Black Mother Gives Birth To One In A Million White Daughter With Blue Eyes - 'I asked The Midwife If She Was Mine'

Black mother gives birth to one in a million white baby
Sophia Blake, 45, from Selly Oak, Birmingham, was shocked after her daughter Tiara, now four, was born white like her father, with blue eyes. Sophia, (left with Tiara) who has a black daughter Donchae from a previous relationship (pictured together bottom right) was so shocked when her second daughter was born that she asked midwives if Tiara (top right as a baby) was hers. She said their drastically different appearances prompts comments from strangers and that many people don't believe they're related

Tiara's father, Christopher, Perkins, 60, a retired sales manager, is white but at the very least they thought their baby girl would be a mixture of both of them.


So they were shocked when Tiara was born white and blue-eyed.

They thought Tiara's hair and skin would darken as she grew older. Instead it has remained the same and their daughter has grown into a beautiful – albeit white, blue-eyed - little girl.

Sophia Blake was stunned when her daughter Tiara was born white with blue eyes, despite her being black 


Doctors say the chances of Tiara, four, being as white as her father are an incredible million to one.

But the fact that mother and daughter don't look anything alike is causing difficulties – because people do not believe they are even related.

To make matters worst, Miss Blake, 45, has a daughter Donchae, 17, from a previous relationship with a black man and she is black like her mother.

'I can't walk down the road with Tiara without someone making a comment,' says Miss Blake, a marketing executive from Selly Oak, Birmingham. 'People simply don't believe Tiara is my little girl because she looks so completely different.

She says: 'Black skin is usually dominant and my family, which hails from Jamaica, is very black. But at the very least I thought Tiara would be a mixture of Christopher and myself.

'I was so shocked when she was born I actually said to the midwife, "Is she mine?" I simply couldn't get over her being so pale and blue-eyed. Doctors explained it was a million to one chance that Tiara was so white and it was likely there was a white gene in my family which had remained dormant until now.'

Since then mum and daughter have been bombarded with attention wherever they go.

Despite their differences in appearance Sophia says that she and Tiara are 'peas in a pod' when it comes to personality. Pictured: Sophia with Donchae and Tiara 

'When she was very tiny I didn't mind so much. But as Tiara has grown older it has become more of a problem.
'Until I had Tiara I didn't appreciate how much we all identify ourselves with being white or black – and the issue now is Tiara has a black family but looks white. Sometimes she says, 'why don't we look alike mummy?' I explain she is mixed race but it is very confusing for her.'
Miss Blake, who is estranged from her daughter's father, believed she would give birth to a baby with dark skin and afro hair.

Sophia says that the difference in skin colour between her and her daughter causes them to be bombarded with attention from strangers
