A black mother who gave birth to a million-to-one, white, blue-eyed baby boy has stunned doctors by having a second white child.

Financial analyst Catherine Howarth, 35, who is of Nigerian heritage, believed the rare recessive white gene that resulted in son Jonah, three, being completely white would not strike a second time.
So she was stunned when the midwife handed her daughter Sophia and she was as white as her big brother.

The mum from Milton Keynes, Bucks, believes she is the only black mother in the world to have given birth to two white, blue-eyed children.
She said said: 'When Jonah was born, a genetic specialist said he was a one-in-a-million baby. He said it was extraordinary with my African background that I'd had a child with blue eyes and pale skin.

The husband is white so and if the husband"s gene is extremely higher than that of the woman, I think it's possible
