You’ve definitely seen her out and about with North West and Penelope Disick, but how well do you really know Sophia Pippen? The celebrity kid, who revealed on Sept. 26 that she’s joining the cast of Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, has some famous parents, some amazing talents, and a great partner for the competition. You can read more about her below!
She’s practically an honorary Kardashian
Sophia is basically a staple at all of the Kardashian family events, from holiday parties to kids’ birthday parties, to amazing international vacations. Sophia may be a few years older than North, 5, and Penelope, 6, at nine years old, but she still considers them “sisters” to her.
But why is she so close with the K-kids? Well, her mom is Larsa Pippen, one of Kim and Kourtney Kardashian’s very best friends. That means the kids were all probably forced to hang out when they were younger, but now they couldn’t be closer. And her dady is famous too: former NBA superstar Scottie Pippen!
She’s a mini model
Sophia is no stranger to the spotlight. We’re going to have to wait and see how good of a dancer she is, but she’s already done some modeling even before hitting her first full decade of life, and she’s better at it than we could ever hope to be! She’s modelled for tween comtemporary clothing company Me.N.U. and more. However, she said that when she grows up she wants to be a “dancer, a singer, and a model,” so after DWTS she only has one more dream to nail down!
She’s a YouTuber
Sophia started her own YouTube channel called “So Sophia,” where she’s going to be showing fans her “daily routine, makeup tutorials, and pranks.” Her first video ever was a Q&A where she revealed that her favorite brother is Justin Pippen who is 13, because their “ages are closer.” She also has one dog, and loved living in Florida. She says her favorite singers are Beyonce and Cardi B…. oh, and that her favorite store is Gucci. Yes, really.
