The most well-known subtype of this is a white couple that gives birth to a black child. The title comes from a scene in the movie ''Film/{{Life}}'' where the (white) warden of an all-black prison sees his illegitimate grandson for the first time, and is revolted to see that the kid is ethnically mixed. However, this trope can also be played for laughs when the father [[WhatAnIdiot has no idea the kid isn't his]] when it's clear to everyone else.

* In ''Film/{{Life}}'' the Superintendent's daughter, Mae Rose, gives birth to a very obviously not white child. This leads to a [[IAmSpartacus hilarious scene]] where the Superintendent lines the prisoners up and compares the baby to each of them, trying to root out the father.

* A rare fatherless version, in ''Secrets and Lies'' the mother finally meets the daughter she gave up for adoption when she was 15, she is very surprised to see that she is black. At first she is sure it is a mistake as she would have remembered sleeping with a black man, then she DOES figure it out [[spoiler:evidently she was raped by an unseen assailant]], she had assumed her white boyfriend was the father.

* ''Film/AfterTheThinMan'': Asta the dog, a white terrier, comes home to the missus to see she's got a litter of puppies...one of which is too darkly colored to be his. He spies a nearby black Scottish Terrier sneaking through a hole under the fence and drives off the intruder angrily, then fills in the hole.

In RealLife, this can happen if there is a black or mixed-race ancestor in the family tree, as those traits do occasionally resurface with no regard to the parents' expectations. If the parent are of mixed race, then their hidden recessive genes can come out to the point of having a fair child. [[http://www.nbcnews.com/health/black-white-twins-brothers-same-mother-1C9926227 Sometimes]] the infant's parents are of different races, while sometimes both parents are themselves mixed race.[[note]]In one instance in the Netherlands, a white couple who underwent IVF found themselves the parents of a black infant because the lab hadn't sanitized its equipment adequately after performing an IVF procedure for a black couple.[[/note]] However, the old wives' tale of a white parent and a light-skinned black parent (possibly [[PassFail passing as white]]) giving birth to a dark-skinned baby is highly improbable--but, we must emphasize, still ''possible''!--in real life, due to the genetics involved.

* Pretty much the entire plot of ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddysSisterLocations'''s ShowWithinAShow, ''The Immortal and the Restless'', centers around this trope: Vlad the vampire insists that Clara's baby cannot possibly be his son. Despite the very ''obvious'' signs that this trope is averted.

* Played realistically on an episode of ''{{ER}}'' where Benton, while working in Louisiana as a small-town doctor to make some extra money, and ends up caring for a near-term teenage girl. Her father's racist attitude clues Benton into the fact that it's possible the baby will be mixed-race, in which case, the girl and child might both be in danger. The baby is white when it's born, to the angry relief of the girl's father, but then Benton warns the girl and her mother that it's not always so obvious at first. He arranges for the girl and her newborn daughter to spend a few days in town by claiming the baby is jaundiced(which the grandfather accepts) so that if the baby's skin begins to darken, they'll be safe. It turns out the baby is white, after all, and he sends them home.

** Also referenced when seemingly pregnant, white Terri talks to her sister. Probably an ActorAllusion -- the actress who plays Terri also played Gina in the ''Nip[=/=]Tuck'' example above and both shows were created by Ryan Murphy.

* Subverted in the second series final of ''KathAndKim''. When Kim's baby, who none of the main cast have seen yet, is brought in, she's Indian. Cue flashback to seven episodes earlier when Kim tried to seduce an Indian waiter the night she got back together with Brett. Then a nurse comes in and apologizes for the mix-up.
