Ebony and her husband already had a son in the family when they found out that the woman was in a position again. Of course, the couple experienced great joy, the pregnancy proceeded well, without problems, so everyone was happy. 9 months later, baby Matthew was born.
The midwife who delivered the baby involuntarily screamed when she saw the newborn, which scared the parents very much. But not only the midwife was surprised, all the doctors who were in the ward were speechless.
And the thing is that a dark-skinned married couple had a baby with bright red hair. When the parents saw their son, at first they could not believe that this was their child.
But parents’ surprise is not the biggest problem. The misunderstanding began when the relatives saw Matthew. Almost everyone immediately began to accuse Ebony of cheating on her husband and having a child with another man. There were also those who convinced the couple that the baby had been replaced in the maternity hospital.
Desperate and tired of such pressure, the parents decided to take a kinship test and it turned out that Matthew was the son of Ebony and her husband. It also happened that on a walk the police stopped a couple and interrogated them, thinking that they had stolen a child. It was mentally hard and difficult. However, the couple did not give up, they supported each other, loved their children and it all helped them in those difficult times.
Now Matthew has grown up, he is 6 years old. He is a very cheerful and active child. He learned not to pay attention to the sidelong glances of others and inappropriate comments of passers-by. The boy has the best and closest friend — his brother Adam. The guys are very friendly. One day, to support his brother, Adam asked his parents to paint him red.
The most interesting thing is that Ebony and her husband did not have red-haired people in their family, but genetics gave them a real surprise.
According to research, red-haired children are born to parents who have a mutation of the MC1R gene. The secret is that this gene causes cells to produce a red type of melanin called pheomelanin.
