Hollywood's Most Influential Infants

video
24thJan2008
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt has earned the A-list kiddie a spot at the top of Forbes' first-ever look at which Hollywood babies have the most effect on pop culture.

Thanks to high-profile parents. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, better known by their tabloid moniker "Brangelina", with an even more high-profile history, her arrival was long-awaited and--no surprise--much covered. In fact, the adorable 1-year-old, the only biological child of the globe-trotting set, popped up in more than 2,000 articles over the course of the year.

The rest of the Jolie-Pitt brood isn't far behind. Two-year-old Zahara ranks third, behind Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' 1-year-old daughter Suri. And 4-year-old Pax, who's remained in the public eye since his high-profile adoption earlier this year, comes in fifth. (Six-year-old Maddox was too old to qualify for the list.)

1)
No. 1: Shiloh Jolie-Pitt

Age: 1 year

Parents: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

As the youngest child of the world's prettiest power couple and the only one bearing their immaculate genes, Shiloh pulls her baby bounty and maintains her cache by keeping a relatively low profile. With a reported $4.1 million payday from People magazine for her first cover (the loot was donated to charity), she's poised to become a bigger media maven than Mom.
2)

No. 2: Suri Cruise

Age: 1 year

Parents: Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes

America's most recognized celebrity cherub, Suri Cruise played the press with intelligence since she was presented to the world on the cover of Vanity Fair. The perennially designer-clad progeny of media mongers TomKat is constantly captured traveling the world and shopping with her mom in her very own pair of custom-fitted Christian Louboutins.

3)

No. 3: Zahara Jolie-Pitt

Age: 2 years

Parents: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

It's no secret that this tot holds some serious purse strings, as a shot of her carrying her own Valentino Histoire bag (grown-up price: around $1,600) shows that no gal is ever too young to dress for the adoring paparazzi. Being known as photogenic and full of personality pays off, as Ethiopian-born Zahara ranks two spots above her brother Pax.

4)

No. 4: Sean Preston Federline

Age: 2 years

Parents: Britney Spears and Kevin Federline

Sean's enormous Web and press presence put him within the top three, but his mother's ongoing tumble from pop princess to flashbulb farceur forced him to the No. 4 spot. Sean's list of media coups include reportedly stolen pics from a mother-son photo shoot and snaps of him riding in his mother's lap as she drove away from the paparazzi.



5)

No. 5: Pax Jolie-Pitt

Age: 4 years

Parents: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

Pax is the latest addition to the Brangelina brood. Adopted from Vietnam early this year, he ranks near the bottom of the list in Web and press presence. But his recognizable mug and A-list parents give him space in the top five.






6)

No. 6: Sam Alexis Woods

Age: 6 months

Parents: Tiger and Elin Woods

The darling daughter of superstar golfer Tiger and his model wife Elin earned her rank next to the Hollywood heirs with a fan base that counts sports buffs and celebrity experts alike. Though the first pictures of Sam were released on tigerwoods.com just one week after her birth, the move did little to calm the ensuing media mob.



7)

Tie, No. 7: Dannielynn Hope Marshall Birkhead

Age: 1 year

Parents: Anna Nicole Smith and Larry Birkhead

The well-covered drama of Dannielynn explains her No. 1 rank for press coverage. With a short biography that reads like a soap-opera script, her life has already been filled with paternity tests, custody battles and the tragic death of her mother.
7)

Tie, No. 7: David Banda

Age: 2 years

Parents: Madonna and Guy Ritchie

Controversy over the Malawi adoption of Madonna and Guy Ritchie's youngest child sparked headlines from the beginning. David's biological father was uncertain of the terms of adoption, while human-rights organizations accused Madonna of violating Malawi's laws, all of which elevated David's Web presence to No. 1.






9)

Tie, No. 9: Cruz Beckham

Age: 2 years

Parents: David and Victoria Beckham

The youngest of the Beckham clan, Cruz beat older brother Romeo in both Web and press presence, but tied in overall rank. He has been a media darling since 2005, when he was photographed just days after his birth. But his biggest asset? His parents, whose move to L.A. gives him ample opportunity to smile for the ruling paparazzi.

9)

Tie, No. 9: Romeo Beckham

Age: 5 years

Parents: David and Victoria Beckham

Though he beat his younger brother in popularity, Romeo must share his No. 9 rank with Cruz. The Beckham's middle child is often caught by photographers in the middle of soccer practice or watching his pop's No. 23 jersey in action from the sidelines. His profile was raised in 2006 when it was revealed that he has epilepsy
