Model has two skin tones after fusing with unborn sister in womb (9 Pics)


Taylor Muhl always suspected she had a twin but she never thought the birthmark on her stomach was actually her sister fused to her body.
The California singer, 33, absorbed her fraternal twin while in the womb. 
But it wasn't until 2009 that she was diagnosed with a rare condition called Chimerism.


 Everything on Muhl's left side of her body is slightly larger and she has two immune immune systems and two blood streams.
Most noticeably, Muhl's torso is divided straight down the middle with her skin color on one side and her twin's pigmentation on the other. The large marking makes Muhl's case even more rare because most Chimeras only display the symptoms internally or have very tiny marks.

Until now, Muhl has kept her condition a secret but she wants to embrace what makes her unique and encourage others to do the same.

Muhl, a model and singer, said she was obsessed with twins when she was growing up. 





 Chimerism is an extremely rare medical condition and is when an individual is composed of two or more genetically distinct cell lines originating from different zygotes.
