Oh celebrities, they just keep getting younger and younger. From the five-year-old girl who wore a hotdog costume to her princess-themed dance class, to the stars of Jimmy Fallon’s Baby Bachelor(ette), it appears that easiest way to gain Internet fame is by being a child. While our chances of going viral become slimmer by the day, one mom figured out how to use this to her advantage.
Claire Dempster, from Cardiff, Wales, recently experienced Internet fame after sharing a photo of her baby. However, this is not your average rug rat. You see, Dempster’s child just so happens to look exactly like celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay.
On May 26th Dempster tweeted, “@GordonRamsay this is our baba – have you been in Wales for any reason around ten months ago?” Her tweet has since received over 3000 retweets, 5000 favorites, and a reply from the MasterChef himself. Ramsay responded, “Yes about 11 months ago.”
Considering the timeline of events, many people are speculating that Gordon Ramsay must be the father. Demspter revealed to BuzzFeed News that aside from their similar looks, Arlo-Blue also acts like Ramsay when he is hungry. Coincidence? I think not. A poll on BuzzFeed revealed that 63% of users believe Ramsay is the baby daddy as well.
Ramsay later tweeted “poor kid” and that he felt sorry for the baby, after news spread of his little lookalike. Here’s hoping that in addition to looking like Ramsay, Arlo-Blue can live up to his culinary status one day too. While Claire may never become an Internet celebrity herself, she can certainly bask in the stardom of her son.
