This is a pleasant and unexpected event, which can sometimes surprise.
About what it’s like to get pregnant with twins, only the couple who encountered it knows.
This is a pleasant and unexpected event, which can sometimes shock.
But sometimes parents experience more shock when it turns out that twins do not look alike.
A similar situation was faced by a couple who had twins so different that no one considers them relatives.
Lucy and Maria Aymer are biracial twins born on January 16, 1997 in England.
At the time, Vince and Donna were expecting their fourth child. But when they were informed that they would have twins, they had to prepare to raise five children.
Alas, the couple broke up after a few years. But the parents continued to raise the twins together.
Vince is white and Donna is half Jamaican. The couple thought that both children would be born mestizos. But as a result, the children ended up with different skin colors.
Maria and Lucy are not identical twins and therefore have different sets of genes. They have two older brothers, Jordan and George, and a sister, Chinna, who has a light brown complexion.
“Our brothers have such skin, something between Maria and me. We are on opposite ends of the spectrum, and they are in the middle.”
Already at the age of 7, the girls asked their mother to stop dressing them the same way, because they looked different.
Now the little ones have turned into two adult, beautiful girls.
They also differ in character: Lucy calls herself a rock girl, and Maria adheres to more conservative views on life.
Maria is not afraid to start a conversation first, and Lucy, on the contrary, is an introvert.
But, despite their differences, the girls are always united and help each other.
Doctors explain that due to chance, one of the twins can inherit more DNA from a particular parent than his twin. This part of the DNA can become the one that determines the color of the skin or eyes.
However, the story of Maria and Lucy is a very rare occurrence.
