Maria and Lucy Aylmer are anything but your average set of twins. The teenage girls have a hard time convincing people they’re sisters, let alone twins!
These biracial twins were born to a half-Jamaican mother and white father, and they couldn’t look less alike! When the twins were born, their parents were in complete shock because skin color doesn’t show up during ultrasounds. According to Lucy (left), “When the midwife handed us both to her, she was just speechless.”
Lucy says, “When we’ve met friends for the first time they never believe we are twins and they have even made us produce our birth certificates to prove that we are actually twins.”
The twins have three older siblings, and their skin color ranges between the two girls. “Our brothers and sisters have skin which is in between Maria and I. We are at opposite ends of the spectrum, and they are all somewhere in between,” Lucy said.
This beautiful family has one of the most interesting stories we’ve ever heard. The girls say that although they do not look like twins, their sister bond is just as strong as any other set of twins!
