And the cutest baby of 2019 was...


We're all familiar with the endless cutest baby of the week, month, year, decade etc. baby competitions.

Parent24 has taken a look at some of the cutest babies of the year, and we have chosen our favourite one.

Before our big reveal let's take a look at some of the babies that have been dubbed as cutest baby of 2019.

The 417 Magazine has declared Brody Lama as their baby of 2019, and with a cute photo ready face like his, we can understand why.

You may have seen him by now all over social media in the cute memes that are spreading like a wildfire, and perhaps you have even shared one... Or two... Or three on your Instagram story like myself.

Drum-roll please...

The cutest baby of 2019 is without a doubt...

      BABY YODA!

Without spoiling The Mandalorian for you, Baby Yoda made its debut in the closing moments of The Mandalorian’s series premiere.

The show focuses on an armored bounty hunter viewers know only as 'The Mandalorian,' as he is assigned to track down a 50-year-old target. His client is associated with the now-fallen Empire, and needs the target for a few reasons I won't mention. 

When the Mandalorian gets to the planet, he discovers that the target is just a wee green baby with big pointy ears and adorable kawaii eyes.

The internet instantly dubbed the adorable green rugrat 'Baby Yoda', but many fans are up in arms, as technically the cute creature is not Yoda himself, and is referred to as 'The Child' throughout the show (despite being 50 years old). 

But we don't see that nickname changing any time soon.  

An internet sensation 

Baby Yoda has captured the hearts of many, and creators of endless memes, videos, art and more have taken inspiration from him (or her? It's still unclear). 

I mean:



So many memes

The cutest Disney princess

Baby Yoda, "cuter than a million Kardashians" and "the cutest Disney princess", has inspired drawings, paintings and even crochet dolls:

We're sure 2020 will bring us many more Baby Yoda moments!
