One mom was surprised to find out that her twins had two different fathers.
Having twins isn’t really considered a miracle, but it’s indeed a rarity. What’s even rarer, however, is when you have a set of twins from two different dads. And this is exactly what happened to this particular mom.
The woman in question recently bore a set of twin babies. She was identified only as “T. M.” from New Jersey, US. Apparently, the mom couldn’t cope with raising her twins, so she asked the state to give her financial aid for the children. And that’s when she found out that her twin kids weren’t from the same father. As it turned out, the woman had slept not only with her partner, but with another man as well. Thus, the court reviewing her plea for financial aid ordered her to make a paternity test in order to prove who the father of the twins is. Shockingly enough, the twins had different dads.
Before you even start questioning the possibility of a set of twins being fathered from two different men, you should know that this can really happen. The phenomenon is called “superfecundation”. Superfecundation is rare, but not impossible. According to official reports, it can occur in 13,000 cases of twin babies.
The mom received the shocking news and admitted that she had slept with the other man apparently a week after she had slept with her partner. Thus, both men fathered her twins, just like the test results said. The dads’ names remain anonymous. However, it has been reported that both men have to pay child support for the twins – each dad for his own kid.
Let’s hope this solves the woman’s financial problems, because it looks like she might have some problems with her partner.
