Click through for a look at the most famous families in the world and the sources of the millions — and even billions — they earn together.
Diaz Brothers Net Worth: $8 million
Few fighting families throw a one-two revenue punch like MMA superstars Nick and Nate Diaz. The two have been household names among fight fans since their careers began in the early 2000s, when audiences were introduced to their skill inside the ring and entertained by their bad-boy antics outside. According to Rolling Stone, however, the brothers no longer seem interested in fighting. Nate Diaz, who earned $4.1 million from UFC purses alone, has a net worth of $5 million. Nick Diaz, who has a net worth of $3 million, earned $1.17 million in the UFC circuit. Both brothers count themselves among the top 100 all-time UFC earners, with Nate taking the No. 14 spot.

Schneider-King Family Net Worth: $19 million
When singer Elle King skyrocketed to fame in 2015 with her single “Ex’s and Oh’s,” she took her mother’s name and didn’t advertise that her father is actor and comedian Rob Schneider. A longtime Hollywood staple, Schneider is a “Saturday Night Live” veteran and a key player in a host of classic comedies. His net worth is $15 million, and his daughter’s is $4 million. King is a three-time Grammy nominee.
Osmond Family Net Worth: At least $51 million
One of the most successful and longest-enduring families in show business, the Osmonds have been entertaining America for more than a half-century.

Robertson Family Net Worth: $66.9 million
In 2016, the Robertson family announced that the one-time smash hit “Duck Dynasty” was going off the air. During 11 seasons over five years, America met — and largely either loved or loathed — the Louisiana family of outdoorsmen and women whose patriotic symbolism and religious and political activism launched them onto the global stage. Although the show no longer airs, the family maintains an empire of merchandise, hunting gear and even books that has earned them millions. Willie has a net worth of $20 million, Phil is worth $15 million, Alan $3 million, Sadie $500,000, Jase $10 million, Jep $8 million, Korie $10 million and John Luke $400,000.

Jenny has a net worth of $14 million and her cousin Melissa is worth $60 million.
Stefani-Shelton Family Net Worth: $160 million
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have 25 Grammy nominations and three awards between them.

They teamed up for Stefani’s first Christmas album, which topped the holiday charts when it debuted in 2017. The lovebirds also had a run on the NBC hit music contest show “The Voice,” where they met and recently reunited to perform a duet.

Cyrus Family Net Worth: $180 million
Billy Ray Cyrus, who has a net worth of $20 million, branded his last name on the world of show business when his debut album launched at No. 1 and remained at the top of the charts for 17 weeks in 1992. In 2006, Billy Ray took to television with his role in Disney’s “Hannah Montana,” which starred his then-teenage daughter Miley Cyrus. Although her father blazed the family trail, Miley went on to not only escape his shadow, but to cast a giant one of her own on the music world. The controversial pop superstar now is worth $160 million.
Wahlberg Family Net Worth: $283 million
The Wahlberg clan recently scored television success with A&E’s “Wahlburgers,” but brothers Mark and Donnie have been making money together for decades. Donnie broke out first in the mid-1980s as a member of mega boy band New Kids on the Block. He went on to land success as an actor on both the big and small screens. The rap group Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch punched Mark’s ticket to music fame, which he quickly parlayed into a global brand, first as a Calvin Klein model and then as an actor and producer.
With two Oscar nominations to his credit and a $68 million haul in 2017 alone, Mark’s career has gone on to dwarf Donnie’s — as well as the careers of most other Hollywood celebrities. Mark’s net worth is now $255 million, and Donnie’s is $20 million, but the family business has filtered down to others in the clan. Their mother, Alma, is worth $1 million and their brothers Robert and Paul are worth $2 million and $5 million, respectively.
Smith Family Net Worth: $294 million

The family, whose success is undeniable, also seems to be grounded in happiness and stability. With a net worth of $260 million, Will Smith is the undisputed breadwinner of the family. The pioneering rapper-turned-TV-star-turned-A-List-movie-star is one of the most recognizable faces in the world.
His wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, who has a net worth of $20 million, is a star in her own right, with credits dating to 1990.

Willow Smith has a net worth of $4 million, Jaden is worth $8 million and Will’s son from his first marriage, Trey, has a net worth of $2 million.
Manning Family Net Worth: $325 million
If football had a royal family, it would be the Mannings. Family patriarch Archie, who has a net worth of $10 million, went to the Pro Bowl twice during his career, which ran from 1971-84. His son Peyton is one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. Between 1998 and 2016, the seven-time All-Pro and five-time NFL MVP won two Super Bowls and was selected for the Pro Bowl 14 times. Still a top-shelf pitchman, he has a net worth of $200 million. Peyton’s brother Eli, a two-time Super Bowl champ himself with a net worth of $100 million, plays for the New York Giants, where he’s served as quarterback since he was drafted in 2004.
Peyton and Eli are two of the richest Super Bowl MVPs.
The family boasts a laundry list of records, but the most impressive might be Peyton’s title of highest career earnings, which had reached $400 million by the time he walked away from the game in 2016.

Wilson has a net worth of $20 million, thanks to a nearly 50-year career that dates to an appearance on “The Brady Bunch” in 1972.

Beckham Family Net Worth: $450 million

British Royal Family Net Worth: At least $830 million
Dukes and duchesses, princesses and princes — and even a bona fide queen. When it comes to fame, glamour, paparazzi obsession and birth and wedding announcements that dominate entire news cycles, not even the Kardashian clan can compete with the British Royal Family. Their net worth is significant, as well. The 91-year-old monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, has amassed $600 million. Her husband, Prince Philip, an art collector and former polo player, has a $30 million fortune of his own. Their oldest son and heir to the throne, Prince Charles, has a net worth estimated at $100 million, funded largely by earnings from his portfolio of properties. His wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles, has dedicated her time to volunteering for the causes she supports and has $5 million of her own.
Charles’ sons with Princess Diana, Prince William and Prince Harry, have net worths of $40 million each, thanks in part to an inheritance from their mother’s estate. William’s wife, Kate Middleton, comes from a self-made family that has made millions in its party-supply business and has a net worth of $10 million herself. When actress Meghan Markle marries Prince Harry in a royal wedding in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19, she will contribute an additional $5 million to the family, bringing their wealth to a combined $830 million.
This figure doesn’t include the wealth of the other children of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip — Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward — and their large extended families.

With a $350 million fortune of her own, however, Beyonce is no lightweight. Their resumes include a laundry list of No. 1 hits, relentless touring schedules, top-shelf endorsement deals and headlining gigs at the biggest events in the world.
