Cassius Riley

There is no hiding for some kids who are born by celebrity parents. They will always be in the spotlight. Well, except, the parents consciously decide to keep the baby from the media. Even when they do this, it is inevitable that someday the kids would face the throbbing eyes of the media. This is not the case for Cassius Riley! Born to celebrities, Morgan O’Kane and Domino Kirke, Riley had no choice. He didn’t choose to be one of the most talked about children in recent times. His parents’ separation didn’t help matters moving forward. But Riley’s integration into celebrity life came rather too fast. But, the young chap is coping or not. You’d get to find out in this article.

There is the problem of being given birth to a famous person, or parents. There are the ups and downs which in all honesty are not avoidable. Given that he is still only a kid, there isn’t too much information about him. Man is just starting his life. But, from the pictures posted by his father on social media, we believe young Cassius Riley enjoys hiking, fishing, and mountain climbing. And tell you what? We actually enjoy the father-son bond we see on display. Not too much information about Riley, however, there is a lot of information about his parents and we are digging into it. Before both O’Kane and Kirke had an agreement on how they wanted to raise their child, Kirke single-handedly raised Riley after she separated from O’Kane.

A Look at Cassius Riley’s Mother: Domino Kirke

Domino Kirke is an American actress who is famous for her role in the TV mini-series, Expecting Amy, which debuted on July 9, 2020. She also narrated the short story Green Umbrella in 2006. Domino Kirke was born to a rich home and has two other sisters; Lola and Jemima. The three sisters have carved their niches and are doing really well in their endeavors. Aside from acting, she is also a musician and doula. She was born on December 17, 1987. 

Kirke works as a doula. She co-founded a Brooklyn-based doula agency, Carriage House Birth in 2012. She has expanded her business to Los Angeles.

Jennifer Lopez

Unarguably an outstanding entertainer, but how much do you know Jennifer Lopez? Well, you can know more about her, here

After her separation from Morgan O’Kane, Domino has moved on with Penn Badgley. The duo married in 2017 in a courthouse in Brooklyn before having a bigger ceremony later in the year. The couple has a daughter already. Penn Badgley has taken Cassius Riley as his own even though Riley gets to spend time with his biological father, Morgan O’Kane. 

Who is Morgan O’Kane?

While Domino is always in the spotlight because of the nature of her job, O’Kane is the opposite. Morgan O’Kane is the father of Cassius Riley and he was born in Charlottesville, Virginia. He, however, resides in New York. Morgan plays the banjo so well and he is a musician. The nature of the job is still very much unclear, but he enjoys being on the road or in a boat going to places for recreation. He met Domino Kirke in Brooklyn after she approached him to work together. Theirs was infatuation, which led to them dating. They dated for three years and suddenly, out of the blues, they decided to break up. To date, they didn’t give a reason for their breakup. 

Meet Penn Badgley; Cassius Riley’s Step-father

Penn Badgley is an American actor, who played the character of serial-stalker, Joe Goldberg on Netflix’s Series You. Occasionally, Penn does music. Considering that Domino also is a musician, could it have been that this was a factor before they got together? Well, we are only speculating. Penn Badgley was born in Maryland, US to Duff Badgeley who works as a newspaper reporter, and Lynne Murphy Badgeley. From his childhood, it was clear that he was going to be an actor. His acting talents have won him awards too, notably the Special Mention Category for Lead Actor in The Paper Store Film at the Manchester Film Festival. 

From the pictures we see on Penn’s social media, it would appear that he and his stepson have created a bond together. Ransacking through Penn’s Instagram posts, one would see glowing tributes to Cassius Riley. 

Cassius Riley’s Net Worth

Even though he is only twelve years old, we cannot say he has a net worth but his mother, Domino Kirke has a net worth of $1 million, while his step-father Penn Badgley has a net worth of $8 million. For the latter, you may wonder why his net worth is that high. Well, Badgeley is an actor and if you saw Gossip Girl, then you would have come across Badgeley. In simpler words, Riley is a rich kid.

Cassius Riley is still a young boy and we hope that whatever choice he makes about his career, he follows through and becomes a global star. Hopefully, he doesn’t allow the game of his parents to get into his head too.
