As a rule, twins look alike, like two peas in a pod, and often take advantage of this similarity when playing others. But every rule has its exceptions. Everyone who sees these twins does not even know about their family ties, because they not only have different facial features, but even have different skin colors!
Maria and Lucy Douglas
Twins from the UK Maria and Lucy Douglas have attracted the attention of others since childhood, because one of them is red-haired with a milky complexion, and the second is a dark-skinned, curly brunette. Their father was white and their mother was half Jamaican. From school age, sisters have become accustomed to the fact that they need to present a birth certificate to prove their relationship. Lucy explains: "".
The daughters' appearance came as a complete surprise even to their mother when she saw her children for the first time after their birth. "" Says Lucy.
The girls are not similar not only in appearance, but also in character and their hobbies: Lucy studies art and design, and Maria - psychology and law. The rest of their brothers and sisters are also completely different. Lucy says: "".
James and Daniel Kelly
The age difference between these brothers is only 2 minutes, but they are similar, like day and night. Their parents Errol and Alison Kelly are an interracial couple, but they were also very surprised by their sons' looks. This was not a big problem for their family. "", Says their mother.
These brothers are opposites both externally and in character. Their father confesses: "".
Kalani and Jarani Dean
In 2017, the newborn sisters Kalani and Jarani Dean became the real stars of social networks. This happened after their mother, American Whitney Meyer, posted a photo of her daughters on the social network. Her husband is African American, and she herself is white. "", Says Whitney.
The girls are not alike at all. Kalani has blue eyes and blonde hair, while Jarani has brown eyes and dark hair. Kalani is active, curious and energetic, it is difficult for parents to keep up with her. And with Jarani there are much fewer problems - she is calm and persevering. Their parents have become accustomed to the fact that passers-by stop on the streets when they see their daughters, especially when they are dressed the same way.
Kean and Remy Horder
Both the mother and the father of these sisters from the UK are black, but there were both fair-skinned and dark-skinned ancestors in their family. The girls were brought up so that both of them do not notice how different they are, and do not ask questions about why they look like that. Such questions arise only from outside observers. They mistake the sisters for girlfriends and are very surprised that they are dressed the same.
Just like other pairs of double-racial twins, these sisters are completely different in character and interests, they learned to walk and talk at different times and even study in different classes of the school. Kean is more confident and sociable, while Remi is more shy and closed. However, according to their mom, there is an intuitive affinity between them: "".
According to statistics, only one in 500 interracial couples has twins with different skin colors. This happens when the parents are from different ethnic groups, or when a woman becomes pregnant with two men of different nationalities. In this case, the twins are called dizygotic - when 2 eggs are fertilized at once. Two-racial twins do not have mixed characteristics of both races, but each - the characteristics of their own separate race. With the increasing number of interracial marriages, the occurrence of such unusual twins is becoming more frequent.
And sometimes twins look very similar, but at the same time demonstrate completely different outlooks on life and preferences: Identical twins with different orientations.
