Check out Daniel Day-Lewis’s 20-year-old model/rapper son, Gabriel Kane


I always sort of forget that Daniel Day Lewis was sort of a player back in the day. Before DDL married Rebecca Miller, he really got around. He romanced everyone from Julia Roberts (YES) to Juliette Binoche to Isabelle Adjani. His relationship with Adjani produced a son, Gabriel Kane (also known as Gabriel Day-Lewis or Gabriel-Kane Day-Lewis), who is now all grown up. These are photos of the now 20-year-old Gabriel Kane. He’s a model and he’s been working Paris Fashion Week this year with some newly blonde hair.

According to the Daily Mail, Gabriel Kane is something of a Jenner girl. He’s into modeling and music – he raps under the name GabeDay, because apparently his name situation needed more aliases. What surprises me is that he lives full-time in NYC now, which is also DDL’s homebase. It was my understanding that DDL didn’t have much to do with Gabriel Kane during much of his childhood, but maybe they’ve grown closer in the past decade.

Anyway, I’m including some assorted photos of Gabriel Kane during PFW. He was in the Chanel show today, he went to the amfAR gala over the weekend, and he’s been showing off his sleeve tattoo on the streets of Paris. Do you think he’s cute? He’s okay. I hate it when dark-haired men bleach their hair, so that’s throwing me off. He’s got beautiful eyes and promising cheekbones. But I consider his dad to be one of the most gorgeous men out there, so I was really hoping for a DDL Mini-Me. So I’m sort of disappointed. That being said, his tattoos really do make him look cooler.

He’s active on Instagram too – go here to see. Thankfully, his IGs seem pretty calm and not LOOK AT ME, I’M SO FAMOUS.

PS… In some shots, he looks a bit like Tom Felton.

    You know you’re an Old when a 20 year old looks to you like a 14 year old middle schooler in the midst of another growth spurt.

    • Kitten says:

      I was all set to hate him (rapper? Ugh) until I saw the sweet IG pictures of his kitty S’mores!

      Now I adore him. I’m easy like that 😉

      • Kelly says:

        Thankfully he is not into rap anymore. He is doing a different type of music. I know his girlfriend Elise. She is so lovely. He is lucky to have her

      • I Choose Me says:

        Eh, he’s a cute kid. Where’d you see the Kitty S’mores pics? Did I not scroll down far enough?

      • Kitten says:

        @ I Choose, hit that button at the bottom of the page to see more pics. He has a bunch of his cute calico…

      • Wilma says:

        Though the Zoolander is strong in this one…

    • A says:

      And here I was thinking he looks older than 20?? Like mid to late twenties..

      • Charlotte says:

        I think he looks about 18. His girlfriend looks like she is in her mid twenties.

      • Hawkeye says:

        I work with youth and every year, they just look and act younger and younger, so it might just be me.

    • sensible says:

      He is not as pretty as his Daddy. Back in the day he was literally breathtaking, this one is on the average side of that feminine manboy thing that is hip right now.

  2. Sullivan says:

    Move over, Chet Haze, you have competition. 😂

    • tracking says:

      My first thought was I wonder if they hang out. I don’t know enough about this one to judge, but he is quite beautiful.

  3. Catelina says:

    I think he’s cute, and would be even better looking with his natural hair color.

    • BangersandMash says:

      He’s okay.

      His dad…. Is magic!

      I have his dad tattooed on my arm… Nothing comes close too the magic his father is.

    • Maria says:

      ITA. Very beautiful, but the blond hair is not a good look for him.

    • minx says:

      Yeah, I don’t like the hair, but he has his mother’s beautiful cheekbones and some of his father.

  4. Esmom says:

    Yes, cute. The first shot frightened me a bit but the other shots indicate to me that he’s a lovely young man. I kinda like the blonde in this instance. Let’s just hope he’s not a rapper in the vein of Tom Hanks’s son…

  5. LAK says:

    Even though he is 20, he looks like he is still growing physically.

    His looks are DDL-esque with his mother’s eyes.

    I read somewhere that he has always enjoyed a relationship with his father as he grew up, and always visited him part of the year.

    • Noma says:

      I have read that too. I also remember an interview with his step mother Rebecca Miller where she said Gabriel lived with them in Ireland, and was going to move with them to NY. In think it was i. The telegraph or another british newspaper.

  6. LadyMTL says:

    Good lord, he really has DDL’s face, doesn’t he? It’s kind of a bit freaky, lol.

  7. Tough Cookie says:

    is that Julianne Moore’s daughter in the third pic? Or maybe it’s Julianne Moore? Or maybe someone who looks exactly like her?

  8. Pri says:

    Didn’t DDL get full custody after the break up with Isabelle?

    • Tough Cookie says:

      I seem to remember that as well, Pri

    • Ella says:

      Gabriel moved in with daniel and his wife when he was 13 years old.

    • LAK says:

      They broke up when Isabelle was pregnant. If DDL got full custody, it would have been many years later.

    • Mia4S says:

      No way! He dumped her while she was pregnant and didn’t pay support at first. Yes he does have a good relationship with his son now but not a good start. He’s an amazing actor…and a bit of a jerk.

      You may be thinking of Gary Oldman. He has full custody of two sons.

  9. The best of both says:

    His looks are the perfect combination of his parents. He got the best of both of them. Lucky guy. Guess it’s all up for sale now that he’s modeling.

