|Black And White Twins by Gabry(f): 3:17pm On May 07, 2009|
In some families, there happen to be twins given birth by the same mother but however one has a fair complexion and one has a dark complexion.
What is your opinion on this?
I find it a miracle and amazing personally.
My friend did not like it and she find it awkward. She says that they seem to be like mutated.
So whats your opinion on this?

Twins Ryan and Leo Gerth were born on July 11, 2008 to their black, Ghanian mom Florence and white, German dad Stephan in Lichtenberg, Germany. The press is having a field day because one is white and one is black, but it turns out that, even though the situation is rare, we had no trouble finding tons of examples of such kids living all over Europe mostly. Perhaps where the white genes are still strong enough to bust through the black ones? Lord knows every white person in America has some slave in him. In all seriousness, though, it was funny to read story after story of what the media describes as a “million to one” chance of this happening. Shoot, black and white siblings are an everyday occurrence in Latino families. In fact, blog Racialicious wrote an insightful piece on what a bunch of sensationalism this all is. The story link and full gallery of ebony and ivory are after the jump.

Twins Have Different Fathers
A Croatian woman who slept with two men at the same time has given birth to twins with two different fathers. The 23-year-old student, who has been named only as M B, gave birth to non-identical twins in Zagreb seven months ago. However, she has revealed that DNA testing has shown the children have different fathers.
She told daily Jutarnji List, "I was shocked at getting pregnant and even more surprised when doctors told me that my two sons had different fathers." Doctors have said twins being born to different fathers is extremely rare.

Twins Have Different Dads
A Chinese man is suing for divorce after discovering that he is the father of only one of his twins. Liu Yuan of Nanjing city says he noticed the difference between the babies the day they were born, reports Longhu Network. "The baby that came out first was much bigger than the second, who was very weak and sickly," he said.
Liu says he started to be suspicious when the smaller baby turned out to have a different blood type, along with the fact that it doesn't look like him. Liu had his own and the two babies' DNA tested - and discovered that he was the biological father of only the bigger twin. "My wife admitted that she'd Were Intimate with her former boyfriend after we got married," he said.
Doctors explain that it's quite rare, but possible, since a man's sperm can survive for 72 hours in a woman's body.

When a woman has twins with two different fathers, it is called heteropaternal superfecundation - and may not be quite as rare as once thought. Three HS cases were found in a parentage test database of 39,000 records. The frequency of HS among dizygotic twins whose parents were involved in paternity suits is 2.4%.

When Kylie Hodgson gave birth to twin daughters by caesarean section, she was just relieved that they had arrived safely.
It was only when the midwife handed them over for her to hold that she noticed the difference between them.
Remee, who weighed 5lb 15oz, was blonde and fair skinned. Her sister Kian, born a minute later weighing 6lb, was black.
'Our two gorgeous little girls'
"It was a shock when I realised that my twins were two different colours," said Kylie, 19. "But it doesn't matter to us - they are just our two gorgeous little girls."
The amazing conception happened after two eggs were fertilised at the same time in the womb.
Both Kylie and her partner Remi Horder, 17, are of mixed race. Their mothers are both white and their fathers are black.
According to the Multiple Births Foundation, baby Kian must have inherited the black genes from both sides of the family, whilst Remee inherited the white ones.
Kylie, from Nottingham, discovered she was pregnant in the summer of 2004 and a scan at the Queen's Medical Centre revealed that twins were on the way.
"It was a shock at first to discover I was expecting as we hadn't been trying for a family," she said I had my 14-week scan and the sonographer ran the scanner over my stomach and announced that I was carrying twins.
"We couldn't believe it. Neither of us could take our eyes off the scanner - you could just see two of everything, even the outline of their little noses. We were both overwhelmed."
The twins were born by caesarean in April last year because one of the girls was lying in an awkward position in the womb.
"I didn't see them at first," added their mother. "They were both whisked away to be checked over and then the midwife came back and placed them both in my arms.
"I noticed that both of them had beautiful blue eyes, but whilst Remee was blonde, Kian's hair was black and she had darker skin.
"It seemed strange, but I was feeling so ill that I didn't really take it in at that stage."
The next day she mentioned the colour difference to her mother, who told her that Remee's skin would darken as she grew older.
But as the weeks passed, Remee became lighter still while Kian went darker. And while Remee's eyes stayed blue, Kian's turned brown.
"There are some similarities between them," said their mother. "They both love apples and grapes, and their favourite television programme is Teletubbies.
"If they haven't seen each other for a few hours, they are so pleased to see each other and will hold out their arms, wanting to hug each other. And their smiles just light up their faces.
"I'll explain it all to them when they get older about why they look so different."

