Like mother, like daughter. Brianna Worthy, a 23-year-old mom from South Carolina, has passed on a rare birthmark causing a bleach effect to her daughter’s hair.

The white streak that falls upon her baby’s forehead matches that of her own, her mother’s, and her grandmother’s — making baby MilliAnna the fourth generation to inherit the unusual trait

These striking locks are the result of a skin and hair condition known as poliosis, causing a decrease or absence of pigment in the affected area.

While Brianna welcomes polite comments and questions offered from strangers, she admits the unique feature also has its downsides.

“I had several names such as skunk that kids would try to insult me with as a child,” she told the Sun.

“I plan to raise my daughter knowing she is beautiful and special and to not listen to people’s mean comments at times.”
