This is the black couple who have amazed medical experts after their baby daughter was born with white skin, blue eyes and blonde hair.
Benjamin and Angela Ihegboro's daughter, Nmachi, has flummoxed genetic experts who are unable to explain why she looks they way she does.

Doctors say the white-skinned newborn is not an albino.

The blonde, blue-eyed girl's Nigerian parents say they don't know of any white ancestry in either of their families.

'EXTRAORDINARY BIRTH'

Genetics professors expressed amazement at the birth last night.
'The birth is extraordinary,' said Professor Bryan Sykes, head of human genetics at Oxford University.

'In mixed race humans, the lighter variant of skin tone may come out in a child and this can sometimes be startlingly different to the skin of the parents.'
Professor Sykes said both parents would have needed 'some form of white ancestry.'
He added: 'The hair is extremely unusual. Even many blonde children don't have blonde hair like this at birth.
'The rules of genetics are complex and we still don't understand what happens in many cases.
'This might be a case where there is a lot of genetic mixing, as in Afro-Caribbean populations.
'But in Nigeria there is little mixing.'


The British couple are both of Igbo Nigerian origin and have dark skin.

Father Ben Ihegboro, 44, a customer services adviser, admitted that when he saw the baby he exclaimed 'What the flip?' before joking: 'Is she mine?'

Doctors at Queen Mary hospital in Sidcup insist that Nmachi - whose name means 'beauty of God' in the couple's native Igbo language - is not an albino.
Her stunned parents, who already have two black children, just 'sat and stared' at their white baby when she arrived, they told the Sun last night.
'We both just sat there after the birth staring at her,' said Mr Ihegboro.

Mum Angela said: 'She is beautiful, a miracle baby.'

Despite jokingly asking whether he was the father, Mr Igegboro said: 'Of course she is mine.

'My wife is true to me. Even if she hadn't been, the baby wouldn't have looked like that!'

Pale skin genes can skip generations but neither Ben nor Angela Ihegboro - who only moved to Britain five years ago - know of any white heritage in either of their families.

'She doesn't look like an albino child anyway,' Mr Ihegboro said.

'Not like the ones I have seen back in Nigeria or in books. She just looks like a healthy white baby.
'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.'
The couple also have an older daughter, Dumebi, two, and a son, Chisom, four.
Mr Ihegboro said the couple's son was even more confused than them.

He added: 'Our boy keeps coming to look at his sister and sits down looking puzzled.

'We are a black family. Suddenly he has a white sister.

'But all that matters is that she is healthy and that we love her.'

Skin colour is believed to be determined by up to seven different genes working together.

If a woman is of mixed race, her eggs will usually contain a mixture of genes coding for both black and white skin. Similarly, a man of mixed race will have a variety of different genes in his sperm.

When these eggs and sperm come together, they will create a baby of mixed race.

But, very occasionally, the egg or sperm might contain genes coding for one skin colour. If both the egg and sperm contain all white genes, the baby will be white. And if both contain just the versions necessary for black skin, the baby will be black.

In 2006 a British mixed race couple gave birth to twin girls, one of whom was white and the other black.

Both Kylie and her partner Remi Horder, 17, are of mixed race. Their mothers are both white and their fathers are black.

But the chances of the twin girls having completely different skin colours was one in a million.

According to the Multiple Births Foundation, baby Kian must have inherited the black genes from both sides of the family, whilst Remee inherited the white ones.

I wonder if either of the babies had the things u look for in a newborn? Like behind the ears and stuff.............now for the rest of their lives they r gonna have to explain this. I would like to see when they get older and how they look.

i dont know about the blonde hair blu eye thing, but i know some straight up africans who were born looking white - light skin as fuck, basically looking white. even when i was born, i looked like a white baby.

the baby might grow up to be straight dark skin nigerian scam expert.

Holy Shit. Zeus strikes again. Unless she's a whore my quasi religion is validated. Pro Jupiter!

I bet that girls going to have super powers. This shit happens all the time in mythology. Sometimes God fucks a woman the night her husband does and the twins are only half siblings.

This is how Jesus was born.

i know nigerians have a high rate of albinism, but this isn't even and albino, it's a straight up white person. they said only 7 genes determine race, which is not a lot AT-ALL.

its cause they have latent 'light skinned genes' in them because somewhere down the line they had light skinned ancestors and more then likely several light skinned ancestors.

but this is a full blown white person and there was almost no mixing of races in nigeria at all.
