This emoji group also includes a bagel, cupcake or teddy bear.

And if you're an animal lover, raccoons, llamas, lobsters and even microbes will also be represented in the update. The Unicode Consortium has announced that among the latest emoji will be superheroes, redheads, partying face, hot face, cold face, infinity, and much more.
