 'Black and White Twins'

A woman in Germany has given birth to a set of black and white twins in what is a rare event.

Leo looks like his mother with dark skin. His brother, Ryan, on the other hand, looks more like his father with light-colored skin.

According to medical experts, the birth of different coloured babies is a one-in-a-million occurrence.

The twins' mother, Florence, 35, is from Ghana, West Africa while their father, Stephan, is German, reports News.com.au.

Stephan, 40, said though the couple were surprised by the colourings, the most important thing was the babies were healthy.

The infants caused a sensation at the Sana Hospital in Lichtenberg, Germany, where they were born last week, with guests crowding around to greet the new arrivals.
