Amelia Appleby was born with dark skin, black hair and brown eyes, while her sister Jasmine emerged with fair skin, blue eyes and mousey curls. They have contrasting skin tones, eye colours and hair types.
But remarkably, these two babies are actually identical twins .
Amelia and Jasmine Appleby, who have just celebrated their first birthday, are thought to be the first ‘black and white’ genetically identical twins born in the UK. Despite coming from the same egg, the siblings look strikingly different and are often mistaken for step-sisters.
Their mother, Libby Appleby, shared how she was warned that her babies would be almost impossible to tell apart ahead of their birth but upon their birth, her little girls look completely different from each other.
