Twins born with different skin colours

These seven-month-old twins were born just two minutes apart, yet people often question whether they are related.

Anaya has a skin tone similar to her mother’s, while her sister Myla looks more like her father Kyle Armstrong.

Mum Hannah Yarker, 20, from Wythenshawe, told the Mirror: Everybody comments on them. People say ‘are they both yours?’, ‘are they sisters’, ‘are they related’?”

“Because they’re not identical twins they both developed in separate sacs,” Yarker explains. “Myla’s taken more of her dad’s genes and Anaya’s taken more of mine.”

Lucy and Maria’s mother Donna is half-Jamaican, while their father Vince is white.

“No one ever believes we are twins,” Lucy told the Daily Mail.

“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.”

The pair have three older siblings, who they say are “somewhere in-between” them.
