Howeveɾ, ɑppɾoximɑtely 5 in eveɾy 100,000 people ɑɾe boɾn with Albinism, Albinism is a congenital disorder in which a person lacks pigment in their skin, hair, and eyes. When Bence was born in Székesfehé, Hungary, he was 5400 grams in weight and 54 centimeters tall, at the expected time. Yet, his parents couldn’t believe their eyes – because Bence had a full head of milky white hair. Both of his parents were worried, believing that something was wrong with the boy and that he may be sick.

After pictures of Bence went viral, he wɑs given the nickname “Prince Charming”. This is such a special baby.

  1. Seriously? My son was born with that exact same hair! Yes, the doctors and nurses took him around to show him off, but I was also born with platinum hair! Now my me and my son have dirty blonde hair. I didn’t think it was that uncommon though.
