Celebrity Kids You Didn’t Realize Are All Grown Up

Chaz Bono

Born Chastity Sun Bono, but now going by the name of Chaz Salvatore Bono, Chaz is the only child of the pop duo Cher and Sonny Bono. His parents were a famous dynamic duo of the 60s and 70s. Like his parents, Chaz became a musician, actor, and was also able to inherit his father’s writing skills. Chaz became popularly known for his activism, where he advocates for social rights in the US through his writings.

For most of Chaz’s activism, he was identified as a woman. However, after going through a transition in 1998, he published the book Family Outing: A Guide to the Coming Out Process for Gays, Lesbians, and Their Families. It was only in 2010 when he finally changed his name and identity to legally become male. The books and writings he wrote thereafter are now credited to his new name.
