A woman had never dreamed of having a second baby, but fate made her a superfetation gift. She got one in 600 million chance of giving birth to unique twins, who were born on the same day, but conceived 9 days apart.
Jordan Parks, 27, from Doncaster struggled to conceive her first baby. The woman had already been treated for infertility caused by polycystic ovary syndrome by the age of 24. Due to the doctors' efforts, she managed to get pregnant and give birth to her first baby Freddie. After the birth of the long-awaited child, the Englishwoman was sure that she would never become a mother again.
After three years, the woman got ill with what she thought was a vomiting bug. soon afterwards she recalled that the last time she had felt like that was during her pregnancy.
"I never expected to be pregnant, but I bought a test to double-check and it came back positive," Jordan said.
It was time to make an appointment with a doctor. Jordan went to the ultrasound with her boyfriend Jason and their firstborn, Freddie. Jordan's men were holding her hands, anxiously awaiting what the doctor would tell them. The doctor showed them an ultrasound scan, from which two pairs of eyes were looking at the parents-to-be.
"I was absolutely gobsmacked. After being told I was infertile, I could not believe my body had done this. It was a miracle," Jordan added.
Those weren't all the surprises for parents. It turned out that the twins weren't really twins, because they were conceived nine days apart.
This was the result of a rare medical phenomenon known as superfetation. Only ten such cases have been officially registered in the world. Superfetation, or the fertilization of two or more eggs, can be caused by the treatment for infertility, which is exactly what Jordan underwent in the past.

Finally, the happy mom gave birth to two healthy babies: a girl Audrey and a boy Arthur. They are not considered "traditional" twins because they come from two different eggs fertilized at completely different times.
Audrey and Arthur, who resemble each other like two peas in a pod, are unlikely to care about being born from two separate pregnancies.
