Beautiful babies come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But it seems like, when it comes to babies, people tend to fall in love with full, round faces and big, beautiful eyes.
We actually set huge expectations for babies when it comes to our own. We want them to be “beautiful” in the eyes of others, just as much as they are to us. We dream of having a beautiful baby, as much as we want a healthy one. So much so that we “Pin” beautiful baby photos across Pinterest boards titled “My future baby goals”.
What is the obsession with beautiful babies? There doesn’t seem to be any scientific reasoning behind it. But, if we take into consideration our obsession with looks, in general, it makes sense. We simply want beautiful babies that grow into, hopefully, attractive adults.
There is even an old wives’ tale that suggests what a pregnant mom does, hears, speaks, feels, etc. will rub off onto her baby. So, some pregnant women take this to the extreme, believing that if they look at beautiful babies, their baby will become beautiful.
But, it’s likely a baby won’t look anything like what pregnant mommy expected. And that’s okay. Because every mommy knows her baby is the most gorgeous thing she’s ever laid eyes on.
Still, it’s fun to look at other cherubic baby faces with beautiful skin and bright eyes, like these babies, who are considered some of the most beautiful in the world.
20 Kristina Pimenova
Born in Moscow in 2005, Kristina Pimenova rose to fame as a supermodel before she even hit the age of 10. She has since moved to Los Angeles to further pursue modeling with LA Models and New York Models agencies, and has been dubbed “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”.
Although she’ll be 12 this year, it’s clear that she even had beauty going for her as a baby. Her parents, obviously aware of her striking beauty, got her into modeling as a toddler, and she’s been making waves in the industry ever since.
In fact, the pre-teen has almost 2 million followers on Instagram, has starred in campaigns for Armani Kids, Roberto Cavalli Junior, and DSquared2, and she’s one of the most-searched models in Google search results, even hanging in there with the adult supermodels we know and love.
19 Aira Marie Brown
Born in the United States in 2009, Aira Maria Brown is now nearing 8 years old. But, she rose to stardom quickly before her 2nd birthday, catching the attention of hundreds upon thousands of internet users who fell in love with her ridiculously blond hair and gorgeous blue eyes. But, her mom has been criticized over doing Aira’s makeup and rumors of dying her hair the platinum blond that it is.
Regardless, she’s just as beautiful now as she was then. And, Aira’s modeling career was, and still is, in full swing, modeling for several kidswear companies and editorials in magazines. In 2015, she appeared in the film, The Longest Ride, and has since worked in two other films slated to come out in 2017. She continues to model and appear in ad campaigns, and it doesn’t look like this little beauty’s career is going to slow down anytime soon.
18 Riley Shines
Meet little Riley Shines, the newest Gerber Baby, who is making headlines for his adorable face at only 7 months old! Riley was chosen out of over 110,000 entries to become the company’s spokesbaby for 2017. The company said it couldn’t help but choose Riley for his vivid expressions and “visual appeal”, noting that he’d be a perfect representative for the brand.
Riley’s parents, who live with the handsome boy in Columbus, Ohio, decided at the last minute to enter Riley, just for fun. When they found out he’d been chosen, they couldn’t believe it. It’s no surprise to us, though. Riley’s big brown eyes capture us from the moment we look at him, and his smile is absolutely contagious.
17 Nahla Aubry
Nahla Aubry was one of the most-anticipated Hollywood babies ever, with parents Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry. Born in 2008, she even exceeded everyone’s already-high expectations of how beautiful she would be because of her gorgeous parents. Halle Berry fans, especially, have been in awe of the little beauty ever since, tracking her moves in tabloids, magazines, and social media.
Perhaps, fans’ most favorite feature is Nahla’s gorgeous, curly, light brown hair. In fact, it won’t take you long in a Google search to find galleries of fans’ favorite Nahla hairstyles, like adorable double pigtail buns, or left down to showcase her ringlets. No matter what hairstyle she had as a baby or growing girl, she remains just as cute as ever.
16 Aiden J. Garcia
Aiden J. Garcia is one of the most sought-after young boy models after the world fell in love with him as a preschooler. You may remember his video on YouTube when he was 4 years old, asking the world, “Do you think I’m cute? Yes or no?”. His curly red hair took center stage, followed by big eyes and catching smile. He’s definitely a face to remember.
Now 6 years old, he is a model, actor, and dancer, and has been signed to two modeling agencies: Teri B Talent and Model Management. He’s been featured in ad campaigns for Gap, Babiekins, and even does runway shows for kidswear.
15 Kalani & Jarani
These two gorgeous twin babies made headlines in January 2017 for their very different appearances, despite being twins. Kalani has lighter skin with blue eyes, and Jarani has darker skin and dark brown eyes. Both are beyond beautiful, and incredibly unique.
