One of the funny moments many identical twins of the same sex used to enjoy is when they have to explain to a stranger how to tell them apart. But, totally different is the case of Lucy and Maria Aylmer. According to them, what they can't recall is how many times they have had to present their birth certificates in order to convince an outsider that they are actually twins.
Lucy and Maria were born in January 16, 1997 to a multiracial family. Their mother, Donna, is half Jamaican while their father, Vince, is White. This, in part, explains Lucy and Maria's contrasting appearances.
Unidentical twins also called dizygotic or fraternal twins happen when two different eggs are fertilized by two different sperms at the same time. As a dizygotic twins, Lucy and Maria inherited two different copies of every genes from their two parents: one from mum, one from dad.
Accidentally, Their mother's genes are expressed in Maria (dominant) while their father's are masked (recessive). And, their father's genes are expressed in Lucy while their mother's are masked.
Lucy has straight ginger hair, deep blue eyes, and a very fair English rose complexion, courtesy of her paternal grandmother. On the other hand, Maria has a thick curly hair, sparkling brown eyes, and far darker skin, courtesy her maternal lineage. "No one ever believes we are twins. Even when we dress alike, we still don't look like sisters, let alone twins. Friends have even made us produce our birth certificates to prove it." - Lucy once said in an interview.
Lucy studied art and design, and she enjoys clubbing, while Maria studied law and psychology, and her puppy seems to be her best mate. Well, at 24, the ladies are of age already, Lucy and her partner welcomed their first baby in 2020 while Maria seems to have found love.
