Celebrity babies are already famous before they can tie their own shoe laces.

Everything is filmed for social media, from the inventive announcements celebs use to let followers know of the baby's coming to their baby showers, the first photo of the young one, and then viewing the newborns luxurious lives.

And it's at these moments that you realize how unique they are.

Take a look at the fascinating lives of some of Mzansi's celebrity newborns.
