A series of photographs of two sisters with both the same biological parents has gone viral recently because there’s one glaringly obvious thing: the girls look completely different. Willimina and Valentina’s mother posted a few pictures of her adorable family to the Faceboook group “Love What Matters” explaining that she has been married to her husband Cortez for three years after meeting nine years ago.
“Creating a family is something that was very important to us,” she wrote, “and we were blessed with expecting our first daughter a few short months after being married.”
She continued, explaining how “when our daughter, Willimina Daisy, was born everyone told us she was a spitting image of her father.” And she does, Willimina has her father’s skin coloring and looks just like him. Baby Valentina, on the other hand, looks incredibly different from her dad and sister, with a fair complexion and light auburn hair, just like her mother.
“When we were expecting our second daughter, Valentina Janie, I joked that she would be my mini me. Never in a million years would I have guessed she would be born with fair skin, auburn hair, blue eyes, and truly my mini me,” the woman wrote.
And the mother went on to say that despite her daughters looking very different, they will never treat one another any differently. They’re sisters, they always will be, and their appearances don’t make any difference to that.
“Watching our girls grow up and interact is truly the greatest gift in the world. The only difference Willimina sees in her baby sister is that she has ‘big chunky cheeks,” the Facebook post reads. And what cute cheeks they are!
