While the world waited for Britain's third-in-line to arrive, some folks may have been hoping that Duchess Kate's labor would last at least (another) 12 hours.

But as it turns out, a slew of famous individuals — ranging from Denmark's adorable prince to America's favorite game show host — now share their July 22 birthdays with the most popular baby in the world.

Don't worry, birthday boys and girls: You're still special!

As Justin Bieber's ex, Selena Gomez probably knows a little something about sharing the spotlight. The singer and actress turns the big 2-1 today.

Stewart Downing (1984)

A household name in Britain, Downing plays football (American translation: soccer) for Liverpool and England’s national team.

Rufus Wainwright (1973)

The super-cool singer-songwriter turns 40 this year. We wonder if he even knows there's a royal baby on the way. (Did we mention he's super cool?)

David Spade (1964)

The TV and film funnyman is 49 today. His latest show, "Rules of Engagement," aired its final episode in May, leaving him open for new projects. Royal nanny, anyone?

Willem Dafoe (1955)

Dafoe, famous for his powerful roles in "Platoon," "The Boondock Saints" and "Finding Nemo" (he voiced "Gill"), is 58 today.

Albert Brooks (1947)

The revered comedian, director and actor, who earned an Oscar nomination for his role in "Broadcast News," turns 66 today.
