When Stacy and Babajide looked closely at their infant sons, they were astounded to see that, other than their large brown eyes, they didn’t resemble one other.
Stacy and Babajide of Lagos decided to grow their family after welcoming a stunning daughter into the world. They were, therefore, ecstatic to learn that they were expecting twin boys this time when they found out they were pregnant again.
She was ecstatic to believe their baby sons, Daniel and David Omirin, were doing well after the 31-year-old mother underwent cesarean surgery. But Stacy and Babajide were shocked when their boys showed up.
Their stunning wide brown eyes distinguished the twins, who came only minutes apart.
It came as a huge shock.
Like their five-year-old sister Demilade, Daniel has a dark complexion and black curly hair. David is fair-skinned and has golden locks. There are no white parents.
“While I was pregnant, we were unaware of their disparities. The scan did not indicate this, so when the first twin, Daniel, emerged with black hair and the second twin, David, emerged with gold hair, it was a great surprise and the most incredible moment. The doctors told me that since I had them through CS, “It looks like you are getting entirely unidentical twins.” Before I knew it, nurses were entering the room to examine them.
Although Stacy fell in love immediately, she wasn’t sure how Babajide would feel.
“Their father was so overjoyed that he instantly dubbed My Twin 2 (David) “Golden,” thus he affectionately refers to him as Mr. Golden. Upon seeing his boys, he was ecstatic. He remained there for more than ten minutes, gazing at them and claiming they were God’s greatest gift.
Lack of melanin, the pigment responsible for the color of one’s skin, hair, and eyesresults in albinism, a hereditary disorder. It may afflict anyone and has no regard for ethnicity or gender.
Between one in 3,000 and one in 20,000 people are born with albinism. David’s pale complexion and golden curls are the results of oculocutaneous albinism.
Fortunately, David has no health complications, even though some people with albinism can have eye problems. According to statistics, Nigeria has one of the highest rates of albinism worldwide.
In Sub-Saharan Africa, estimates range from one in 5,000 to one in 15,000 persons, according to the World Health Organization. According to the NGO Under the Same Sun, one in 20,000 persons in Europe and North America have the illness.
Even though over two million albinos live there, they frequently face prejudice and bullying. Thankfully, Stacy has never overheard anybody say anything negative about her sons.
There are usually side chats when we’re out. People are curious in how and what is happening, and maybe because they are so endearing and lovely, you just want to walk up to them and say hello.
The family has been contacted regarding the young boys modeling since the youngsters are so beautiful.
For people to understand more about David’s albinism and follow the boys as they grow up, Stacy set up an Instagram account.
Because we think they have a narrative to tell the world and also as a means of raising awareness, we made an account for them.
Despite being identical twins, the boys do differ in meaningful ways. David prefers to take a back seat and watch his surroundings, whereas Daniel is more outspoken.
David is a little pickier about his cuisine, whereas Daniel eats everything. However, they are both happy, loving little guys.
It was as though we had been granted a miracle since they are so gorgeous.
Stacy is a fashion designer, so even though the boys are always dressed pretty professionally, she frequently gets asked if both boys are hers.
‘Excuse me, lady, which one of the youngsters is yours?’ is a common phrase. People look at me as if I’m kidding when I just declare that both of them are mine. But even as their mother, I was taken aback when they were born. When the doctor informed me that my kids weren’t similar, I wasn’t sure what to anticipate. I was stunned when I realized they had varied complexion and hair colors, so I’m not surprised if other people are.
The only things the guys are genuinely aware of are their love and friendship for one another.
Even though racial inequality is an important topic nationwide, Stacy has never faced any criticism.
“Since they are my babies, it doesn’t matter to me what color their skin is. The fact that I have my boys is all that counts.
These two brothers are just too cute. While others will always notice their skin tone when they meet them, what matters most is the character each one of them grows into due to their devoted family.
