These Miracle Twin Babies Were Born With Different Skin Colors

Born in Lagos, Nigeria, the twins are treated like celebrities when they leave the house.

Daniel and David Omirin are twins who were born within minutes of each. Mum, Stacy, and Dad, Babajide, thought they might have trouble telling the babies apart, but it was immediately obvious that this wouldn't be the case.

You see, baby David was born with albinism, a congenital disorder which is aparent by either a complete or partial absence of pigment in the skin, hair and eyes.

Even though Stacy and Babajide are both black, David has pale white skin and curly golden hair. His twin Daniel has dark skin and hair, just like his mum, dad and sister Demilade.

Born in Lagos, Nigeria, the twins are treated like celebrities when they leave the house. In an interview with the Mail Online , Stacy talked about all the questions she gets.

"People say ''excuse me madam, which one of the kids is yours?'' I just say both of them are mine and people look at me as if I am joking."

She is seemingly not offended as she explains: " I was surprised too when they were born, even as their mum. When the doctor told me my kids are not identical I didn't know what to expect. But then I saw they had different colour hair and skin and I couldn't believe it, so I'm not surprised other people are shocked too".

The twins wer born via c-section and of course Stacy had no idea that they would have different skin color from each other when they were born. "It was a massive surprise", Stacy recalls. "Daniel came first, and then the nurse said the second baby has golden hair".

Stacy felt confused. "I thought how can this be possible. I looked down and saw David, he was completely white." Calling for her husband to come take a look, it was hard to understand that one of the twins was white, while the other was black. Her husband couldn't believe what he saw either.

"They are so adorable and it felt like we had been given a miracle", said pround mum Stacy.

In a way is was a bit of a miracle. Though albinism occurs in all racial and ethnic groups, the odds of being born with it is approximately one in 18,000 to 20,000. In southern Nigeria albinism is found in about 20 out of every 100,000 people. The parents of most children with albinism have normal hair and eye color for their ethnic background and do not have a family history of albinism.

Time has gone on but the charm of the twins has not waned. Stacy said: "'I have never had any negative comments and I am not scared of what people think. It feels great to me to be their mum. It doesn't matter to me what colour their skin is because they are my babies".
