In ELLE.com’s first annual 5 Under 5, we bring you just under half a dozen yung humans doing more than humans over five years of age. These under fives make all other under fives―and let’s be honest, some over fives―feel completely inadequate when listing their accomplishments at parties, on the playground, over Insta, etc. You’ve seen 40 under 40s, maybe some 30 under 30s, but these are truly the next next next gen to look out for.
North West, 3
While her parents get paid to be on camera, North West issued a “no pictures” statement on her way to ballet last year and she’s sticking to it. VERY NEXT.
This Kid From the Memes, Undisclosed
This unnamed child (who appears to be under five years of age) conveys our inner-most thoughts with a single knowing glance. Next.
Prince George, 3
He’s got the bathrobe game on lock.
Ren Bannister, 3
If you follow her mother, Eve Chen, on Instagram, you’ll see that Ren is a gymnastics star in the making. 2030 Olympics anyone?
Elias, 2 and Kessington, 3
These are Nikki’s nephews, who she gets to add because she’s biased and co-creator of the list. But also because whenever she asks Kess how he’s doing his answer is GREAT (love a positive outlook) and because Elias can count to 20 without any help and has really mastered how to push his scooter.
Honorable Mention: Ellington Curtis, 5
Curtis (who was under five just two months ago) has more sneakers than you–and they rarely touch the pavement. “My favorite car is the Lamborghini. The Lamborghini Veneno, Egoista and Aventador,” he said in a recent interview. SKURRT, SKURRT.
