Kalani and Jarani are from Quincy in Illinois, America, and while Kalani has her mum's light skin, Jarani has a darker complexion like her dad. Kalani and Jarani Dean are a set of 9-moth-old twins from Quincy in IL who each respectively take after their mother and their father. There's only a one in 500 chance twins born to mixed race parents will have different skin colours.

Meyer says Kalani is energetic and crawling, while her twin sister has yet to crawl. Meyer said she always dresses the girls the same - otherwise, people never believe they are twins.

In 2015, another set of twins in the United Kingdom went viral after people constantly confused them as friends.

"They are my miracle babies", Whitney said. "One is light and one is mixed, but we love them the same".

"In this family, we don't see color", said Meyer.

"At first when they were born, I wanted to believe it, but it's so rare I didn't think it'd happen to my twins!"

"He's so innocent, he doesn't understand racial tensions, because to him it doesn't matter, as it shouldn't matter to anyone else", she said.

The Black Stars prepare for their second group C tie against Mali, with Frank Acheampong replacing, injured Baba Rahman . A loss will see them out of the tournament, which they are returning to after 39 years of absence.

The response she has gotten for her twins has been "heartwarming", she told People. Whitney is Caucasian, while her boyfriend Tomas is an African-American. And yet whenever this happens to children of an interracial couple, we tend to treat the kids like zoo attractions. "And that explains the different skin tones".

Kalani, left, and Jarani are fraternal twins, meaning that they developed from two different eggs that were each fertilized by a separate sperm cell.

Like all twins, the girls are also distinct in ways besides their skin color.

"Kalani, she has more of a personality like her mother", Dean said.

"We don't see color".

The birth of the twins is bittersweet for the couple who lost their two-year-old son, Pravyn, in a drowning accident two years ago.
