Twins With Different Dads

twinsHi, Cafe Kierna here!

A woman in Dallas, Texas knew there was something very different about her 11-month old fraternal twins Justin and Jordan--and was she ever right. She took her boys to a DNA lab and learned they have different fathers!

Advertisement reported that lab results in Dallas show a zero percent chance that the boys have the same father. The occurrence of twins with two fathers is extremely rare--only a handful of documented cases in the world--but it does happen; it's called "heteropaternal superfecundation."

This is how doctors explain it: If a woman releases multiple eggs during ovulation (which could normally mean twins or multiples) and she has sex with more than one guy within the same time period, two separate eggs can be fertilized. Think fraternal twins, except the two different sperm actually come from two different people. Again, this is ridiculously rare.

Is there a worse possible situation for this woman to be in? Not only is she guilty of an affair (unprotected, at that) and now she's totally busted, but she also has children to eventually explain all of this this to. Boys!

A shocked Mia Washington told reporters, “I’m trying to let everybody else know: Don’t put yourself in my shoes, because it can hurt and it does hurt, but you still have to go on with life.” 

Have you ever heard of a story like this?
