Imagine coming straight out of the womb and already being verified? Some celebrity kids had Instagram accounts before they were even born! Not to mention, they’re pretty much full-fledged influencers by the time they’re potty trained.

Case in point? Singer Bahati and his wife Diana Marua created @majestybahati for their son Majesty while they were expecting him.

A few hours after his birth, Majesty Bahati had attracted  more than 15,000 followers. What’s more, Majesty who was only a few days old was named the brand ambassador for Rfh Healthcare.

At the time of writing this (Majesty is now age 3), his Instagram account has amassed 257,000 followers! He gets endorsement deals from kids’ fashion houses and entertainment posts and is a mini influencer.

Perhaps the thought of a little kid owning an Instagram leaves you feeling a little weird or uncomfortable, but sharenting (READ MORE) seems to be all the rage now and Majesty’s not alone in this trend —you may have heard about Ladasha Belle, (Size 8 and DJ Mo’s daughter); the six-year-old fashion influencer has 423,000 followers or teenage rapper 16 year old Trio Mio with 238,000 followers. 

Then there’s Olive, six, and Marley, three, whose mom, Tatiana Karanja famously known as Mama Olive, is the center of a lot of media buzz as videos of her cute girls get shared on parenting handles in the U.S. and even got a shoutout from actress Gabriel Union!  

Instagram has over 600 million users, so it seems like a no-brainer that some parents are keen to tap into—and cash in on—the huge audience in the same way stage mums have pursued fame and fortune for their kids through traditional modeling and acting channels in the past. Would you join the sharenting bandwagon and document your kids’ lives for the world to see?
