Awards and Achievements of Ross Naess

No doubt, Ross Naess had earned a lot in his life. Unlike others, the man comes from a wealthy and famous family at the same time.

His parents were poles apart

His brother Evan Ross revealed his parents were poles apart during an interview. Having been born to a celebrity mom and billionaire dad, Evan and his siblings were privileged with a luxurious lifestyle while growing up.

But his mom and his late dad were poles apart. According to him, his mom is like, I work for my money and want my kids to live a certain way while his dad was the opposite. 

He used to be mad at their mom when she used to fly them in first class with her because he wanted them to fly in economy class despite owing a lot of money. 

His dad lived a very simple life and was not into materialistic things, but her mom, even for a month if she had to travel anywhere, would take with her bags and bags full of clothes and various kinds of stuff they needed. 

But at the same time, he also credited his mom for instilling in him and his siblings the value of family is what matters the most rather than materialistic things. 

He added that both of his parents worked for everything they had and never treated their children as though they deserved anything.
