** Twins Shock Family As They Are Born Complete Opposites


Odd One Out

Twins Maria and Lucy Aylmer were born on January 16, 1997, in Gloucester, England. Both parents came from different ethnic backgrounds, which contributed to the skin color of the twins, but it was so incredible that one baby had strong genes from the mum, and the other from the dad.

Non-Identical Twins

Lucy and Maria are non-identical twins, from separate eggs, so they didn’t inherit all of the same exact genes.It was completely by chance what skin color the twins would end up with.

A Surprised Mother

When Lucy (left) was older, she spoke of her mother in an interview with the Daily Mail. “It was such a shock for her because things like skin color don’t show up on scans before birth. So she had no idea that we were so different. When the midwife handed us both to her she was just speechless.”

Dressing The Same

Like most mothers of twin babies, Donna chose to dress the girls in the exact same outfits. This confused most strangers, because it was quite obvious the girls weren’t related at all, or so they presumed. Even at such a young age, they looked nothing alike, they didn’t even appear to be from the same family, let alone twins. So how did their siblings look?

Their Siblings

The twins’ brothers George, 25, and Jordan, 23, have a light-brown skin tone. Chynna, who is 24 years old, is the twins’ older sister, and she has the same complexion as the boys. In contrast, Lucy’s skin is pale white and very fair. Maria’s is very dark. Lucy gets asked often if she is adopted.

Their Grandmother

“Our brothers and sisters have skin which is in between Maria and I. We are at opposite ends of the spectrum and they are all somewhere in between. But my grandmother has a very fair English rose complexion, just like mine,” said Lucy to a Daily Mail interviewer, when she was almost 18 years old. So what else is different besides skin?

Eyes And Hair

Lucy’s eyes are a blue-green shade, and Maria’s are dark brown. Lucy almost looks Irish, with her beautiful natural red hair. Maria’s hair is full of thick black curls. It makes genes so so interesting.

What They Each Don’t Like

Maria said “I used to cry about it. I hated my curly hair.” And lucy hated her pale skin. At middle school, she would get bullied about how fair her complexion was. “They thought I was adopted and called me a ghost,” she said, wiping away tears while shooting the Inside Edition video interview.

Can’t Fool Anyone!

“We were in the same class, but no one had a problem telling us apart. Twins are known for swapping identities, but there was no way Maria and I could ever do anything like that,” Lucy said. Unfortunately, the twins had to miss out on one of the funniest perks of being a twin: tricking teachers! What other “twin things” did they miss out on?

They Share The Same Pain

When asked if the girls had any psychic bond with one another, they stated that they did not, but that they sometimes experience the same physical pains in the same places at the same time. Wow that is cool.

Lucy Straightens Her Hair

Lucy admitted that as she got older she started to straighten her hair, because it was so naturally curly and she didn’t like how uncontrollable it was. She wears it straight now! It was never ringlet curly like Maria’s, however, but she likes to have the option.

Time To Dress Differently

When the girls got to around 7 years old, they asked their mother to stop dressing them in identical outfits. “We don’t look alike. So why should we have to wear the exact same thing?” Lucy said. She admitted she didn’t feel like a twin. So how do the girls look now that they dress differently and are getting ready to enter college? Well…

Total Clashing Personalities

Maria told Inside Edition that she is far more outgoing than her sister, but that Lucy has come out of her shell more since they have gotten older. Still, Lucy is shy. “I love meeting people,” Maria said, adding, “I’m not scared to approach people.” On the other hand, Lucy said, “I’m terrified of going up to random strangers.” Then, Lucy admitted they used to not be close…

A Distant Bond As Youngsters

I think if we’d looked similar or even identical, then the bond between us would have been stronger when we were younger,” Lucy confessed, adding, “But Maria and I had such different personalities, too. She was the outgoing twin whilst I was the shy one.” So is this the effect of not looking alike?

Not Having That Identical Bond

The girls were so different in terms of their physical appearance, fashion sense, and personalities, that they both feel they would have had more in common if they were identical twins. So, you may be wondering, are they close now?

Getting Older And Growing Closer

“Now we have grown older, even though we still look so different, the bond between us is much stronger.” They are best friends as well as sisters, and after all these years have learned to embrace how different they are, and how much positive attention and feedback their story has received. Just how does the rest of the world view them?

What They Look Like To Everyone Else

“Most twins look like two peas in a pod – but we couldn’t look more different if we tried,” Lucy said, adding, “We don’t look like we have the same parents, let alone having been born at the same time.” She explains that this is what most people think. Most people don’t believe the twins when they say they are related. Even some of their friends still find it hard to believe them!

Even Their Friends Don’t Believe Them

Maria told Inside Edition the story of how one of her friends saw her interview and later asked her, “You’re really a twin? That’s really your sister?” Her friend “didn’t believe” her when she first told her that! She had to wait until she saw it on television. As for their college plans they didn’t know what to do about separating…

Starting College

Lucy attends Gloucester College as an art student and Maria is pursuing law at Cheltenham College. “Maria loves telling people at college that she has a white twin – and I’m very proud of having a black twin,” said Lucy, stating that now, the young women are both happy and proud to tell their story. They decided to go to different schools to pursue their different passions, but love visiting one another and seeing their friends’ reactions at university.

Birth Certificates

“No one ever believes we’re twins,” Lucy stated in her interview. “Even when we dress alike, we still don’t look like sisters, let alone twins. Friends have even made us produce our birth certificates to prove it,” she said. But they said it is very fun when people first try and understand and they don’t get angry by it.

From Different Ethnicities

The mother of these twin babies has extremely light skin, while the father is of African American and Spanish descent. The babies have different skin colors, but are equally as adorable, we wonder what they will look like when they grow up. Even though it isn’t as much of a difference as some of the other twins we have seen, it is still so fascinating how strong genes are.

Their Field Of Dreams

Similar to our last set of twins, these babies are closer in skin color. The father is of African American descent and the mother is Caucasian. The mother admitted to dressing the twins in matching outfits and headbands, and wants to continue that until they get older. We wonder if they will complain when they get older just like Lucy and Maria did when they were old enough to realize that they were so very different in personalities as well as looks.

What A Mix!

With one twin looking like Ed Sheeran and one looking like a model from Arabic descent, these brothers shocked everyone in their college when they started their freshman year. There were many professors who refused to believe that they were related. How can it be that one is so very ginger ad the other one so very dark? People did not believe them, which made it interesting for them at University.

Their Friends Didn’t Believe Them

At school, Breana Cincotta (right) struggled to make friends and experienced a lot of bullying. Her classmates would ask if she was adopted, because her twin sister Brittney looks African American. This is an unfortunate situation that can happen with bi-racial twins, but their parents made them feel very secure and loved at home in order not to let the bullying affect them.
