    Five years after Michael Jackson's death, his legacy still lives on through his three children, Paris Jackson and her brothers, Blanket and Prince Michael.

    So just how have his kids been holding up since their father's tragic passing? Let's take a look:

    • Prince: The 17-year-old most recently stepped out at the True Blood season-seven premiere party in Hollywood on June 17. It was there that he hobnobbed with celebs like Anna Paquin and Joe Manganiello and spoke about his career ambitions in the entertainment industry. In fact, he told Entertainment Tonight, "I'm looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor." Prince's father would definitely be proud of his eldest child's extracurricular activities. It turns out that in his spare time, he volunteers with Children's Hospital L.A.

     Paris: The daughter of the pop icon has no doubt been through some highly publicized tough times, but things are looking up for the 16-year-old. E! News previously reported that the 16-year-old, who attempted suicide in June 2013, is "doing real well." Our source added that the blue-eyed beauty is currently still attending boarding school in Utah, and adds, "She is doing a lot better. She is getting back to normal. I think she has made quite a bit of progress over the past year."

    Blanket: The 12-year-old is the youngest of the music legend's three kids, and has been keeping a low profile outside of attending a few events with his relatives. He currently lives at home with his brother and loves tweeting about his favorite foods and bands—just like a normal preteen!
