Twins Have Two Different Fathers!

A mother of twins in Texas discovers that they have two separate fathers. The mother, Mia Washington, cheated on her partner, James Harrison, with another man. One of her eggs was fertilized by James Harrison’s sperm and the second egg was fertilized by the other man, thereby causing fraternal twins with two separate fathers. (Identical twins occur when a single egg is fertilized by a single sperm and then, when it is a zygote, splits into two which creates a natural clone of it’s self. A DNA test to determine if twins are fraternal or identical is called a Twin Zygosity Test.)

In order for it this to occur, “The infidelity would have had to occur within a 24 to 48 hour period,” says Dr. Joseph Finkelstein, a Manhattan OBGYN. “Once the egg is released and is fertilized, the system shuts down, so although it technically could happen, it would have to happen in two days or less.” The likelihood of having twins without any medical intervention such as the use of fertility drugs is about 1 in 100, Finkelstein says.

    All I can say is maintain it up. This webpage is indeed required in the time when every person just really wants to speak about how quite a few persons someones cheated on their wife with. I suggest, thanks for bringing intelligence back on the net, its been sorely missed. Good things. Please continue to keep it coming!
