Baby Born With Bright Red Hair After Mom Eats Cheetos Through Pregnancy

(This is not Emilia and Janson's baby. This is a random creative commons baby.)

A wee ginger baby made international headlines when the family joked that he got his bright red hair from all the Flamin' Hot Cheetos his mom, Emilia Jackson, ate during her pregnancy. She estimates it was over 300 individual bags. 

"Throughout my pregnancy, flaming hot Cheetos were all I ever wanted. I'd wake my boyfriend (Janson Correa) up in the middle of the night to go get me some Cheetos, because the cravings were so intense."

The mum, from Washington in the US, said: "My boyfriend is half Portuguese and Hawaiian, while I'm half African-American and Norwegian.

"So, to see him come out with red hair my partner sort of looked at me and laughed, like 'do we have something to talk about?'

"Everyone says that it's because I ate so many Cheetos that I turned his hair red."  (The Mirror)

Emilia and Jackson liked the look of the milk bath pregnancy shoots, but she says she's too awkward for that and it wouldn't fit her personality. So instead, she did a Flamin' Hot Cheetos bath. For the record, it took 15 family sized bags of Cheetos and Emilia says the clean-up was a nightmare. 

And Emilia is off the Cheetos, for now, while she's breastfeeding. But as soon as the baby is weened, it's Flamin' Hot Cheetos all day err'day.

NOTE: People get that the whole red hair because of the Cheetos thing is a joke, right? I'm legit worried maybe some people don't get it.
