Mum and daughter have beautiful matching birthmarks that turns hair white!
A mum has passed on a unique birthmark that turns her hair white to her daughter – the fourth generation with the striking trait.
Brianna Worthy, 23, from Ridgeland, South Carolina, USA and her 18-months-old daughter, MilliAnna were both born with a white streak of hair.
Known as a poliosis, the patch of hair and areas of the skin around it have no pigment causing the bleached affect.
Baby MilliAnna is the fourth generation to have the distinctive mark, which is also visible on her grandmother, Jennifer, 41, and her great-grandmother, Jaonne, 59.
Adorable photos of the tot with her mum and grandma show the family’s Cruella de Vil-eqsue look.
Brianna said: “We are unsure how far back the birthmark goes as my grandmother was adopted as a child and hasn’t met her biological family.
“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.”
Brianna admitted that the show-stopping feature can have its downsides.
She said: “We definitely get stopped a lot while out and about our daily routines.
“The majority of the time, I welcome the polite comments and don’t mind answering the many questions but honestly, it can be overwhelming at times,
“When I’m in a rush and just trying to do what I need and keep going.”
Brianna hopes her daughter will embrace her uniqueness as she gets older.
She added: “I had several names such as skunk that kids would try to insult me with as a child.
“Sometimes it would bother me when I was younger but grew to end up really loving it in my hair and was confident that it was my own unique signature look.
“I plan to raise my daughter knowing she is beautiful and special and to not listen to people mean comments at times.”
