We’re not sure what the odds are of four people in one family having the same white patch of hair, but we’re pretty sure they’re pretty slim. Still, that’s exactly what happened when little MilliAnna Worthy from Ridgeland, South Carolina, was born. The little girl, now 18 months old, has the same distinctive genetic inheritance as her mother, Brianna, as well as her grandmother and great-grandmother.

The white locks are caused by poliosis, a condition that creates a lack of pigment in the hair and surrounding skin. “We are unsure how far back the hair color and skin discoloration goes as my grandmother was adopted as a child and hasn’t met her biological family,” Brianna told the Daily Mail. “I was hoping she did have it. My younger sister that my mother had a few years after me didn’t get it, so I didn’t know if MilliAnna was going to, but once I had my beautiful baby and they laid her on my chest, and I saw she had it I was so happy.”
