Married Couple Told They Are Biological Twins While Visiting A Clinic(Photo)

A married couple who found it hard to conceive were

revealed to be biological

twins after a routine DNA test at a fertility clinic raised

suspicion.



The man and woman, who cannot be named for confidentiality reasons,
were hoping to try IVF but the lab assistant noticed an abnormal
similarity between their DNA profiles.



A doctor at the clinic in Jackson, Mississippi - who

also cannot be named -revealed the astonishing

events to the local newspaper and explained how the situation had come about.



"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," he
told the

Mississippi Herald.



His first reaction was that

they might be first cousins -

until he noted there were far

too many similarities in their

DNA results. After realising the man and woman both had the same
birthday in 1984, the doctor decided they must be biological twins but
didn't know if they were already aware of this or totally oblivious.
When the couple next came

for an appointment at the

clinic, the doctor says he tried to approach the subject

gently.



He asked them if they knew they were twins and says they "burst out
laughing". "The husband said that a lot

of people remarked on the

fact they shared the same

birthdays and looked similar

to each other, but he said it

was just a funny coincidence and that the couple were

definitely not related," he

said.



The doctor says he continued

to insist that the pair were

twins and had DNA evidence

to back it up, after which the

wife "pleaded" with him to

admit he was joking. "I wish that I was, but they had to know the
truth," he told the Mississippi Herald. After talking it through with

the man and woman, who

were trying to process the

news, the doctor was able to

establish how this had all

happened. The couple had met during

college and instantly hit it off, partly down to having such a similar
background - the fact they were both adopted after

their parents had died.
