Looks like one of the planet's craziest dynasties is ensuring that it'll be around to entertain/horrify future generations: Kim Jong Un, that baby-faced dictator who is said to have fathered a daughter late last year, reportedly has another kid on the ground. Chosun Ilbo reports by way of a Beijing source that he sired another daughter in 2010, and that the mother of this child likely wasn't wife Ri Sol Ju, though the pair are thought to have married in 2009.

"Ri Sol Ju performed on stage in 2010 as a member of the Unhasu Orchestra when Kim Jong Un became the father of his first child," the source says, adding that it would be "unthinkable" to see a pregnant first lady onstage. Awkward. Kim's older brother, Kim Jong Chol, apparently had a child in 2010 as well—a son—a family baby boom that Chosun says inspired a wave of European imports: It reports the regime dropped huge sums last year on luxe Swiss and German baby goods.
