The mother was speechless after giving birth to her one millionth pair of twins.
Shantel Broughton, 29, was in for a big surprise when her twins, baby girl Azira and baby son Aion, joined her family back in April.
While Azira has a dark complexion and hazel eyes, her twin brother Aion has light skin tone and green eyes.
The mother-of-three also explained that Azira’s skin continued to darken for weeks after giving birth, while Aion’s skin tone remained light.
Chantelle has since spoken out and credited her and her husband with the origin of her twins’ unique differences.
As she said, she looks white, although her maternal grandfather is Nigerian. Meanwhile, the twins’ father is half Jamaican, half Scottish.
“I’m so glad they’ve become who they are – our own unique little family,” said the proud mom.
“Azira was a little darker at birth, but we can’t say for sure. Now that weeks have passed, she’s gotten to the point where she’s darker than her father.”
Chantelle also insisted that the twins have very different personalities but are very attached to each other.
“Every few weeks, friends and family still say they can’t believe it. Azira is really laid back and relaxed while Aion needs a lot more attention,” she added.
“He always wants to be rocked and chats all the time. Azira does this infrequently. But I noticed that now they really look at each other and smile more.”
The mother continued, “I think they will stay that way. I think their hair will be different too. Azira will have thick and curly hair, while Aion will have completely different hair. You can already feel the difference in texture.”
As doctors previously suggested, such cases are very rare, according to some estimates, only one in a million twins turns out to be similar to Azira and Aion.

An 11-year-old boy who survived a car accident woke up from a coma and found out on Google that four of his cousins had died.
Despite being unconscious for more than two months, Charbel Cassas now talks and walks.
His cousins, Sienna, 9, Veronica, 11, Angelina, 12, and Anthony, 13, were killed instantly when drunk driver Samuel William Davidson, 29, lost control of his car at Bettington. Road in northwest Sydney.
Family members feared that Charbel would never recover from a severe head injury, but in early April he managed to wake up. When he picked up the phone and looked up the names of his cousins, he was shocked to learn that his cousins had died in a plane crash on February 1st.
One of his relatives, David Manna, told Daily Mail Australia that his family wanted Charbel to focus on his recovery.
Mr Manna said: “When he woke up, he did not know that Antony, Angelina, Sienna and Veronica were dead and the family had not yet had a chance to tell him about it.
“They wanted him to focus on his recovery, but he took the phone that was next to his bed and googled their names.
“He had a broken heart, but now he feels good, and it’s good that he is recovering. He’s really lucky.”
