Rare Twins

A couple in Lichtenberg, Germany had a surprise last week when their twin boys were born.  One twin was white and the other one black.  The boys mother, Florence is from Ghana, West Africa and their father, Stephen from Germany.   

The chance of different colour twins is so rare that medical experts put the odds at one-in-a-million.

Ryan and Leo are doing well, and Mum and Dad are pleased to have two healthy little babies.
