This 31-year-old Nigerian woman had no idea what she was about to go through when she gave birth in February of that year. She can now distinguish her sons’ identical twins with ease. Even though Daniel and David were born only a few minutes apart, they don’t resemble one another at all.
Albinos are both of Stacy and Babaji de’s children, who are both black and reside in Lagos. The adorable twins frequently attract attention wherever they go as a result of their noticeably dissimilar appearances. David is stunningly white with pale skin and golden hair, whereas Daniel resembles his 5-year-old big sister Demilade and has dark skin and black curly hair.
After only a year, the twins had nearly 18,000 followers on Instagram thanks to Stacy’s decision to share the odd couple’s activities there.
The twins’ birth on February 26 of last year completely caught everyone off guard.
It was a tremendous surprise and the most fantastic moment when the first twin (Daniel) came out with black hair and the second twin (David) came out with gold hair because we were unaware of their differences when I was pregnant and the scan did not reflect such. The doctors told me that since I had them through CS, “It seems you are getting entirely unidentical twins.” Stacy, a mother of three children, told Bored Panda, “Nurses started coming out to look at them before I realized it.
It was impossible to differentiate between the twins since one was black and the other was white.
Stacy shared with us her husband’s heartfelt response to this turn of events.
Their father was so overjoyed that he instantly gave My Twin 2 (David) the nickname “Golden,” and now he calls him Mr. Golden. He was pleased to meet his boys. He remained there for more than ten minutes, gazing at them, and claimed that he was simply admiring God’s beautiful creation and that they were the best gift ever.
David falls into the highly unusual category of albinism; just 1 in 20,000 infants are born with this condition.
Albinism is a congenital condition that alters appearance due to a lack of melanin, the pigment generated in the skin, hair, and eyes. All racial and ethnic groups are impacted, and the type of pigmentation affects pigmentation to varying degrees. With a birth probability of between 3,000 and 20,000, albinism is a rare condition. Albinos must exercise extreme caution because it may result in a number of skin and vision problems.
David has gorgeous golden hair and an exceptionally pale complexion due to oculocutaneous albinism. Fortunately, Stacy claims that David has no health issues.
Nigeria is one of the nations with the greatest prevalence of albinism in the world with over two million confirmed or suspected cases. However, the statistics show that there is still a lot of prejudice against this community because of the color of its members’ skin. Over 600,000 albino Nigerians experience discrimination and harassment from their peers, family, and communities, which frequently results in difficulties on the job and academic failure.
Stacy did claim that her two sons are both unconditionally and equally adored and that no one has ever said anything unpleasant about them to her.
Every time we go out, there are always side conversations. People want to know how and what’s going on, and perhaps because they are so charming and adorable, you simply want to approach them and say hello.
The twins’ family has been receiving modeling offers from agencies in the UK due to their odd features. The family is ready to take advantage of any opportunities that may present themselves and has created an Instagram account to share their joy and draw attention to significant issues. Stacy and I decided to create an account for them in order to spread awareness since we believe they have a story to tell.
They are more than a year old, walking, and have two incredibly unique personalities, according to Stacy.
David is an observer, but Daniel is more outspoken. They both have a strong curiosity. They both have a lot of energy. Daniel enjoys eating, however David is a finicky eater. Daniel is also quite fun, whereas David picks his moments.
Now 3 years old, there are two really unique boys.
