I'll be the first one to say it's despicable and wrong that a baby is judged on her looks -- a female baby, of course, because no one would do that to a boy baby. However, when you're famous, it's just natural that your kid's looks are going to get judged. I'm not saying it's RIGHT. But it is going to happen, and if you think it's not, you're in denial. Famous people know that being famous means dealing with the media and public -- and having their kids have to deal with that too. Okay, this is all a long-winded way of saying that Beyonce's baby Blue Ivy looks like her daddy. A lot like her daddy. What does this mean for world peace?
Beyonce and Blue Ivy were photographed recently getting lunch in Brooklyn and it's one of the best photographs yet of Blue's little face.
She looks like daddy. Everyone says so. Everyone on the Internet anyway. And yeah, they don't necessarily say it so nicely. Look, I happen to think Blue Ivy is adorable. But she's adorable in a Jay-Z way. EVEN BEY SAYS SO!!
I can think of other celebrity babies with world-renowned beauties as mothers -- Jennifer Lopez, Michelle Williams come to mind -- whose daughters look just like daddy. Are we disappointed when the baby girl looks like daddy rather than beautiful mommy?
Of course I will be stoned if I say I think so, but there you have it. Yes, yes, I think so. When a woman's looks are praised the world over, when she's made millions and millions off them -- well, I'm sure there's a teensy eensy part of both mommy and daddy that would like a little of that pretty DNA to be passed down to their baby girl. Beauty is currency. Blue Ivy's mother has cashed in on it. Don't you want your daughter to have some currency in this world? Yes, it would be nice if only brains mattered, but it doesn't.
Is there anyone who won't admit that, deep down, they'd love it if their baby girl was beautiful? Of course, a pretty momma is no guarantee of a pretty baby -- but all babies are beautiful, blah blah. But if your mother was Beyonce, you wouldn't want to look like her? If your wife was Beyonce you wouldn't want your baby to look like your wife? Of course you would. Don't be daft.
Do you think Blue Ivy looks like Jay-Z or Bey?
