White Model, Who Identifies as Black, Hoping for Black or ‘Milk Chocolate’ Baby
A German model who identifies as a black woman and uses tanning injections to darken her skin has stirred up quite a reaction by claiming in a TV interview that she and her white husband are expecting a black baby.
Model Martina Big and her husband Michael Eurwen, who is also using injections to darken his skin, discussed a range of topics when they appeared on This Morning on Britain’s ITV channel. These included their wedding, the 30-year-old’s surgically enhanced breasts, and the process of changing skin color.
One topic in particular caught the eye of viewers, however: Big’s claim that the baby she is having with Michael will have black skin.
“Yes [the doctors] say [the baby] will be black,” Big told host Holly Willoughby.
“We’re not having plans, but I’m discussing regularly with my doctor if my body is OK, if [having a] baby is OK, if breastfeeding is OK, and how the baby will look like.”
The comment seemed to baffle Willoughby, who probed for further answers, asking: “If that baby is not black, because I’m trying to understand how genetically this would be possible, will you still be close to them if you give birth to a white baby?”
“Of course, it will be a mix of me and Micheal,” Big replied. “But I’m pretty sure it will be black, but if it is milk chocolate or a little bit lighter it doesn’t matter.”
