: MediaTakeOut.com just learned that a woman by the name of Florence Addo-Gerth gave birth to black and white twins named Ryan and Leo, at a hospital in Lichtenberg, Germany. Florence, who is originally from Ghana, is married to German-born Stephan Gerth.
Here’s how MSNBC is reporting it:
The maternity ward’s head doctor, Birgit Weber,told the news media:
“The first baby that was born, Ryan, has light skin and blue eyes. His brother, Leo, is dark-skinned with brown eyes.” “None of us could believe it.” “Both kids have definitely the same father.”
The odds of such events occurring are one in a million, say doctors, but it can happen with fraternal twins due to the genetic soup in our backgrounds.
