But it is thought that baby Daniel, now 11 weeks old, has a slight genetic mutation. He is not an albino.

Congo-born Tshibangu, 28, said that his 'jaw dropped open' when Daniel arrived at Leicester Royal Infirmary.

"I was too stunned to speak and I could see the doctors looking at each other, thinking the baby couldn't be mine," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying."

"Then Arlette and I looked at each other and smiled and I knew he was. I have been with my wife for three years and there was never a question of infidelity, but seeing his white skin was a surprise to say the least," he said.

"All we can say is that Daniel is our miracle and, though we are shocked by his white skin, we feel very blessed. He's beautiful," he added.

Wow! This is almost impossible. But of course with genetic mutation, it is possible. Surely, the kid will think he is adopted because he looks different from his parents and brother.
