Twin Girls With A Black Father And White Mother Are Born With Different Skin Colors And Nobody Believes They Are Twins.
When Whitney Meyer tells strangers that her infant daughters are twins, they never believe her.
That’s because Kalani and Jarani Dean were born with different skin colors, making them biracial twins.
Meyer, 25, is Caucasian and her boyfriend Thomas Dean is African-American. Jarani took after her dad, while Kalani inherited her mother’s lighter complexion.
‘I asked the doctor why Kalani’s skin was so white!’ Meyer told US Weekly.
‘I couldn’t figure out why she looked so different her sister.’
Kalani and Jarani are fraternal twins, meaning that they developed from two different eggs that were each fertilized by a separate sperm cell.
There is a 1 in 500 chance that interracial couples expecting twins will have children with different skin colors, according to the BBC.
The adorable girls are now turning heads in their hometown of Quincy, Illinois.
