Meet the baby girl who was born with more hair than her dad!

Her parents, Claire and Luke, from Heysham, Lancashire, had been told at an ultrasound she would be a hairy baby – but they had no idea just how hairy she really was.

The baby is often stopped in the street by strangers who are pleasantly surprised by her luscious locks.

Mum-of-two Claire, 33, who works in IT, said: “At one of our later ultrasounds, the sonographer said they could see a lot of hair.

“I didn’t realise an ultrasound could pick up that much detail so I was quite taken aback, but it never crossed my mind that she’d actually be that hairy.

“We never imagined she’d come out with as much hair as she did!

“When she was born Luke had his summer haircut, which is shaved at the sides, and it almost looked like she had more hair than him!”

Claire said her eldest daughter Lucie “had a covering of hair when she was born”, but it was nothing like her sibling’s.

She added: “The midwives couldn’t believe it – most of them had never seen such a hairy baby, and they all came down to see her because they wouldn’t believe it until they saw her for themselves.

“We always expected it to thin out as she got older, but it’s just grown and grown and got thicker and thicker.”

She said: “When Jorgie gets out of bed, she looks like she’s been dragged through a hedge backwards – it takes ages to brush in the morning, because her hair gets so knotty in the night.

“We have to clip her hair back, or it gets in her eyes – she’s very active, and she’s always shaking it out of her face.

“We’ve had to blowdry her hair since she was three months old, because it’s so thick and takes forever to dry.
