Parade Magazine Reveals How Much Celeb Parents Earn (Photos)

How much do your favorite celebrity parents earn? No surprise here – a lot.

This weekend, Parade Magazine published its annual “What People Earn” job survey issue, in which Americans from a wide variety of fields open up about their salaries. (A part-time clown from Kansas takes home just $2,500; an upstate New York bridal shop owner brings in $250,000.)

The magazine also reveals the estimated salaries of a number of popular celebrities, which add up to a tidy sum. But before you start playing the envy game, remember that big paychecks also mean big taxes. Celebs also have expenses we don’t have to worry about: agents, publicists, stylists, drivers, plus household help and nannies and tutors for their children.

Here, from the magazine’s list, are some very well-known parents of young children (plus one extremely well-known young child!). Do A-list actors earn more than pro athletes? Where does a certain Oscar-winning singer fall in the rankings? Read on!
