Twins with Different Fathers

Did anyone else hear about this? It’s crazy. You’d think that once you’re pregnant you can’t get doubly pregnant.

So, guys, watch out for those promiscuous women out there, pregnant or not…

A pair of twins born in Dallas aren't brothers. Instead, they are half-brothers because they have different fathers.

Their mother said that she had an affair that resulted in the two babies who were born at the same time, but fathered by two different men.
She seemed proud to be telling the news story about it too.

Lab results show there is a zero percent chance that the two 11-month-old boys, Justin and Jordan, have the same father.

Learning time: When twins have two fathers, doctors call it heteropaternal superfecundation and there are very few documented cases. The doctor said that it can happen when a woman releases multiple eggs during ovulation. If she has more than one sexual partner within the same time period, sperm cells can fertilize two separate eggs.
