|New scientific research has revealed that women of a certain age are hormonally programmed to determine a baby's 'cuteness'.
Researchers from the University of St Andrews found that women determine how cute a baby is by features such as chubby cheeks, a large forehead, big round eyes and a button nose.
These features were exaggerated in computer-generated images of a baby and placed alongside a photo of a baby whose 'cute' features had not been amplified.
It was found that women aged 19 to 51 were acutely sensitive to the varying degrees of cuteness between the baby pictures.
