The American singer, songwriter, actor and record producer is also a proud father of three now-grown children, who are all busy with thier own careers these days.
Lionel Richie's three children, 36-year-old Nicole Richie-Madden, 24-year-old Miles Brockman Richie, and 19-year-old Sofia Richie, have all carved out careers for themselves in the entertainment industry like their famous father.
While Nicole is an actress, television personality, and fashion designer, both Miles and Sofia dabble in modeling.
Miles recently took to his Instagram account to share a photo of himself without a shirt on, chilling outside in the sun while taking a smoke. He appeared to be relaxing out in his own backyard when the shot was taken.
Miles is wearing just a pair of dark shorts and black and white sneakers. The lack of clothing shows off his many tattoos, which appear to cover his entire back, his arms, and even down his legs. Indeed, it seems he may already have run out of canvas.
But the 24-year-old seemed relaxed in the image. He had a towel down on the green lounger he was seated on, and a number of green umbrellas stood in the background ready for use should the sun become too much.
Another image he's recently shared shows that his tattoos also cover his entire front.
Miles made his runway debut at New York Fashion Week in February of 2018, at Philipp Plein's bacchanal-cum-fashion show. The 24-year-old is signed with IMG models.
An image shared by Miles with his famous father shows that the two share more than just a last name. In fact, Miles seems to be nothing but a younger version of Lionel, just with slightly more facial hair.
The pair have the same eyes, same nose, same lips, and even similar hairstyles.
