A baby is always mistaken for wearing a wig as she has so much hair. The little Marissa’s mother Alessandra McCurry, from Glasgow, couldn’t believe how beautiful her daughter was after she was born. She was fascinated by her newborn’s bright blue eyes but everyone else was more interested in her hair.
Alessandra recalled: “I took her back to the babies’ room, everyone in the room was just shocked – I was showing her off. I was going on about ‘her eyes, her eyes, her eyes,’ and everyone else was like ‘just look at her hair’. She’s so beautiful.”
After a short period of time, Alessandra started blow-drying her little girl’s hair, and the baby loved it. Alessandra said: “She loves it, she absolutely just loves it.”
A year after she was born, her thick hair has shown no sign of slowing down and it just getting longer and longer. Marissa’s brother Markis was also born with an impressive barnet. He was born on Halloween and Alessandra calls him her “little miracle baby.”
When they go in public places the strangers get stunned to see their beautiful hair. According to Alessandra, several people just can’t believe that Marissa’s hair is real, as many strangers say it looks like “adult’s hair.”
She said: “Everywhere we go it’s just constant. I hear people in front of me of the street – ‘did you see that baby’s hair’ and people say ‘you’ve got to get her into modelling, she’s so beautiful’.”
Marissa and Markis are not the only kids who have hair like adults as two parents in the US have compared their newborn baby to a ‘mini Wolverine’ after he was born covered in hair.
Nancy Rivera gave birth to her son Jonathan during the early hours of 28 January at United Hospital in Saint Paul, Minnesota, she and her fiancé Anthony Lopez were surprised when they realised their child not only had a thick head of jet black hair but also hairy arms, legs and shoulders.
The 28-year-old lab technician said: “We cannot believe how much hair he has.
“When he first came out it had almost formed a beard on his face and some people have joked he will be shaving before he starts walking.
“All of the nurses were joking he was going to keep warm during the winter. All of our family have found it really entertaining. Jonathan is like a mini Wolverine.”
