An Englishwoman gave birth to twins with different skin tones: here’s why.

Chantelle Broughton, a 29-year-old Englishwoman, gave birth to twins with different skin tones.

The babies were very similar at birth, but one of them developed a darker skin tone over time.

The children were born in April of 2022.

The girl’s name was Azira, and the boy’s name was Aion.

The appearance of children has changed dramatically in recent years.

The boy has light skin and green eyes, while the girl has darker skin and brown eyes.

The parents of the twins are of mixed race.

The maternal grandfather was born in Nigeria, and the parents of the boy and girl’s 29-year-old father are of Scottish and Jamaican descent.

Chantelle observes that children are frequently seen on the street.

People wonder if these two kids are related.

The children’s mother added that each child has a distinct personality.

Azira is quiet and serene, whereas Aion is more emotional and requires more attention from others.

Scientists believe that such twins are born when at least one of the parents is a child of interracial marriage.

In such cases, the second generation can be distinguished by skin color or other factors.

If the eggs contain a mutation in one of the genes that control skin pigmentation at the time of the first DNA doubling, identical twins with different skin colors can be born.

However, cases like ours are extremely uncommon.
