Blender developer Nathan Letwory [JesterKing] became a father for the second time earlier today when his daughter RafaÃ«lla was born at 14:42 in Finland. RafaÃ«lla weighs 2820g and is 50,5cm tall. Both she and her mother are doing great.
We're happy to report that RafaÃ«lla looks significantly less grumpy than her big brother Rasmus [JesterPrince], who is reported to have developed a passion for human beat-boxing and (duh) Blender!
Congrats to Finland!!!!!!

Way to go! Nice to see an intelligent person reproducing for once instead of an idiot who forgets to wear a condom.
Congrats Nathan! :)
Thanks to all!
What I did was take two metaballs, filled them with some dna-code, then squished them together. To make things easier I converted that into a mesh, then did just a whole lot of sculpting. I got lost with the multires and subdiv levels, but I guess in 9 months it got pretty high.
The lazy modeller I am, I didn't do any retopo, nor normal/texture/AO-baking, you see the endresult in her full created glory. I used autoskeleton feature to do the rigging, and there was some autoanimation too. At least, after the 3d-printing everything just started working automagically!
jesterPrince is a lovely boy, I'm all excited to be now in for a second treat of growing babies! I'll be on paternity leave from Monday on, a whole whopping 3 weeks (I love you Finland!) Of course I'll be active as always, just doing more of that nappy-changing and feeding and all that again. w00t.
Congratulations to you and your family!!
Wow she is so cute. Congratulations!
yep, is so cute :) Congratulations
Pure awesomeness. Congratulations! :D
No bug !
Who cares? Sorry, but I don't give a fuck for!
Congratulations to you and your family, Nathan, and welcome to the world, little Princess. :)
@WTF - I'm glad you don't gave one 9-ish months ago either :Â° Otherwise this wouldn't have been my child, but yours? :O
Congratulations, your plan to take over the world has been furthered by one minion.
I'm kinda remembered of the "you're blendering too much" blenderartists thread when you start explaining how she came to be.... Bet it's going to be a lot of fun the day they start asking about the flowers and the bees... and get an answer about a python going in a blender.
Besides the amount of moddeling I think you over-did the cuteness on this one.
Congratulations, May be in good health.
New Generation of Blender users!
Best wishes to you and your family
Congratz and best wishes from Canada!
The little princess look very cute, I'm thinking about the new realeses in respect with the anterior build ;).
You and your wife have developed a really nice render engine, 'cuz both of your creations are very good.

Cheers from Argentina
Congrats and all the best... or in hungarian: "Isten Ã‰ltesse sokÃ¡ig!"
Which render engine did you use? What is the meshes poly count? Where can I get the .blend? Yet another example of how Blender beats the competition! (yes, I know it's a real baby).
Congrats JesterFamily! :D
she's beautifull. we all hope she grows with health
she's beautifull. we all hope she grows with health
love and money.
She looks so lifelike! Can we have a tutorial?
she looks much like Nathan
Awesome modeling and skin shader, the SSS really raised it another level. Luckily there's Alt-B, or was she on another layer? No, that was a fractal script :-P Dude, congratulations! Sure will be a great kid with a fun dad!
Congratulations Nathan! She's adorable! All the best to you and your family :)
Will she develop a passion for singing and (duh again) Blender? :)
Beatboxing is one of my favorite hobbies.
Congrats! Will you be releasing to code behind this project as open source?
Congrats on your baby daughter...
