As of Tuesday, Prince George is technically the most powerful 1-year-old in the world — but this was a big year for famous babies, so he’s got some rival kids who could threaten his throne. (The pop culture one, not the actual throne. That would be impossible, probably.)
After all, celebrity tots are a booming business; if you’re really lucky, the birth of your child can be sponsored by a laundry detergent. So there has to be an order to the chaos.
Because George is obviously No. 1 — the others are adorable, but presumably won’t grow up to rule a country — here’s our ranking list of celebrity babies of the last year.
Parents: Kanye West, Kim Kardashian
Basic rule: If your first birthday party is an epic spectacle called “Kidchella,” no other babies really have a chance.
Lincoln Bell Shepard
Parents: Dax Shepard, Kristen Bell
This baby is so powerful that her existence drove her parents to lobby for a #NoKidsPolicy, in which the tabloids won’t publish photos of celebrity kids without their parents’ consent. (There are, however, plenty of pictures of them.)

Parents: Henry Hager, Jenna Bush Hager
Presidential grandchildren (even former ones) have no choice but to wind up in the Top 3.
Winnie Rose Fallon
Parents: Jimmy Fallon, Nancy Juvonen
When your dad lands “The Tonight Show,” you get some perks: Like a People magazine cover before your first birthday.
Milan Pique Mebarak
Parents: Shakira, Gerard Pique
Shakira took her baby son all around the World Cup, making him the envy of many grown soccer fans.
Carmen Gabriela Baldwin
Parents: Alec Baldwin, Hilaria Thomas Baldwin
Her dad may have voluntarily disappeared from the public spotlight, but Carmen’s got quite the presence on Instagram thanks to her yoga teacher mom.
Ace Knute Johnson
Parents: Eric Johnson, Jessica Simpson
When Jessica Simpson is your mom, your Instagram pictures are automatically taken to the next level.
Parents: Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan-Tatum
With Channing Tatum’s career on fire, baby Everly is a very in-demand toddler.
Axl Jack Duhamel
Parents: Josh Duhamel, Fergie
Axl at least wins for name of the year.
Alena Rose Jonas
Parents: Kevin Jonas, Danielle Jonas
Being sponsored by a laundry detergent is certainly one way to enter the world.