The fraternal twins’ significant difference in skin tone is rare, but absolutely possible. However, the likelihood only occurs in about 1 in 500 twin births, which are much more rare than single births to start with. Since Jarani and Kalani’s mom is white and dad is black, it made the possibility a little more likely, but it still took them by surprise when the babies were born.
14 Camden Lachey
Camden Lachey is the adorably handsome first son of Nick and Vanessa Lachey, born in 2012. He is now a big brother to a sister and a baby brother, who are every bit as beautiful as their older brother. But, Camden was the first Lachey baby to completely captivate the world, totally taking after his two gorgeous parents.
Born with a whole lot of dark hair, Camden has the tanned skin of his mom, but is a perfect mix between his mom and dad. One of the first clear photos we saw of his face as a baby was that on Nick Lachey’s lullaby album he released for his first-born, titled “A Father’s Lullaby”. Camden’s big blue eyes, matching those of his daddy’s, were unforgettable.
13 Isla Welch
Isla Welch took center stage in 2016 as that year’s pick for the newest Gerber Baby. The 7 month old beauty from Michigan seemed to steal the hearts of Gerber – and everyone else! – with her contagious smile and full head of beautiful, dark hair.
Isla won the 6th annual Gerber Baby contest, beating out over 170,000 entries. Perhaps it was her expressive eyes, or maybe her adorable dimples, that stole everyone’s hearts. But, we can’t help but smile when we look at her face!
Isla’s mom, Rachael, insists that her winning photo isn’t just a one-time deal. She says she’s the happiest baby she’s ever known, always smiling at anyone she meets.
Even more awesome for Isla is the fact that she was the first Asian-American to ever represent the company in their campaigns. Not only is she beautiful, but she’s paving the way for more beauties like her.
12 Laren Galloway
It’s not quite clear how little Laren Galloway became an internet sensation practically overnight. But somehow, someone caught wind of this little boy’s strikingly gorgeous blue eyes, and his photo spread like wildfire. It’s now one of the most-pinned images featuring blue eyes and mixed or dark-skinned babies, and the internet has fallen in love with him.
This all happened back in 2011, and, although his name has somehow been leaked, there isn’t any concrete information about him on the internet now, aside from a few of his more recent photos.
Some critics claim his photos are Photoshopped, saying that a baby of Laren’s skin color couldn’t possibly have blue eyes like his. But, scientifically and genetically, it’s possible, even if very rare.
Some people have a genetic mutation that causes Waardenburg syndrome, which affects eye color and other traits. But, even without a genetic mutation, it’s possible for recessive traits to sneak up through generations.
11 Gap-Disney Baby Model
In late 2016, Gap-Disney Baby revealed some of their newest models for the Winter 2017 collection, including this beautiful girl with strawberry blond hair and bright blue eyes. And, she just happens to wear hearing aids (huge kudos to the brand for featuring gorgeous babies of all abilities!).
More brands and modeling agencies seem to be becoming more aware of the importance of featuring people of different cultures, shapes, and abilities. Children, especially, are extremely impressionable in relation to what they hear and see in the media. Seeing a child who looks like them being a featured part of a campaign can make a world of difference.
There could not have been a more perfect pick for Gerber’s pick for the 2015 Gerber Baby than little Grace. How could they not fall in love with her perfect pose and smiling eyes? She’s breathtakingly adorable.
Grace beat out over 180,000 competitors to win the coveted spot. At 7 months old, Gerber fans went completely head over heels for her entry photo, which is almost too perfect to be true. When we think of the perfect baby photo, this is it.
Gerber says that Grace’s charm is what captivated the judges. Grace’s mom insists that the photo was actually a fluke, and that Grace had just taken her hands out of her mouth and placed them like that for a split second. Lucky mom was able to snap the photo at just the right time. We are sure, though, that Grace’s beauty will lead to tons of gorgeous photos in her lifetime!
9 Asher Nash
When internet mobs got a hold of the ridiculously handsome Asher Nash on social media, they created a firestorm that allowed Asher to become one of baby and kid clothing brand, OshKosh’s, newest models.
Apparently, Asher had been denied by a modeling agency, due to his having Down Syndrome. Of course, the world saw through his genetic disorder and absolutely fell in love with Asher and his contagious love for smiling. Their support helped, landing Asher his very own campaign with the company.
And, the world fell in love, yet again, once the photos were released. It’s clear that Asher is one of the most beautiful babies in the world, and we just can’t get enough of him. Hopefully this is just the start for this handsome guy. We wouldn’t know what to do without his smiling face looking back at us!
8 Jax Slegers
In 2012, Jax Slegers of Sunnyside, Washington made his hometown proud by winning the Live! With Kelly and Michael “Cutest Baby in America” search, winning out of over 100,000 other contestants from all over the country.
