A new AI app is sweeping the app store, sparking “baby fever” in a generation known for low parenthood and marriage rates. Meet “Remini,” a photo-enhancing app that has been around since 2019 but is currently reporting a 15 million monthly download rate. The recent addition of unique AI image creation is putting it at the top of charts, making its $10 weekly subscription a hot commodity.
The latest feature added just weeks ago allows users to create realistic images of themselves in various life stages: dressed in a wedding gown, pregnant, or cradling a child that closely resembles them and their partner.
The app’s ability to generate ready-made images of a potential future self is intriguing young adults who had not previously considered having kids, now able to “see” themselves in these roles vividly. The AI-generated child, lovingly captured in their arms and soft-smiling into the camera, has ignited a newfound desire in many millennials, reshaping their aspirations and even redirecting career paths to include thoughts of a family.
According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, Remini’s impact goes beyond mere excitement. One woman who tried the app confessed: “Feelings of motherhood rushed over me,” and she now finds herself more inclined to pursue family life.
