No your eyes aren’t deceiving you. In Brazil there’s a black couple with six kids. Only thing is 3 of them are white. Really white.

Rosemere Fernandes de Andrade, 27, and her partner Joao have two children who are black and three children who suffer from albinism, reports the U.K.’s Daily Telegraph.

Genetics professor Valdir Balbino, of the Federal University of Pernambuco in Brazil, said the condition was especially rare considering both parents and two other children are black. He also said both parents must carry the albinism gene.

Albinism is mutation of several genes, which results in little or no production of the pigment melanin, according to the Mayo Clinic. The type and amount of melanin your body produces determines the color of your skin, hair and eyes. There’s no cure for the condition, which also causes problems with the development and function of the eyes.
