Woman pregnant with twins with two fathers (what do YOU think she should do?)

Peggi Peggi
So, there is a story of a pregnant woman beginning to brew! She is currently pregnant. She recently found out that she was having twins. She also found out that each of the twins has a different father! She is married to a doctor and from what is known, the second father was one of his employees!

The question on the radio today is exactly what I am going to ask you! What should she do about it? Should she come clean and tell her husband, the children, a larger portion of the media? Should she keep this between she and her husband, or no one at all?

Here is the info on the situation called Two Babies One Uterus

This was on a local radio show (one which I listen to faithfully every single morning!) he writes the above article with a bit of humor, but please don't take offense to anything you may feel is bias, he is just a radio talkshow-dj-all-around -awesome-guy. The piece went along with his morning show today.

This is medically possible, although very rare. Usually, the woman would have to drop two eggs, and somehow the first man's sperm only penetrate ONE of the two eggs, leaving only a small window of room (maybe a few hours to a day or so) for the next man's sperm to penetrate the next egg.

I've heard of it. There was a woman a number of years ago who had an African American lover and a Caucasian lover and she had twins, one from each father. So, it was fairly obvious.

What should this woman do? I don't know. Does her husband know she was sleeping with other men? In most states in the US, the man a woman is married to is legally the child's father, unless other plans are made. In some states, one cannot even claim an other man is the legal father, even with DNA evidence to prove it.

I want to know one thing, though. How did this DJ find out that this woman "may" be carrying two babies from two different men? Is she telling everyone except her husband? It is rare to do DNA for paternity in utero. How does this DJ know the details? I'm a little suspicious. And he claims the woman has to have a bicornate uterus. Highly unlikely (as he says this is only a possibility) women with bicornate uterus have very high miscarriage rates, being able to carry twins to term would be nearly impossible for a woman with this condition.

I think she should own up to her mistakes and accept responsibility and all of the consequences that come from it. I would say that to just about anyone in any situation like this. It's the only way to learn from it and keep a guilty conscience at bay. Of course, that's really easy for me to say. It's not my life. *whistles*

Also, this would be more likely to happen if the sperm entered the uterus from both men within a few minutes of each other. A three-way maybe? Still....


I still want to know how the DJ knows about it and the woman's husband doesn't.

I agree, this would be very hard to test for unless one was of a very different ethnicity than the other! If this is the case, the Husband is going to find out when they're born, anyways, so she should for sure tell him!

That is what I want to know too. How is this public knowledge? I can't imagine the pregnant woman is going around announcing this and just hoping it never gets back to her husband.

It really sounds more like an urban myth than actual fact...but like P'Gell said, the likelihood of it happening is most likely (like what, 0.0005%) to have happened during an unprotected 3-way (or the "other" man was hiding in the closet waiting for the hubby to go get in the shower?).

As for the "public knowledge" part of it...it could be the DJ is the "other man", but I'm going with thew urban myth thing on this one.

What would I do though? Well, my guy knows if I'm going to do "that" with anyone else...so it's a non-issue here.

Exactly! Her husband is some doctor and he doesn't even know? Seems just like something stirred up on the internet.

At this point the husband doesn't know about the other man. The DJ found out because there was a segment yesterday on his show where people could call in to win tickets to a concert and the theme was "workplace gossip and drama" so a woman called in to talk about her coworker who is bragging about this, and trying to make everyone feel sorry for her, when in reality everyone is just mad at her now because they all think her husband is GREAT.

They are theorizing on the bicornate uterus, though, they were trying to figure out how it was possible.

The first one to bring it into conversation was actually a coworker of the pregnant woman, and then the pregnant woman was contacted as well for an entirely different segment which was today (the initial finding out was yesterday).

She should come clean to her husband for sure. And then go from there.

I didn't even think that this could happen. Move over Kate + 8.

I think it's her own business and she should worry about what to do. if she decides to say something, that's fantastic; if not, then oh well. I don't buy it though, that kind of testing is hard to do; probably just something someone made up to win tickets.
