Having Twins With Twice the Fun
Dallas, TX (almost anytime)
Twins, Different Fathers? A Texas mother of twins received the shock (you've got to be kidding) of a lifetime when doctors revealed that her 11-month-old boys do not have the same father.
Justin and Jordan Washington were born to mother Mia in Dallas, Texas seven minutes apart 11 months ago.
Mia, who cheated on her partner at the time she conceived, said that she had her twins' DNA tested after noticing how different they looked from each other. Jordan looked like her partner, James, and Justin looked like....hmmmmm, let me think here.
Paternity tests then revealed what had happened -- two eggs had been fertilized by two different sperm and there was a 99.99% chance the twins had different dads.
Doctors at the DNA lab in Dallas, Texas had never seen such a result.
Mia says that her partner James Harrison will raise both twins as his own and that Justin can meet his biological father when he has grown if he wishes.
The question is, who will Justin know to look for?
