    This happened to me with my SIL and nephew who is 6 months older than my kids.  Except the person asked if all 3 were twins.... Indifferent

    The best is when you tell them one of each and they ask, "Are they identical?"  SMH  I get asked if mine are identical all the time..uh one is brunette and the other is blonde.,,NO!

    It can happen when one egg splits and gets fertilized by 2 separate sperm but it is extremely rare and most poeple aren't even aware that can happen.

    I hate correcting people, but b/g twins are not identical. Even if the egg spilt before it was fertilized (very rare) two different sperm would make them not identical. The only way identical twins can be identical is if a fertilized egg spilts and the baby has the EXACT same DNA (X and Y chromosomes too).

    No, B/G twins can be monozygotic but it's a result of a missing chromosome for the girl.  The girl ends up with Turner Syndrome.  Extremely rare.
