Mom Of Black And White Twins Often Gets Asked Which One Of The Boys Is Hers

A Tale of Twin Miracles: The Unlikely Duo of Albinism and Melanism

When a 31-year-old Nigerian woman went into labor in February of a year ago, she was about to experience a miracle that would astonish everyone. Today, she effortlessly distinguishes between her twin sons, Daniel and David, who share an uncanny dissimilarity despite their twin birth.

A Pair of Unusual Twins

Stacy and Babajide, both hailing from Lagos, Nigeria, are the proud parents of the charming twins who often draw attention due to their strikingly divergent appearances.

Despite being identical twins, David’s pale skin and golden hair contrasts starkly with his brother, Daniel’s dark skin and black curly hair. Following in the footsteps of their older sister, Demilade, the twins’ unique circumstances quickly gained popularity, with nearly 18,000 followers on Instagram within their first year.

A Surprising Arrival

The twins’ birth on February 26th last year came as a shock to everyone. “During my pregnancy, we had no hint about their differences; the scans revealed nothing unusual,” Stacy, a mother of three, shares. “It was a mind-blowing moment when the first twin, Daniel, was born with black hair, followed by the second twin, David, with gold hair. Even the doctors were astounded, exclaiming that we had totally unidentical twins!”

The twins’ father was overjoyed by the rare event, quickly nicknaming David as ‘Golden’. “He stood for more than 10 minutes staring at them, saying he was just looking at God’s wonderful work and that they are his best gift ever.”

Understanding Albinism

David falls into the highly rare category of albinism, a condition present in only 1 in 20,000 infants. Albinism is a congenital condition, leading to a lack of melanin production affecting skin, hair, and eye color. Albinism, affecting all racial and ethnic groups, is relatively rare, with birth probabilities between 3,000 and 20,000.

David’s oculocutaneous albinism gives him his unique golden hair and pale complexion. Despite potential skin and vision issues related to albinism, Stacy affirms that David experiences no health complications.

Despite being one of the countries with the highest rates of albinism globally, Nigeria also sees considerable prejudice against this community. Over 600,000 albino Nigerians face discrimination and harassment, leading to professional and academic hardships.

A Family’s Love and Future Aspirations

However, Stacy ensures that both her sons are equally and unconditionally loved, and they’ve never encountered any unpleasant experiences. “We often attract side talks whenever we go out, but I think due to their cute and adorable nature, people just want to come close to say hello,” she shares.

Their unique attributes have caught the attention of modeling agencies in the UK, and the family is open to such opportunities. To share their joy and highlight important issues, they have created an Instagram account.

Stacy believes her sons have a story to share. She lovingly describes them: “They have two different amazing personalities. Daniel is more expressive while David is an observer. Both of them are highly inquisitive. They are both energetic.”
