First Adorable Black And White Twins Born In The UK

These adorable siblings are thought to be the first ‘black and white’ twins born in the UK – despite coming from the same egg.  Mum Libby Appleby, 37, was told that her unborn babies would look so similar they would need to be “marked with ink” to tell them apart.

But Libby was stunned when Amelia was born with dark skin, black hair and brown eyes, while her sister Jasmine has fair skin, blue eyes and mousey curls.

Amazingly, the siblings are genetically identical despite contrasting skin tones, and are believed to be first of their kind in the country.


Mum Libby Appleby, 37,  from West Rainton, County Durham, said: ‘When they were born, we were flabbergasted, even the doctors couldn’t believe it. ‘They look like they’re different races.

They are adorable and amazing twins!

Amelia is the spitting image of her dad, while Jasmine is a mini version of me.’ Libby and partner of three years, engineer Tafadzwa Madzimbamuto, 40, found out she was pregnant in June 2014.


Only three months later they were told that Libby was expecting identical twins, and it would be tough to tell them apart. Describing the moment that she first saw the new-borns, Libby said: ‘We put them next to each other in a cot and couldn’t believe how different they were.

Amelia was so much darker than Jasmine, they barely even looked related. ‘Doctors told us the chances of conceiving mixed race twins are one in a million. ‘We were thrilled they were so unique.’


The identical pair are monozygotic, meaning they were formed in the same embryo but developed in separate sacs. Libby added: ‘I don’t blame strangers for thinking they aren’t sisters, because they do look nothing alike.

‘The girls are just noticing the difference in their skin colour now, but they’re so wonderful and unique. ‘Looking back, it’s funny that we were worried we’d never tell them apart.’
