Everyone, lay off Dan Marino. So he's got a love child. Who doesn't these days?
Man + random woman = love child is an equation that's deeply rooted in the annals of human history. Going all the way back to the nation's founding, love children came, and love children went. Thomas Jefferson had six. Then, Grover Cleveland fathered a love child during his first presidential campaign in 1892.
One would think the creation of contraceptives would winnow the number of love children. Think again. A good love child is a difficult thing to stop. Especially, it seems, for egomaniacal men like Dan Marino, et al.
Still, if the history of love children is any guide, the gossip plaguing Marino will soon diminish. And it may happen so quickly that people may soon be surprised to learn that Marino actually even has a love child.
How do we know?
BECAUSE IT HAPPENS EVERY TIME.
Behold, the four most shocking love children we forgot all about. STUPID US.
1. Clint Eastwood
Apparently, Clint Eastwood has himself a love child. Way back when, in the Paleozoic era, when Eastwood was capable of sexual intercourse and was married to an actress named Maggie Johnson, he pulled a fast one on her. He delayed having children with her for 15 years while fathering a child with another woman.
Bam! Clintwood style.
