I'm having the same issue with the baby skin tones on the icon being darker skin and the parents are both white, the only mod I have is MCCC that adjust anything for babies. I don't play with babies/kids much so I'm not sure when it could have happened in my game.

P.S. I wanted to add that the babies skin tone in the bassinet is white but the icon is dark skin tone, even if the parents are holding the babies the icon stays dark tone.

All babies are black in my Sims-4 game. It looks like there is a cheating pandemic in the Sims world! Tongue out
It doesn't matter the skin tone of their parents, all babies are black. It looks weird in some cases. Babies should share their parents DNA.

Yep I have the same problem! I thought it was a mod at first so I uninstalled all of them but nope! Good to know I am not the only one.

I have the same issue - since the last patch my babies appear with the darkest skin tone in the gallery/household management no matter what skin tone they have in Live mode.

It's absolutely ruining my photo story-telling, not happy at all.

SAME!!! So glad I'm not the only one

 

When I try to share a newborn to the gallery, the newborn's skin tone is completely opposite than what it looks like in the game (i.e. white babies in the game turn into black babies when I try to share them to the gallery) - I've even tried to download my prior newborns from the gallery to see if it'll be the same problem and when I try to share it, & they magically turn black in the gallery too!

 

Is this a newborn skin glitch? 

 

When I age the baby up, the glitch goes away and their skin tone matches what it looks like in the game

Assuming its a patch error? I tried repairing and updating game, no luck. Please fix this!
