Alison Spooner and Dean Durrant are no ordinary couple. The biracial partners from the UK have defied the odds. Twice. Not only did they have twin girls, twice in seven years, but both sets of twins came out with different skin color. One was white and one was black.
So it was amazing when it happened the first time – but even more incredible when it happened a second time.

When Alison, from Fleet, in Hampshire, found out she was pregnant again this year she was elated.
Her friends and family joked that they would take a bet out on the same thing happening again.
Alison had to be induced over fears of babies health.
Thankfully they were delivered safely, but doctors were also amazed that once again Alison and Dean’s twin girls were born with different skin tones.

‘I was shocked when I first found out I was pregnant with twins again – but I never thought for one second they would turn out the same as last time,’ Miss Spooner said.
‘After the babies were born they weren’t breathing properly, so they were taken to a special care unit.’
The former recruitment consultant added: ‘It wasn’t until about five days after they were born that we saw them side by side for the first time.
‘And when they were together it was clear that one was darker than the other. It was unbelievable.’
I didn’t know until then that there was such a big difference between the two.
‘It was clear to see but they were rushed away after they were born so we didn’t realize until we saw them together. We have a very special family.’.
