Nigerian Couple Give Birth to Blue-Eyed Blonde Hair Baby + Video


This is the black couple who have amazed medical experts after their baby daughter was born with white skin, blue eyes and blonde hair.

Benjamin and Angela Ihegboro’s daughter, Nmachi, has flummoxed genetic experts who are unable to explain why she looks they way she does.

Doctors say the white-skinned newborn is not an albino.

The blonde, blue-eyed girl’s Nigerian parents say they don’t know of any white ancestry in either of their families.

The British couple are both of Igbo Nigerian origin and have dark skin.

Father Ben Ihegboro, 44, a customer services adviser, admitted that when he saw the baby he exclaimed ‘What the flip?’ before joking: ‘Is she mine?’

Doctors at Queen Mary hospital in Sidcup insist that Nmachi – whose name means ‘beauty of God’ in the couple’s native Igbo language – is not an albino.

Her stunned parents, who already have two black children, just ‘sat and stared’ at their white baby when she arrived, they told the Sun last night.

‘We both just sat there after the birth staring at her,’ said Mr Ihegboro.

Mum Angela said: ‘She is beautiful, a miracle baby.’

Despite jokingly asking whether he was the father, Mr Igegboro said: ‘Of course she is mine.

‘My wife is true to me. Even if she hadn’t been, the baby wouldn’t have looked like that!’

Pale skin genes can skip generations but neither Ben nor Angela Ihegboro – who only moved to Britain five years ago – know of any white heritage in either of their families.

‘She doesn’t look like an albino child anyway,’ Mr Ihegboro said.

‘Not like the ones I have seen back in Nigeria or in books. She just looks like a healthy white baby.

‘My mum is a black Nigerian although she has a bit fairer skin than mine. But we don’t know of any white ancestry.

  1. they definitely have some sorta white ancestry that they dont know about.its rare but it does happen, i once read about a white couple who gave birth to a black child when they are both white.when they researched they realised that the had one black ancestor that skipped all the generation apart from theirs that they didnt know about.

    • It's not white ancestory, it is mutations.

      All people came from black people, all these types of varieties are from mutations, mutations in the medical field apply to anything, we're not talking X-men, but real mutations, mutations are those moles you call beauty spots by the side of the lips, and in this case, light skin and other light features.

      Mutations can do this, please believe, it's very possible. There are dark skinned blue-eyed babies in Africa. I think many don't know about it, because it is something which causes too much negative news to the child, so families often try and keep their children away from the news, especially in the depths of Africa.

      Lastly, if children can be born having rare genetic mutations, like their hearts formed the wrong way round, or other mutations where they are one of two in the whole world with the condition, then why is this so impossible.

  2. Omo Abeg the woman should tell her husband the truth where she is been playin hand ball… or the nurse should explain what happened, they baby was switched baby or something fishy.. maybe the husband is in on the joke or road to fame!

  3. I am with "na lie" on this one, everybody should tell the truth and shame the devil! Either that or the hospital will realize their mistake in a few days.

  4. This is actually something new under the sun, if they are sure their baby wasn't switched by the midwife, or that some drunken fertility doctor didn't insert a white egg into her instead of a black, then it is something very new and inexplicable. But we have to rule out the option that she has been cheating on him, even if she has, the baby would be a half caste, not with this Danish blond looks she has.

  5. it's either the woman is playing around or something went wrong in the hospital a will advise the husband to go for a DNA test

  6. Nigerians can be sooo ignorant sometimes… why does it have to be that the woman was cheating. Obviously they have done the paternity test and he's the father… there's probably some white in their bloodline somewhere… after all the missionaries were just quafing igbo babes back in the day anyhow.

    • go and sit down somewhere Ms Bush Girl… there is nothing like white in the bloodline from the days of missionaries.. just thinking along ur lines, why didnt it happen in nigeria previouslly,in whichever family that supposely has white in the bloodline? why did the white trait wait till the family moved to London?

      I am waiting for the day that someone will supposely give birth to a lion or a snake…. I am sure that all u gulible people will believe that too…

    • Nigerians are so ignorant??? what does have to do? why wouldn't he think for at least a second that that is not his baby?

      and btw, they do not have to have any white ancestry at all. Every race has come from the Black race and that is scientically proven. this is a showing of how that happened so many thousands of years ago

    • Come on, it's not a Nigerian thing!! Why are you so quick to generalise, anyone of any race would think that, humans are not conditioned to believe such, adultery is an easier pill to swallow for those who aren't fully aware of how genetics work.


  7. I am a caucasion woman….who happens to be very familiar with different genetic codes…i know this is very possible if the first human up-right sapiens discovered on earth were in Africa from a woman called Luzia who was African and Anthropoligist have proven through science that caucasians infact did come from Africa through a genetic code "mishap" no offense but this is information that is proven to be fact and if we do have these so-called solar storms in the next few years …Africans/ blacks have enough Melatonin in their skin to out live all us caucasians …this is no story this is proof of where all human race comes from ..we are the off-spring of the black people who are mistreated so much…

    • Sidney You are correct…its hard for Caucassions to swallow. This is not the first or the last time this have happen. That only confirms the Mendal’s theory…” you can get the recessive from the dominant but not the dominant from the recessive.” We produced you many years ago and we can produce you now- the story above confirms it.

  8. I have never seen this be4 in my life but if u look at it verty well it could be true becos igbos are normally very fear and this baby could still be a little brown later and while she grows her hair could be tough.

  9. its very true. i have a whit baby too and my husband and i are black, no white ancestry in my line or his. its a mystery and different people have said many things bout me but it doesnt really matter, i'm happy wit my life and i love my daughter alot.

  10. “If our buildings, our highways, and our railroads should be wrecked, we could rebuild them. If our cities should be destroyed, out of the very ruins we could erect newer and greater ones. Even if our armed might should be crushed, we could rear sons who would redeem our power. But if the blood of our White race should become corrupted and mingled with the blood of Africa, then the present greatness of the United States of America would be destroyed and all hope for civilization would be as impossible for a Negroid America as would be redemption and restoration of the Whiteman’s blood which had been mixed with that of the Negro.”