A mixed-race couple has wowed Britain with a set of twins, one black and one white – for the second time.
Dean Durrant, who is black, and his wife, Alison Spooner, who is white, welcomed twin girls in November, one of them dark-toned, the other very fair, The Sun reports. It was a miraculous repeat of 2001, when the couple had their first children, also twin girls, and also of opposite skin tones.
The elder twins' differences are more than skin deep, too. While Lauren, who is very fair, is a tomboy who adores Hannah Montana and is full of pep, twin Hayleigh, who is darker, likes dressing up and curling up with a book when she's not belting out High School Musical tunes.

Amazing stories. Its like my nephew, he born white and now black. I received a pic of him today and his hair is no longer curley -luckily he has that birth mark, so we know it's him. Can't wait to hold him in July. I had his pics on my NL diary but my brother said "remove those pics now" some people are so touchy
|Re: Black And White Twins by Outstrip(f): 1:18am On May 08, 2009|
One light skinned twin and one dark skinned twin (both blacks) are totally different from your examples which are one white and one black.
|Re: Black And White Twins by Gabry(f): 1:49am On May 08, 2009|
hotstuff, wow! I completely forggoten about that story. Thats a wonderful gift ooo with 2 sets of mix twins
Epi, would love to see the pic ooo. . . Its really a blessing.
Outstrip, what do you mean? lighy skin = white / fair complexion dark skin = black or deep complexion. Its the same examples naa
|Re: Black And White Twins by Outstrip(f): 2:09am On May 08, 2009|
I am assuming that this was the one that the mother had two different DNA's. Maybe it is not. I have friends that are twins and one is very dark skinned and the other very light skinned. My mother is a caramel color but her twin bother is very dark so I never realized that it was a big deal with 2 black babies with different skin tone
|Re: Black And White Twins by Gabry(f): 3:47pm On May 08, 2009|
Thats nice in a way but for me, I feel that its a miracl oo
|Re: Black And White Twins by Ben-10: 5:32pm On May 08, 2009|
I just pray such situation does not develop racism btw the kids.
|Re: Black And White Twins by Gabry(f): 5:36pm On May 08, 2009|
Nahhh only you fit do em ooo. . .
|Re: Black And White Twins by drrionelli(m): 10:30pm On May 08, 2009|
Indeed, such births are not really as uncommon as one might think. Please consider that any fraternal twins have no more genetic commonalities with one another than had they been born as singles. To see such babies as twins only drives home the point of expressed genetic diversity.
Perhaps these types of births can further stress to the masses that we really are, indeed, more alike than we are different! We're sisters and brothers regardless of what we look like.
|Re: Black And White Twins by Gabry(f): 5:31am On May 09, 2009|
Exactly! Right on point!
And also I believe that all this is happening to show the world that theres actually no need for being racist and all this nonsense

TELEMEDICINE HERE IN NIGERIA: PAY TOKEN FEES FOR ANSWERS TO YOUR HEALTH AND MEDICAL QUESTIONS TODAY.
What would you do if you had the opportunity to ask a close doctor friend a very personal question like?
• ’What can I do for my quick expulsion because it’s getting me embarrassed as if I were still a small boy’
• ‘My womanliness oozes odour during sex, is there a solution?’
• ‘I noticed something new around my Cores(joystick/womanliness) and I am curious’
Especially when you have tried the usual ampiclox, home remedies, herbal and natural products without much success, or
You could JUST want to settle an argument on a sex topic and need a professional perspective to it.
I imagine that very few persons can muster the morale to journey all the way to the hospital to ask such rather “equally embarrassing questions”.
We often rely on peers, trusted elders, and sometimes the internet, but the truth remains that the blind leading the blind does not improve insight.
Even as health professionals, not everyone is a sexologist and we could tend to be more aloof in issues of sex or even dabble dangerously in order to save our face.
So why not pay for professional consultation today and get all the answers you truly deserve.
The professionals are Nigerian consultant sexologists practicing right here in Naija so you can bet they will be very much relevant.
But, it is not only sex matters that are private. You can consult on any health matter as there are other specialists in other fields of medical practice that will answer your queries correctly.
Send your question as follows: Age, Sex, Location, and MTN recharge PIN (*N100.00 for answers within 72 hours, N400.00 for answers within 24 hours), to 07037853517.Strictly SMS, no Calls.
NB: Every question attracts a basic charge depending on how fast you wish to receive the answer(s), so do not lump together more questions than you have/can pay for.
Pass the buzz around, you do not know who may be dying in silence.
