The World's Hairiest Baby

All parents like their babies to be the centre of attention – but that won't be a problem for one couple, who think they may have the world's hairiest newborn.

Heads turn whenever two-month old Katie-Lee is pushed down the street by her parents, Steph Pleasance and Danny Webster, because of her shocking hair.

Some onlookers even think the diminutive Cilla Black look-alike is sporting a toupé.Miss Pleasance said: 'Even the midwife asked if it was a wig. When they see a baby, most people say “Isn't she cute”. When people see Katie-Lee, they say “Look at her hair”.'

Mr Webster added: 'Her hair is of unique colouration. We are forever being stopped in the street and asked if her hair is real.'

Katie-Lee's grandfather, John Webster, said: 'It shocked me the first time I saw her.

'I just looked at her and said, “Blimey, look at that hair”.'

Katie-Lee's parents, from Ashton under Lyne, Greater Manchester, are at a loss to know why their daughter has such an amazing mop of hair, which shows no signs of growing more slowly.

Mr Webster has already got far less hair than his eight-week old baby and Miss Pleasance said she was born without a hair on her head.
