Kate Middleton & Prince William's First Baby 'Photos' Are Kind of Creepy

Prince Wiliam Kate MiddletonWell, they just announced their pregnancy news a mere 24 hours ago or so, and already, people are speculating over what (and who) Prince William and Kate Middleton's baby will look like.

And while there are plenty of us who are simply daydreaming about whether or not the royal little one will have Kate's dimples or Will's blue eyes -- some are taking it one step further, because apparently they just can't stand the suspense any longer.

An artist named Joe Mullins has already come up with an artistic version of a mini Kate and William -- after morphing together the couple's features to create super cute yet very fictional offspring.

(Some people just have way too much time on their hands, I guess.)

The computer-generated babes have dark hair, button noses, beautiful skin, and the boy child even has Will's receding hairline. (Nice touch.)

OMG. For William and Kate's sake, I hope no one has shown them the photos of their "morphed" kiddos, because even though they're kind of adorable, the whole idea in itself is just plain creepy.

I know, because I took the plunge and entered a "morphing" photo booth with a former boyfriend when I was in my early 20s. Based on the results of our little experiment, it's a good thing we never procreated. 

If I recall correctly, our first reaction was something along the lines of, "What the hell?!?" when we first saw the image of our morphed spawn -- a little girl who resembled some sort of troll.

Granted, the technology we used probably wasn't as sophisticated as the software this Mullins guy has, but still -- we were scarred for life and worried about the appearance of our potential offspring from that point forward. (Yep. I dodged a real bullet.)

And even though this guy's predictions for the royal baby's appearance indicate that the child will be attractive, it's probably safe to assume that the photos won't do justice to just how gorgeous Kate and William's first born is going to be. (C'mon, we all know she's pregnant with a real stunner.)

Kate and William have enough stress right now with her being in the hospital for acute morning sickness and all. The last thing they need is to see false images of what their baby may or may not look like.

Did you "morph" your baby before having a baby? And did your baby look anything like the morphed version?

    I find this to be a weird idea... most kids don't look like a 'morphed' version of their parents, at least in my opinion. They tend to take after one family more than the other. My boys look like mini-versions of my husband and my daughter looks EXACTLY like a cousin of his. There isn't much of me in any of them. I was there, I promise!

    As for looking at the pictures, the little girl looks great- but that little guy looks like they used too much 'adult' feature and didn't scale it down enough- there is a weird mesh to it! lo

    Those are creepy. lol But I admit that when I was pregnant I morphed baby photos almost every day. XD I must have had some kind of mother's instinct, too, because she looks just how I thought she would.

    They need to be left alone to enjoy the pregnancy or have we forgot about Diana and princess at that!

    This technology was actually first envisioned by Dr. Seuss! He created a machine that would "morph" photos of the mother and father, had it built, and displayed it at a world's fair. It was a complete failure, though - surely the better the technology, the more human the created image will seem, and therefore the more popular! i wonder if any of this technology takes into consideration which features are genetically more likely to be inherited from the father and which from the mother?

    My son looks just like my FIL and I haven't figured out who my daughter looks like, though she does have her father's beautiful baby blues!
