A mother who gave birth to twins with different skin colors has admitted that strangers keep throwing questions at her as one of her children has golden hair and white skin.
David, one of the twins, was born with albinism, a condition characterized by a partial or complete absence of pigment in the hair, skin, and eyes. This means he has pale white skin and blonde hair.
The twins’ parents, 38-year-old Babajide and 30-year-old Stacy, both have dark skin, as well as their four-year-old sister Demilade.
David and Daniel, who both have brown eyes, attract people’s attention when they are out in public places.
Stacy has admitted that while their children are kind of treated like stars, many strangers ask if the kids are both hers.
“I have to answer questions all the time when we are out,” Stacy said. “People say ‘excuse me madam, which one of the kids is yours?’
“I just say both of them are mine and people look at me as if I am joking. But I was surprised too when they were born, even as their mum.
“When the doctor told me my kids are not identical I didn’t know what to expect.
“But then I saw they had different colour hair and skin and I couldn’t believe it, so I’m not surprised other people are shocked too.”
She also admitted that she was shocked when she saw that one of the boys have light complexion. “It was a massive surprise.
“Daniel came first, and then the nurse said the second baby has golden hair.
“I thought how can this be possible. I looked down and saw David, he was completely white. I called my husband in so he could see what we had here. I didn’t understand.
“He couldn’t believe what he saw either. They are so adorable and it felt like we had been given a miracle.
“In Nigeria I have never seen a thing like this. To be honest I have never seen anything like this before in twins. They do look like brothers but their hair and skin are just completely different.”
Despite confusing doctors, people love the two boys.
“The family think they are wonderful and they are very popular in our family,” the proud mother said.
“They are so beautiful and cute and to all of us they are adorable. A lot of people have never seen anything like it and because of that they are quite popular.”
She added: “I have never had any negative comments and I am not scared of what people think.
“It feels great to me to be their mum. It doesn’t matter to me what colour their skin is because they are my babies. All that matters is that I have my boys.”
