MILWAUKEE -- Twin babies recently made national headlines because of how different they look. That's when a mother in Milwaukee sent an email to FOX6 News, indicating she also has biracial twins. While you may wonder how this happens, Daunte and Jessica Norman said it couldn't have worked out better.Twin brothers Brayden and Cameron have a lot in common. They love to swing, and you can tell who they're rooting for on any given football Sunday.But can you tell they're twins?Brayden and Cameron NormanDaunte and Jessica Norman"They get attention everywhere they go!" Jessica Norman said.At first, even their parents did a double take."To see how different they were, it was funny. I couldn't see them (after they were born), so my reaction was completely coming from him -- and between him and the nurses, they were like, 'you are never going to believe how different they look,'" Jessica Norman said.The 15-month-old boys are fraternal twins -- an indication they do not look exactly alike.Brayden and Cameron Norman"We had no idea what they would end up looking like and throughout the pregnancy, we said, 'I wonder what they will end up looking like?' And just having little conversations, like, 'who will they look like,' like normal parents do," Jessica Norman said.For Jessica and Daunte Norman, the curiosity also included skin color."We always said, 'imagine if one does come out really dark, and one does come out light,' and it really did!" Jessica Norman said.Brayden and Cameron Norman"It kinda blew my mind, but at the same time, it was unique. We ain't gonna have no problem telling these babies apart. No red and blue sock for us! We knew exactly who was who from the get go," Daunte Norman said.But when the family is out and about, it's not always smooth sailing.Brayden and Cameron Norman"Sometimes people stare too much," Daunte Norman said."I think we're so used to it now, but we're blessed with that opportunity to say 'this can happen,' and there's not one feature for a mixed child that they all have," Jessica Norman said.Daunte and Jessica Norman and SydenyIn fact, with her fair skin and blonde hair, you might not realize big sister Sydeny is biracial. Jessica and Daunte said they hope their family can show the world love is more than skin deep."It's more of a teaching opportunity for us. If we were to have those wheels turning...and they're looking at us at dinner, like, 'is he the dad of both? Are they twins? How does this work? What's the dynamic?' We can use it as a teaching tool. 'Hey, they're bi-racial brothers. The same, but they look totally different,'" Jessica Norman said.Brayden and Cameron NormanThey have this advice for other parents in the same situation:"If someone is out there like us, share it. Be proud of it. Don't be afraid of it. Embrace it, so your children do," Jessica Norman said.One British geneticist estimated this happens with one in every 500 twin births.
