Snap Inc. has created an entirely new facet of entertainment with its face filters, and lately, it’s become a social phenomenon. Celebrities have been toying with its gendered filters, which has sparked all kinds of discussions about true gender fluidity acceptance–off-app.

The baby filter is pure fun and games. Plus, seeing celebrities as babies makes it feel more likely that we would have hung out on the playground as kids. We not only added the filter to our favorite celebrities.

We’re passing out awards for cutest and ugliest baby faces.

Ricky Martin is just proof that this filter works. Look at that Menudo face.

Baby Ricky has some cool tats and strong selfie game. Tbh, he looks just like he did when he was a kid.

They say Latinos are born with a full head of hair. Baby Jenny has a whole ponytail. Get it, girl.

Baby Marc Anthony just won the whole game.

He looks like those babies that already look like old men. You, win, Marc. We really hope your baby photos look like this.

Meanwhile, A-Rod’s ears are granting him rights to “Baby Dumbo Best Lookalike” Award.

@arod / Instagram

Why, Snap? Why wasn’t this addressed in the algorithm? There is nothing wrong with having big ears, brow. You are still loved.

Amara La Negra looking… exactly the same?

@amaralanegra / Instagram

When you already have flawless skin, this filter doesn’t do too much for you. She’s perfection.

Mario Lopez would have been “Most Likely to Prank Your Mom” kid next door.

@mariolopez / Instagram

When you thought a baby face couldn’t get more baby face, and then you baby face filter Mario Lopez. 😂

Baby Gina Rodriguez was always “Too Kool 4 Skool.”

@hereisgina / Instagram

She somehow got her hands on a big ole botellón 21 years too soon. Felicidades, Gina on 100 episodes of Jane the Virgin. That’s telenovela status.

Jaime Cami wins “Most Elegant Baby” award.

@jaimecamil / Instagram

Jane the Virgin‘s production actually used the Snap filter during an episode when Camil’s character, actor Rogelio de la Vega, was trying to adapt to his telenovela’s request for younger actors.

George Lopez wins the Most Disturbing Baby Photo contest of the year.

@georgelopez / Instagram

It’s the firm jaw line mixed with the grey hair, we think. Maybe also the back posture.

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made it on the Time cover as a baby twice.

@aoc / Instagram

The congresswoman is the youngest elected member of the House, so we couldn’t resist. She’s still a baby, so the filter doesn’t change much.

Daddy Yankee wore this outfit when he was 2 years old as well.

@daddyyankee / Instagram

Every Latina mom gives their niño precioso a chain and a dad hat as soon as possible in life. Daddy Yankee wearing that look strong into his forties.

Salma Hayek hasn’t aged.

@salmahayek / Instagram

She kind of already looks like this. Maybe we’re all just baby faces wearing makeup at the end of the day.

@benjaminbratt / Instagram

And he’s wearing the sweater abuela made him so he’ll never catch a cold again in his life. What a good baby boy.

These Are The Baby Shower Gifts You Should Include In Your Registry

Unless you’re filthy rich, you probably know that being alive in the United States is going to cost you a pretty penny. You also know that getting married and having kids is expensive, which is why a lot of people are choosing to skip out on these traditional customs. How can we afford to do all these things we’re told to do if we still have college debt and live at home? It’s nearly impossible. Unless you get help. That’s what is so wonderful about raising money via crowdsourcing and having registries because it does truly take a village to help you settle into adulthood and parenthood.

One thing you can never do is leave your baby alone for a second. Not on the bed and not on the couch. This ultra-sweet sleeping area is called Dockatot Deluxe+ Dock and while it’s a little pricey (closer to $200), it’s very useful, portable, and comfortable. 

Graco Pack ‘n Play Playard with Twins Bassinet

Twins are all the rage these days, but how can you manage both and your sanity? This crib takes care of them both! It comes with removable bassinets and they claim “is perfect for napping, making it easy to transition to a portable playpen” and comes with a quilted mattress pad which creates a comfortable nap space. It costs about $200 on Amazon, but it’s basically a two for one.

All the presents don’t have to be for your baby, they can be for you too. If you don’t get proper sleep, you and everyone in your household will not be happy. This Leachco Snoogle Total Body Pillow is perfect for getting your body situated just right. Find it on Amazon for about $60.

Ergobaby Carrier, 360 All Carry Positions Baby Carrier

This baby carrier ($124) comes highly recommended because it’s so flexible and is made perfectly for those wiggly baby bodies. Here’s how one reviewer described it: “We bought this carrier for two big reasons. 1: I detest lugging around a car seat or maneuvering a stroller in public. 2: My husband and I are a tad paranoid about child-snatchers. When I bought it I figured I would be the one using it the most, but it ended up being my husband that primarily wears it (he thinks I’m too clumsy and is afraid I’ll trip and fall while wearing her) and he really likes it. From the times that I have used it, I can say it was definitely worth buying and I would buy it again in a heartbeat.”

