Mia Washington: My twins have different dads
Posted by Sherwin
Justin and Jordan Washington are not your average twin brothers. They may have arrived in the world just seven minutes apart but they don’t look much alike. You might say, “Oh well… that happens.” But it’s definitely not what you think it is.
These boys have different dads!
According to experts, there is only a one-in-a-million chance of twins having different biological fathers.
Mia Washington of Dallas, Texas admitted she was having an affair when she conceived. Her husband James and her lover managed to fertilize two different eggs, which made the twins, in reality, half-brothers.
“Out of all people in America and of all people in the world, it had to happen to me. I’m very shocked,” Fox News quoted Mia as saying.
So she had the babies, now 11 months old, DNA tested and discovered Jordan was James’s son while Justin was fathered by her lover.
When twins have two fathers, doctors call it heteropaternal superfecundation. It’s so rare; there are only a handful of documented cases in the world.
Mia said she plans to tell the boys about their DNA differences when they’re old enough to understand. As for the other father, she has no plans to tell him.
