    A mother who believed all newborns were bald was shocked when she realised her baby girl already had thick hair in the womb.

    Alexandra Jechorek, 21, was astonished when her daughter, Maya, had a glossy mane before she was even born.

    The Dublin woman had been born bald, the same as her office worker boyfriend, Lee Bond, 23, and their son, Kadin, five.

    This led the stay-at-home mum to believe that all babies came out of the womb that way.

    She said: "We'd already found out we were expecting a girl at the previous scan, so at 34 weeks, we were just excited to see how much she'd grown.

    "When the midwife turned the screen around, I honestly couldn't believe my eyes.

    "There was this tiny little baby on the scan with a full head of hair. I just thought, 'No way, this cannot be possible'.

    "To be completely honest, I thought all babies were born bald. My oldest Kadin came out bald, so I just thought that was how babies were when they were born.

    "But once I'd taken in how much hair she had, it made me all the more excited to meet her, as Maya already looked like a proper little person."

    Six weeks later, on June 9, 2019, Maya was born at The Coombe Women and Infants University Hospital, in Dublin, weighing 8lbs 9oz.

    Alexandra laughed: "As soon as Maya arrived, I couldn't take my eyes off her hair.

    "I'd been expecting her to have hair because of the scan, but to see this beautiful baby with this thick jet black hair was incredible.

    "It had already grown so long it was down past her ears.

    "Even the nurses and the doctors turned to me and said they'd never seen a baby with so much hair in all the time they'd worked at the hospital."

    Soon Maya's incredible mop was commanding attention everywhere she went.

    "We couldn't leave the house without someone complimenting Maya on her hair," Alexandra said.

    "Lots of people would ask, 'How old is she?' They were shocked when I told them she was only three months old with so much hair!"

    While Alexandra has never measured her daughter's locks, she says that, now one years old, it is so long that it skims the top of her nappy.

    She said: "I've never had her hair cut. I think it's absolutely beautiful and I want her to grow it as long as she wants."

    Having such long hair means Maya has already been able to experiment with a host of different styles.

    Her mum shows them off on her very own Instagram site, where she already has 300 followers.

    "Maya's really good she always sits still and lets me do her hair," said Alexandra.

    "I do it in plaits and sometimes I tie it in a ponytail.

    "I love putting bow clips in her hair. I have different colours, like pink, blue, red and yellow, to match the different outfits that she wears."

    Maya's beautiful hair means that, despite her tender age, her mum puts her through a demanding regime.

    "I shampoo and conditioner her hair every day," said Alexandra.

    "Then I brush it through and spray on some stay-in conditioner and dry it with a towel.

    "It takes about 20 minutes, which is quite a long time considering I'm doing a one year old's hair."

    With her Instagram profile growing, Alexandra now hopes one day to launch Maya as a baby model.

    "People love looking at pictures of Maya – they can't get enough of her hair," she said.

    "I usually post pictures of her different hairstyles or of her playing with Kadin.

    "But the comments are always about how amazing Maya's hair is."

    With no family history of babies with hair, Alexandra says Maya's amazing mop is a complete fluke.

    She said: "I've asked around my family and Lee's to see if anyone else was born with hair like Maya's, but everyone's told me no, so it must've just been a fluke.

    "And it's weird that she has such dark hair, as when Kadin was a baby, he had such fine blond hair.

    "I suppose I've got quite dark hair, so she must've got that from me, but even so – I certainly didn't have thick hair until I was much older.

    "While the reason for her luscious locks remains a mystery, I love it and think Maya is really beautiful."
