Happens On The Soaps .......

Watching the snow melt as I drink my coffee and listen to the morning news, I hear that twins have been born. Okay. What makes this set of babies remarkable is the fact that they share only their mother. Two fathers. The ex-husband and the boyfriend. Only seven reported cases.


Okay, first of all this happens a lot on TV. It is a great plot twister. And so much more believable than coming back from dying. That also happens a lot. Some characters are known for returning to life over and over again, as if they are like a cat with nine lives. They die as often as they marry every man in a family.


But, really, why would you want to be known for birthing babies fathered by two men? Do they ask you if you would mind telling the world about your special talent? What will the children be told as they grow up calling different men Daddy. Did the daddies know they were participating in this special event? I would not want to be this mom when puberty visits this set of twins. Do you suppose that is why this event goes unreported?

I have heard of that happening, but am very grateful it is not myself nor anyone I know...I would love to be there when she has to explain this one to the kids. LOL

It is sick why anyone would put themselves out there for 15 minutes of fame based on [basically] being a whore. Sorry - if you cheat on your marriage and end up with two children by two different men does not make you special. It makes you a slut.

Why do they do it - they are only screwing up thier kids for their small sliver of the pie of fame.

Why people do things at the expense of others, especially innocent children, confounds me.

What I'm wondering is... were the three of them together when this happened or did she have sex twice on the same day with different men? Just curious.

I heard that story on the news this morning, thankfully with no names mentioned. I am guessing the paternity was tested to figure out who was supporting the children. I just have to shake my head.

I've heard of dogs having a litter of puppies from up to as many 3 different fathers, but humans? Huh. Who knew?

I certainly wouldn't want to publicize this! Would I be proud that I slept with two different men in a matter of hours/days?

It's sad that this woman decided to go public with this information.

But it's even sadder that this is considered "news" these days. Aren't there more important things going on in the world? You know, things that the general public should be educated about. :o(

i am in agreement with everyone else. not newsworthy. should be kept private in the family. wonder if someone in the hospital "leaked" the news and then the mother had to come forward?

i've heard of this happening before, but with artificial insemination and the mother ended up with sperm from someone other than her husband AND her husband.

Quite sad on so many levels if you think about it.
