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."
I've heard of this happening before. Genetics is ongoing from parent to child over generations. It's never-ending, really. It is possible that even eight, ten, or twelve generations back there was a white parent and that the genes have been carried forward.
There is allways the chance that one of the ancestors were white or part white. Many people have genetics from races that are unknown to them and can show up many generations down the line.
Well did they have a paternity test? If it's the husband's then I gotta think that is some wild genetic coding that went on with that baby.
I dont know about that one..But a friend of mine married and had a coloured baby ...her husband thought she was having an affair but it was proved that the gene was passed down from her great grandfather who was black.
