Bloggers and celebrity reporters keep gushing about how "genetically blessed" Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady's new son must be. Up to now no one has actually seen him, but we finally get a first look at the newborn babe ...
He's got big cheeks, a pudgy nose and a squishy mouth. Yes, he's really cute. He's ... a baby. My own babies were at least as good-looking. All babies are cute.
It's funny how people say it's inevitable that two gorgeous parents will produce an equally if not more attractive child. I'm not a scientist, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't work that way.
It's like on that website, makemebabies.com, where you upload your picture and pick a celebrity daddy (or mommy). A program takes part of both of you and produces a picture of "your baby." Try it. Some of the results are, hmm, interesting. One mom friend who used the site said her child came out looking "scary."
Of course this is not how nature works, but I can back up my theory in real life. I know very good looking people who produced children that grew up to be quite plain, even a little awkward looking. Conversely, I know average people whose combination of genes produced outstandingly attractive children.
Oh, well, I guess it's all fun and harmless. All children are beautiful in a parent's eyes, and it's what's on the inside that counts, we all know that. I hope that's what Gisele and Tom are thinking, anyway.
Do you know plain people that produced gorgeous kids, or supermodel parents who produced awkward or average looking children?
