Couple gifted with rare black-and-white twins gets the same incredible blessing 7 years later

When sisters Hayleigh and Lauren Durrant are out in public, people often ask them to show their IDs to prove they’re twins.

Many people wouldn’t believe that the girls have the same parents because Lauren was born white, while Hayleigh is black.

It’s a rare phenomenon in itself, but seven years later, their parents were blessed with another set of girl twins—and they have the same varied coloring, too!
Hayleigh and Lauren said they never get bored of people’s stunned reactions upon learning they are twins. However, being unique can come with its own disadvantages.

“Some people can be really rude. They’ll say, ‘You’re lying, you aren’t twins — prove it!’” Hayleigh, who has dark skin and black hair like her dad Dean, said in their exclusive interview with The Sun in 2019.

Doctors were amazed when the pair were born in early 2001 looking so different, as the odds of this phenomenon is just one in 500,000.

Hayleigh and Lauren were separated into different classes at secondary school, but they made sure they were never apart outside of school.

This separation resulted in them now having varying interests. At the time of their interview with The Sun, Hayleigh was studying drama and theater studies and sociology in college, while Lauren was taking up art and business studies.
