Have You Seen You Mother, Baby?

Some of my people and their mothers. I know, I'm a creeper.

Four generations of Cher's family: her grandmother, Cher, Chaz, and Cher's mother.
John, Julia, and Andy Warhola. Andy would later go by just "Warhol". Andy made an experimental film of her, Mrs. Warhol, in 1966.
Ella van Heemstra Ruston, with daughter Audrey Ruston (Hepburn).
"I can really take no credit for any talent that Audrey may have. If it's real talent, it's God-given. I might as well be proud of a blue sky, or the paintings in the Flemish exhibition at the Royal Academy." -Ella van Heemstra Ruston

OH MY GOSH I love this! It's so incredibly sweet to see these people as little babies in their mother's arms, before they were rock legends and sex symbols and all that.

It is heartbreaking to look at these photos of the sweet little children or the grown adults with their mothers, and know that so many of these people smoked pot and had premarital sex, etc. How would their mothers feel about that if they could see into the future and know that their little darlings would grow up to do that? Take Keith Richards and Mick Jagger, for example. Here they are standing there with their mothers who must be so proud of their sons, yet they all used drugs and slept with groupies, etc. That is terrible. And Pattie Boyd used drugs, but here she is a sweet little girl in the photo. The list goes on and on.

No Bob Dylan!

Close, but no cigar.

It is not Bob but a niece of his father Abe Zimmerman's that is said to be the child.
