Parents black, baby blonde and blue-eyed

Dad insists mum was true to him

A black couple in Britain have given birth to a white, blue-eyed, blonde baby, according to British tabloid, The Sun.

The baby named Nmachi Ihegboro has amazed genetics experts who say the little girl is not an albino.

Dad Ben, 44, a customer services adviser, admitted: "We both just sat there after the birth staring at her."

Mum Angela, 35, of Woolwich, South London, was quoted by the paper as saying: "She's beautiful - a miracle baby."

Ben added: "Actually, the first thing I did was look at her and say, 'What the flip?'"

Blue-eyed blonde Nmachi, whose name means "Beauty of God" in the Nigerian couple's homeland, has baffled genetics experts because neither Ben nor wife Angela have any mixed-race family history.

Ben also stressed: "My wife is true to me. Even if she hadn't been, the baby still wouldn't look like that.

"We both just sat there after the birth staring at her for ages - not saying anything."
