Meet Daniel and David, identical, yet quite different twin brothers from Nigeria. Although they share same parents, and both have big brown eyes, these cute siblings have contrasting skin and hair color. Daniel is black, just like his mom, dad, and his older sister, while David is white and has golden-colored hair, result of albinism, a genetic condition affecting 1 in 20,000 people.

Their mother, Stacy, said that none of the scans showed David was different from his twin brother, so when the boys were delivered everyone was quite shocked. Speaking to Bored Panda, she revealed how the first thing doctors told her was “It seems you are having totally unidentical twins.”

Decide

People with albinism are likely to experience health issues, including ones related to their vision, but according to the proud mother, David is perfectly healthy.

She also shared how her husband reacted after seeing his boys for the first time.

“Their dad was really overwhelmed and immediately named My Twin 2 (David) ‘Golden,’ so he fondly calls him Mr. Golden. He was all overjoyed seeing his boys. He stood for more than 10 minutes staring at them and said he was just looking at God’s wonderful work and that they are his best gift ever,” she told Bored Panda.

The family receives a lot of attention but there are never any mean comments regarding David’s unique appearance.

“There’re always side talks whenever we go out, people often wanna know how and what’s happening and maybe due to their cute and adorable nature, you just wanna come close to say hello,” Stacy shared.

Wanting to allow her sons tell a story, one of understanding and appreciation, Stacy opened an Instagram account for them. There, she shares lots of beautiful photos of her little jewels. So far, they have around 26K followers from all over the world. They also get offers from a bunch of modeling agencies, mostly from the UK.

Daniel and David steal the hearts of everyone who stumbles upon their photos. We truly believe they will make successful models one day if their parents decide to accept any of the offers.

Their mom says that besides their physical appearance, her boys are opposite of one another when it comes to their characters, too. In February this year, they will turn 3!

Daniel and David are truly special and very beautiful in their own right.
