The obsession with the spawn of celebrities is now so acceptably mainstream that there are entire Web sites and sections of tabloids devoted to their exploits. The logical apex of this obsession is to fantasize about what our own offspring with vaunted stars would look like. Enter makemebabies.com , the Web site that allows you to upload your photo and cross-pollinate it with the photo of a celebrity to create a fictional baby . At right is the apple of my eye, Bonkers Grose-Beckham (my baby with David Beckham, sorry Posh!). Click here to see little L'il Snoop Rosin-Dogg, the child of Hanna Rosin and Snoop Dogg. Feel free to paste your own creepy celebrity babies in the comments below.
