Twins with Two Dads: the Phenomenon of Heteropaternal Superfecundation

Twins are often categorised as either identical or fraternal, based on their genetic makeup. However, there's a rare phenomenon known as heteropaternal superfecundation that adds an unexpected twist to the concept of fraternal twin - they can actually have different fathers.
