This summer, there will be a new heir to the throne, and to the fame and fortune that come along with it. Baby "Kimye," the daughter of the much-hyped Hollywood royalty couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, won't be alone though, as Princess Kate and Prince William's little bundle of joy will soon make his or her entrance into the world as well. When it comes to which baby will be born first, a majority of Americans aren't sure (59%), but 26% believe Kate and William's baby will come first, compared to 15% who believe it will be Kimye's, according to an online Harris Poll that surveyed 2,345 U.S. adults (ages 18+) between April 10 and 15, 2013 to find out answers to the most pressing baby questions. (Full findings and data tables available here.) Younger Americans (those 18-35) are more opinionated about the due dates. Three in ten (30%) say Kate will be the first to deliver, while nearly one-quarter (24%) believe it will be Kimye's.
People may not be able to decide on due dates, but they have made up their minds as to which baby will be more spoiled. Half of Americans (50%) say Kim's baby will be more spoiled, while just one in ten (10%) think it will be the future King or Queen of England.
When it comes to picking a partner for playtime, Kate's calm and collected manner may have helped her popularity. When women were asked which famous mom they would like to have a play date with, almost one in five (19%) picked the English princess. Other play date-worthy moms included similarly sweet celeb, Jennifer Garner (17%). Just over one in ten (12%), picked grown-up child star Drew Barrymore, while 9% chose new mom Adele. Are moms burned out by even the thought of socializing with energetic stars? Only 6% of women would prefer to have a playdate with vivacious pop singers Beyonce and Gwen Stefani.
Among women with children at home, Southern sweethearts were the clear favorite. Moms would rather push strollers around with Jennifer Garner and Reese Witherspoon, who got 22% and 20% of the votes, respectively. At the bottom of the list were paparazzi favorites Kim Kardashian (4%) and Britney Spears (1%).
