Mum under fire for being disappointed by the colour of her daughter’s eyes.

Biannca and Damien Prince, who have 3.6 million subscribers on their YouTube channel ‘The Prince Family’, posted a 37-minute video about the birth of their newborn daughter, who they named Nova Grace, but the couple have come under fire for some comments made about their baby girl’s appearance.

“She’s going to have brown eyes for sure…,” the 22-year-old says as she is holding her newborn. “I thought you were going to have pretty eyes.”

Her husband responds saying, “She do have pretty eyes.”

While many fans congratulated the parents on their newborn daughter, some pointed out Biannca and Damien should be “thankful that the baby is healthy”.

The video, which now has over 1.9 million views, has also now sparked some outrage on Twitter after someone posted a screen recording of the parents’ complaints.

One person even branded the family “pathetic and ungrateful”, pointing out that some women suffer complications in their pregnancies.

The mum-of-three insisted she meant “no harm” by her comments.

“I didn’t mean for it to be offensive towards anybody,” she explains. “I just meant I wish she would have had my eyes, and to this day I still think one of my kids should’ve had my eyes – it’s just a preference.”

Biannca added, “she’s beautiful – she’s perfect the way she is.”

  • Poor bubba


  • I watch this family on youtube and all that matters is that the baby is healthy


  • I would say congratulations on your baby girl and shes a healthy beautiful one. I would never want to grow up hearing that my mother would say that. Just hope it was the laughing gas that made her say that!


  • Why are the younger generation so focused on perfection , not only in the clothes they wear, the house they live in , the car they drive and now heaven forbid the colour of their children’s eyes. Makes my blood pressure go up . The poor little precious baby is getting bad vibes from mum from day 1 , the eyes will change colour anyway. Plesse appreciate what you have one day it may not be there.


  • She is young – she should just be so pleased that her baby is a healthy one.


  • She’s a very young mum and hopefully she will come to realise how silly the comment was.


  • I’m sure the baby will be loved. I hope her preference for eye colour doesn’t make the kids hate their own. Aren’t newborns too new to know eye colour?


  • What happened to being happy with a healthy baby and a safe delivery


  • I think everyone is too preoccupied with appearances these days. How sad for this bub. I hope the mum learns a lesson here.


  • When my youngest was born with brown hair, I was like “Yay, one of my kids has my hair colour” in a joking way. (My oldest was born fair blonde and my second strawberry blonde). Then her hair got lighter and is now a dark blonde. My son’s also darkened up and is a dark blonde too. I think they have a nicer hair colour than me. It’s amazing how hair colour can be anything, and not like either parent. My oldest daughter’s father is a red head too though, but it also runs in my family as well. My older two do have my eyes, brown and all tan well (which is great for my oldest daughter as her father burns like there’s no tomorrow). My youngest didn’t get my eyes. In the end, it doesn’t matter at all as long as they are healthy.


  • Strange comment indeed. And, by the way, the colour of the eyes can change within a year.


  • I can’t understand what the Father is saying? The Mother needs to learn how to support their baby’s head.


  • She really is not alone in this, many people make comments about appearances


  • I think it was taken out of context. She probably didnt mean it to sound the way she did. It was just a naive comment at the time like when we say oh no it looks like the dad


  • Babies change so much in the first few months, everything could change
