Just like we’ve looked to celebrities for fashion, home decor, health and beauty inspiration for years, when it comes time to bring baby into the world, we often find ourselves looking to celebrity parents for their insight on everything from the best bottle for baby to the cutest maternity clothes.

With inspiration coming from all over, luxury stroller brand iCandy recently sought to determine just who the most influential celebrity parents are. To do so, they sifted through used Google Keyword Planner to calculate the global search volume for baby and parenting-related terms for 259 of the world’s most well-known parents. Key terms used within the study were baby, stroller, pram, pushchair, buggy, nursery and maternity outfit. The search volume for all terms was combined to create an overall influence total and then ranked to reveal the most influential parents around the world.

While there are some obvious names on the list, there are a few surprises sprinkled in. Check out the top 10 below, and let us know who you think should’ve made it on the list.

6. Khloé Kardashian

Khloé Kardashian and ex Tristan Thompson officially welcomed baby No. 2 via surrogate in early August 2022.

The beauty mogul revealed the name of her son to be Aire in June of 2023 and has opened up about her difficult journey with postpartum depression.
