George and Amal Clooney have six month old twins. They were flying to the U.K. with the kids (their kids were born in London in June, and Amal is from the UK).
And they pro-actively “passed out noise-canceling headphones” to other first class passengers along with a note “apologizing ahead of time” on the chance that the twins cried.

There was branding involved though. The headphones “featured the logo of the actor’s Casamigos Tequila” and a stunt like that is bound to get picked up by People, by Page Six and here.
Quentin Tarantino was on the flight. He’s said to have wore the headphones. But the kids never cried.
The strange thing to me though is that both of the airlines offering three-cabin first class between the U.S. and London — American Airlines and British Airways — offer noise cancelling headphones in first already. Relevant media aren’t reporting the route but it was presumably Los Angeles – London.
