    C`mon guys, its genetics.... the gene that should have made the baby`s skin dark was switched or mutated to make the its skin white.

    Well, sometimes white folks have black babies. One couple had twins, one white, one black (YES same father! lolz!) so go figure!

    If she`s not albino, he still wouldn`t be white cause the mother is black, it doesn`t really matter who the father is. Also, she`s blonde, it`s practically impossible for that to happen.

    Once again I would like to highlight the fact that this baby is probably the product of Vitiligo...its real, it happens....And this is probably an example. Vitiligo babies are NOT considered albino. Yet the affliction can effect the eyes, skin color annd hair. Though this seems a very extreme case.

    And Spermbubble...a cure for what? Being human??? Maybe we need a cure for your bigotry

    If each parent had even a distant ancestor who was white, it would allow this to happen because recessive genes can sometimes remain hidden for many generations. It would be extremely unlikely, but it could happen. However, neither parent is aware of white heritage (though there is still a slight possibility of it), so this is less likely to be the case.

    The other thing that could happen is genetic mutation. Blond and red hair both often come in combination with fair skin. It is possible that the child received a genetic mutation that caused hair and skin to be fair. I don`t remember seeing what her eye color is, though, and if that is blue or green, this child simply has the unlikeliest concatenation of genetics.

    It`s rare but has happened before, it`s just a genetic throwback unearthing hidden recessive genes that both the parents had. Basic understanding of genetics shows that it is more than possible, it just requires the right combination of parents who have hidden recessive genes in their DNA and the right genetic ordering of the sperm and egg.

    I think for a baby to have blond hair is really odd.
    I`m a blond, but it didn`t start showing until I was a few months old. I was born with BLACK hair, that slowly started to lighten.

    Its a form of evolution. Africans are starting to turn themselves white to blend in and be more successful in the modern world. Darwin was right!

    Well,something is up with the genetics with the baby that are responsible for production of Melanin in the hair and skin. Not necessarily Albinism but some other disorder. Not very mysterious beyond that. Yep,recessive genes and all that.

    meep, it`s not albino. it says so in the tagline for one, but albinos don`t have colored irises, either. and windy, lots of babies are born blonde. it`s not strange at all.

    She could be a black-albino mix?

    It doesn`t work that way. Albinism is a recessive genetic disorder. You either have it or you don`t. No half measures.

    It would be possible for both her parents to be carrying the gene for albinism (it`s recessive, so they could each have one copy without any effects) and thus possible for them to have an albino child, but it`s been repeatedly stated that this isn`t what has happened. You can test for albinism - I assume that`s been done as it`s been repeatedly stated that she doesn`t have it.

    Hundreds of millions of people have skin that sort of colour - is it still a disorder when it`s that common?

    I`d assumed that the lightening of skin in humans as an adaptation to a northern climate took place over a long time, a lightening from generation to generation, but that`s just my assumption. Maybe it happened like this and flourished because it was useful there and then and/or because it was for some reason considered highly desirable. If it did happen this suddenly back then, that that person would have stood out a mile.

    It is a very slim genetic chance that this happened. But still possible. Light skin and blonde hair are recessive. If both parents have these genes, it is a possibility random freak occurance for this to happen.

    This sort of thing can just happen. I still don`t see the big deal over this. Two people whose genetic makeup gave them dark hair, dark eyes, and dark skin had a baby whose genetic makeup gave him/her lite hair, eyes, and skin.
    Basically, people are in an up-roar because two people bumped uglies and pushed out a kid.

    the only different between african-american and caucasian skin is the gene that puts out the amount of melanin. which i thought was just a single gene, so if you have a mutation in that gene wich happens = not very often but mutations do happen. and then the difference in types of hair is just ammounts of hydrogen bonds making it kink or straighten which i thought was a single gene too. along with the blond hair. so the baby getting all of these mutations is quite random, but thats why this baby is the first one weve heard of and was such a great news story i suppose. because you can see different features from both of the parents. have they done a paternity test to prove it?

    No, it`s not that simple.

    Which is a good summary of genetics, really. Find an answer, look in more detail and find that it`s not that simple.

    If I recall correctly, about a dozen genes are involved in human skin colour. At least, that`s what is currently thought. It probably isn`t that simple.

    "the only different between african-american and caucasian skin is the gene that puts out the amount of melanin"

    No. There`s more difference than a single gene between my skin color and the skin color of my brother. There`s about 5 gene pairs inherited per parent (give or take, depending on race). The combined 10 gene pairs have thousands of combinations that can alter the appearance of skin.
