Celebrity sons are the ultimate toss-up. Sometimes, like Damian Hurley, they are notable for something harmless, like having beautiful hair. But more often than not, they’re famous for something more embarrassing, like Chet Hanks and his failed rap career, or Presley Gerber and his face tattoo. It’s much rarer that you stumble across a celebrity son like Leo Reilly, who came to our attention this morning after Huffington Post writer Zeba Blay pointed him out on Twitter:
Leo Reilly, 22, is the eldest son of John C. Reilly (of Step Brothers fame) and his wife, the film producer Alison Dickey. Not only does he look and dress like an otherworldly, Gen Z Freddie Mercury, he also seems extremely cool. Here’s what we’ve learned about him:
His Music Is Pretty Good
Here’s the lyric video for his song “Boyfren,” which is like an elevated, indie version of Ariana Grande’s “break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored”:
I’d also recommend the sister music video for the same song, which involves Leo as a singing egg yolk.
One of His Hobbies Is Making and Selling Jewelry
He’s Extremely Stylish
Leo’s personal style is an eclectic combination of streetwear, homemade jewelry, and sweaters he may have borrowed from John C. Reilly. His Instagram features a lot of skittles manicures, pearl necklaces, and single-earrings. He also has a lush eboy haircut.
What’s more, he was a front-row fixture at this year’s New York Fashion Week, and even walked for Moschino:
He Appears to Have Two Different Colored Eyes
In addition to his otherworldly beauty, Leo sometimes seems to have different colored eyes, which he accentuates with glitter or face jewels.
He Enjoys Experimenting With Photoshop
He’s Big on TikTok
He Loves His Pops, John C. Reilly
He shares a picture with his dad every year for his birthday, and sometimes Reilly even stars in his short films on Instagram.
Thank you, everyone, for joining us in this discovery, and congrats to John C. Reilly for having such a hot and cool son.
