Medical Miracle: Woman gives birth to baby twins who have two different dads
A new mum has given birth to twins, who have two different fathers.
The incredible case was revealed after the woman, identified only as T.M., named her current boyfriend as the father of her twins.
But T.M. admitted before maternity papers were signed that she had actually slept with a different man a week after she believed she conceived with her boyfriend.
A paternity test was carried out and it was revealed that the two men had each fathered one of the twins, who are now toddlers.
Now the woman’s original partner only has to pay out child support for one of the children.
Passaic County Judge Sohail Mohammad made the ruling in the paternity case, the New Jersey Law Journal reported.
Paternity tests showed the woman’s former boyfriend was almost certainly the father of one twin – but wasn’t the father of the other.
Now he only has to pay out $28 – around £18 – per week for his daughter.
Judge Mohammad said he found just two other court cases of a woman giving birth to twins from separate dads, which occurs in one out of every 13,000 reported paternity cases involving twins.
It seems medically impossible, but a woman can give birth to twins with two fathers when she has sex with two different men in the same week.
