A curious surprise in Mineiros, Brazil: According to a media report, a woman gave birth to twins there last year – and the children come from two different fathers, as it later turned out.
According to TV broadcaster Globo, the 19-year-old mother had her two girls tested for paternity eight months after giving birth - and the test matched one man each! According to the information, the young woman had sex with the two men on the same day.
In 2015, the media reported that a maintenance dispute in the USA also revealed that a woman had twins from two different men, and a year later such a case occurred in Vietnam. There it was initially wrongly assumed that one of the children could have been transposed in the hospital.
"I was surprised by the results. I didn't know that something like this could happen. They are very similar," commented the young woman from Brazil on the surprising result of the paternity tests. According to Globo, one of the men is now taking care of both boys.
