Rachel Carter was on cloud nine when she learned about her pregnancy. For every woman, it is the most precious phase of her life. When she was 12 weeks pregnant, she saw a scan of her baby. Everyone thought it had to be a girl.
The reason was the baby had beautiful hair which they clearly saw in the scan. Rachel was very much happy after learning that it was a baby girl.
“We could see that the baby had so much hair. They had never seen a scan photo like it before.”, she said
But a month later, Rachel and her husband, Gareth found out that they were expecting a baby boy. Because of the lush hair in the scan, they assumed it to be a girl.
After nine months, she gave birth to an adorable baby boy, Bobby. When the boy was born, he had beautiful dark brown hair. It was really surprising for all of them that the boy was born with full head of brown hair.
“When he was born, he was like a celebrity. The doctors were calling people around to come and look, and everyone on the ward wanted to hold him.”
The nurses told Rachel that the hair might fall out but nothing like that ever happened. In fact, his hair turned red as time goes by. Rachel says it is impossible for her to go out without anyone noticing Bobby’s lush red hair.
“People have to stop to look at him. One lady even stopped her car in traffic and shouted, ‘Oh my God, look at that baby’s hair!”
Rachel too was born with a lot of hair but it was nothing as compared to Bobby’s thick head of hair.
“My mom told me that I was born with a lot of hair, too, but Bobby gets his hair color from his dad. I have to blow-dry it, otherwise, it stands on end, and people think he looks like Wolverine. He finds it relaxing and even plays with his hair to send himself to sleep.”
