Top 10 Richest Kids in the World

Meet the golden youth! These kids begin their lives with a nice sum of money.

Welcome to, and today we are counting down our picks for the top ten richest kids in the world.

For this list, we’ll be looking at the net-worth of wealthy youngsters between the ages of 9 and 22 years old. They could be actors, models, entrepreneurs or famous for any other reason under the sun.

#10: Isabella Barrett

$2 Million
At 11 years old, Isabella is already a multimillionaire. This former mini-pageant star is now a businesswoman who owns her own jewelry and clothing line. She became famous thanks to the reality TV show “Toddlers and Tiaras,” a controversial show about 6 year old pageant stars. Famous for her Barbie-like mannerisms and provocative nature, she is the proud owner of 60 pairs of shoes. Her mother takes care of her business affairs. Is her popularity short-lived or long lasting? Only time will tell. But for now, her $2 million are quite real.

#9: Jaylen Bedsoe

$3.5 Million
This 19 year old is the CEO of a company that’s already worth $3.5 million. While most teenagers his age are busy partying, hitting on girls and testing their limits… Jaylen decided to build his own technology company called “Bledsoe Technologies,” at the age of 13. With the support and guidance of his family, Jaylen invests his money into his enterprise and gives entrepreneurial conferences in universities. Jaylen skipped the adolescent phase and jumped straight into adulthood.

#8: Asa Butterfield

$5.5 Million
Asa Butterfield is a 20 year old English actor who landed his first role in the movie The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. But, this young Englishman is mostly known for his lead role in Martin Scorsese’s film, Hugo. Apparently, when his mother told him that he would be playing Hugo, he didn’t even know who Scorsese was! His career has continued to skyrocket as he has also starred in “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” and “The Space Between Us.”

#7: Elle Fanning

$5.5 Million
If her name rings a bell, it’s probably thanks to her famous sister: Dakota Fanning. In fact, at just 18 months, Elle played a younger Dakota in the movie “I Am Sam”! Success does run in this family. In 2010, Sofia Coppola gave Elle her first role in her movie “Somewhere”, a movie about the psychological hardships thanks to finding sudden fame, and finding your place in life.

#6: Rico Rodriguez

$4 Million
Famous for his role in the TV show Modern Family, American actor Rico Rodriguez is rolling in the dough. The overwhelming success of the sitcom, and his too-mature-for-his-age character allowed him to build his great fortune. Not to mention that he got to work with the beautiful Sofia Vergara! That’s great fortune in itself… He hasn’t landed any other roles so far, but at only 18 years old, there’s still plenty of time for that, as well as enjoying his wealth of cash!

#5: Jaden Smith

$8.8 Million
Will Smith’s son Jaden, is following in his dad’s footsteps. This actor, dancer and rapper is a real jack-of- all-trades in the artistic community of Hollywood. We first caught a glimpse of his acting chops in “The Pursuit of Happiness,” where he stars alongside his father. He then starred in “The Karate Kid” with Jackie Chan. His mother and father’s connections in the movie scene undoubtedly helped him, but nonetheless, kudos for jumping on those opportunities.

#4: Dannielynn Birkhead

$10.8 Million
At just 11 years old, Dannielynn is already a supermodel for Guess, but she is mostly famous for her sad story. Her mother, Anna Nicole Smith, was a Playboy model and the wife of a very wealthy oil tycoon. When he died, a battle between Anna Nicole and the billionaire’s son exploded. No surprises there, as there was $1.4 billion in play! Anna Nicole died not too long after, and Dannielynn did not receive anything from the billionaire’s fortune. But her mother didn't leave her empty handed as she inherited around $10 million.

#3: Abigail Breslin

$13 Million
This American actress began her career at the age of 3. She made her debut in the movie Signs, in which she starred with Mel Gibson. But, she’s particularly famous for her role in the comedy Little Miss Sunshine where she played Olive Hoover, a charming little girl who participated in beauty pageants. This 21 year old is now all grown up, and is thriving in her career as an actress. I guess some child actors really can carry on the fame.

#2: Chloë Grace Moretz

$13 Million
This American model and actress’ angelic face does not go unnoticed. First appearing in the movie Kick-Ass as Hit-Girl, she shocked everyone with her violence and harsh language. Her movie resumé rapidly grew, and she’s now a bonafide box office star. It’s hard to believe that at just 20 years old, she’s already starred in 42 movies… way to make us all look lazy! She’s also an outspoken, strong, young woman, supporting equal rights for the LGBT community and unafraid of identifying herself as a feminist!

Before we reveal the richest youngster in the world, here are a couple honourable mentions:

Zendaya – 21 years old
$5 Million

Bella Thorne - 20 years old
$4 Million

#1: Nick D’Aloisio

$32 Million
Our top pick is a genius. At only 15 years old, this British entrepreneur created the Summly code: an app that allows you to summarize texts online. One year later, he sold his app to Yahoo for $32 million. He is now the product manager of Yahoo’s mobile segment. This young man who did computer programming for fun became the youngest and richest entrepreneur in the world. Well done, Nick!
