Adorable Mixed Race Twins With Different Skin Tones Winning Over the Internet

Posted by James, 31 Jan

Rare as it is, there are instances where biracial twins are born with different skin tones. And according to BBC, its a 1 in 500 chance. Kalani and Jarani Dean are such twins. Kalani has taken the mom's complexion and Jarani takes after the father. Their mom, Whitney is white and their father, Tomas is Black.

Hailing from Quincy, Illinois, these little cuties are only 9 months old and have already taken the internet by storm for defying medical odds. This happened after their mother posted a photo of the adorable tots on her Facebook page captioned:

“We’re chromosome twins. “Kalani (on left) is light with blue eyes and Jarani (on right) is the darker one with brown eyes. This is rare but so awesome to share!”

And share people did! The twins have since gone viral!!


In 2008, the above interracial couple in Germany, Stephan Gerth is (white) and his wife, Florence Addo-Gerth (Ghanaian) bore such twins. They really caused a sensation at the Sana Hospital in Lichtenberg, Germany. Guests were flocking just to see them.

The above set of biracial twins, Lucy and Maria, have also been turning heads in the UK. In fact people think they are friends. Lucy is the fair-skinned red head and Maria is dark skinned one with curly hair. They don't look alike at all. Its even hard to believe they are sisters.

Strange as it is, it happens. Maybe some day, Kalani and Jarani will be turning heads too.

    Genetic inheritance is so unpredictable. I am familiar with the story of the British young women twins Lucy and Maria. Fascinating.
