"Alicia Singerl has the features of a black child - apparently taking after her half-Jamaican, half-English mom - while sister Jasmin is as white as her German-born father.

The girls were conceived and born naturally. Experts say the odds against twins developing different racial features are astronomical."

Um, not really that odd.

I am mixed race, african/german with a white partner. We both have dark brown eyes, he is.... white.

1st child

White. and i mean white with freckles and blue eyes. my mother is white with blue eyes, i must have a blue eyed recessive gene, as must my partner, for our child to have blue eyes.

2nd child.

Coloured. - very dark skin, clearly got a fro, and has the telltale blue bum of an african child. Dark eyes to the point of blackness, and the solid chalk white teeth of an african.

They are different sexes, if twins, would have been the same as the example given.

I do remember another such "rare" example, where it turned out the different eggs, had been fertilised by different men.... its possible...

hehe

I think the rarity is that they were fraternal twins.

It could be a case of heteropaternal superfecundation. I think that was talked about on this board not too long ago.

heteropaternal superfecundation

was that the thread where we were betting if Brett could rank for the term "heteropaternal superfecundation"?

Not rare - not really unusual. Twins are either identical - from the same ovum, or not; non-identical twins can be as different as any other pair of siblings.

I am myself a father of Twins, Identical Boys. I wished one of them was a girl, and that would have been perfect, but doctors told me that was rare. This one amazes me :)

Whatever the cause and no matter how rare, they are both as cute as babies can get. Really good looking kids!
