Parents surprised to find two cute little natal teeth in their newborn daughter’s mouth!

Like being blessed with an adorable baby girl was just not enough, life decided to throw in another surprise for this amazing couple. The parents were astounded at spotting that their daughter was born with teeth!

When Eva Faith was born, neither of her parents noticed anything unusual—not in her mouth, because her mouth was closed, not anywhere. It was only after Eva’s mother Vicky went to take a bath and came back to the room that her husband announced, “She’s got teeth you know?” and they both burst out laughing.

Indeed, there were two bitty incisors protruding from her lower gum.

“We were in shock, and so were the midwives. She had her mouth closed to begin with, so we didn’t notice. It was quite bizarre to see them,” Vicky stated, according to the Daily Mail report.

The Griffiths hadn’t noticed anything unusual until Eve Faith opened her mouth.

Eva was born at the James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire, England.

“It probably happens about three times every two years here and we deliver 4,000 babies a year. It’s every 2,000 to 3,000 births,” Jonathan Wyllie, consultant neonatologist at James Cook, told the Daily Mail.

“Babies are born with one or two teeth and it’s usually in the lower gum,” Wyllie said.

They were also worried that perhaps the incisors would fall out and choke young Eva Faith. And they feared she might grow more teeth, but she did not.

Their doctor said he’d never seen anything like it.

Vicky recalls how she would always show off this surprising occurrence. Her daughter was born on Sept. 8, 2013; three years have passed now, and Eva Faith now has many teeth. Of her two originals Eva Faith, “still has one of the teeth, the other fell out 2 months ago”, said Vicky.

Though they were lovely while they lasted, young Eva Faith is now losing her infantile incisors.
