She was completely stunned when she gave birth to her second child and discovered she was also completely white.
According to her, when she gave birth to her first child, the genetic specialist said it was almost impossible for her as an African to have blue eyed child “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. He calculated the possibility of it happening again was less than one in a million. So when Sophia was born with white skin and blue eyes I was more than taken back with shock. It seems the odds of it happening twice are millions-to-one. No-one has heard of a black mum having two white babies one after the other.”
Catherine who is a Nigerian says she has no knowledge of 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.’ Despite the initial shock, the couple are delighted with their miracle children.”
