Baby Born With Full Head Of White Hair With Nicknamed “Prince Charming”
The advancement of technology today means most moms-to-be in the Western world can see remarkable 3D images of their babies while they’re still growing in the womb. There’s very little wondering what your baby will look like and the sex any more thanks to these amazing scans. But what doctors can’t show is your baby’s coloring, how much hair they’ll have and the color of their eyes.
When baby Bence was born at a hospital in Székesfehérvár, Hungary, he left his parents shocked and doctors scratching their heads. He came into the world with a full head of snow white hair. At first, doctors were wary of albinism, a condition that prevents the production of melanin in body. albinism can be dangerous to some extent, as the lack of melanin can leave the skin completely exposed to harmful UV radiations.
Bence’s blood was examined by physicians and thankfully, it was found that the baby wasn’t having albinism. However, this is most likely a temporary pigment shortage which is why his hair was so white. Babies typically develop melanin as their age progresses. That’s why babies are born with blue eyes and blonde hair. The colour of hair and eye dramatically as they grow up. “The white hair is not a sign of illness or prenatal stress”, said doctor ZoltanKummer and according to him, Bence is not an albino. If he were, melanin pigment also would be missing from his skin and his irises.
In any case, the milky white hair is so striking that the nurses working in the maternity ward call him Prince Charming! In all other respects Bence is a big beautiful bouncing baby boy! He was born with a whooping body weight of 5400 g and a height of 54 cm; and arrived punctually – as expected!
His adorable nickname and unique head of hair quickly went viral, and millions from all over the world agree he’s a special baby boy. I know every child is unique, but there’s no doubt that Bence really stood out right from the get-go! He does look a little bit like an old wise king… but I’m sure he’ll look more youthful as he gets older. Who would have thought?
