How it started. . .

Supermodel Emily Ratajkowski told Vogue in October that she won’t know the gender of her baby “until our child is 18 and that they’ll let us know then”:

From Vogue:

WHEN MY HUSBAND AND I tell friends that I’m pregnant, their first question after “Congratulations” is almost always “Do you know what you want?” We like to respond that we won’t know the gender until our child is 18 and that they’ll let us know then. Everyone laughs at this. There is a truth to our line, though, one that hints at possibilities that are much more complex than whatever genitalia our child might be born with: the truth that we ultimately have no idea who—rather than what—is growing inside my belly. Who will this person be? What kind of person will we become parents to? How will they change our lives and who we are? This is a wondrous and terrifying concept, one that renders us both helpless and humbled.

And she likes “the idea of forcing as few gender stereotypes on [her] child as possible”:

I like the idea of forcing as few gender stereotypes on my child as possible. But no matter how progressive I may hope to be, I understand the desire to know the gender of our fetus; it feels like the first real opportunity to glimpse who they might be. As my body changes in bizarre and unfamiliar ways, it’s comforting to obtain any information that might make what’s coming feel more real.

Now for how it’s going. . .

She posted a photo breastfeeding her new son, Sylvester:

And here’s the caption from her Instagram post for the above article. She was woke for about 6 months?

Some might say her stance in October was virtue signaling:

And the boy’s name is Sylvester Apollo Bear, which doesn’t strike us as a gender-neutral name, but what do we know:

Anyway, congratulations on the new baby!
