Report: We Are Living in the Age of the Cutest Babies
This just in: We are currently living in the age of the cutest baby. You heard it here first. This pint-sized celebrities-in-training are some of the most heart-melting to ever come around. Okay, sure, this could’ve been said every year since the dawn of time. After all, celebrity babies are the crème de la crème of the gene pool (see: Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, Prince George, and North West). But thanks to celebrity parents' overactive social media feeds, we thought it's about time we honor today’s cherubic batch of babies.
From the dancing daughter of Chance the Rapper to Chrissy Teigen’s mini-foodie-in-training to the latest and greatest Kardashian royalty, here is definitive proof that the celebrity babies of today are next-level adorable.
Age: 1 year, 8 months
Parents: Chance the Rapper and Kirsten Corley
Claim to Baby Fame: Kensli appeared on our Insta feeds starting this past January when Chance first revealed her to the world, thus ushering in a wave of full-blown adoration for the baby. In his first post, he calls her "the girl who reintroduced [him] to God" and "the woman who...taught [him] how to love." Okay, full swoon. Since then, she's become a regular in the Coloring Book rapper's 'grams and Insta-stories–dancing, playing the harmonica, and beaming for the camera.
Luna Simone Stephens
Age: 1 year
Parents: Chrissy Teigen and John Legend
Claim to Baby Fame: ICYMI (you didn't): Luna is sort of the unrivaled queen bee of babies. She's been getting social play on both her famous parents' feeds since day one, and she never disappoints. Whether she's looking pensive as a hot dog, stealing the show from her dad, or looking right at home on a private jet, we can't get enough of Luna and her darling rosy cheeks.
Age: 1 year, 5 months
Parents: Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West
Claim to Baby Fame: Saint is the latest to join the Kardashian brood, taking his place alongside his sister North and a number of gorgeous cousins. The world waited with bated breath to gaze upon the newest Kardashian baby, and finally, there he was in all of his sleeping glory. Since then, Saint appears sporadically on Kim's social feeds. Surprisingly, though, he’s not seen as regularly as you’d think considering his Kardashian roots. You know that they say, a lack of exposure makes the heart grow fonder.
Princess Charlotte of Cambridge
Age: 2 years
Parents: Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge
Claim to Baby Fame: Charlotte Elizabeth Diana just so happens to be fourth in line to the British crown. Very casual. William and Kate have a habit of creating the most picturesque offspring imaginable and baby Char is no exception. With her impeccable and refined sense of style–hairbows, rounded collars, and all–this little princess stole hearts across the globe.
Age: 1 year, 5 months
Parents: Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert
Claim to Baby Fame: Junie is the plump powerhouse who “[runs] her parents,” according to the bio in her own personal Instagram. Those parents are Cleveland Cavaliers star Iman Shumpert and singer and insanely talented dancer Teyana Taylor. The powerhouse parents split their time between fawning over Junie and adoring one another. And, with some of the most well-dressed parents in the game, Junie is a regular style star herself. Gucci sandals, anyone?
Age: 1 year
Parents: Michael Phelps and Nicole Johnson
Claim to Baby Fame: With a name like Boomer, he had to be cute, right? The future Olympian is the first born of half-human, half-fish Phelps, and his stunning model wife, Johnson. Don’t think they wasted any time getting Boomer in the water, either. In fact, the pregnancy announcement featured a teensy Speedo, which pretty much set Boomer’s future then and there.
Age: 6 months
Parents: DJ Khaled and Nicole Tuck
Claim to Baby Fame: It goes without saying that the son of music mogul and all around life hype-man DJ Khaled, would be an instant legend. And brand new baby Asahd is exactly that. He’s the “executive producer” of Khaled’s forthcoming album Grateful, according to his Insta bio, and he is featured as the cover art for Khaled’s latest hit, “I’m The One.” When he’s not being his dad’s mini-me, Asahd can be found jet-setting, yachting, or being otherwise legendary.
