Other athletes come from upper middle-class families. Then there are the select few who are born into a family with wealth preceding their own generation. Here are ten athletes born with silver spoons in their mouths.

    We get it – kids of pro athletes had money growing up. How about making a list that anyone couldn’t just come up with off the top of their head, like a list of pro athletes who were well off as kids for some reason other than a pro athlete parent.
