A Nigerian woman garnered significant online attention by sharing a video featuring her infants, aged 5 months and 2 weeks.
Social media users responded to the video that she posted on her @little.orangeboy TikTok account, which garnered comments.
The mother asked the internet community if there was a name for the type of births she had while positioning her kids on the bed in the video.
Although it is very rare but can be medically called Superfetation. According to report, This is a phenomenon where a second pregnancy occurs alongside an existing one.
Another ovum (egg) is fertilized by sperm and implanted in the womb days or weeks later than the first one.
Babies born from superfetation are mostly called Irish twins, which was originated in the 1800s as a way to mock the Irish catholic immigrant families who did not have access to birth control.
Internet users got amazed as they wondered if the two week baby and five month old son could be from the same woman.
