A UK Mom has given birth to twins, however one of the duo is black and the other white. The parents of the cute kids have implied that the reason for the difference in the kids skin color is down to the variants in their heritage. The father of the pair is of Italian and English descent and the Mother is of Jamaican descent. Doctors have backed up the theory of the Balasco family with this explanation;’When you have nonidentical twins, two eggs are fertilised by two separate sperm. They will share genes from the same parents but the way those genes are expressed will vary. Natalia will have inherited her father’s genes for skin colour and Orlando will have his mother’s. It’s the same sort of genetic variation that leads to brothers and sisters having different looks.’The babies join a very elite group of twins born with similar differences.
