Baby Girl Born With Dark Spots All Over Her Body Inspires Others To Embrace Their Unique Looks After Becoming An Internet Sensation

This beautiful baby girl was born with a unique condition that has caused dark spots all over her body.

Quality analyst Toneka Rogers Robinson, 32, from Dallas, Texas, and her husband, entrepreneur Justin, 34, met in high school and had been together for 17 years before the birth of their baby girl Jireh.

During her pregnancy, Toneka kept regular appointments with her doctor and carried out several tests to ensure that everything went smoothly.

Jireh was born in June 2021, a happy and healthy baby, but the couple were initially concerned as Jireh was born with dark spots all over her skin.

Their doctors quickly reassured Toneka and Justin that the marks were only superficial and that Jireh was perfectly healthy.

Jireh was diagnosed with Congenital Melanocytic Nevus (CMN) visible pigmented (melanocytic) proliferation in the skin that are present at birth.

The condition is not hereditary, and is caused by faulty development of pigment cells in the first trimester of pregnancy.

This condition occurs in around one per cent of infants worldwide. There is an increased risk of Melanoma with this condition.

Toneka and Justin began sharing photos of their daughter on Instagram to keep family up to date, but Jireh’s unique appearance garnered attention and her Instagram account @_jirehjoy_ now has over 7,000 followers.

The couple loves being able to show the world their beautiful child and are excited that Jireh will grow up in a world that is becoming more accepting of differences.

The couple are high school sweethearts. They dated for nine years and had our eight-year wedding anniversary in February. After attending college and working in separate states, They married and settled in Dallas in 2013.

But unfortunately, in 2019, they faced severe heartbreak when they lost their newborn daughter, Justice.

She was born early at 28 weeks, but her prognosis was excellent, and she was expected to make a full recovery. But They lost her unexpectedly at four weeks old.

Five months later, They learned that Toneka were pregnant with Jireh.

‘While still mourning, we began the process of a high-risk pregnancy. I had numerous appointments and tests to ensure the safety of this pregnancy.

‘Jireh was born at 38 weeks and two days, via a planned cesarean.

‘My heart dropped when he said that, due to the loss we had just experienced, but once my doctor said it was just pigmentation marks and she wasn’t in pain, my heart relaxed.

‘The moment he said it was just skin pigmentation, nothing else mattered. It meant that my baby wasn’t in danger of dying, I couldn’t fathom losing another daughter.

‘The moment my husband laid her on me, all was right with the world.

‘Jireh is perfectly healthy, and all her tests have come back normal.’

Toneka and Justin plan to continue showing Jireh that her skin is beautiful, and they are happy to see that other people think so too.
