The Twins With Different Skin Colors

While these two children may not look too similar, especially since they’ve got different skin colors, they in fact share a bond so unique that they are twins! It can be hard to grasp your head around at first, but their connection is absolutely undeniable and completely heartwarming.  You’ve surely never heard of such a case, and that’s because there’s actually only a 1 in 500 chance of twins being born with different skin colors, aka, highly unlikely as you could have assumed. But nonetheless, it’s still not impossible for it to occur, which was what happened for Judith Nwokocha, who gave birth to these adorable twins.

She gave birth to her twins in 2016, and at first glance, she hilariously thought that the nurse had handed her the wrong baby (we don’t blame her!). Kachi, one of the twins was born with a rare case of albinism, which affects mainly the skin, hair, and eyes, and is known to be an inherited condition.  When both parents are carriers of this gene, one in 4 children has the chance of being born this way.  Thankfully, however, her albinism does not affect her health, and she’s in just as good shape as her twin brother.  The only thing she needs to be wary of is exposure to the sun, and she needs to wear glasses. 

Their mother, Judith also just so happens to be a professional photographer, which comes in handy to document the adorable adventures of these twins, and their journey to becoming the very best of friends.  Judith also takes countless pictures of her twins to prove that her daughter is truly beautiful and that these twins aren’t all that different after all. Today, Kamsi and Kachi are four years old, and their special bond only strengthens as time goes by.
