A mum of biracial twin sons has been forced to explain that the boys are twin brothers as strangers can’t believe that they’re related.
Jade Ball, from Salford, Greater Manchester, is the mum of biracial one-year-old twins Cole and Klay, who strangers can’t believe are twins due to the difference in their skin colour and hair colour.
The 32-year-old says that the twins are the mix of her and her partner, Kade, who is half Jamaican.
Klay was born with blue eyes and blonde hair and his twin brother, Cole, has brown hair, brown eyes and dark skin.
Jade said: “When we meet new people they never believe me when I tell them that Klay and Cole are twins.
“They think I am joking with them.
“But then when they realise I am being serious and telling the truth, people are completely fascinated by the boys and ask me so many questions about them.
“People always stop us when we are out and about too and want to chat to me about the twins.
The twin‘s dad, Kade, is half Jamaican and I am white British.
“When we found out we were having twins, we didn’t really think too much about what they would look like.
“I guess we just assumed that they would both a tanned mixture of me and their dad and look like their older brother, Cruz, now two-years-old.
“I never expected them to be born the total opposite of each other.
“It was really obvious when they were born but as they are getting older they are looking even more different.”
Klay is like his mum‘s side of the family, whereas Cole resembles his dad’s side of the family with Jamaican heritage.
Jade says that the way her boys look amazes her every day and she loves how different they are.
The mum-of-three added: “I think it’s really cool that they look the opposite to each other.
“It’s fascinating and just shows how crazy genes are. They don’t really look related at all.
“They’re so different but equally beautiful.
“And I just keep noticing more and more differences as they continue to grow.
“Although they look completely different, when you see them together you just know they’re brothers.
“They have a beautiful bond. They’re like a little team and they love playing with their older brother too.
“Klay is the leader. He is confident, mischievous, and into everything.
“Whereas Cole is slightly more reserved than Klay, he loves dancing around the house but he also loves having cuddles with me.
“But they they love attention off people and are little show offs.
“They recently signed to a couple of modelling agencies, Nemesis and Lacara, and they have both absolutely loved doing some recent modelling jobs
“I love my boys and how unique they are.
“I couldn’t imagine them any other way, it makes them who they are.”
