PostSubject: Texas mum Mia Washington has ''twins'' to different dads   May 20th 2009, 2:05 am

http://www.news.com.au/story/0,27574,25500537-401,00.html

ASTONISHED US medics say there's "an overwhelming 99.999 per cent chance" that a set of 11-month-old Texan twins have been born to different fathers.

Babies Justin and Jordan Washington arrived just seven minutes apart, UK tabloid The Sun reports, but were conceived separately because their mother Mia was cheating on partner James Harrison.

A disbelieving Mia, 20, told The Sun: “Out of all the people in America and all the people in the world, this had to happen to me.”

The Texas mum admitted having the affair at the time she conceived, and submitted to a paternity test because the two boys looked so unalike.

The double pregnancy is known technically as “heteropaternal superfecundation”.

It can occur when a woman woman releases multiple eggs during ovulation, which can be fertilised individually by sperm cells from separate partners.


Genny Thibodeaux, from Clear Diagnostics DNA Lab which did the test, said: “It’s crazy. Most people don’t believe it can happen but it really can.”

The test result means the boys will now be officially referred to as half-brothers.

i feel a little sorry for the boys when they grow up. it'll be a hard thing to explain about being twins but only half brothers. hopefully it wont be a big issue for them in the future.
