One set of parents (one white, one black) . . 2 sets of twins 8 years apart . . .

Both of the sets of twins were mixed, meaning one child is white and one child is black. This first set of twins was born like 8 years ago and then they just had a second set of twins. This is a British couple. They said the chances of this are like one in millions . . so cool. Have any of you heard about this?

  • I did see something about this. I saw pictures too. I wouldn't say that one was black and one was white. There was definitely a huge difference in their skin tone, but you could tell the lighter ones were bi-racial as well. All four are super cute!

  • Huh? You mean one child in the set was darker and one was lighter? That is really cool!

  • Yesa couple years ago I lived down the street from a couple who had twin girls they were identical except their skin. One was white one was black.

  • I heard about the first. Obviously, something in their genes is making it happen. It is a great case study.
