Baby Fever Alert! These Fraternal Twin Sisters Are Proof Black Is Beautiful In Every Shade

Baby Fever Alert! These Fraternal Twin Sisters Are Proof Black Is Beautiful In Every Shade

With their big beautiful eyes and precious baby curls, it's hard not to catch the fever. But the other special part of their sisterhood is how they represent the beauty of Blackness. They may look like spitting images of each other, but the obvious difference is each baby's gorgeous shade of skin.

ESSENCE spoke to the twins mother, Clementina Shipley, about her bundles of joy and the social media response she's gotten regarding their differences. 

"Isabella is a calm baby and super laid back. She giggles whenever you stare at her and loves to be tickled. Gabriella started crawling at 5 months as has not stopped moving since. She a smiling ball of energy and loves to snuggle," Shipley said of the 7-month-olds. 

The twins first hit the social media timeline in July when they stared doe-eyed into the camera and instantly made everyone smile. Sadly, some trolled the infants Instagram — Little Strong Girls — because one is of the twins is visibly lighter than the other. But Shipley and her husband are letting the good outweigh the bad and will continue to do so in making sure their daughters always feel comfortable in their skin.
