Twins with different fathers were once thought to be very rare. However, one recent study estimates that, worldwide, one in 12 fraternal twin sets are bi-paternal. (They even have a special name for it: Heteropaternal Superfecundation.) The study suggests cultural standards, surrogacy pregnancy and fertility procedures, Mom's sexual activity, and perhaps even prostitution accounts for this frequency... The study also suggests that among married white women in the U.S., one pair of fraternal twin sets in 400 is bi-paternal. Documented cases of twins with two different fathers go back as far as 1810 in the United States.

Sowing to the flesh, minding the things of the flesh, means gratification of the desires of the flesh, minding the things that are craved by our fallen nature... If yielded to, these cravings will grow stronger and stronger... It is a mistake to suppose, as some do, that a reasonable gratification of the flesh is proper.... Every gratification of the fallen flesh satisfies only the animal propensities...And those who continue to yield to these propensities will ultimately reach corruption, death--the Second Death...Now with that said ...A Texas mother of twins found out her 11-month-old boys do not have the same father.... How could this happen she ask ? My guess by sowing to the flesh... . Ms. Washington noticed that her twins Justin and Jordan had different facial features, so she decided to get it checked out...A paternity test revealed that two eggs had been fertilized by two different sperm and there was a 99.99% chance the twins had different daddy's...It turns out Washington had an affair, and got pregnant by two different men at the same time. "Out of all people in America and of all people in the world, it had to happen to me," she told myfoxdfw.com. "I'm very shocked."
