A family is going viral for the birth of their beautiful baby boy, who happens to be Black. But the mom and dad are both white, and people online think something strange is going on… Check comments

Rachel, a new young mother from Tennessee, gave birth to a sweet baby boy on February 17th. She worked as a cashier at the Celina 52 truck stop and took to Facebook to congratulate her on the new family member. They shared a post with a photo of the happy family with the caption: “Congratulations to our cashier Rachel and her fiancé Paul Buckman on the birth of their baby boy Cash Jamal Buckman on Saturday at 6:18 p.m.” What struck many people was that both Rachel and Paul are white while their baby is black. As expected, people began posting mean comments under the post accusing Rachel of cheating.

The store then added another post with an explanation. “Yes, Paul is the father. “Rachel has African-American DNA within her that can skip generations and result in a child being born with darker skin,” they wrote. In addition, they stated that there could be a possibility of jaundice and ended their post with, “Please be kind.” However, this did not stop the jokes made at the couple’s expense. “Congratulations!!! I’m sure he looks just like his father. Where is he?” one individual commented.

“Definitely needs a DNA test; What if they accidentally mixed up the kids in the nursery?” added another. “I’m sorry for Paul, being duped like that is a whole new level of horror. Hopefully he wises up,” wrote a third. While looking at the comments, Rachel decided to share a post that included her own ancestry test results.

She wrote: “For the haters saying I have [no] black DNA, maybe this will clear that up directly from my ancestors’ DNA results!!!! Now stop slandering my name and my [fiancé] Paul Buckman’s name. he IS Lil Cash’s dad.”
