This U.K. couple, Alison Spooner and Dean Durrant, were over the moon when they found out they were having twins yet again. At the delivery room they found out amazing news to see that one twin girl was white, and the other was black. – Your shocked right ?
Even more incredible, seven years later the biracial English couple were expecting twins yet again, and again they were twin girls, and again each had different skin color. The odds of this happening to one couple are truly astronomical. 1 in a billion or even more.
Seven Years Apart
Previously, Alison and Dean had twin daughters, Lauren and Hayleigh. Lauren is lighter like her mother, while Hayleigh is darker like her father. Seven years later they gave birth to another set of black and white twins.
Miya And Leah
Their second time around baby Miya has darker skin like her father, while baby Leah takes after her lovely mother.
Even doctors are blown away at the odds of the same couple having two sets of black and white twins. “Non-identical twins aren’t that common. Non-identical twins from mixed parents, of different races, less common still,” Dr. Sarah Jarvis explains, “To have two eggs fertilized and come out two different colors, less common still. So, to have it happen twice must be one in millions.”
Hayleigh and Lauren were ecstatic to have new twin sisters, especially ones who looked like them. The kids refer to themselves as not black or white but “balanced equally.” – Such a beautiful picture
To break it down into layman’s terms, one of Alison eggs were fertilized by sperm carrying the DNA for dark skin. While the other fertilized egg happened to be carrying just the DNA for white skin. – amazing odds !
