A mother has responded after there was confusion when she revealed that her two sons with different skin tones are biological brothers.

Maddie Houser Webb often takes to TikTok to share videos about her family and occasionally engages in question-and-answer sessions.

Back in October, Maddie responded to a question regarding her two sons, Jaden, 15, and Callum, 3, about whether they are biologically related due to having different skin tones.

"Are those both your sons?" the text on the video asked. Maddie, Jaden, and Callum, who were recording together, gave a thumbs up and gave an enthusiastic "yes".

As the Q&A continued, another question read "Is one of them adopted?" to which the family simply replied "Nope."

Maddie then went on to clarify that she gave birth to both of her children and that they are indeed biologically related.

The mother of the two boys has since spoken to People to further clear up any confusion, hopefully putting an end to the questions once and for all.

"My husband and I are Mom and Dad to them both. My sons are technically maternal half-brothers. But we would never say 'half'," Maddie said.

She continued: "People comment on how our family looks often, especially with our presence on social media. Our comment sections are often filled with lots of questions but also many people who come from families that look just like ours. We think representation is so important."

Despite their age gap, Maddie is clearly full of pride as she reflects on the bond shared between her sons. "The boys love to shoot hoops together and watch movies. Cal cheers Jaden on at his sports games and meets. We also travel a lot as a family, so they go on lots of adventures."

Comments flooded in on the TikTok video, with one person writing: "People clearly don’t know how genetics work lol I would assume one has a black father and one has a white father," to which Maddie replied: "100%".

A second person said: "Why do people always have something to say. Y’all got a beautiful family," while a third added: "People who obsess about siblings not looking like each other need to get a life. All that matters is that they are loved & cared for."

Another person shared their experiences: "I had a set of fraternal TWINS in my class once, one the spitting image of his Kenyan dad, the other blond & blue eyed like mom. Genetics are wild."
