We often fail to remember that our favourite celebrities are just as human as we are. It's therefore always really nice when our faves share snippets and bits of their families or personal lives which make us relate to them even more. 

Today we take a look at who birthed some of our favourite celebrities and realize that for a lot of them the apple truly doesn't fall too far from the tree.

William Last KRM

This comedian always has us bursting into laughter. He has moved from making small cute skits to being a legitimate comedian and musician. Apart from the cute videos he takes with his daughter, William doesn't share much more about his personal life.

However, last year on mothers day he took to his Instagram to share a touching photo of him and his mother which melted the hearts of many.

Lesedi Matsunyane 

Lesedi is the true definition of the phrase "the apple does not fall far from the tree". She is the daughter of media mogul Connie Ferguson and Neo Matsunyane best known for his role in generations alongside his ex-wife.

Although her parents have been divorced for years now they all maintain a healthy relationship with one another. Lesedi has also taken after her parents by pursuing a career on screen. 


The musician and comedian, who has over 120k Instagram followers, often keeps his private life away from social media, however, every now and then, he shares a bit about his family with his fans.


The multi talented, rapper, presenter and entrepreneur is plain obsessed with her mother and it's no secret the two are like peas in a pod, sticking by each other no matter what. She recently attended Boity’s 31st birthday. Boity also threw her mum arguably the best 50th birthday bash mzansi has seen.

DJ Fresh

DJ Fresh is a Botswana native who has called South Africa home for several years. Most people know that DJ fresh started Dj-ing at the tender age of 13 and thereafter went on to host a radio show at 19. What a lot of people don't know is that DJ Fresh clashed heads with his father who wanted DJ Fresh to go to law school.

He was hell-bent on pursuing music instead which ended up working out for him. He recently posted a throwback picture of him and his family.

Kelebogile Mogano 

Kelebogile is one of the country's most loved media personalities. Being one of the biggest online influencers, she has made serious moves securing lucrative sponsorships and partnerships.

A while back she took to her Instagram stories to document an outdoor trip she took with her father. Among some of the pictures she took was a beautiful selfie of her and her dad, adding the text “ I've never seen a love like this before, my first ever love papa”. 

This picture was adorable and melted the hearts of her followers. Kelebogile like many girls out there she is definitely a daddy’s girl.

We love watching these celebs show us bits of their family and their personal lives and hope they continue opening up more to us.
