“They look so much alike. Two cuties!!!!!”

“You can see the resemblance in their features”

Among the comparison remarks, a couple of people mentioned that Cairo and Ariah look somewhat similar because they are genetically half-siblings due to their mothers being identical twins.

One wrote, “As their mothers are identical twins, their kids are genetically half-siblings.” Another said, “Practically Sisters from a genetic standpoint! (Twins) love they have that bond! They are so beautiful. You and Tamara did good! Oh, and Corey and Adam too! Lol.”

According to the National Genome Research Institute, identical twins or monozygotic twins result from the fertilization of a single egg being split into two, and share all of their genes. 

Tia and Tamera confirmed they were identical twins in 2013 while filming their reality show after assuming they were for years based on their strongly similar physical appearance.
