When this baby was born. Nurses were shocked by the newborn’s hair parents, Priya and Ramesh Avro were anxiously awaiting the arrival of their first daughter. The couple had two sons previously and felt that a daughter would complete their family. Priya and Ramesh met when they were both 13 years old. They had been each other’s first kiss and had gotten engaged fairly young at the age of 20.
They knew they were meant to be together though, and exactly a year after they got engaged, Priya and Ramesh had a lavish wedding ceremony. 260 guests attended, and the wedding was regarded as the best of the year. Prior first fell pregnant with her son Remy two years after the couple married, and they had their second son, Pravin, after that. They adored their sons but hoped that their next child would be a daughter. Priya was over the moon when the scan revealed she would be getting what she wished for.
Priya’s pregnancy was smooth sailing, but the family knew they would need some help. Ramench had his own business that required a lot of his time, and PRIA worked as a nurse. She loved her job and didn’t want to give it up and become a stay at home mom just yet, so they hired a nanny. The Average were fussy about who they would allow to look after their children and ended up interviewing eight candidates before they settled on one. They felt suited best, 19 year old Samantha.
Samantha had a lot of experience with children, having come from a large household and she was currently studying to be a primary school teacher. She was fun and energetic, meaning she would be up for the task of looking after two Rambunctious boys. Samantha started work for the Average and things went off without a hitch. Remy and Pravin loved her and Priya got on well with the new honorary family member. Samantha helped Priya set up her upcoming baby girl’s beautiful nursery.
Priya had an eye for style and the room looked like something out of a magazine. The pastel pink walls were dotted with art and the crib was the focal point of the room. Everyone was ready for the new arrival. The new arrival, however, had no intention of making a timely appearance. Pria ended up going four days over her due date before the doctor decided to induce her.
On 2 May, Priya and Ramesh headed to the hospital. When they returned home, their family would have one new member. Samantha stayed home looking after the boys, attempting to explain what was in store for them when their parents came home. Not that the boys seemed to understand at all. Priya and Ramesh arrived at the hospital and the doctors started the proceedings.
Priya was induced and the delivery process went smoothly as it had with her two previous children. Since PRIA was so focused on her part, she didn’t hear the collective gasp that filled the delivery room. As her baby girl entered the world. Pria asked to hold her baby and when she saw what they saw, she too gasped. Her daughter, who they had already named Delilah rose had a full head of hair.
Not only was Delilah’s head full of hair, her hair reached halfway down her little back. That’s right, this newborn baby had hair that stretched all the way down there. Priya was shocked. She was always complimented for her thick, luscious locks, but she had been bald as a baby. The nurses gathered around Priya and Delilah.
They told the proud mother that they had never seen anything quite like her daughter’s hair and that meant something coming from the senior nurse who had attended close to 1000 births over her time in the maternity Ward. But the story doesn’t end there. Just wait until you hear what Delilah rose would grow up to become back to the delivery room.
Word spread throughout the hospital that a gorgeous baby girl had been born with flowing black hair longer than what anyone had seen. The news even spread to some news outlets and people began sharing the story of Delilah rose proclaiming her as the baby with the longest hair in the world.
Whether that was true or not, we don’t know. But the claim certainly has some merit.