Pampers Swaddlers

There’s probably nothing you will need more than diapers. While you may want to go for the organic route, or for those super ambitious parents, the cloth route (good luck), you cannot go wrong with Pampers.

The main product that will cost you a ton of money is the stroller. You will have lots of cheaper options, but you want to go with a stroller that can be used in various ways and that can also grow along with your baby. But who will fork over almost $1000 for this ride? Your group of friends. Several of them can chip in for this much-needed gift. 

Lotus Everywhere Travel Crib

One thing we love to do is travel. But a baby on hand can make that really difficult. Thanks to the Lotus Everywhere Travel Crib we can finally have some peace of mind that our baby will be comfortable and we won’t have to be lugging around a pack n’ play. It’s also fairly inexpensive, just $200

Skip Hop Duo Signature Diaper Bag

Driving a minivan screams “I’m a parent!” so does the kind of diaper bag you stroll around with. This super cute Skip Hop Duo Signature Diaper Bag ($50 at Target) looks just like a backpack but it fits so much more. It’s also a perfect accessory to your stroller, which hangs on the handle. 

Philips Avent 3pk Natural Baby Bottle 4oz

My mom always said, “when a baby is drinking from a bottle, you must be sure they’re not swallowing air.” Those kinds of retro bottles are thankfully a thing of the past. These new baby bottles are perfect at making sure your baby is only drinking fluids and also super easy for them to grasp on to. 

Now that you know the presents you want, it’s time to choose a registry! Thankfully there are lots of options including Amazon, Target, Walmart and more

A Beard Can Make Or Break A Look, Here Are Some Of Our Favorite Celebrity Beards

Gareth Cattermole / Getty Images

At some point or another, men will try to grow out their beards. It’s a fact of life. Many will be successful in their mission for a full beard, others will not make it very far on this quest. Either way, everyone knows that a beard really helps to change your look. With Beard Day rapidly approaching, it is time to take a look at the celebrity beards that make us swoon, envious, or both!

Gael García Bernal

A beard can change someone’s entire look. In Gael García Bernal’s case, it changed his face for the better (slightly, he still looks good without a beard.)

Mark Sanchez

When the NFL quarterback debuted his new look, we were put at a standstill. “Is that you, Mark?” We thought. But alas, it seemed Sanchez was opting for a brand new look this season. We just hope he doesn’t grow that mustache as long as Yosemite Sam’s!

Danny Trejo

The actor’s lopsided mustache ranks along with Mark Sanchez’s. We wonder what a differently style ‘stache would look like on Trejo.

Kid Cudi

African-American and Mexican rapper has been pretty consistent through the years with his mustache beard combo.

Jason Momoa

Jason Momoa is known for his instantly recognizable beard. A lot of his characters, such as Aquaman and Khal Drogo, have been played with his signature beard. It is hands down, one of the best celebrity beards. It was devastating for fans and beard lovers to watch him shave his thick beard via a video on YouTube. But, it wasn’t all bad. Momoa publicly shaved his beard for a good cause, to raise awareness on using aluminium instead of plastic. 

Chris Hemsworth

Almighty Thor, God of Thunder, Chris Hemsworth, knows that his facial hair is one of his greatest assets. After all, it is what makes Thor so great and recognizable. His laid-back look outside of the world of Marvel is complete with his beard.

Idris Elba

Salt-and-pepper? Don’t mind if I do. It’s not hard to see why Idris Elba was named the sexiest man alive by People Magazine in 2018. It’s totally because of the beard, right? His beard makes him look cool, sophisticated, and mature. 

Oscar Isaac

Oscar Isaac is an expert in growing out his facial hair. From stubble to thick, his beard has changed throughout his career. I’ve come to the conclusion that he can and will look good with any beard, no matter the thickness. 

Liam Hemsworth

Yes, there are TWO Hemsworth’s on this list. They both look good with beards, okay? There must be something in the Hemsworth genes that give them both the ability to pull off a beard. 

Keanu Reeves

Keanu Reeves is one of those timeless actors that never seems to age and he has become extremely popular amongst the internet community because of it. I’m pretty sure it’s because of his beard. 

Donald Glover

It is true, a beard can add years to someone’s face. Donald Glover aged when he grew out his beard, but in a good way! Earlier this year, Glover stepped out of an event with a bleached beard. Although he received a lot of media attention, he proved that he can look good while having a bleached beard.

Justin Baldoni

Look, I’m pretty sure that Jane the Virgin, was such a success because of Justin Baldoni’s beard. It’s perfect and he has proven to be able to look good, regardless of the thickness of the beard. 

Many people claim that beards are equivalent to makeup and contouring. In some sense, it’s true. If you’ve ever attempted to grow a beard or stood by as someone tried to, then you know how a face can change with facial hair that. If you’ve never tried to grow out your beard, I encourage you to do so, especially when fall is right around the corner.

No Shave November is the perfect excuse to put the razor down and see what your facial hairs can do for you. Your beard will keep your face warm during the colder months and every one will be jealous. Enjoy Beard Day by deciding to grow out your beard! You might like the new look it brings out of you.
