In April 2005 Kylee Hodgson gave birth via Cesarean section to one of the most unique set of twins on the planet. One of her daughters, Kian, is dark-skinned and has brown eyes while the other one, Remee, is blonde, blue-eyed and white.
The parents were just happy to have them but as time passed and the twins grew, the difference between them became quite apparent.
The babies were born within seconds of each other. The chances of them being born with different skin color is one in a million. Both the mother and father are black but they both have mixed race parents. The grandfathers of the twins are white and their grandmothers are black.
The medical explanation for this phenomenon is that if their parents are of mixed race then their male reproductive fluids and eggs would be consisted of a mix of DNA cells, both for white and black skin. However, if both the egg and the male reproductive fluid have all the white genes then the newborn would have white skin. The third possible option is presented if both the egg and the reproductive fluid are consisted of the DNA mix responsible for dark skin color, then the baby would be black.
Remee and Kian are currently 8 years old and they have a really strong bond between them. They have never questioned their difference in appearance and are just happy to be growing by each other’s side.
