Twins are extraordinarily beautiful and connected to each other on a special level. Sometimes, they look so alike they could easily switch places. Here are some of the best stories about twins swapping roles, whereas the following story is a bit different. Marcia and Millie Biggs, 11, from Birmingham, looked almost identical when they were born in July 2006. But as Millie started to become darker-skinned, blue-eyed Marcia took on a lighter complexion and actually grew blonde, curly hair. They are a one-in-a-million case twins, and they have a new adventure coming – starting secondary school.
It’s not often one twin takes completely after the mother in appearance and skin color, while the other one takes after the father. Their case is a true rarity.
Marcia inherited her mother’s fair complexion and golden brown hair. Millie, on the other hand takes after her Jamaican-origin dad.
Their mother Amanda told the Daily Mail:
“Even when they were at primary school, people would get confused. I’d pick them up after school and the other parents would stop me and say: “are they your daughters?” When I said they were twins, they’d always be stunned. I notice a lot of people doing double-takes. It does get a bit irritating sometimes, when you have people stopping you on the street all the time, but then I remember how beautiful they are and how lucky I am to have them and the irritation goes away.”
As teachers started noticing them, they realized that they are very similar, besides their skin color.
“When they were younger, Millie was always quite shy, but as she’s grown up she’s become a real bossy-boots. She’s very organised and in control, and is often telling Marcia what do. Millie is our little princess, she loves to have clothes related to princesses and lots of dolls. She’s obsessed with the colour pink as well, just like you’d expect from a little feminine girl. Marcia’s a lot more of a tomboy. They’re both very outgoing and positive, which is wonderful.”
Millie is a maths lover, whereas Macia is talented for English.
Their mom, Amanda, has had to warn King Solomon International Business School in Aston, Birmingham, that they are actually twins.
“I’ve explained to the school that despite their differences, they are twins, and hopefully that will help to overcome any awkwardness,” said the 46-year-old.
“But people are going to be amazed by them for the rest of their lives, and I think that’s fantastic.”
The odds of a mixed race couple having one white and one black twin are extremely rare because skin color is believed to be determined by up to seven different genes working together. But this was not the case with these two beauties who are indeed rare and lovely!
