''Joshua looked like me and Jakob was pale. We were completely stunned."
Besides having different complexions, the twins also have different personalities.
''Joshua has a ''true people person,'' who thrives on interactions with others. Jakob, on the other hand, is more of an observer. He likes to sit and take it all in."

My Chinese lover abandoned me
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a 27-year-old woman is pleading for help after a Chinese man she got twins with left the country, leaving her stranded.
In 2015, Syengo Purity got a job with a Chinese company. Here she met a Chinese man, and they hit it off. In 2017 the two began dating, and he indicated that he was ready to settle with Purity.
The man would often go to China and come back to Kenya. Their relationship budded well, and last year, the two decided to have a baby.
"So I got pregnant and this year in January we confirmed that I had twins. So he was to travel to China in March and come after 3 months. He knew that I was to get babies in July and by that time I knew he would be here."
