Taye Diggs Born With 12 Fingers

Taye Diggs (Private Practice) could have been Hollywood’s most famous mutant but his mother ended that dream at birth. According to Taye, he came out of with 12 fingers, an extra digit on each hand. His parents told them to chop off the fingers when doctors asked whether or not they wanted to leave it.

“I know you guys are thinking that I’m kidding. As a child I had an extra digit on each hand, and I remember my mom told me, they (the doctors) asked her if she wanted to let the digit grow or to remove it, and they removed it – but I could have been really handy.” StarPulse

Just as well. It’s really hard to give people the finger when you have an even number of them. Plus, finding the right pair of gloves would be a real b*tch.
