Okay, before y’all come for me in the comments, let me say it now: I’m just reporting the news. I saw this article first on the Daily Maill, and decided to share it here.

Here’s the Scoop:

Catherine Howarth, who is of Nigerian heritage and her white husband welcomed their son, Noah, into the world 3 years ago.

According to the article, Catherine stated:

‘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.’

‘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.

‘He calculated the possibility of it happening again was less than one in a million.

Then she had her daughter, Sophia:

Catherine stated:

When I had Jonah he was so white both Richard and I thought the midwife had given us the wrong child. But if anything, having Sophia has been even more of a shock because we were sure it couldn’t happen twice.

‘I was stunned when I saw her blue eyes and light skin.’

According to Colleen Lynch, a Molecular Geneticist:

‘It is likely there is a a white gene somewhere in the woman’s remote ancestry and due to an evolutionary throwback – known as atavism – this trait has suddenly reappeared.’

This family is from the UK and I have one question: Do you all not have biracial people across the pond? These children look unequivocally biracial, and I have seen plenty of families that look just like this. I’m perplexed as to why she think she’s the only woman in the world with children who look more white than black?


Well Hello! My name is Lisa and you’ve stumbled upon my own little corner of the world. I’m a lipstick-loving, high heel junkie, mom, and wife. When I’m not here bringing you the latest in beauty, fashion, hot topics, and bits and pieces of my life with my family, you can find me over on youtube swatching lipsticks and sharing my latest natural hairstyles. Make sure you also follow me on Instagram and Snapchat under my brand name Lisa A La Mode. I’m a real person. I promise.

  1. I agree. They look pretty biracial to me :/…
    Also, I read an article somewhere which said black people have the most diverse gene pool out of all other races (not sure how true this is, have to revisit it), and with that in mind I figured she may not necessarily have the genes for white peeps because of an ancestor somewhere in the family tree but because these genes already reside within her genome but they’re deactivated (and got activated for some reason) . But all in all the kids look like alot of biracial kids I’ve seen….

    1. She looks like an igbo and they have very diverse genes. Some look as white as her kids – without mixing. Ive seen some igbo kids so light skin that the only way you would know they are african is by the hair. Africa is so diverse!

  2. These are mixed race & will never pass for white. Her husband is white it’s not rocket science. She’s an idiot, God help them kids. Let her be proud of her mixed race babies. I’d be more impressed with her ‘ claim’ to fame of her husband was black!

  3. Hello!!!! Their Father is a WHITE Man!!! And that’s not how Black Girl Magic Works. Wow!!! This chick is a couple hamburgers short of s happy meal.

  4. This chick wants everyone back home to know she has the lightest prettiest chilluns because she suffers from colorist like a lot of us. Poor thing. Not news.

  5. Poor lady doesn’t know that every race comes from black women. We produce all shades. Sad she doesn’t know her history and had to have an ignorant doctor tell her she had a white gene in her history.