  10. Tiffany says:

    He looks like Daniel from My Beautiful Lauderette. That’s all I see.

  11. Flahoola says:

    DDL homebase not here in Ireland?! Co. Wicklow to be precise

    • Vera says:

      Daniel moved to NY with his wife and children ( including gabriel) many years ago.

    • DDL fanatic says:

      From a R. Miller interview:
      Miller and Day-Lewis have constructed a formidable machine of a family life. They used to live in Ireland and spend summers in the States, and now they have reversed the order. For the past two years they have lived in a house in Greenwich Village – Miller describes herself as ‘a third-generation New Yorker’ – and the two older boys can walk to and from school. By two older ones, Miller means Ronan, who is 14, and Gabriel, Day-Lewis’s 17-year-old son with Isabelle Adjani, who now lives with them. (She refers to Ronan, her biological elder boy, as ‘my middle son’.) Ten-year-old Cashel is at primary school nearby.

    • DDL fanatic says:

      How cute is it that she refers to him as her son and not stepson.

  12. Mispronounced Name Dropper says:

    The Place Beyond the Pines.

  13. EscapedConvent says:

    I wondered what DDL’s and Isabel Adjani’s child would look like. Of course he is a beauty. But the blonde hair looks weird to me.

  14. Linn says:

    I’m not surprised he lives in NY, if you want to be a rapper and especially if you want to be a model it’s the place to be. Maybe he hangs out with his father or maybe they hardly ever see each other, the city is big enough for both of them.

    I think the light hair itself suits him and makes him stand out more but it’s only a good look as long as it’s freshly dyed. Dark roots are never a good look.

    • Vera says:

      Gabriel moved to NY with his father, step mother and half brothers. Before the move all 5 lived together in Irland

  15. merski says:

    What’s throwing me off is the Justin-Bieber-constipation-face in almost every single Instagram photo. How on earth has this face expression become acceptable?

    • Miriam says:

      In the photos without that awful expression he looks very handsome.

    • Ari says:

      yes the constipation face is so annoying and i dont think he is super special or anything

  16. Moxie Remon says:

    He’s pretty, but he’s not on his father level yet. We’ll see how it goes.

  17. boredblond says:

    I think he’s spooky..frozen face

  18. Damn says:

    His mother is one of the greatest actresses and most beautiful women and yet he doesn’t even come close to that beauty or talent.
    Lewis left Adjani when she was pregnant with his son.

    • Collette says:

      I Wonder what his mother felt when Gabriel moved to his father when he was 12 years old. After that break up thing that must have been hard.

  19. sills says:

    DEM BROWS, lol. Actually without the dye job he’d look a fair bit like his Dad, who I maintain in his prime was one of the hottest men on the planet. Also if I had any money I’d invest it in tattoo removal technology, those sleeve tats are going to go out of style one day and the legions of regretful middle-agers getting them removed will mean $$$$$$$$.

  20. mkyarwood says:

    Aw. I agree with the old lady sentiments found above and I’m not 35 yet. He looks like he could use a snack and a hug.

  21. FingerBinger says:

    He looks like every other “model”. The Groucho Marx eyebrows do make him standout.

  22. Green Is Good says:

    He looks like a cross between Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) and Tom Felton (Draco).

  23. ToodySezHey says:


    Le sigh.

  24. Franca says:

    A celeb kid is a model? How very unusual.

    • Vry says:

      At least he looks a lot more like a model than other celebrity kids. Look at Raff Law. He is not model material at all.

  25. Penelope says:

    I love DDL with every bone in my body for both his amazing talent and sexy looks (I give him a pass on his occasionally goofy outfits because well, because HE’S DDL). 🙂

    Gabriel looks exactly like his gorgeous Dad except for the (unattractive imo) blond hair.

    • Robin says:

      Gabe is very handsome. Both his parents are extremely good looking.

      Funny how most think Gabe has no relationship with his father when his father in fact got custody of him when he was 12 years old.

  26. Janna says:

    I think Gabe put the rapping on the backburner and does more R&B soul music now. He’s actually quite talented, from what I’ve heard. I remember when he was a young teen and was doing more acoustic, Coldplay-ish stuff. Then came the embarrassing rap phase. Then he got sober and moved onto soul.

    • Betty says:

      Yes, I like his R & B soul music. I remember seeing somewhere that his father and stepmother was at one of his conserts. His father looked really proud. It is a good thing he is sober and moved on from the rap thing.

  27. Tracy says:

    The hair……baaaaad.

  28. Missy says:

    He is handsome, but the blond hair looks awful.

  29. Marianne says:

    I normally hate celebrity kids, but for some reason I love this one….

  30. LA Juice says:

    What is it with celebrity children- do we need to sit them all down to a clockwork orange like viewing of Malibu’s most Wanted? Because, I’ll do it. So help me god, bring me the eye droppers…

    STOP thinking you can be musicians without learning to play music!!!

  31. A.Key says:

    He’s not even attractive, come on! No one would think he’s good-looking if they weren’t seeing his father subconsciously in him.

    • Kitty says:

      I think he is beautiful in his own way, but I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

  32. Rafa says:

    Hasn’t everyone seen his rap video? He was only 18 so maybe he’s come good but it’s kinda hilarious how he “raps” about his hard life (from Sarah Lawrence College campus), whinges about being a celeb offspring & fast forward to today: hopping on the usual celeb kid gravy train – average-looking kids who “model” & dabble in music.
