Baby boom

I don't know if this is real or not; I simply present it for your perusal. Gawker's so casual about announcing it that I want to believe it's a joke of some kind, but I can't figure out how they could have managed to mock something like that up. Also, regardless of whether it's a joke or not, the baby's expression is giving me the heebs. That baby is going to eat my soul.

(They must have had the best photoshoppers in the world to go from that to this. But the massive touching-up would explain why it's taken this long for photos to surface.)

(Also, if it's real, it renders this Who's the Father? graphic moot.)

ETA: Someone in the Gawker comments is clarifying that it's not real. Which, you know, thank God, because I'm pretty sure that baby was going to destroy the world with fire and ice. ETA2: They've since gone and put an obvious disclaimer on the entry. Which is good, because in order for people to catch on that it was a parody, there'd have to be an actual joke, for starters. Anyway, we can all go back to scrutinizing pictures of Chris Klein now.

Meanwhile, Japan's Princess Kiko (finally) gives birth to boy. A real one. Maybe it's just because I read so many biographies of royal women under the gun to produce male heirs, but my primary reaction to this is "Thank God, that poor woman."
