Nigerian couple Angela and Ben Ihekboro already had 2 children when she became pregnant. The parents were very surprised, because she had fair skin and hair. She was named Nmachi, which means «beauty from God.»
Ben was especially surprised, but did not accuse his wife of infidelity. In addition to the white color, the girl was very similar to her parents. After much research, doctors have discovered a rare genetic abnormality for both Nigeria.
But this is not the only case, for example, a child with the same anomaly was born in the family of Arlet and Francis from Africa. It turns out that there was already such a case in their family, the great-grandmother of Francis also gave birth to a white child.
According to doctors, it is impossible to detect diseases during pregnancy. This is due to the lack of pigment on which the color of the skin and eyes depends – melanin. There are such cases not only in African regions — one baby has such a fate out of 3,000 ordinary children, but also around the world 1 out of 200 newborns is an albino.
