White Couple Who 'Identify As Black' Claim Their Future Children Will Have Dark Skin

“Yep, they [doctors] said they will be Black. "

Just when you thought you knew all about Martina Big, the white German model that has been "transitioning" into her own vision of a Black woman for years using extreme plastic surgeries, including 32S breast—the plot thickens.

According to the 30-year-old model and her husband, Michael Eurwen, who both “identify as black” after having tanning injections, doctors say that their future children will be “Black” with “dark skin.”

Shocked at the response Willoughby retorted: “If that baby is not Black, because I'm trying to understand how genetically this would be possible, will you still be close to them if you give birth to a white baby?”

“Of course, it will be a mix of me and Micheal,” Martina said, “But I'm pretty sure it will be Black, but if it is milk chocolate or a little bit lighter it doesn't matter.”

Confused? You’re not the only one. Shook by the entire conversation, social media exploded with frustration at the ignorance of the idea that the couple could defy their white DNA to have Black children.

“I can clearly feel that I am Black – but it’s hard to find the right words to describe it,” shared Martina, who flew out to Kenya to be "baptized" as a real African woman.
