If Kristen Bell And Dax Shepard Really Want Us To Stop Looking At Celebrikid Photos, Celebs Need To Stop Making Such Cute Kids

So I have a problem. Many, if we're going to be honest with each other. But today we'll just dive into you. Superparents Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell launched a campaign yesterday to get normals like us to stop supporting magazines (and I suppose blogs) that publish photos of celebrity children. Which in theory is totally great and I totally support it. Celebriadults choose their careers and know that being stalked comes with the territory. Celebrikids on the other hand end up there by chance. Crushable's official child-psychologist/body-language-consultant says studies show that it's incredibly traumatizing to grow up in front of grown men with cameras. So with those studies mind, I totally stand by their tweets as well as their proposed boycott.




But — and I bet you saw this but coming — I'm obsessed with celebrity children. Not only because they usually happen to be better looking that 99.9% of normal children, but also because they're so much easier to live vicariously through than their parents. Becoming an adult celebrity takes a lot of hard work — from the celeb itself and a talented team of surgeons, specialized dermatologists, physical trainers and Ryan Seacrest. However, as we discussed earlier, you can become a celebrity child purely by chance. And considering that my last acting gig was district attorney in my 5th grade “Don't Do Drugs” school play, I don't think I'm going to get to live like a celeb any other way besides chance.

So with all that said, here's what I'm going to do. I'm going to TRY to be better about clicking on photos of celebrikids. For the sake of baby Lincoln. And in exchange for my efforts, I'm just going to need celebrities to stop making adorable babies. I mean, don't go and make them ugly on my behalf. No need for braces or anything drastic. Just make 'em normal looking. Okay?
