Game Of Thrones Smitten Internet Finds This Newborn Baby To Resemble Daenerys
Devina Smith, from Mississippi, shocked her family when she was born with bright white hair
A baby born with bright white locks has sent the internet into a meltdown over her striking resemblance to Game of Thrones character Daenerys.
Devina Smith, from Mississippi, shocked her family when she was born with a mane of snow-colored hair.
Jessica Smith, the mother, posted photos of the newborn.
Devina’s snow-colored locks have already been attracting attention in public and online
However, according to the doctors, Devina’s unusual hair colour is due to an inherited condition called partial albinism, which is caused by a lack of pigment in the hair eyes and skin.
The rare genetic condition affects just five in every 100,000 people in the US and Europe.
Despite her condition, Devina is perfectly healthy.
Doctors have said Devina’s hair color is down to an inherited condition called partial albinism
Mother-of-three Ms Smith said: ‘I never expected her to have hair like that.
‘I didn’t know until she was born.
‘The doctor told me she had a lot of hair during delivery but it was a shock when I saw her for the first time, she had so much hair, it was crazy.

She said: ‘I hadn’t seen a baby like that before others were blond, but not white.
‘I think it makes her extra special.’
Ms Smith said: ‘She’s so tiny, we haven’t taken her out much but when we took her for a hospital visit, a little girl said she looked like a baby doll.’
Partial albinism is an inherited condition caused by an error in the gene that codes for melanin

‘When we posted her photos online, they were being viewed thousands of times.
‘I couldn’t believe how much attention the photos was getting. People thought it had been photoshopped.
‘My oldest is nine and he was so happy, and couldn’t get over her hair either.’
