It's a norm of the modern world for fans to follow their favourite celebrities on social media, especially on Instagram. However, since most of these celebs have gone on to build happy families, blessed with adorable children, it's evident that it's not just their good looks that they've handed down to their offspring. Thanks to the parents' popularity, these kids have also become mini celebs with their own fans and followers.
Some of these cuties have grown so popular that they've even been hired as ambassadors or models for food and fashion brands. Some have also received acting offers despite their young age – the apple doesn't fall far from the (actors') tree after all. Let's take a look at the list below of the Instafamous kids of Malaysian celebs!
Aaisyah Dhia Rana
Who doesn't know this cute daughter of actress Rozita Che Wan, or better known as Che Ta, and actor Zain Saidin? Aaisyah Dhia Rana is very fluent in speaking in the Northern dialect. Despite being only six years of age, little Aaisyah is already a fashionista and has modelled for various fashion brands. Her fans on Instagram, which currently has a following 1.5 million strong, often praise the pretty little girl who likes to dress up and accessorize like her mother. In fact, in the family vacay photos she shared online, she could be seen wearing makeup too.
How time flies, Awal Ashaari and Scha Alyahya's daughter Lara Alana is already a six-year-old now! Even though still young, it is apparent that Lara's personality is a lot like her mother's. Not only is she a fashionable cutie, she also adapts well when around her friends and non-family members. Enrolled in an international school since the tender age of 18 months, Lara speaks fluent English with her family, friends and nanny.
In 2016, a TV show called "Lara Oh Lara" was aired, which followed the daily life of the titular cutie. Lara, who has 4.1 million followers on Instagram, was previously named Popular Social Media Personality at the 29th Anugerah Bintang Popular Berita Harian. Soon, Lara will take on the role of big sister as mommy Scha is now pregnant!
Yusuf Iskandar & Alisa Aisyah
Yusuf Iskandar, son of Hairul Azreen and Hanis Zalikha, is growing up well. As shared by Hanis, since a young age, Yusuf is already taught daily etiquette and given proper education such as reading picture books, playing with shapes and eating with fork and spoon.
In 2016, the show "Hairul & Hanis Junior" was aired, showing the daily life of Yusuf, who now has 2.8 million Instagram followers. H'es also won the Anugerah MeleTOP Era 2017 award in the category Si Cilik MeleTOP. Yusuf is able to speak fluent English with the people around him, including his little sister Alisa Aisyah.
Since birth, Alisa attracted everyone's attention with her own cuteness, much like her brother. Her doll-like curly eyelashes often melt fans' hearts, along with her adorable antics, which are often shared on her own Instagram with its 1.1 million-strong followers. Just a year old, Alisa likes to tease her mother with cute antics, especially using the word "tadaa", leading her to be dubbed as 'Si Tada' (Little Tada) .
Aqeef Anaqi & Ayra Aryssa
Aqeef Anaqi and Ayra Aryssa's existence truly brightened up the lives of their parents Amyra Rosli adn Amar Baharin. Following in his parents' footsteps, Anaqi is often picked to model for the fashion brand PrimaValet each time Hari Raya Aidilfitri rolls around. Apart from that, his diligence in helping his parents clean their house and his activeness in recreational activities often attracts fans' attention on Instagram, on which he has more than 717 thousand followers.
Meanwhile, a few months before Aryssa's birth, Amyra held a gender-reveal baby shower. At the time, the baby's gender was unknown to Amar. Now six months old, Aryssa has her own Instagram with more than 145 thousand followers. The little cutie can often be seen smiling, like her mother.
Attar, Hayla & Aya Soffya
It's not surprising that romantic couple Wawa Zainal and Aeril Zafril would give such beautiful names to their babies: Ahmad Fakhruddin Attar and Hayla Maghfirahtul Adzkiyaa. Previously, Wawa expressed her concern when her now 7-year-old firstborn suffered from speech delay due to prolonged gadget exposure. But eventually, Attar has begun to show improvement after attending speech therapy.
Hayla, meanwhile, often attracts attention with her beauty, as well as her bright and beautiful eyes. Not only that, Aeril also dots on his daughter, often uploading videos of her on TikTok, which includes singing Hindustan songs.
Now the couple's third child, Aya Soffya, completes the family. While Attar and Hayla take after their father's good looks, Wawa is happy to see that Aya has taken after hers. Only Aya has an Instagram account so far, with more than 330 thousand followers.
Syeriv Samheizy & Sarima Samheizy
The firstborn of celeb couple Shaheizy Sam and Syatilla Melvin, given the unique name of Syeriv Samheizy, often grabs fans' attention with his entertaining antics. Furthermore, Syatilla often shares photos and videos of Syeriv – or more adorably known as Mat Yip – with funny captions. The little cutie's favourite activity is swimming, due to frequent visits to the swimming pool with his parents since he was much younger. Mat Yip has more than 920 thousand followers on his Instagram.
Two years after Mat Yip's birth, the couple welcomed their daughter Sarima Samheizy. With cute looks inherited from Sam, Sarima is often referred to by her nicknames Mima and Bubu. Following in her parents' footsteps, Mima steals fans' hearts with her antics and own "drama", not to mention the cute faces she likes to make! Like Mat Yip, Mima also has her own Instagram, which now has more than 134 thousand followers.
Sharnaaz Ahmad and Noor Nabila's son gained attention since the first week of his life thanks to his unique name, which is a combination of classic and modern: Jebat Jayden. Fans are often tickled by his cute and funny antics on his Instagram, which has a following of more than 355 thousand. Jebat also often appears in the Instagram photos and videos of his aunt, the popular Noor Neelofa. Even though Sharnaaz and Nabila are now divorced, both still dot on their precious son.
Arif Jiwa is the child of Malaysian businessman Asyraf Khalid and Indonesian actress Tya Arifin, who is popular in Malaysia. Arif is also the grandson of renowned Malaysian singer, Datuk Seri Siti Nurhaliza. With his cute face and chubby cheeks, it's no wonder that Arif's nickname is Pipi Pao ('pipi' means cheeks while 'pao' is a type of fluffy, often white, bun). Despite his young age, his parents are open to accepting acting or endorsement offers for their son.
Arif has his own Instagram, with more than 849 thousand followers and was once the winner of the Si Cilik MeleTOP award at Anugerah MeleTOP Era 2018. Arif also attracted attention when he got the chance to meet Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad when the latter was elected as the seventh Prime Minister of Malaysia.
