Families tend to look different. Sometimes, one of the children can inherit more features from one of the parents than the other, and vice versa. They can either look completely alike with one of their parents, or to the level of not looking so much like them but still being able to tell that that’s their parent.
But for mom Mellany McGurk-Davis, her children completely contrast from each other in terms of appearance. While Mellany has auburn hair and is fair-skinned, her husband Cortez is darker skinned and has darker colored hair.
Her first baby looked a lot like her husband, and when she fell pregnant a second time, she joked about how funny it would be if this second baby looked exactly like her. Ironically, that’s exactly what happened, and Mellany’s second baby looked exactly like her.

“My husband, Cortez, and I met almost 9 years ago through mutual friends here in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. We have been married for a little over 3 years.” she stated.
“Creating a family is something that was very important to us, and we were blessed with expecting our first daughter a few short months after being married. When our daughter, Willimina Daisy, was born everyone told us she was a spitting image of her father.”
“So, when we were expecting our second daughter, Valentina Janie, I joked that she would be my mini me.”
“Never in a million years would I have guessed she would be born with fair skin, auburn hair, blue eyes, and truly my mini me. Watching our girls grow up and interact is truly the greatest gift in the world. The only difference Willimina sees in her baby sister is that she has ‘big chunky cheeks.”
“Do I worry about them growing up in this crazy world with ‘different skin colors?’ No, not at all. My husband and I will raise them no differently, treat them no differently, and, most importantly, love them no differently.”
Seriously one of the coolest families we’ve ever seen. Share your thoughts about this contrasting family in the comments below!
