- Kalani and Jarani Dean were born with different skin colors, making them biracial twins
- Their parents are a couple conformed by a Caucasian woman and an African-American man
- There is a 1 in 500 chance that interracial couples expecting twins will have children with different skin colors
When Whitney Meyer tells strangers that her infant daughters are twins, they never believe her because the baby girls were born with different skin colors in Quincy, Illinois.
Nine-month-old Kalani inherited her mother’s lighter complexion, while twin sister Jarani got her darker complexion from her father, Tomas Dean.
The mother said she was immediately surprised when she saw her daughters, born in April 2016, for the first time.
"Kalani is our loud child," Meyer said. "She is crawling everywhere and going nonstop."
"J doesn't like to move. She just wants to be held, and she loves to eat."
According to the BBC, a biracial couple expecting twins have approximately a 1 in 500 chance for their twins to be born with different skin colors.
Meyer said: “At first when they were born, I wanted to believe it but it’s so rare I didn’t think it’d happen to my twins! But sure enough they’re biracial twins!”
