A mixed-race British couple, Dean Durrant and Alison Spooner, achieved something very rare and entered the Guinness World Records. What was that? They gave birth to twins with different skin colors twice!
First, they welcomed biracial twins, Hayleigh and Lauren, who had different skin tones and eye colors. Hayleigh got her father’s darker skin, and Lauren looked more like their mother with blue eyes and fair skin.
When their mom got pregnant for the second time, no one expected what happened! The couple was expecting twin girls again, who also had different skin colors! Even the dad himself was surprised when the girls, Miya and Leah, were born, saying, “There’s no easy way to explain it all. I’m still in sʜᴏᴄᴋ myself.”
Nobody expected this miracle to happen again for a second time. The older set of sisters admit that it’s hard for people to believe they are twins. Some people are just sʜᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ, and others may even think it’s a lie. So most of the time, they assume Hayleigh and Lauren are just best friends rather than twins.
With the birth of the younger sisters, the family was brought into the Guinness Book of World Records. Such a phenomenon is even rarer and now truly unique because they remain the only family in the world with two sets of biracial twins.
The probability of the birth of two sets of twins with different skin colors from the same parents is equal to 1:1,000,000. There aren’t even any statistics describing it, although its frequency is likely to increase over the years due to the growing number of racially mixed marriages.
The mother of the girls, Alison, admits that the younger twins, Miya and Leah, always idolize the older ones and try to copy them in many ways. It’s like raising two mini-me’s for her. For Miya and Leah, their older sisters are true role models, and they dream of being like them when they grow up.
