Kelani and Jarani Dean are twins but have different appearances! Kalani (left) has light skin and blue eyes while Jarani (right) has dark skin and brown eyes.  The girls’ parents, Whitney Meyer and Tomas Dean at first couldn’t believe they were twins. Meyer has been posting about the girls since they were born, back in April.  Meyer is white and Tomas is black, which explains the controversy between the biracial twins. The twins are dizygotic, which is the scientific term for fraternal twins.  Which means, that each baby started out as a separate fertilized egg. Although the procedure is different for monozygotic or identical twins. For identical twins, they start off from the same egg and then divide. In a fraternal twin situation, each baby inherits a different combination of genes from mom and dad. Since the parents are from different ethnic groups, it is possible that they inherited genes for skin color differently.
