— Nahla Ariela Aubry
The Hollywood baby boom’s still in full swing, and while it’s hard to pit one adorable tot against another on a cuteness scale, some are bound to outshine their tiny competition. Take little Nahla Ariela Aubry. Halle Berry and main man Gabriel Aubry chose not to shop their celebutot around for the now-requisite newborn cover shoot, but candid snaps of Nahla reveal a baby who’s destined to be a future cover girl anyway. Then again, with a Bond girl mom and a supermodel dad, it’s hardly a surprise the perma-pouting, curl-topped cutie tops the list.
The Brangelina bunch could overflow a list of cute kids all on their own, but Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie joined their genes in a pretty spectacular way when they made Shiloh Nouvel. If it weren’t for her mother’s signature pucker, Shiloh would be the spitting image of her pop. Thanks to that perfect combination of A-list features, at 2 years old, she qualifies as true platinum blond beauty. But even wee ones look their best when surrounded by other aw-inducers, and that’s where Shiloh really shines. Just look at her with her constant playmate, beautiful big sis Zahara to see her at her best.
Say what you will about Tom Cruise’s antics or Katie Holmes’ fashion sense (and, let’s face it, there’s plenty to say), their sweet daughter Suri only inherited the good stuff. Sporting big brown eyes, rosy lips and the perfect blunt cut bob, she looks like a living doll. And while some star tots are shielded from the paparazzi, TomKat’s habit of taking Suri along for very public strolls means she’s ready for her close-up. At just 2, Suri’s already learned how to ham it up and pull some adorable mugs for the camera.
The lone boy on the baby list, Kingston Rossdale, boasts both good looks and fashion sense. Credit for the latter (and half of the former) goes to Kingston’s fashionista-rocker mom Gwen Stefani, who makes sure her little man is always decked out in designer duds and wheeled around in only the finest of gold lamé strollers. Of course, when the he’s not upstaged by his bling, it’s easy to see Kingston gets his big eyes and sneaky smile compliments of papa Gavin Rossdale.
Despite a tragic start in life, Dannielynn Birkhead is the perfect picture of a happy, beautiful baby. She has all the good looks of her late mom Anna Nicole Smith, sans the awful plastic surgery and years of hard living, of course, and only bears the slightest resemblance to her publicity-loving pop, Larry. The best of both worlds, really. Speaking of dad, he makes sure that every landmark in Dannielynn’s life from birthdays to the anniversary of her mom’s death earns her a magazine cover or TV coverage, but the question of good taste aside, she’s makes the most of her time in the lens looking absolutely adorable.
