Unless the mother has Saint DNA the little rascal is likely to be an ass hole like his dad.

Here is hoping the child doesn't turn out to be as big of a fool of an air head like his daddy is. How do snide, snarky, nasty people become so rich? And then not donate half of their wealth to education or medicine for the world? They never think of that.
