Genetics experts have been amazed by the birth of a blonde, blue-eyed white baby - to a black couple.
Doctors insist tiny Nmachi is not an albino and neither of the parents has any mixed-race family history.
Dad Ben Ihegboro, 44, a railway customer services adviser, said: "We both just sat there after the birth staring at her for ages - not saying anything.
"The first thing I said was 'What the flip?'."
Nmachi, whose name means Beauty of God in the Nigerian homeland of parents Angela and Ben, was born at Queen Mary's Hospital in Sidcup, Kent.
Doctors there told them she is not an albino.
"She doesn't look like an albino child anyway - not like the ones I've seen back in Nigeria or in books," Ben told The Sun. "She just looks like a healthy white baby."
