5. Harper Seven Beckham
Age: 2 years
Birthday: July 10, 2011
Parents: David & Victoria Beckham
God Parents: Eva Longoria
Family’s Estimated Net Worth: $294 million
After having three boys, no one really expected the Beckhams to get pregnant again. But to the surprise of many, they announced they were having a fourth child – this time a baby girl. As soon as Harper was born many wondered if she would follow in her mother’s fashionista heel steps. At 14 months, Harper was spotted in the front row of the Victoria by Victoria Beckham fashion show. It’s also been reported that Victoria takes fashion advice from her daughter. Harper must have some sharp tastes. It may explain all the fashion blogs dedicated to her every look.
4. Angelo James Konecki
Age: 10 months
Birthday: October 19, 2012
Parents: Adele & Simon Konecki
Family’s Estimated Net Worth: $32 million +
Adele’s casual revelation that she was pregnant was a shock to all, but in her defense, after taking the world by storm with “Rolling In The Deep” how big of a deal could having a baby be? The heavily decorated Grammy Award-winner made us wait a good eight months before letting her son get photographed at New York’s Central Park Zoo and her extreme privacy around her son and partner Simon makes us just want to know more–like, what kinds of songs she sings to him at night and whether or not she’s passed on her love of Beyonce to her little boy. With British funnyman Alan Carr as a godfather, there’s no doubt Angelo will have an all-access pass to the plethora of celebrities that pass through his hometown. And as his first birthday approaches, Adele is reportedly looking a lavish locations for a big bash, including London’s Beaufort Hotel.
3. North West
Age: 8 weeks
Birthday: June 15, 2013
Parents: Kanye West & Kim Kardashian
Family’s Estimated Net Worth: $130 million
After what was perhaps the most buzzed about pregnancy of the year, spawning weekly tabloid covers, speculation looms over whether we will eventually see photos of the youngest member of the Kardashian klan. Kanye reportedly pitched snapshots of his first born to pal Anna Wintour at Vogue, clearly a sign that he wants his offspring to follow in mommy and daddy’s sartorial footsteps. (And she already is, thanks to the Christian Dior booties and a sterling silver Elsa Perretti Padova baby set mom received from Jay Z and Beyonce.) With that background, plus numerous connections in the worlds of television and music, little Nori will likely have her choice of outfits, homes, and careers. But can it get much better than this? She’s already riding around in armored cars said to cost $1 million each and hanging out with Blue Ivy.
2. Prince George Alexander Louis Mountbatten-Windsor
Age: 3 weeks
Birthday: July 22, 2013
Parents: William & Kate Middleton, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
Family’s Estimated Net Worth: $69 million +
His Royal Highness’s late arrival had the world waiting with bated breath, and media companies shelling out the big bucks to keep their reporters overseas in hopes of capturing the exact moment Kate’s water broke (just ask Today‘s Natalie Morales). The heir to the throne has been celebrated and around with the world with international covers, including a People‘s August 5th issue, expected to sell 1.4 million copies, as well as official merchandise like royal mugs, plates, teddy bears, and figurines bearing the family’s likenesses. In addition to ruling a country and getting to live in a palace, Georgie is quite influential in the digital conversation: coverage of the royal baby drove the highest traffic ever to Us Weekly‘s website on July 23.
1. Blue Ivy Carter
Age: 1 year
Birthday: January 7, 2012
Parents: Jay Z & Beyonce
Family’s Estimated Net Worth: $800+ million
From the moment Beyonce announced her pregnancy on stage at the MTV VMAs, Blue Ivy was the cause of a media frenzy. From rumors about the bump to speculation if Kim Kardashian could become a godparent, readers could not get enough. Blue Ivy not only forced Clint Eastwood to push back the production of A Star Is Born but she was also featured on “Glory,” a song Jay Z released in dedication to his daughter. At two days old, she became the youngest person to chart on Billboard. While she hasn’t landed on any magazine covers, Beyonce has kept fans satisfied by posting baby photos to her Tumblr. However, that doesn’t stop fans from clamoring for more looks at the new H.B.I.C. Blue Ivy’s command of public attention will surely grow as she gets older.
