White baby, black mum
Daily Mail story for Catherine and Richard Howarth
My million to one baby. Black mum Catherine Howarth was stunned when baby Jonah was born white with blue eyes … but now Jonah has been signed with five modelling agencies…
Catherine contacted Featureworld to tell about her stunning little baby boy…
When the midwife first handed Catherine, 32, her new-born baby she was stunned, convinced she’d been given the wrong baby.
For he had none of her Nigerian colouring – instead he was was white with blue eyes.
Even doctors were stunned when they saw Jonah. Although father Richard is white, they told Catherine the chances of him being completely white with blue eyes are one in a million.
But soon Jonah’s amazing looks were a talking point whenever Catherine took him out in his buggy. And now Jonah is set to wow in fashion campaigns and TV adverts after a scramble by top child modelling agencies including Elizabeth Smith, Scallywags, BizzyKidz and Happy Feet to sign him up.
Catherine said: ‘It was a big shock when I saw Jonah as he didn’t look like my baby. However, as soon as he looked at me with those amazing blue eyes I was smitten. I knew he was special and still can’t believe how lucky I am to have him.’
Jonah has recently had his first professional modelling photoshoot. Catherine, 32, and her husband Richard, 34, a medical recruitment consultant, met in Sept 2012, married in August last year and Jonah was actually conceived on their wedding night – so that makes him even more amazing! He was born on June 1st and is now three and a half months old.
We think Jonah is such a stunner and so did the Daily Mail newspaper where he stars in the first of one of many professional photoshoots!
