Pregnancy is one of the most important times in the life of both men and women. We are preparing to welcome a new life into the world and this will change the family's life forever. But sometimes, doubts about infidelity can mar the happiness of a pregnancy. These doubts can even cause the parties involved to request a DNA test to alay these suspicions.
This is exactly what happened in Colombia, where a man asked his partner to get her twins DNA tested. And, in fact, the tests proved that the twins had been fathered by two different men. This rare event is called superfetation, but let's see what this means exactly.
Superfecundation occurs when, during the same cycle, two eggs are fertilized. Usually, only one egg is fertilized. But in this incredible case from Bogota, two different men were involved in the fertilization - clearly proving the mother had relations with her partner and her lover in quick succession.
Although already pregnant, this cheating woman got pregnant again.
This event took place in 2018 and was studied by the National University of Bogota. It is believed that cases of superfecundation are more common than believed, but are under-reported.
In this case, however, something didn't seem right to the woman's partner and the DNA tests revealed the shocking truth.
