Where do they get babies from in movies and TV?

Ever watched a movie or a TV show that just happened to have a cute infant in it, and wonder how the casting directors got them? Are they part of a baby casting list?

Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world, I feel like I can't take it, and my heart is just going to cave in.

I guess parents bring their kids to auditions for parts. They usually use twins

Sometimes the baby is the director or producer's newborn kid. For example, Sofia Coppola is the baby being christened in The Godfather, which was directed by her dad Francis Ford Coppola.

A casting agency places an ad and many willing parents show up ready to get their kids picked for a part in a movie or show.

Works the same for extras…I was one before…so I know how that goes.

They’re bred and raised on an island in the Caribbean owned by Rupert Murdoch. This is also where he raises the sexy blonde Fox News anchors

There are storks. They find these little people in a special cabbage patch. From there, they fly them in.

You asked a pretty question; I've given you the ugly answer.
