Different but the same: a story of black and white twins

When this 31-year-old Nigerian woman went into labor in February of last year, she had no idea what she was about to see. She can now distinguish between her twin sons with ease. Despite being born only a few minutes apart, brothers Daniel and David don’t resemble one another save for their large brown eyes.

Although one of the children was born albino, their parents, Stacy and Babajide, who reside in Lagos, are both black. Daniel has dark skin and black curly hair like his 5-year-old big sister Demilade, while David has shockingly white, pale skin and golden hair. As a result, the lovely twins turn heads wherever they go.

It was a tremendous surprise and the most fantastic moment when the first twin (Daniel) came out with black hair and the second twin (David) came out with gold hair because we were unaware of their differences when I was pregnant and the scan did not reflect such. The doctors told me that since I had them through CS, “It seems you are having totally unidentical twins.” Stacy, a mother of three children, told Bored Panda, “Nurses started coming out to look at them before I realized it.

The identical twins didn’t resemble each other at all; one was black and the other white.

David is one of every 20,000 people in the world who is born with albinism, a hereditary disorder.

The absence of melanin, the pigment that forms in the skin, hair, and eyes, results in albinism, a hereditary disorder that is inherited. Depending on the type, it can have a range of pigmentation levels and affect people of all ethnic and racial backgrounds. Typically, the likelihood of being born with albinism is between 1 in 3,000 and 1 in 20,000. Albinos must exercise considerable caution because it may cause a variety of skin and visual issues.

David has beautiful golden hair and light complexion as a result of oculocutaneous albinism. Fortunately, according to Stacy, David has no health problems.
