Baby Dren's First Photo Album

If you haven't seen the family's home movies of Dren -- now in theaters under the title "Splice" -- you might not want to leaf through the album just yet...

She was cute from the moment she poked her little head out...

This is a picture of her mother, back when she was a newborn. Can you see the family resemblance?

Here's Dren's bio-Mommy and obstetrician on the day she was born! The doctor was so excited to see her he forgot to say if she was a boy or a girl. He just kept shouting, "It's alive! It's alive! It's alive!"

Her cousin Bunny, who lived in London, used to like to sleep on a dish when she was little. Adorable!

Oh, my. Remember her androgynous phase? She kept saying she was a "Smashing Pumpkin."
