NewsFeed loves any story that appropriately includes the phrase “sister from another mister.”

Though it’s rare, having twins from two different fathers is possible if a woman ovulates two eggs and sleeps with two different men. ¬†According to reports, this case is only the seventh instance of twins from different fathers. (via MSNBC)
