Last year, Texas woman, Mia Washington didnâ€™t plan on giving birth to twins but when she did she ended up getting even more than she bargained for â€” her fraternal sons have two different fathers. You are probably wondering, how did this happen so allow us to explain.
As you know, every month a woman releases one egg from her ovaries that can be fertilized by sp*rm. As for Washington, she released a pair of eggs. According to Dr. Hilda Hutcherson of Columbia University who reported toÂ TODAY News:
â€œsp*rm can remain alive and well and viable for up to five days in the reproductive tract. Thus, a woman can have sex with different men within those five days and the sp*rm just kind of hang out there waiting for the egg to be released.â€
