A British 44 black customer services adviser dad, was shocked when hi’s new baby girl made her first appearance in this world, since his newborn little girl Nmachi Ihegboro (name means “Beauty of God” in the couple’s homeland of Nigeria) is WHITE.
Ben (Nmachi’s father), said yesterday how he was so shocked when his baby was born than he even joked: “Is she mine?”
“I’m sure she’s my kid … I just don’t know why she’s blonde.” We both just sat there after the birth staring at her.”
Nmachi’s mother, Angela, who is 35 and from Woolwich, South London, said that “She’s beautiful – a miracle baby.”
Ben added: “Actually, the first thing I did was look at her and say, ‘What the flip?’”
But as the baby’s older brother and sister – both black – crowded round the “little miracle” at their home in South London, Ben declared: “Of course she’s mine.”
British genetics experts are perplex with the little blonde baby because neither Ben nor wife Angela have ANY mixed-race family history and the experts have said the little Nmachi is not an albino.
Pale genes skipping generations before cropping up again could have explained the baby’s appearance.
Ben also stressed: “My wife is true to me. Even if she hadn’t been, the baby still wouldn’t look like that.
“We both just sat there after the birth staring at her for ages – not saying anything.”
Doctors at Queen Mary’s Hospital in Sidcup – where Angela, from nearby Woolwich, gave birth – have told the parents Nmachi is definitely not an albino girl.
Ben, who came to Britain with his wife five years ago and works for South Eastern Trains, said: “She doesn’t look like an albino child anyway – not like the ones I’ve seen back in Nigeria or in books. She just looks like a healthy white baby.”
He went on: “My mum is a black Nigerian although she has a bit fairer skin than mine.
“But we don’t know of any white ancestry. We wondered if it was a genetic twist.
“But even then, what is with the long curly blonde hair?”
