A Family Affair

Just over a year ago, I brought you news of Dublin’s love children with that feisty red-head Mara: the “other woman.”  In her bid to compete for the affections of the Astraean men, Mara couldn’t let Celeste hog all the lime light of celebrity so she and one of her sons with Dublin appear in a National TV ad for the Wubba toy by Kong.

Keep your eyes peeled at 14 seconds where Mara and Kurt can be seen running through a mountain meadow toward the camera, jockeying for possession of the Wubba:

High off his own recent fame and possessed of the same taste in women as his father, Mercury recently spent a week with Mara.  After a few awkward pickup lines, some tentative overtures of lust, embarrassing comparisons with his father, and the line “Mrs. Mara, you’re trying to seduce me!….. Aren’t you?” Mercury rang in his second birthday and became a man.

We’ll know in a few weeks if he’s to be a father, but despite his best intentions, even the adorable Mercury was no match for the allure of a tennis ball in the eyes of Mara:
