*Nope, they look nothing alike. One looks straight up white, and the other, black no doubt, or mixed even. So its probably no surprise that these two siblings from the United Kingdom born to a white father and black mother, stun people that don’t know them because they look nothing alike and are often mistaken as just friends, the New York Post reports.
The girls have had to go so far as produce their birth certificates in order to prove that they are related.
“No one ever believes we are twins because I am white and Maria is black,” Lucy Aylmer said, according to the site. “Even when we dress alike, we still don’t even look like sisters, let alone twins.”
Even the family, including their mother, Donna Douglas, was shocked.
“It was such a shock for her because obviously things like skin color don’t show up on scans before birth,” Lucy added. “So she had no idea that we were so different. When the midwife handed us both to her, she was just speechless.”
Lucy, a redhead, who can easily pass for white, is the near polar opposite of her twin, Maria, who has dark hair and a darker complexion.
