A married couple in the Mississippi, US surprisingly discovered that they were biological twins. This came after a routine DNA test at an IVF clinic as they were struggling to conceive naturally. The couple, who met in college, had attended the clinic in Mississippi in the hope that it would help them to have their own child.
A doctor in Mississippi clinic Reveled that "It's just a routine thing and we wouldn't normally check to see if there was a relationship between the two samples, but in this case the lab assistant involved was shocked by the similarity of each profile".
After talking it throughly with the man and woman, the doctor was able to establish how this had all happened. And they discovered that their biological parents had died in a car accident when they both were infants. With no other family members willing to adopt them, they were put into the care of the state and later adopted into different families of the country, but neither of their new families were ever told that the child had a twin.
The doctor reported to the sources that "My first reaction was that they must have been less- closely related; perhaps they were first cousins, which happens sometimes. However, looking closer at samples, I noticed there were way too many similarities.
The couples have exact same birth dates listed in 1984. "With this in mind, I was convinced that both patients were fraternal twins," the doctor continued.
When the doctor brought up the issue at their next appointment, he said they initially "burst out laughing" in disbelief.
"The wife kept pleading with me to admit I was joking, and I wish that I was, but they had to know the truth," the doctor admitted.
