With Blake Lively’s announcement that she’s pregnant yesterday and SRK’s tweet on Monday, the whole gossip world has gone baby mad. Here at Yamgo we definitely couldn’t help looking at Bollywood and Hollywood’s youngest stars. In an effort to make it look like we were doing work, we’ve compiled a list of the cutest celebrity kids we could find.
Our only criteria were that the kids in question were under three with at least one notable parent. There are no D-List babies here. Here they are, the kids we think everyone should take a moment to coo over.
1. AbRam Khan
The inspiration behind this post, Abram is the second son and third child of Shah Rukh Khan and his wife, Gauri. AbRam was born on the 27th of May 2013… but until now no pictures of him have been released to the media. The only previous images of AbRam were grainy long distance photographs allegedly showing a toddler in the arms of a nanny at SRK’s luxury estate. The first official image was tweeted by SRK this Monday to celebrate Eid al-Adha, an Islamic festival.
The image shows SRK, now 48, cuddling his son as AbRam clutches two brightly coloured toys. Dressed in white, AbRam is the spitting image of his father from baby photos shared of the star online. Hopefully, he’ll follow in his parent’s footsteps and be just as handsome!
2. Blue Ivy Carter
Blue Ivy is the only daughter of American singer-songwriters Beyonce and Jay-Z. Born in NYC on January 7th, 2012, if her birth didn’t cause enough press, her parent’s decision to trademark her name shortly after definitely did. At the tender age of two, Blue is an international jet setter. She’s an avid fan of both her parents, following them on tours, listening to their albums, and even joining them on stage this year at the MTV Music Awards after her mother won the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
Are we jealous? Yes. Blue spent this summer in France with both her parents, looking at houses in Paris and celebrating her mother’s birthday on a private beach. Anyone looking for some candid family moments can find them on Beyonce’s Instagram account. Check out the moment she joins Beyonce on stage.
3. North West
The only child of rapper Kanye West and reality TV star Kim Kardashian, North has been living in the media spotlight since she was born in June 2013. Since news of her birth hit, she’s been living in the lap of luxury. At 16 months old she already has her own personal tailor (to create miniature versions of her mother’s outfits) and was recently spotted wearing an Yves St Laurent handbag worth $1,450! Insane as it sounds, her designer habits aren’t surprising given reports that little North is given hundreds of clothes and outfits for free.
Nori, as she’s known by family, has spent most of the first year of her life so far accompanying her parents on Kanye’s 2013/2014 Yeezus tour, which wrapped up in September this year. She celebrated her June 15th birthday with an outing in NYC before holding a Coachella spoof party called ‘Kidchella’ in California a week later.
4. Aradhya Bachchan
The only Bollywood girl on the list, Aradhya is the reigning princess of actress Aishwarya Rai and husband Abhishek Bachchan’s lives. Little is seen of Aradhya and her first official outing with her superstar parents was in 2012, when she joined her mother on the red carpet in France to accept Aishwarya’s Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. Since then she’s had very little media presence; she’s usually only seen by the press during family outings, with most spottings happening when she accompanies her mother to and from the airport.
Born on November 6, 2011, she’s the oldest of our list and is only three months away from her third birthday! Last year’s party was fairytale themed, with a bubble machine and personalised gifts for all her guests. Who knows what this year’s party will be? Either way, as the spitting image of her mother, she’ll be the cutest kid there.
5. George Windsor
Alternatively known by his official title, Prince George of Cambridge, George is the first son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and third heir to the British throne. Born on July 22, 2013, George was instantly engulfed in media pandemonium. Not to mention the celebratory customs of his birth; guns fired, bells rung and British landmarks illuminated blue.
In the year since his birth he’s already started to make official appearances alongside his parents – he’s already seen the sights of Australia and New Zealand. The constant clamour for pictures of the Royal baby has lead to a demand from Prince William and Princess Kate for photographers to cease harassing His Highness. But with the recent announcement of a second arrival incoming, it’s doubtful the paparazzi will stop.
6. Viaan Raj Kundra
The only son and child of Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty and her British Indian husband, Raj Kundra. Viaan was born on May 21st, 2012. He made waves at a day old with the launch of his own official twitter account. He’s the only baby on our list with a Twitter handle and the only one so far to appear on the cover of India’s Hello! magazine.
Another jet setter, Viaan splits his time between his parent’s homes in Weybridge, Surrey and Juhu, Mumbai. This summer Viaan visited Euro Disney with his British cousins and held a massive celebration for his second birthday. Shilpa held a lavish birthday party loosely themed around Psy’s Gangnam Style, which included posters with Viaan’s head replacing the South Korean rapper’s. It was attended by a host of other Bollywood children, including Bang Bang! star Hrithik Roshan’s two sons, Hridhaan and Hrehaan.
7. Azad Rao Khan
Azrad is the son of Aamir Khan, star of Bollywood blockbuster Dhoom 3, and second wife Kiran Rao. Born via surrogate in December 2011, he’s the only baby on the list to be both Bollywood royalty and actual royalty – his great-grandfather was J. Rameshwar Rao, the Raja of Wanaparthy!
The youngest of Aamir Khan’s children, Azad has two older siblings from his father’s first marriage – Junaid, 22, and Ira, 17. The family frequently attends events together and, this June, Azad stole the show when his sister organised a celebrity charity football event. Two year-old Azad played football alongside his mother, scoring a goal against Viaan Kundra’s father – Raj! With a family of film directors before him, it’s easy to say that Azad will continue after his parents with brains and good looks.
