Yes, These Babies Are Actually Twins

Their mom fields A LOT of questions.

Anaya and Myla are 10-month-old sisters, and they are also twins.

"Kyle is mixed-race and I’m white, so from the word go, our friends joked: 'What would you do if one came out dark and the other was fair,'" Hannah Yarker told the UK's SWNS.

The fraternal twins -- meaning two separate eggs were fertilized by two separate sperm, and developed in separate amniotic sacs -- were born last April.

"[A]fter two weeks, it was clear Myla takes after her dad with dark skin, brown eyes and brunette locks, while Anaya is more of a mummy’s girl with a pale complexion, fair hair and light eyes," she said.

And people certainly are curious about the adorable babies. "I can’t walk down the aisle at the supermarket without getting stopped," said the mom.

While the odds are slim, Anaya and Myla are not the only living proof. An interracial couple expecting twins has about a 1 in 500 chance of the babies having different skin tones, according to the BBC.
