Anais Gallagher has responded to the criticism of “nepotism babies,” saying she is “grateful” for the “luxury” her upbringing has afforded her as the daughter of Noel Gallagher and Meg Matthews.

Anais, 22, knew that being the child of Oasis musicians Noel and Meg Mathews provided her with opportunities and connections typical of “nepotism babies,” or children born into wealthy or famous families, and she is grateful for that.

She stated that she would be “tone deaf and irresponsible” if she did not recognize the “leg up” in life that her upbringing has given her and that she will be grateful for it for the rest of her life.

She revealed in an exclusive interview with Daily Mail Online that she would be eternally grateful to her parents for the life they have given her, whether it’s the opportunity to attend college or have incredible job prospects. She also expressed her gratitude for everything they have done for her.

In response to criticism that they have access to opportunities that others do not, Anais stated that there is “justification” for hiring nepotism children.

However, she stated that she believes the emphasis should be on companies hiring people from diverse backgrounds rather than on nepotism babies.

She stated that it is unjustified for her to attack someone personally and question whether they are a hard worker because one can never truly know someone. She said it is unkind to pass judgment on and be cruel to people one does not know. At the same time, she stated that businesses should ensure that they are hiring because the candidate is the best fit for the job. She explained that employers, not nepotism babies, should conduct proper investigations and consider the best candidate for the position.

Anais went on to describe the pressure she feels as a result of her famous parents while promoting the animal welfare initiative Paws For Thought. She explained that it doesn’t bother her because there will always be negative people. Her parents do not place as much emphasis on her being wildly successful as they do on being a hard worker, having strong morals, and being grounded and nice. She is the one who puts a lot of pressure on herself to be respectful, to work hard, and to not take things for granted. Ultimately, she doesn’t care whether people believe she is deserving or undeserving.
