However, his photographs have also received some divisive opinions, with many terming his fishing as "cruel" or "excessive," with a third even saying: "Stop killing animals."

Mixed as they may be, Connor has continued to follow his passion and maintain a grounded private life outside of the celebrity his parents enjoy.

Connor has been deep-sea fishing for quite some time now

His sister Bella, who was adopted with him by the Hollywood couple, is an artist who lives in the UK with her husband Max Parker.

While there were reports that both Bella and Connor were estranged from their mother due to their involvement in Scientology, the actress has dismissed any rift with her children.

"Motherhood is about the journey," she told The Sun in 2019. "There are going to be incredible peaks and valleys, whether you are an adopting mother or a birth mother. What a child needs is love."

Nicole added: "They have made choices to be Scientologists. It’s our job as a parent to always offer unconditional love."

The two prefer to stay out of the spotlight

Bella rarely opens up about her famous mom and dad but when asked if she still speaks to her parents she told New Idea in 2016: "Of course we talk, they're my parents."
