Twins Have Different Fathers

By    |   Friday, 08 May 2015 04:01 PM

A New Jersey court has ruled that a man believed to have fathered twin girls in Passaic County is actually the biological dad of only one.

The precedent-setting ruling by a Superior Court judge is the first paternity case in the state and only the third nationwide involving two different fathers of twins, NJ.com reports.

Judge Sohail Mohammed ruled that the man — identified only as "A.S." — was not liable for child support payments for both twin girls after DNA testing confirmed he fathered only one of the two.

The mother, identified only as "T.M." delivered the twin girls in January of 2013 and named A.S. as the father of both kids when applying for public assistance.

But after she admitted that she had sex with another, unidentified man within a week of having had sex with A.S., social services ordered a DNA test.

Although it is rare, experts noted it’s possible for a woman two conceive two children — from different fathers — in a single menstrual cycle.