Jax’s parents decided to enter him into the contest when they first heard about it, not expecting a lot, since there were so many others entering their babies and children. But, it’s clear to us why he won – he is just too much handsome in one little baby!
When the 11 month old was announced as a finalist for the competition, his hometown of Sunnyside rallied around him, keeping the public updated in its local newspaper along the way. Not only did he get crazy amounts of support from his hometown fans, but the country agreed that Jax was completely deserving of the coveted title.
Shakira’s son, Milan, has been admired by her fans through social media since he was born in 2013. Shakira and her husband, Gerard Pique, have avidly shared the boy’s photos on their social media accounts, and people just can’t seem to get enough of little Milan.
It’s no wonder, with such eye-catching parents, that the boy is following in their footsteps. His very first photo shared with the world was one that Shakira shared with UNICEF, a charity she’s passionate about working with and raising funds for. In fact, in lieu of a baby shower for her own baby, she had a “World Baby Shower” to celebrate babies all over the world.
6 Adorable Dimples
This baby boy with the ridiculously cute dimples is almost too cute to be true. His dimples have taken over Pinterest, continuously being pinned to boards filled with adorable babies. A to-die-for smile and dimples for days, it’s easy to see why pinners love him so much. Yet, even though he’s an internet sensation, his identity remains a mystery.
So how DO people get such cute dimples like this little boy? Most scientists can agree that dimples are caused by genetic factors. But, exactly how they’re caused in genetics isn’t yet 100% clear. Some believe they are formed when both parents have the dominant gene. Others believe they are an irregular dominant gene that babies still may not inherit, even if both parents have the dominant gene.
5 Flynn Bloom
With a dad like Orlando Bloom and a mom like Miranda Kerr, do you stand a chance to not be beautiful? Highly unlikely. And little Flynn Bloom proves it. Born in 2011, Flynn continues to remain on most of the “Cutest Celebrity Baby” lists plastered all over the internet.
Flynn came into the world stunning his parents with a difficult, natural labor, and weighing in at a whopping 9 pounds and 12 ounces. Since then, he’s been amazing the world with his stunning looks that seem to reflect his handsome dad more and more as he gets older.
Although Flynn’s superstar parents have divorced, they continue to co-parent the little man, and remain on good terms for his sake. We will continue to watch the handsome guy grow up with both of his amazingly beautiful – and awesome! – parents.
4 Beautiful Blues
Another gorgeous baby who has taken the internet by storm since Pinterest came along is this curly-haired, big-eyed wonder. This baby’s identity has also never been revealed, but somewhere, we are sure his parents are in awe of how popular he’s become by people who don’t even know him, simply because of his looks.
What seems to make blue eyes so fascinating and Pinterest-worthy, especially with beautiful babies? Although we don’t know the exact science behind it, bright, blue eyes are generally perceived as the most attractive kind to have. Some believe that it’s because they look more expressive and are thought to be windows into the soul.
3 Kevin Woo
Kevin Woo, born Woo Sunghyun in 1991, is a Korean-American singer of the group U-Kiss. He also hosts a Korean talk show about the latest music. Born and raised in California, he moved to South Korea as a teen to pursue his music career and has developed quite the fan base in both America and Korea.
And, apparently, he makes girls totally swoon. Not just as an adult, but also a baby. That’s right – this gorgeous baby with crazy beautiful hair is none other than Kevin Woo. When his fans caught wind of the photo, they shared it rampantly, praising Woo as being one of the cutest babies to ever grace the planet.
2 Barron Trump
You’ve likely seen all kinds of photos in the media recently of a more grown-up Barron Trump, since his father is the new President of the United States of America and all. And, he’s growing into quite the poised and dashing young man!
But, as a baby, he was a total baby stunner. Barron is a perfect mix between his parents, Donald and Melania Trump, with dad’s lighter skin tone, pouty smile, and face shape, but mom’s beautiful eyes and telling expressions. Combine all that with his whispy strawberry-blond hair, and Barron was sure to become a future heartbreaker.
Of course, his hair is a bit darker now, but at 10 years old, he still has his boyish good looks. We can’t wait to continue to watch this sweet boy grow and mature, as we’ve enjoyed doing throughout the years.
1 Bodhi Ransom Green
It seems that beautiful celebrities breed beautiful babies, and Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green are no exception. These gorgeous actors had a baby boy named Bodhi in 2014, and the baby has graced the internet with his presence ever since.
Bodhi seems to be a pretty good mix of both parents, especially as a baby, but he seems to be taking a little more after mom, who is often hailed as one of the most beautiful actresses in the world.
Bodhi is actually the middle son of the pair, with an older and younger brother, all equally as handsome. But, as far as the internet is concerned, Bodhi continues to be the one who seems to stick out in the group as a fan favorite. One thing is for sure: these two have some striking children!
