The world is a place of incredible diversity, but every person that is radically different always amazes us. This Daenerys-like baby, who has a rare form of albinism is the proof that there are real doll angels out there! With a name like Devina —which means beloved, divine, and heavenly— she was bound to have the resemblance of an angel. Devina was born on May 1 and melted down the Internet with her snow white hair, and her mother was no less than shocked. The albino condition is a source of inspiration for many artists, including this Israeli man who depicted the beauty of the condition in pictures.
Devina’s mother, Jessica Smith, from Amory, Mississippi, wasn’t quite prepared when her daughter was birthed with a thick mane of snow-white hair. Even the nurses were stunned when they saw her hair color.
“I never expected her to have hair like that,” the 27-year-old said for the media. “I didn’t know until she was born. I hadn’t seen a baby like that before others were blond, but not white. I think it makes her extra special.”
Doctors said Devina’s silvery hair is attributed to partial albinism, a rare genetic condition that affects five in every 100,000 people in the U.S. and Europe, according to the Daily Mail.

“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,” Smith said.
Devina was born perfectly healthy at 7 lbs. 12 oz. and 19 inches long.
Many people say that Devina’s hair makes her look like a precious doll.
“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,” said her mom.

Since her mother posted photos of her online, Devina became another Internet star.
“When we posted her photos online, they were being viewed thousands of times,” Smith said. “I couldn’t believe how much attention the photos were getting. People thought it had been Photoshopped.”
Devina is now 3 months old and her hair is still a lovely silvery white color. She even got nicknames such as “Miss Devi” and “Moon Baby.”
