Black Couple Gives Birth To White Baby! How Is This Possible?

The striking dissimilarity got the parents asking, ‘Is this really our child?’

It’s a miracle birth even doctors are pondering! Black couple Francis and Arlette Tshibangu knew they were having a second child when they entered the delivery room at the Leicester Royal Infirmary. But they didn’t expect to walk out with a white baby with blonde hair!

Baby Daniel Tshibangu, now 11-weeks-old, came as a big surprise for the couple — in more ways than one! According to the Daily Mail, dad Francis, 28, claims it was a jaw-dropping experience when doctors placed his white son in his arms for the first time.

“‘I was too stunned to speak and I could see the doctors looking at each other, thinking the baby couldn’t be mine,” explains the Congo-born dad.

Even though the couple already have a black son, Seth, 2, the super-shocked daddy says he never once suspected cheating on his wife’s part.

“Arlette and I looked at each other and smiled and I knew he was. I have been with my wife for three years and there was never a question of infidelity, but seeing his white skin was a surprise to say the least,” Francis claims.

Though he’s not an albino, doctors believe baby Daniel has a slight genetic mutation — hence the skin discoloration.

Still, his mommy and daddy think it has something to do with family roots, stemming back to Arlette’s great-great-great-grandmother. Rumors have it that she also gave birth to a white baby, but as Francis explains, “That was six generations ago and we don’t even know if that was true.”

Even though Daniel’s skin color is a strange phenomenon, his parents say the most important thing is their son is happy and healthy!
