Using a variety of sources, we collected a list of famous celebrity parents and searched Instagram for their current number of followers as of June 30th 2021. We also used Google Keyword Planner to find the number of annual searches for each celebrity worldwide (finding the search volume for each celebrity full name, i.e first and last name together) between June 2020 and May 2021. 

We then gave each couple a normalised score out of ten for both their combined Instagram followings and annual search volume, before taking an average of these two scores for our final ranking.
