British Nmachi Ihegboro has amazed genetics experts who say the little girl is NOT an albino.
Dad Ben, 44, a customer services adviser, admitted: “We both just sat there after the birth staring at her.”
Little ‘miracle’ … Nmachi Ihegboro
Mum Angela, 35, of Woolwich, South London, beamed as she said: “She’s beautiful – a miracle baby.”
Ben told yesterday how he was so shocked when Nmachi was born, he even joked: “Is she MINE?”
However, Ben stressed: “My wife is true to me. Even if she hadn’t been, the baby still wouldn’t look like that.
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?”

Nmachi to sister Dumebi and bruv Chisom yesterday
Yesterday three-day-old Nmachi’s churchgoing mum Angela admitted that she was “speechless” at first seeing her baby girl, who was delivered in a caesarean op.
She said: “I thought, ‘What is this little doll?’
“She’s beautiful and I love her. Her colour doesn’t matter. She’s a miracle baby.
“But still, what on earth happened here?”
Her husband told how their son Chisom, four, was even more confused than them by his new sister.
Ben said: “Our other daughter Dumebi is only two so she’s too young to understand.
“But our boy keeps coming to look at his sister and then sits down looking puzzled.
“We’re a black family. Suddenly he has a white sister.”
Ben continued: “Of course, we are baffled too and want to know what’s happened. But we understand life is very strange.
Queen Mary’s Hospital said: “Congratulations to Angela and her family on the birth of their daughter.”Post published in: News
