In 2013, Patricia Williams had a baby named Redd. Redd had very light hair and pretty eyes that looked like almonds. At first, doctors and parents thought he was just a blond baby, but as he got older, they realized that Redd had albinism.
The doctors asked if there was anyone else in the family with this condition. After thinking about it, Patricia and her husband remembered that their 85-year-old grandma, also named Patricia, had been born with very light blonde hair. She was the only blonde person in their Native American community. Even though she never said she had albinism, the doctors confirmed that she did. Somehow, this trait passed down to the next generation.
Surprisingly, the grandma found an old photo where she was the only blonde person among her Native American relatives. Six years later, the family had another son who also got this genetic condition. Besides having light hair and eye color, the disease didn’t affect them in any other way, and both boys are growing up healthy and full of energy.
Now, 10-year-old Redd is getting offers from advertising companies to model for different brands.
Redd’s parents, who also have a 3-year-old named Rockwell, find it funny how much attention their kids get. They are happy to take pictures with people who ask, as long as the kids are okay with it.
