Black Mother Who Gave Birth To A White, Blue-Eyed Baby Boy Shocks Doctors By Having A Second White Child.
A black mother who gave birth to a million-to-one, white, blue-eyed baby boy has stunned doctors by having a second white child.
Financial analyst Catherine Howarth, 35, who is of Nigerian heritage, believed the rare recessive white gene that resulted in son Jonah, three, being completely white would not strike a second time.
So she was stunned when the midwife handed her daughter Sophia and she was as white as her big brother.
She said said: ‘When Jonah was born, a genetic specialist said he was a one-in-a-million baby. He said it was extraordinary with my African background that I’d had a child with blue eyes and pale skin.
