled her family's creative impulses into fashion. Her father, Beatle Paul McCartney, encouraged those aspirations, hooking Stella up with an internship at his Savile Row tailor when she was at university, and penning the song "Stella May Day" for her graduate fashion show at London's Central Saint Martins. She got by with a little help from her friends, too: Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell modeled in the show, for free. Of course, all that early faith paid off as Stella went on to prove she has two things that seem to elude most celebrity spawn: talent and staying power.
Donald and Ivanka Trump
Ivanka Trump made a rather more graceful entrée into the family biz. After graduating from the Wharton School of Business, Ivanka joined the Trump Organization as its executive vice president of development and acquisitions. She also seconds her dad on The Apprentice, where she's proven a poised and levelheaded counterpoint to her legendarily loudmouthed pop.
Sting and Coco Sumner
Many musician daughters have taken their own crack at the microphone. Erstwhile model Coco Sumner, daughter of Sting and Trudie Styler, heads up the band I Blame Coco, whose debut album comes out this year. Not that the 19-year-old wants to be known only as Sting's kid: One of her early songs, called "My Name Is a Stain," includes the lyrics, "Forget my dad, you need to hear my band."
Lenny and Zoë Kravitz
Daughters do bring out the sentimental in their paterfamilias. Take Lenny Kravitz, for example. When his ex-wife, Lisa Bonet, gave birth to the couple's only child, Kravitz wrote "Flowers for Zoë" for his baby daughter. The song goes: "Flowers for Zoë, love for Zoë, angels and rainbows, all kinds of things you can call your own…" Awww.
