Earlier this month, we reported on the astounding news that scientists in Japan were able to create a baby mouse from the cells of two father mice.
The implications of the finding are pretty mind-boggling, with some hypothesizing this could pave the way for two men to have biological children together using a mixture of their DNA (with the help of a surrogate to carry the child, of course).
This is, without a doubt, a major development in the scientific world that could one day change the lives of gay men who hope to be biological fathers, as well as many others.
And while we’d rather not get too far ahead of ourselves, it’s been a pretty dreary week so far, so we at Queerty decided to have a little fun. You see, we can conduct some scientific studies of our own…
Using “highly advanced DNA-splicing technology” (no, it’s not called FaceApp, why do you ask?) we decided to take a peek into the future and imagine what the offspring of some of our favorite gay male stars (and a few allies) might look like.
And the results? Well, they’re a mixture of strange, eyebrow-raising, and just a little unsettling. But, again, it’s been a rough week, so let’s just have some fun for the heck of it.
So, follow us into the uncanny valley to see what might happen if some of today’s biggest stars got together and made a kid!:
Matt Bomer & Jonathan Bailey
After those beach photos leaked from the set of their upcoming limited series, Fellow Travelers, we’ve been thinking a lot about Bomer and Bailey making babies…
Omar Apollo & Troye Sivan
Two of today’s most exciting gay pop stars getting together to make a rager teenager of their own? Music to our ears!
Murray Bartlett & Colman Domingo
While The Last Of Us and White Lotus‘ Bartlett and Euphoria‘s Domingo are famously partnered, we just know there’s some good genes between HBO’s daddy royalty.
Chris Appleton & Lukas Gage
Speaking of The White Lotus, what would happen if “It Boy” Gage and his now-confirmed celeb stylist beau got together to procreate?
Joel Kim Booster & Jerrod Carmichael
With two hilarious comics as his dads, every bone is this kid’s body is going to be a funny bone.
Billy Eichner & Luke Macfarlane
What if the two bros of Bros got together to make a baby bro? Stay tuned for Bros 2: Daddy Drama, coming soon to a theater near you.
Jeremy Pope & Colton Haynes
Considering both Pope and Haynes have starred in multiple Ryan Murphy projects, we’re sure the super-producer would try to cast their kid the first chance he gets.
Pedro Pascal & Oscar Isaac
Famously besties, we’re not holding out hope for this pairing (Isaac, for one, is married, and Pascal is… blowing in the wind?), but a girl can dream, right?
Gus Kenworthy & Adam Rippon
Since his dads would have both a Silver and a Bronze medal between them, does that mean the Kenworthy-Rippon kid has Oscar gold in his future?
Johnny Sibilly & Lil Nas X
Honestly, we just like imagining what would happen if two hot people got together.

Kids! If you want to see a really fine Daddy that also comes with a brain, look up the FOSSIL DADDY.
And if you’re into earth science, there’s lots of amazing things to see and discover!
Every single one of the offspring is attractive. Joel Kim Booster’s child with Jarrod Cunningham looks like a kid I grew up with, as does Johnny Sibilly’s with Lil Nas X. Since we’ll soon be able to create children with two male parents’ genetic material, these offspring may be among us sooner than we think.
Recall when CLONING was all the rage?
Its too bad genetics don’t work this way. Too often the traits of an unattractive grandparent pop up and ruin the fantasy ending up with an average looking human.
Really, looking average is so last century. Funny comment, something to think about.
Precisely. And you only need look at the offspring of a few famously attractive celebrities to see how Mother Nature can be a bitch.
this is so true recessive genes can pop up & ruin everything. but damn these fake kids are so pretty. damn! ai apps really make you wonder.
fun, interesting article.
Now repeat the article, but instead of faces, substitute penises.
This reeks of West Virginia. Cue the Deliverance soundtrack please.
Deliverance was set in Georgia
Right, Marjorie was in this film. Thanks.
because weird inbred-looking offspring only occur in poor rural states?
one need only look at the tr*mp clan to disprove that myth
That imaginary, tuxedoed young hottie is the best thing to come out of Billy Eichner & Luke Macfarlane’s Bros.
Normally, two attractive parents do make an attractive child. You need to add some ugliness to the mix – like ying and yang splicing.
soooo the takeaway from this story is that FaceApp is only capable of making twinks, i guess…?
Other than Gus and the other Olympian who are these people?
Momma always said, looks don’t last but cooking and cleaning sure do!
