Nigerian Mother Births White Baby A Second Time

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, 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.
.

The mum from Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, believes she is the only black mother in the world to have given birth to two white, blue-eyed children. Her husband Richard, 37, an engineer, is completely white.
.
Catherine said: ‘When I had Jonah he was so white both Richard and I thought the midwife had given us the wrong child. But if anything, having Sophia has been even more of a shock because we were sure it couldn’t happen twice.
.
Catherine is of Nigerian descent with no white genes in her family. ‘My parents were from Nigeria and as far back as anyone can recall my family have all been black.
.
‘The only explanation seems to be there must have been a white gene in my family that has remained dormant for years until now. And now it seems to be very dominant.’
.
Dad Richard said: ‘While it is interesting how the genes have aligned themselves, it doesn’t matter to us what colour our children’s skin is. We just feel incredibly lucky to have a beautiful son and daughter. Having healthy and happy kids is all that matters.’
