Baby Girl Inherits Incredibly Rare Birthmark Like Mom

Like it or not, we are just little versions of our parents. For better or for worse, we inherit both good and bad things from our genetic donors: crooked teeth, blue eyes, blood disorders, intelligence, etc. Very seldom are we born with a completely unique trait or mutation that didn’t have some sort of inherited basis from one of our parents’ DNA. Some of these traits we may not see in children immediately after birth, but some inherited traits are blatantly obvious.

When Brianna Worthy gave birth to her daughter, she was anxious to see if her baby girl would inherit one of her favorite traits about herself. Lucky for Brianna, this trait was an easy one to spot. Both mother and daughter have a shocking white streak of hair originating near their widow’s peak.

Brianna, who inherited this trait from her mother, was hoping that baby MilliAnna would carry on the family trait. As soon as Brianna laid eyes on her daughter, she saw that MilliAnna had also inherited the family trait just like she hoped. It was apparent. “I was hoping she did have it. My younger sister that my mother had a few years after me didn’t get it, so I didn’t know if MilliAnna was going to, but once I had her and they laid her on my chest and I saw she had it I was so happy,” said Brianna.

The white streak of hair is the result of a condition called poliosis. It causes the lightening of skin and the hair around it. The condition proves just how strong genetics can be, as Brianna’s mother and grandmother also have the same distinctive white streak of hair, as well.

The striking hair is beautiful and distinctive, and Brianna hopes to raise her little girl to embrace this unique trait that has been passed on to her, even though her unique trait may bring in some criticisms. Brianna said, “I plan to raise my daughter knowing she is beautiful and special and to not listen to people mean comments at times.”
