Summer 2013 seems to be the season of celebrity babies. We’re not sure if there was something in the water last fall, but fast-forward nine months and we’re having a bumper crop of kiddos joining the life of the rich and fabulous. In just the past five weeks, we’ve celebrated two of the most hyped births of the year: North West and the Royal Baby.
Fact: Babies universally equal all things sweet and snuggly. Fact: That doesn’t mean we can’t have a favorite. Fact: The best place to make such an important decision? Newborn Thunderdome.
Cue the fog machine. This diaper’s about to get messy.
Here in the pimped-out nursery that is Newborn Thunderdome, two babies enter, one baby — well, actually both kids pretty much have it made in the shade for their entire lives. Still, a winner’s a winner.
So whose team are you on? We’ve lined up the stats for both new additions. Take our poll and tell us who you chose as The One Baby to Rule Them All.
