The genetic lottery

Looking at the pic of Amanda Holden in the Daily Mail today, with her husband and kids, it struck me that the whole family is very good looking.
I don’t like Amanda (although sorry to hear she’s broken her leg) and her husband isn’t my cup of tea, but they’re admittedly both attractive and their daughters have clearly struck the genetic lottery. With two such good looking parents it’s no surprise they’re both very pretty girls.
Having said that, I’d still rather not have Amanda for a mum and that my own parents were very ordinary.
I’m sorry I can’t do links so will add a pic instead!

That photo has at least 3 filters on it. Am not convinced they did win the genetic lottery - but am sure their parents’ money definitely helped their looks. Anyone can be beautiful when they can get all the dental care / teen facials / hair and make up / styling they need at the drop of a hat.

Well I think I've got to say with Amanda's previous track record for husbands and partners, she's definately not hung up on the ''must be good looking' criteria. Which is fair play to her I guess.

Plenty of average looking people have beautiful children.

And plenty of beautiful people have average looking children.

One of my biggest regrets is that I didn’t have the opportunity to have DC with someone better looking.

Blimey! You only had children with your husband because you didn't get a chance with anyone else?

What a pointless post. You must have really low self esteem. The husband looks like a crab and A-Ho is like a plastic blow up doll!

Pre surgery Amanda is (in my opinion) a very plain woman. Could never understand the fuss about her at all.

Being good husband and father material isn’t the same as having good genes. In terms of genetic material I wouldn’t have picked DH as a father for my child. It would have been better if I’d got pregnant to some good looking deadbeat then DH became the step-parent.

Look at her face floating above her orange neck

They are all dressed up in the picture. Have a look at other pictures of the family.

I personally don't think Amanda Holden is attractive, or her husband. Beautiful girls though.

My DS is a lot better looking than exh and I, although obviously I'm biased!

I don't think any of them are astonishingly beautiful. It is generally suggested that very rich people are more attractive because they have the money to spend on healthy food, dieticians, cosmetics, personal trainers etc.

I know a very wealthy family that have a particular interest, something that makes them unusual & they are photographed a lot on insta, videoed, press etc.

Whilst their children are perfectly attractive I was stunned to see one daughter and her mother in the flesh recently, she looked nothing like she appears in their publicity shots and videos.

I was left wondering what they do to appear so much better looking & glossier? They look like different people.

I.think the girls are pretty enough , but no prettier than lots of other young girls and as others have said money helps .

The real win in the genetic lottery is not getting cancer until you're past 70. Add to that a mild auto immune disorder for fighting parasites, AB+ blood group to fend off dysentery, freedom from congenital heart failure and being really good at hiding from the enemy snipers. My grandfather had all of these. Apart from the blood group and the snipers, so do I. My face is about average, but my grandson is stunning.

You’re absolutely right, Disgrace.
Wise words.
