When we think of twins, our mind pictures two identical looking people but that’s not always the case. Meet Lucy and Maria Aylmer, who are twin sisters – one is black and the other is white.

The sisters were born in 1997 to a half Jamaican mother and a white father. Their mom Donna was shocked when she saw her babies. “It was such a shock for her because things like skin colour don’t show up on scans before birth,” said Lucy who has fair skin.

While Maria has dark curly hair and brown skin tone, Lucy is fair and has straight ginger hair. The twin sisters reveal that no one believes them when they tell people that they are twins.
