White mom going viral after birth of Black baby, but husband is white

The arrival of a baby is always a cause for celebration, especially when it’s time to meet them face to face after months of anticipation. Ultrasounds offer glimpses of our little ones in the womb, but nothing compares to the moment when we finally hold them in our arms.

Babies often surprise us with their unique features, from a head full of hair to adorable dimples. But perhaps the most surprising twist occurs when a baby looks nothing like their parents.

This was the case for one family whose story has gone viral, sparking curiosity and speculation online. Keep reading to find out how it all went down…

Rachel, a cashier at Celina 52 Truck Stop in Tennessee, welcomed her son, Cash Jamal Buckman, into the world on February 17. However, what caught people’s attention was the fact that Rachel and her fiancé, Paul Buckman, are both white, while Cash appears to be Black.

The truck stop shared a photo of the happy family on Facebook, congratulating Rachel on her new arrival.

“Congratulations to our cashier Rachel and her fiancé Paul Buckman on their baby Cash Jamal Buckman being [born] on Saturday at 6:18pm,” the post read.

However, instead of receiving well-wishes, the post garnered comments questioning Cash’s paternity, with some suggesting that Paul might not be the biological father.

In response to the speculation, Celina 52 Truck Stop edited their post, adding: “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.”

They also mentioned the possibility of Cash having jaundice, a common condition in newborns, and concluded the post with: “Please be kind.”

Despite the truck stop’s explanation, doubts and jokes continued to circulate online.

One person wrote: “Congratulations!!! I AM sure he looks just like his dad. Where is he?” 

Another added: “Definitely needs a DNA test; what if they accidentally mixed up the kiddos in the nursery?”

At the same time, some people expressed sympathy for Paul, with a further user commenting: “I feel sorry for Paul, being duped like this is a whole new level of creep. Hopefully he’ll wise up.”

Rachel then decided to take matters into her own hands, sharing her alleged DNA results on Facebook to prove her ancestry.

“For the haters saying that I [don’t] have black DNA maybe this will clear it up straight from my ancestry DNA results !!!! NOW STOP slandering mine and my [fiancé] Paul Buckman name. he IS the father of Lil Cash,” she wrote.

However, the jokes persisted, with many poking fun at the situation and questioning the validity of the test results.

“That’s the strongest 1% I’ve ever seen … this looks like a job for Maury,” someone commented.

Another user with similar DNA chimed in with: “I have that too … and both my babies still look Irish as a boiled potato.”

The story quickly gained traction on social media, with thousands sharing their opinions and reactions. TikTokers also joined the conversation, adding their own humorous takes on the situation.

As speculation continued to swirl, Celina 52 Truck Stop announced that they would be conducting polygraph and DNA tests on their employees. The news only added fuel to the fire, leaving many eagerly awaiting the outcome of the investigation.

While the truth remains unknown, one thing is for sure: this unexpected twist has captured the attention of many, turning a routine birth announcement into a viral sensation!
