Twins with Different Fathers


Twin babies born to a single mother have two fathers. The rare case came into light in Hoa Binh in Vietnam after DNA test was conducted.

The twins are presently two years old. The father of the babies noticed that hair of one baby is very thick and that of the other is not. He suspected that the hospital staff might have replaced a baby and approached for DNA test. As the tests were conducted, it was revealed that the twins were born to a single mother but different fathers.

Doctors say that the scenario occurs very rarely. When an egg is released in a woman’s system, it is active from 12 to 48 hours. If a woman takes part in sexual activity with two men during this time, twin babies could be born, said medical experts.
