Family Ties: 7 of the Most Surprising Celebrity Godparents You Didn’t Know About

Cree Summer
“A Different World” co-stars Lisa Bonet and Cree Summer have always been close; so much so that Bonet named Summer as godmother to her and musician Lenny Kravitz’s daughter, Zoë Kravitz. Summer and Zoë share a close bond as well, as the “Divergent” series actress describes her godmother as “a strong woman who wrote intelligent, fun music. I’ve always been really inspired by her.”

Michael Jackson
