Shaving tends to make hair appear darker and denser: which appears to be the opposite of what you want, so stop doing that.

If you do, in time now, it'll get softer and lighter again. You can also bleach or wax. or you can just let it be: we're mammals, thus body hair is normal.

Is it possible that some women are born without hair on their arms, legs and bellies?

Anything is possible. But humans are mammals, and mammals have hair.

What does differ is that some people have incredibly light, fine hairs while others have darker, thicker hairs. Some have both.

Sometimes, time wears the hair enough that it simply doesn't grow back. My father has diabetes, and wears support socks. He no longer has hair on his lower legs.

But I doubt that being born without hair folicles in those specific places is really going to happen.
