Black Parents Have "Extraordinary" White Baby

Black parents have "extraordinary" white baby.  Ben and Angela of Woolwich, South Londen, both of African American heritage gave birth to a beautiful, curly haired blonde baby girl named Nmachi which means "Beauty of God" in Nigerian.  Nmachi made her debut after a csearean section in Queen Mary's Hospital in Sidcupon.  Doctors are as baffled by Nmachi's white skin as her folks.  Specialists have determined that Nmachi is not an albino and genetics experts have been called in to explain the little girl's race.


Professor Bryan Sykes, from Oxford University and the UK's lead Human Genetics expert, rendered Nmachi "extraordinary" and stated that "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.  This might be the case where there is a lot of genetic mixing, as in Afro-Caribbean populations.  But in Nigeria there is little mixing."  Dr. Sykes furthered that Ben and Angela would have had to contribute "some form of white ancestry" to Nmachi in order to produce white offspring, and stated that a gene mutation was most likely the cause of her skin color.


Angela stated that the baby is "beautiful and I love her.  Her colour doesn't matter.  She's a miracle baby."
