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!"

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