First Birthday of Black and White Twins!

The 'one in million', black and white twins celebrated first birthday! Happy Birthday! The unusual twin - Marcia and Millie Biggs are the offspring of Michael, 40, and Amanda, 39, from Erdington, Birmingham. Millie bears a mixed race appearance, her twin sister Marcia has a fair complexion with blonde hair and blue eyes.

Last year, 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.

"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." Her husband and her are both of mixed race where their mothers are both white and their fathers are black.

Skin colour is believed to be determined by up to seven different genes working together. This phenomenon of different colour twins happens only in one out of million cases!
