Although the odds of a lady of African background giving birth to a white child are one-in-a-million, this Nigerian woman has given birth to two!

Catherine Howarth is of Nigerian descent, but her first son, Jonah, was born with white skin and blue eyes. Despite the fact that Catherine’s husband, Richard, is an Englishman of Caucasian descent, it is still a rare case for her to have a white baby, as black skin genes are generally dominant.

“No one has heard of a black mom having two white babies one after the other. When I had Jonah he was so white both Richard and I thought the midwife had given us the wrong child,” said Catherine.

What a great surprise it was when Catherine became pregnant with another baby, and she’s just as white as her brother, and has blue eyes too!

“When Jonah was born, a genetic specialist said he was a one-in-a-million baby,” Catherine told the Daily Mail. “He said it was extraordinary with my African background that I’d had a child with blue eyes and pale skin.”

“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,” said Catherine.

The proud mother of two notes that for most people, it’s not every day that they’d see a mother of African background having two white kids of her own. Catherine said: “Each time doctors and midwives have all commented on our babies’ amazing coloring. People often get confused when they meet me with the children for the first time. You can see them doing a double take, wondering if I am their mom.”

She added: “I do get tired of being stopped in the street by people asking if I’m the nanny. People seem to find it hard to understand how I could give birth twice to white children.”

Whilst the reason for this rare case to occur is not entirely clear, Catherine did make an educated guess: “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.”.
