This adorable seven-month-old baby is often mistaken for a toddler due to his impressive head of hair.
Beau, from Hornchurch, London, was born with jet black hair but it was no surprise to his mum Sammie Pepperell, 28, as she suffered from ‘terrible’ heartburn throughout the pregnancy meaning the old wives tale was true.
The customer assistant and Beau recently visited the hairdressers to give his luscious locks a snip. Sammie said: “The hairdressers thought he was 12-18 months old.
“They had never had a baby so young in the salon chair before. “People are always complimenting Beau’s hair – they can never believe his age. “Beau comes from a Mauritian background – he probably inherited his hair from his dad Darren Lucas, 34. ”
Sammie recalls drinking four pints of milk per day throughout her pregnancy. But she never believed her baby would be so hairy.
She said: “I was told about the old wives’ tale, but I didn’t expect him to arrive with a full head of hair. “It was the first thing I noticed. “Everyone in the delivery room was in total shock. “I assumed it would fall out, but it keeps on growing. “I love it! “I didn’t want to get it cut as it’s his trademark but it gets in his eyes, so he had to have a little trim.”
