— Adrian Fenty and Laurene Powell Jobs. The unlikely pairing of D.C.’s former mayor and the widow of Steve Jobs, a surprising pair, found A-list romance in Silicon Valley.

Prince George Alexander Louis, born to Kate Middleton and Prince William – and to England. It’s not every year an heir to the throne is born, especially one with such adorable chubby cheeks.

North West, born to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. We still haven’t figured why they didn’t give her a “K” name.

— George H.W. Bush, who made headlines by attending a same-sex wedding as a witness and wearing those wacky, wacky socks.

Mila Bush Hager, born to former first daughter Jenna Bush and Henry Hager. With a great-grandfather and grandfather as presidents, she’s got some more of that serious Bush political DNA. (No pressure, kid.)

— Rep. Steve Cohen’s secret daughter: He thought the hot blonde he was tweeting during the State of the Union was his daughter, until it turned out she wasn’t.

— All those D.C. sports hunks off the market: Ryan Zimmerman got married in January and his wife had a baby last month; Robert Griffin III tied the knot in July; and Alex Ovechkin is engaged to Maria Kirilenko.
