White Mom Claims Her Baby is Black Because She Has Black Ancestors, Even Though Husband is White

On February 17, 2024, Rachel and Paul Buckman, living in Celina, Tennessee, welcomed their baby boy into the world. Everyone was overjoyed, including Rachel’s workplace, ’52 Truck Stop’. They shared a photo of the new family on their Facebook page. However, eagle-eyed observers soon noticed something unusual about the baby.

Now, while both Paul and Rachel are white, their baby appears to be Black. Many people were taken aback by the unexpected sight and started commenting about Paul not being Cash’s biological father.

So, the Truck Stop updated its post and explained, “Yes, Paul is the father. Rachel has African American DNA in her, which can skip generations and cause a child to be born with darker skin. The baby is also a [bit] discolored because it has jaundice or something, probably. Please be kind.”

But people remained skeptical despite the explanation.

“I feel sorry for Paul, being duped like this is a whole new level of creep. Hopefully he’ll wise up,” one wrote in the comment section.

Someone expressed concern about a possible mistake at the hospital.

“Definitely needs a DNA test; what if they accidentally mixed up the kiddos in the nursery?” they wondered.

“Congratulations!!! I AM sure he looks just like his dad. Where is he?” a third commenter said.

So, Rachel took matters into her own hands and shared a photo of her DNA results, revealing that she is 1% descended from Cameroon, Congo, and Western Bantu peoples.

“For the haters saying that I dont have black DNA maybe this will clear it up straight from my ancestry DNA results !!!! NOW STOP slandering mine and my fiancee Paul Buckman name. he IS the father of Lil Cash.-RACHEL,” she wrote.

But people still weren’t sure, and their skepticism persisted.

Someone said, “That’s the strongest 1% I’ve ever seen. This looks like a job for Maury.”

“I have that too… and both my babies still look Irish as a boiled potato,” said someone else.

The father, Paul, eventually addressed the situation, acknowledging that it had been tough for him to deal with some of the responses on Facebook. He asked, “Have you ever had the feeling that everyone is laughing at you?”

In another post, he confessed to requesting a DNA test for the new baby. Predictably, this brought about a range of reactions.

“Good choice, Paul!! Do with the results as you please, but I would hate for you to not know the truth. God Bless you!” one person commented.

Another person joked, saying, “Sir Helen Keller could tell that’s not your child. Save your money.”

The original Facebook post has been shared 33,000 times, attracting the attention of numerous TikTokers. One individual, known as @omgkeez95, shared their perspective on the story, garnering over 6 million views.

“I know Rachel ain’t telling Paul this is his baby,” he remarks, proceeding to compare the baby to its parents. He firmly doubts that Paul is Cash’s father but concludes with, “as long as Paul’s happy, you hear me?”

  1. To all the haters I’m sure the baby is Paul’s and Cash will grow up in a healthy and loving family. People need to keep there negative views to themselves.

  2. I know that this is a very true probability. Happened to an area couple not once but twice. Both were blonde and blue eyed. They went through extensive dna testing and sure enough 5 or 6 generations past had a mixture of African American DNA on Dads side.

  3. I hope he chooses whether or not to do a DNA test for *his* decision, and not other people’s decision, especially on freaking Facebook! May they show the love and affection any parents would have for their children, and apologies for how other people ,(especially on Facebook) may react otherwise.

  4. Hi he is a very cute little boy if you decide to give him up I would be more then happy to take him. You Paul and your wife can reach me at my email address below
