If you are familiar with the X-Men movies, you might recognize the character Rogue—the girl with white patch hair born with superhuman abilities. Well, this baby might just be the real-life Rogue you’re looking for, minus the superhuman abilities.
One family from South Carolina has a distinctive feature that has been passed down on the maternal side for generations. Starting from the great-grandmother, four generations of women in the family have all inherit the incredibly rare genetic birthmark and have a tuff of white hair growing from the hairline in the front.
Most of the females in the family were born with the white-patch-hair birthmark.
The unique birthmark is actually a rare genetic condition.
Brianna Worthy from Ridgeland, South Carolina and her 18-month-old daughter MilliAnna Worthy are among the females in the family, hence didn’t miss out on having the white patch at the front of their hair too. The distinctive trait was said to be caused by poliosis, a condition which creates a lack of pigment in the hair and skin.
Brianna and her daughter, MilliAnna.
She looks awesome!
“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,” told Brianna to Daily Mail.
Brianna was worried if her daughter wasn’t born with the white hair streak because her younger sister didn’t have it,
But she glad MilliAnna was born with the same amazing white hair streak too.
She looks adorable in her white streak hair.
“We are unsure how far back the birthmark goes as my grandmother was adopted as a child and hasn’t met her biological family.”
Brianna also admitted that the trait is definitely a show-stopping feature, but everything comes with the downsides.
“We definitely get stopped a lot while out and about on 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.”
Hoping that MilliAnna will embrace the uniqueness as much as she did when she grows up, Brianna shared that she had few names called upon her when she was a child.
“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 I grew to end up really loving it in my hair and was confident that it was my own unique signature look.”
They looked adorable together.
“I plan to raise my daughter knowing she is beautiful and special and to not listen to people mean comments at times.”
Yes, you are beautiful and don’t let others define you.
