According to science nerds, if you have a big ass, you're the best evolution has to offer.

A recent study at the University of Pittsburgh has been taking deep long looks at your ass and decided that the fatter the butt, the smarter the kid.

Apparently, the particular fat that accumulates in women's butts and thighs (DHA - docosahexaenoic acid) specifically aids in brain development, and women pull from those butt fat reserves when they are breastfeeding, which is prime brain building time. So, it stands to reason that the more brain fat on your butt that can feed your baby, the better the brain your baby is going to get.


We've known for a while that men are subliminally attracted to women's curves because those lady humps denote good odds for procreation, but this is the first proof we've had that the curvier the mom, the brainier the baby could be.

Obviously, how intelligent the mother is also contributes to how smart the baby can be but(t), as per usual, we are too busy looking at asses right now.

I'm no scientist, but based on a cursory search for "celebrities with big butts," science has basically concluded that these 10 celebrities will have the smartest kids:
