In the insular world of Hollywood, it’s all about who you know. And this is especially true when it comes to selecting the right godparents for your baby.

Now, for those unfamiliar with the concept, a godparent is a person officially assigned to care for a minor should anything happen to their parents/guardian, but who also provide support and love throughout their lives. It's considered quite the honour, particularly when dealing with celebrities, who are infamous for keeping their inner circles tight.

However, we can't deny that there are plenty of pros to a celebrity godparent, the most obvious being the financial stability, access to resources and first-hand understanding of fame that us mere mortals could never grasp.
