Every family is unique, but in some cases, they are quite astonishingly individual.
Siblings who look entirely different, extraordinary twins, or families who have set world records, here are ten families like you’ve never seen before.
10 /10 Maria And Lucy
Anybody who meets Maria and Lucy Douglas would assume them to be just friends, but the girls are sisters and twins. Non-identical, but still twins, although one is white and the other black.
Bi-racial twins are rare but not unheard of. As far as they’re concerned, the girls are happy they’re not confused for one another.
9 /10 The Wilson Boys
Natasha Wilson is the proud mother of six healthy boys. What makes them so unique is the way they were born. Natasha was pregnant three times.
The first time she gave birth to a son named Nicholas. The second time she had twins, James and Isaiah.
The third time around, she had triplets, again, all boys. All the pregnancies were natural, with no fertility treatment involved.
As you might have guessed, the Wilsons decided to put a stop to the baby-making part of their lives as they were afraid they’d get quadruplets the next time and, much as they love kids, they cannot afford another four of them.
8 /10 Carmen And Lupita
The girls are more than twins; they’re conjoined twins and share the same body. The Andrade girls cannot ever be separated, but they’ve come to terms with their condition and have managed to enjoy everyday life as much as possible, even pursuing their hobbies. This means the other has to be present, obviously, but they get along just fine.
While they didn’t learn to walk until they were four, they’ve since learned to control their body so well they even passed their driver’s license test.
They plan to work as veterinaries or something to do with animals for the future, as they both have a passion for them.
7 /10 Katie And Priscilla Churcher
If you’re at all familiar with Mormons, you’ve probably heard the term sister wives. Well, Katie and Priscilla Churcher took polygamy to a whole new level, as the two sisters are married to the same man.
It is Katie who is legally married to Travis, while her sister’s union with him was only blessed in a church service.
Together, they have eight children with Travis. Oddly enough, the kids are both siblings and cousins simultaneously, but life is easier for the mothers as they can take turns watching the kids.
