Somebody's having gender issues...

This one's not exactly a grammar mistake, but it's a big (and funny) mistake nonetheless. This article talks about Gwyneth Paltrow's second son, Moses. The problem is, Moses is actually her first son. Moses is her second child, but her first son. Apple is Gwyneth's first child, and Apple is most definitely a daughter--not a son.

MAGGIE, who sent in this picture, also notes: "They didn't even need a fact checker to prevent this one; all they needed to do was actually read the article cited as their source (the link is directly below the article), which had that particular fact correct. Sheesh!"

Seriously, doesn't this publication pay somebody to make sure that boneheaded mistakes like this one don't happen? (If not, they really should start doing so...)

Thanks to MAGGIE for spotting this little mix-up!
