Meet the ‘Wolverine’ baby


Many babies are born with a little hair on their heads but very few have so much

Many babies are born with a little hair on their heads but very few have so much that they get doctors crowding around them wanting to have a look!

Such was the case when Rachel and Gareth Carter’s little son Bobby was born with a full head of luscious locks.

During Rachel’s 20-week scan, nurses were convinced that she was having a girl due to the amount of hair they could see.

However, the couple chose to wait until the child was born to learn the gender and when he arrived, the stunned medical team called their colleagues to admire the little boy!

Rachel, from Lydiate, Merseyside, said that her eldest son Frankie also had a lot of hair, but nothing quite like Bobby’s.

Now five months old, the little man has his hair washed and blow-dried on a daily basis to tame the thick mane.

His mother said he’s often compared to the X-Men character Wolverine or comedian Ken Dodd as well as being mistaken for a girl.

‘Even now when I walk down the road people have to stop to look at him, one lady even stopped her car in traffic and shouted ‘Oh my god, look at that baby’s hair’,’ she laughed.

Bobby’s parents have set up an Instagram account to ‘document’ his impressive follicles and says that she often has to keep him hidden when she goes to the supermarket.

‘Otherwise, we end up being there for hours with everyone stopping to talk to us,’ she exclaimed.

‘He was quite a timid baby but now he is starting to come out of his shell because of the all the attention he gets.’
