"Who is Your Daddy" Problem

My daughter just had her second child, a healthy baby boy. I'm really happy for her and her husband. Here's the thing: even from the moment she gave birth, and I was there, I had secret doubts whether the child was her husband's. My daughter and her husband are very fair-skinned Caucasian, the types that will burn if they are in the sun for more than 10 minutes. That is, very, very white.

My daughter's new baby is darker skinned, basically an olive color. It looks nothing like their previous kid. I mentioned this to my husband, and he said to keep quiet about it. Well, as my daughter started posting pics on fb of her new baby, all of the aunts and uncles in the family started messaging me privately with the same suspicions: that the kid isn't fathered by my daughter's husband. Everyone is like "That can't be [her husband's]." So it's not just me who thinks this way.

I don't know what to say to my daughter. Do I mention to her that everyone in the family thinks that her husband is not the father? Do I just straight-up ask her "Who were you fucking last year?" Do I keep my mouth shut and just let there be the eternal doubt that runs through the extended family about the paternity? I'm so unsure about what to do. Any advice would be welcome. This has me stressed out.
