Yeah, I was trying to get at the possibility that one of them didn't know of the fame of the other because they were in a coma, or infants, or something like that.

Were the children famous collectively?
Did the children know of each others' fame?
By "famous", we mean that there was a significant number of people who knew of the father, and a significant number of people who knew of the children, right? Was there significant overlap between those two sets of people? (as opposed, say, to one being famous in one country, the other being famous in another, and very few knowing of both)
