  • The girls still kinda look alike regardless of their different skin color. You can tell that they are sisters.

  • I knew two people that were hispanic that gave birth to a "white twin" and a "hispanic twin". They were boy-girl twins. As it turns out their grandmother was caucasian.

  • Read the article, saw the pics and comments. Honestly they both look biracial to me. Neither baby looks white or black and neither do the sisters. PLUS, biracial children change A LOT as they grow ( I have 2 biracial children myself).

    Interesting article nonetheless.

  • It's strange how genetics can vary. I have biracial kids (I'm white, dh is south asian) and though none of them are multiples, there are some noticeable differences between hair/skin/eye colour for all three of them.
