Being the child of a celebrity can be tough, as the limelight tends to follow you wherever you go. So you can imagine that being Michael Jackson‘s kid is really difficult. Prince Michael, Paris, and Blanket Jackson have found a way to get some privacy in public, though: they volunteer at a Los Angeles homeless center!
The three Jackson children have been putting in time at the Sydney M. Irmas Transitional Living Center, which helps homeless individuals and families transition off the streets and into a new home. The real upside for the kids, though, is that most of the residents don’t recognize them.
On “Good Morning America,” Robin Roberts told a story about just how incognito the children of one of the most famous celebrities that ever lived are: apparently Paris was carrying Michael’s book Never Can Say Goodbye when “a young resident there was looking at it and said, ‘Wow, Michael Jackson. Did you know Michael Jackson?’ Didn’t even realize that it was his daughter, and that’s the way they like it.”
The children, the eldest of whom are only in their early teens, are incredibly charitable and thoughtful for their age: they have stated that they want the 2,800-acre Neverland Ranch to one day be home to a center for animals. It’s rare to see the children of celebrities turn out to be well-adjusted, and it’s all the better to see these kids turn out so well considering Michael’s turbulent life.
Just don’t blow their cover, okay?
