Although Lucy and Maria Aylmer are twins, you wouldn’t know it from their appearance.

The 18-year-old twins are not identical, and they look very different from one another. One is lighter with straight ginger hair and blue eyes, and the other is darker with a mane of curly brown ringlets and brown eyes.

The twins from Gloucester raised eyebrows when they were born and claimed no one believes they are twins.

While Vince, Lucy and Maria’s father, is Caucasian, Donna, their mother, is half-Jamaican.

Because traits like skin tone don’t show up on scans before birth, Lucy claimed it was a shock to their mother.

She was unaware of any differences, therefore. When the doctor gave the two of us to her, she was dumbfounded.

No one ever thinks we’re twins, Lucy remarked. Even when we dress alike, we don’t resemble sisters, much less twins. Even friends have asked us to provide our birth certificates as evidence.

The couple’s three older siblings are “something in-between,” according to the couple.

Lucy said, “Most twins appear to be like two peas in a pod, but we couldn’t look any more different if we tried.

Non-identical twins, sometimes referred to as fraternal twins, are created when two separate eggs are fertilized by two separate sperm. Fraternal twins are the most typical type of twins.
