A mixed-race couple has wowed Britain with a set of twins, one black and one white – for the second time.

Dean Durrant, who is black, and his wife, Alison Spooner, who is white, welcomed twin girls in November, one of them dark-toned, the other very fair, The Sun reports. It was a miraculous repeat of 2001, when the couple had their first children, also twin girls, and also of opposite skin tones.

The elder twins' differences are more than skin deep, too. While Lauren, who is very fair, is a tomboy who adores Hannah Montana and is full of pep, twin Hayleigh, who is darker, likes dressing up and curling up with a book when she's not belting out High School Musical tunes.
