Who is Cobie Smulders and Taran Killam daughter Shaelyn Cado Killam?

Shaelyn Cado Killam was born on 16 May 2009, in the United States of America, and is a student, but best known for being the daughter of actors Taran Killam and Cobie Smulders. Her popularity and wealth has been due to her parent’s success, and she’s also earned some popularity from social media posts.

Parents’ Success Brings in Wealth

How rich is Shaelyn Cado Killam? As of early-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is at $300,000, mostly gained through the success of her parents who have been involved in a lot of high profile projects, which has helped in giving them and Shaelyn a life with a lot of luxuries. As she goes on with life, it is expected that Shaelyn will find her way to increase her net worth as well.

Cobie Smulders and Taran Killam

Shaelyn’s popularity and wealth is mainly due to her high profile parents who’ve become popular thanks to their prolific acting careers. Taran is an actor, comedian and writer, best known for his work with various television shows including “Saturday Night Live”, “Mad TV”, “Wild ‘n Out” and “The Amanda Show”. He was also a part of the Disney Original Movie “Stuck in the Suburbs” and has also acted on stage, performing as King George III in the Broadway production of “Hamilton”.

Her mother is Cobie Smulders who is an actress and model, who is best known for playing the starring role of Robin Scherbatsky in the highly popular television series entitled “How I Met Your Mother”, which ran from 2005 to 2014. She is also a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, playing the character Maria Hill. She’s been seen in various Avengers film including “The Avengers”, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”, and “Avengers: Age of Ultron”.

Growing Up

Killam attended South Orangetown Middle School, and is busy with her life as a student. In 2015, she welcomed a sibling whose name has not been revealed to the media. Her family relationship is seen as strong, as there has been no trouble reported between her parents, and they continue to be seen together and are constantly in the media spotlight. Since she is active in studying, there has been no intention shown by her parents of her wanting to pursue a similar career as them. They have not discussed any future plans, and many look to helping her find what she wants to do with her life later on.

Very few details are known about Shaelyn, and the media has not been putting much attention on her as she is still growing up. Many believe that more news will surface about her as the years go on.

Social Media Presence

Unlike other child celebrities, Shaelyn’s parents did not set up any social media account for her, and it is likely that they are busy with their acting careers as well. Despite that, there are a lot of pictures of her online taken by other media outlets. She’s mostly been seen going on walks with her parents, and in many photographs with her mother since she was a toddler, in various locations.

Her parents are very active on social media, but rarely post anything about their relationship or their family. Killam has not been seen in any of Cobie’s social media profiles including Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Nor does she appear in any of Taram’s social media accounts, as he is more focused on promoting his work and advocacies. There are pictures of Shaelyn on other less popular social media websites such as Tumblr and Pinterest. She has a small following on both websites, which mainly repost the pictures shown by other publications.

Welcoming a New Sibling

In 2015, Killam’s parents gave birth to a second child, the first since they were married, as Shaelyn was born in 2009, three years before her parents decided to marry. Based on reports, it seems that the second child has a bit more privacy than their first, as even her first name has not been revealed to the media. Like Shaelyn, her sibling has not appeared in any social media posts nor has any picture of her surfaced through the various media outlets.

Numerous online, video, and print publications did a coverage of the news report, though they are all similar and have not shared any particularly unique details. Shortly after the birth of her sibling, her parents immediately went back to work, with her mother still having a contract with Marvel and her father working on various television projects. There is speculation going around that either of their two children will pursue a career in entertainment, and if not in acting, in other avenues such as sports or music.

1[re his audition with Lorne Michaels for 'SNL'] I said: 'I don't want to be so presumptuous to say I'll come on your show and I'll kill. But I definitely think if you hired me, I'd do a very good job'. He said: 'No, no, no, no. Confidence isn't your problem.' And he just left it at that.
