A million dollar white baby with stunning blue eyes was born to a Nigerian mother, leaving many people, including the mother, stunned. Even more astonishingly, this mother gave birth to not just one, but two white children with blue eyes! While her spouse is a British Caucasian, Catherine Howarth is of Nigerian heritage. She gave birth to her first kid, Jonah. The birth of two white children is seen as a miracle even though her spouse is British because the dark-skinned gene is frequently quite wealthy.
“Nobody has ever heard of a black mother having two consecutive white babies,” Jonah was so white when I was expecting him that Richard and I thought the midwife had handed us the wrong child, as Catherine tells. However, when Catherine gave birth to a second child, the miracle occurred once more. It was a young girl named Sophia this time, but she was just as white as her brother. Even her blue eyes are the same!
When Jonah was born, a geneticist estimated that he was one in a million newborns, Catherine told the Daily Mail. Given my African heritage, he thought it was unusual that I had a child with blue eyes and pale complexion.
So I was totally surprised when Sophia was born with pale complexion and blue eyes. The likelihood of it occurring twice appears to be one in a million, Catherine added. It may startle people who have never encountered an African-American mother of two white children. Every time she visits the hospital, the midwives and doctors would remark on how beautiful the skin color of her unborn child is.
“People are often confused when they see me with the kids for the first time. You can see them doing a double, wondering if I’m their mother. I get really tired of being stopped on the street by people asking if I have to be a nanny. People seem to find it difficult to understand how I can give birth to white children twice.”
Catherine made an educated guess as to why this was the case, albeit it was still unclear: “My parents are from Nigeria. And as far as anyone can remember, my entire family is black. The only conceivable explanation is that my family must carry a white gene that has lain dormant for a very long time until now. It appears to be highly dominant right now.”
