Mother of one black and one black albino twin admits strangers ask if the children are hers - because of the colour of their ski

The mum of these twins has no problem telling them apart after they were born with with different skin colours - one black and one white.Daniel and David Omirin were born just minutes apart, but they couldn't look less like brothers.Despite parents Stacy, 30, and Babajide, 38, being black, baby David has pale white skin and golden hair.While his brother Daniel, has black skin and dark curly hair - just like his parents and four-year-old sister Demilade.It's because little David is albino - his skin and hair lack pigmentation due to a congenital absence of melanin.The twins - who both have beautiful brown eyes - attract attention every time they go outside in Lagos, Nigeria.Mum Stacy, a clothes designer, said the pair are treated like celebs whilst out and about  and people often question whether both kids are hers.Stacy said: "I have to answer questions all the time when we are out."People say 'excuse me madam, which one of the kids is yours?'"I just say both of them are mine and people look at me as if I am joking."But I was surprised too when they were born, even as their mum."When the doctor told me my kids are not identical I didn't know what to expect."But then I saw they had different colour hair and skin and I couldn't believe it, so I'm not surprised other people are shocked too." Daniel and his fair-skinned brother David were born on February 26 in Lagos, Nigeria.Mum-of-three, Stacy, delivered the twins by c-section and recalled the moment she first clapped eyes on her unique babies.She had no idea they had different skin colours until they were born."It was a massive surprise", she said."Daniel came first, and then the nurse said the second baby has golden hair."I thought how can this be possible.

I looked down and saw David, he was completely white."I called my husband in so he could see what we had here.

I didn't understand."He couldn't believe what he saw either.

They are so adorable and it felt like we had been given a miracle."In Nigeria I have never seen a thing like this.

To be honest I have never seen anything like this before in twins."They do look like brothers but their hair and skin are just completely different."Stacy said nurses and doctors flocked to her bedside to take photographs of the newborns.Many medics had "never seen anything like it", she said.David was born with a condition called oculocutaneous albinism and affects one in 20,000 births each year.There are no figures available for how many sets of twins are born where only one has albinism, although other cases have been reported in The Netherlands and Mozambique.Stacy and the twins were discharged from hospital after four days.And when she introduced the tots to friends and family for the first time - their instant reaction was "wow".Stacy said: "The family think they are wonderful and they are very popular in our family."They are so beautiful and cute and to all of us they are adorable."Stacy believes she is "blessed" to be the mother of Daniel and David who despite their obvious visual differences, have matching playful personalities.The twins are the best of friends who love to dance with dad Babajide, who works at a printing firm.They are treated like "local celebs" when out and about in Lagos, according to Stacy, who has said people often stop her in the street to ask questions.Stacy said: "A lot of people have never seen anything like it and because of that they are quite popular."If I go to the bank or the shop everyone wants to say hi."I don't blame them, they are beautiful and cute."I have never had any negative comments and I am not scared of what people think."It feels great to me to be their mum.

It doesn't matter to me what colour their skin is because they are my babies."All that matters is that I have my boys."Incidences of oculocutaneous albinism are rare in African countries and Stacy believes David could be one of the only albino babies in Lagos.She has also recalled times when women have told her they will "pray" at night, hoping to one day give birth to twins like Daniel and David."To meet babies like Daniel and David is not common here", said Stacy."They are special to everyone and I love them."It feels special to be their mother because they are a special kind of twins."I believe I am blessed and I am so proud of them."Stacy added how she has recently been contacted by a UK-based modelling agency who have got in touch regarding potential photoshoots.Plans are at an early stage but a possible trip to England has already been discussed, she said.Stacy is now looking forward to spending her first Christmas at home with Daniel, David and the rest of her family.
