VIDEO: Nigerian parents give birth to white, blue-eyed baby
A black Nigerian couple living in south London was stunned by the birth of a blonde-haired, blue-eyed white baby—and the girl is not an albino!
Nmachi Ihegboro has amazed medical experts because both her parents have no known mixed-race family history. The father even joked that when he saw the child, he got immediate internal questions about whether the baby was his or not.
According to Professor Bryan Sykes, head of Human Genetics at Oxford University, some unknown mutation was the most likely explanation for the infant’s unexpected appearance. He said: “The rules of genetics are complex and we still don’t understand what happens in many cases.”
