Seems like they're doing pretty darn good!
It's been two and a half years since Michael Jackson passed away, but the Jackson kids seem to be adjusting to their new life very well.
Prince, Paris, and Blanket recently attended a taping of The X Factor and Paris was offered a role in the film Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys.
The children's cousin Genevieve gives credit to their grandmother Katherine Jackson. She says:
"My grandmother is 81, but she’s very hands-on.
"Prince and Blanket want to be directors.. They make home movies together and recruit their cousins to act in them. The cousins are all very close."
A family friend also says that now that the children are attending private school, they are becoming much more social, adding:
"They love the social aspect of it. [Prince is] a great student [and] really popular with the girls." [Paris'] got too many uncles keeping an eye on her. [Blanket] likes cooking. He'll make cakes and cupcakes. The staff chef helps him."
And their Uncle Jackie knows that having a strong family bond helps too. He says:
"They stay with the family. That's what it's about. We keep a close watch on them."
It definitely helps to have their family support, that's for sure.
Even though we know they still miss their daddy, MJ's kids seem to be healthy and happy kids who are enjoying life right now.
We know that they're making their poppa proud.
