Lionel Richie's son is ridiculously hot and the internet is struggling to cope

It's a fact that talent is genetic, and these days many dynasties of celebrities are formed from famous families. Just take the case of legendary Hollywood actor Kirk Douglas (star of Spartacus) and his son Michael Douglas who became a famous and acclaimed actor in his own right, or Donald Sutherland, whose son Kiefer Sutherland is now just as famous as his dad was. But now the internet has discovered that a certain other celebrity has a kid who's all grown up now, and if the reactions of social media users are anything to go by, he's a bit of a heartthrob.

Lionel Richie is one of the most popular musicians ever, and even now that he's in his 60s, he can still blow younger artists off the stage when he performs. If you want proof of this, then consider the fact that he was the number one act at the 2015 Glastonbury music festival in England. That's some heavy-duty credentials. But it turns out that this whole time he's had a super-hot son; 24-year-old model Miles Brockman Richie, who has definitely inherited his dad's good genetics.

Miles made his runway debut at Philipp Plein's fashion show in Brooklyn during New York's fashion week in February, which has brought him to the attention of the press and the tabloids big-time. Miles is apparently well-known on Instagram for his effortless sense of style, muscular physique, and tattoos. Indeed, Miles seems to be something of an inking enthusiast and has shared pictures of the names of his father, sister, and mother tattooed on his body, as well as a large image of the Buddha on his back.

Miles is also famous for having previously dated Kylie Jenner. Their relationship was brief but passionate, lasting just two months back in 2015. Miles was so enamoured with Kylie that he shared a video of her tattooing her initials on his arm, and the pair were photographed by the paparazzi smooching in Miles' Mercedez Benz. The couple allegedly split up due to the four-year age difference between them, and since then Miles has been romantically attached to Australian model and swimwear designer Sahara Ray.

Commenting on one of his recent shirtless pics, a fan on Instagram wrote: "Hot damn! Lionel Richie sure does make good-looking people. 🔥👍🏻" while another added: "This is what my dream man looks like.. just sayin, if you find him let me know thanks xoxo 🤷🏻‍♀️🐶 [sic]." Someone else also chimed in: "Have I told you you’re cute? Cause you are damn cute."

So there you have it: Lionel Ritchie's offspring are just as talented as their old man is. That dude really is a very lucky dad. Keep your eyes on Miles in the future, I have a feeling he's going to become a lot more famous now that we all know about him, don't you?
