Twins fascinate me. When I was a kid I wanted to be one, give birth to a set, or at the very least befriend twin sisters that would astoundingly finish each other sentences and have wacky ESP moments. My brother had two sets of twin friends, all of whom I wanted to marry. I used to stare at their beautiful identical faces in the hopes that …
… they would fall in love with me. At the same time, and fight over me. Sadly it never happened.
Needless to say I am also fascinated by the recent mind-boggling twin story out of Poland. It appears that a woman in Poland has given birth to a little boy and his adorable sister from another mister. That’s right a set of twins with different fathers. The mother admittedly was having sex with her husband and another man while she was ovulating. And yes, I swear to God I am neither making this up nor stealing the plot line from Steinbeck’s East of Eden.
As if being a twin weren’t amazing enough, now these two babies that shared a womb will have different fathers. And I mean really, what are the chances? I guarantee these twins will end up being artsy as all hell. Just because.
The occurrence of having twins with two different fathers is extremely rare -so much so that there are only 7 documented cases.
I have a feeling that this married woman had alot of explaining to do when the DNA results proved that her babies had different fathers. Looks like this husband wasn’t the type to snoop around in his wife’s e-mail account, otherwise he might have found out that is child was going to have a half-brother or sister, and sooner than he thought.
Sadly, or who knows, maybe thankfully, the mother of the twins has divorced her husband. Silver lining? She is now living with the other twin’s father. I’d say that’s a made for TV movie or a Tyra Banks show episode at the very least.
