Genetics can be a tricky thing sometimes, but it can also be really incredible.
Usually, when two people have a baby together, they’ll get a relatively equal amount of genes from Mom and from Dad.
People used to think that I looked more like my mom, but as I’ve grown older, I’ve definitely noticed that I am actually strikingly similar to my father.
I have his smile, for sure, but if you look at my mother and I, there’s no mistaking that I’m her daughter. My brothers are the exact same way.
However, both of my parents have brown eyes, but my brother and I both have some variation on blue eyes. That’s because babies can still get the recessive genes that have been hiding in their parents genes that they got from their ancestors.
It really is fascinating to think about the possibilities of genetics.
When this interracial couple found out they were having twins, they were already shocked at the fact that they’d have more than one child to take care of. But on the day they were born? They had another surprise that no ultrasound would’ve been able to show them.
Their daughter was born with lighter skin, while their son was born with a darker shaded pigment. This is pretty rare, but obviously not impossible.
Can you imagine how many questions these parents must get every day? What a beautiful occurrence!
