Um, yeah, this is a little creepy…
The Ingham Family are actually selling their fans a doll version of their four-month-old son Jace and the internet is a little creeped out by it all.
Louise Pentland Speaks Out About Chris Ingham Allegations
Basically, The Inghams are a family of YouTubers made up of Dad Chris, Mum Sarah and their kids – Isabelle, Esmé, Isla and Jace.
They all share wholesome vlogs on YouTube and have 1.2 million subscribers. However, last year, Chris was forced to deny allegations that he had been sending teenage fans inappropriate "sexual" text messages.

Family is EVERYTHING!! No matter what. 💖 treasure those around you always. I’m so thankful for my family. #newborn #newbornphotography #newbornbaby #newbornbabies #newbornbabyboy #baby #babyboy #photography #photographer #photoshoot #photooftheday #hellodarlingphotography #babies #babiesofinstagram #babieswithstyle #babiesbabiesbabies #kids #kidsofinstagram #instababies #babiesofinsta #jaceingham #instagram #instagram_kids #instagramkids #isabelleingham #esmeingham #islaingham #inghamsisters #sistergoals #sistersquad @hellodarlingphotography
The Inghams posted a video titled, "WE HAVE A VERY SPECIAL SECRET TO TELL - HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT!" on their YouTube channel on July 19 and revealed that they had created a life-like doll to look just like their son in collaboration with doll shop Mary Shortle.
Baby Jace (the doll one, not the real one) comes with a shawl, nappies, birth certificate and even three outfits with one designed by Esmé. The price ranges from a pricey £279 to £344 and fans that snap up their very own baby Jace doll will be invited down to the Mary Shortle shop for a tea party with The Ingham Family, where they'll get to meet Jace IRL.
Watch the video here.
"We are beyond excited to be working with the lovely Mary Shortle on this beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, strictly limited edition baby Jace," Sarah said in the video. "This was made to represent Jace when he was two weeks old, similar to the age in the photo that you will receive on the birth certificate if you buy one of these beautiful baby Jace dolls.
"I can't believe how like him it is. It's exactly the same. Especially when Jace has his hat on, it's so cute. This is little Jace and there's going to be 250 of these made. That's all. Once they're gone, they're gone."
People couldn't fathom why anyone would want to do or buy this and accused the family of exploiting their youngest child.

FYI reborn babies aren’t weird to me... It’s selling one that’s a replica of your own child that I’m finding hard to understand. Expecially when Chris ingham is still not clear of his predator allegations..— Petty Paige (@PaigeChristieUK) July 24, 2019

Chris ingham, a YouTuber who came under fire last year for sending sexual messages to teenage girls, has created a doll replica of his 4 month old baby to sell to strangers. Someone tell me that I’m not alone in thinking that that’s totally wrong...— Louise Brett (@Weezi) July 25, 2019
