Do your fraternal twins look alike??


Hi All,

I am now 17 weeks+4 fraternal twins, and we have recenty had it confirmed that they are boy/girl

I am aware of some girl/girl and boy/boy fraternal twins which look very alike despite being non-identical (like the Olsen twins MaryKate and Ashley are actually non-identical twins but look so alike they played idnetical twins ont he tv).

But I am really curious how often boy/girl twins look a lot alike?
I am blonde haired & blue eyed, and my OH is Brown haired & green eyed
so could go either way really LOL

So just curious to see what others have found after having their fraternal twins?

All different ages etc would be really interesting

They are no more related than siblings years apart in age so the answer is the same as - do brothers and sisters look alike? Some do some don't. I don't think my frat boys do (they are three in Jan) my Sis has b/g twins who are 6 and look similar but not alike now they are bigger her boy is a lot bigger than the girl so don't really get the twin attention anymore either.

But then again lots of people DO think my boys look alike xxxx

you can see in my pic that mine don't look alike at all! when they were born my girl looked like me and my boy like OH. Now it is the other way round.

Except that my son has blue eyes and OH has brown/green and I have brown eyes. Guess he got that from my granddad. my daughter has brown eyes.

at my local twins club there are b/g twins and they look very similar so like pp said - can go either way!

Okay, I would say your twinnies really look alike!! I actually wondered whether you were being sarcastic!

Mine are very similar looking they are both blonde haired and blue eyed!! I do get a lot if people that don't understand twins ask if they are identical! Even though they are boy/girl.

I wonder if one of my twins will have dark hair and olive skin like my husband and one will be fair skinned with light hair like me. Or if it will just be a blend of us both. I am dying to see what they look like!! My husband and I joke about who has the stronger genes. All the boys on his side of the family look so much alike I have a feeling our babies will look more like him...which is fine

I have known a couple friends who have younger or older siblings and they look SO much alike you would think they are twins. Me and my sisters (not twins) don't look a like at all really.

Mine are boys and apart from having white blond hair and blue eyes they look nothing alike feature-wise. All 4 of my kids have the 'family stamp' tho and look similar in terms of colouring, but one twin looks more like my eldest boy, and the other is like my daughter xx

I also think strangers will always perceive them as looking more alike than their mom and dad or close family members do.

My girl has the same olive complexion that my husband has (before they were born we chose the name Olive for her.) and she has his blood type. Other than that she looks exactly like me. My boy has my fair Irish skin and my blood type. Other than that he looks exactly like his dad. People often laugh when they see the four of us together.
