When they were asked by the doctor if they were twins, they laughed and thought he was joking. As they had no idea, you can forgive them for thinking it was a wind up.
The husband shrugged it off.
“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,” The doctor said.
Further DNA evidence proved that they were related. The wife “pleaded” with the doctor to admit he was joking, according to the Mirror.
“I wish that I was, but they had to know the truth,” he said.
Upon further exploration, it was found that the couple had fallen in love back in college and at that point they had discovered they were both from similar backgrounds.
Both of them had lost their parents when they were young and both had been put up for adoption. They were adopted by separate families. They weren’t told they had a twin.
The couple are apparently considering their future together after hearing this shocking news and it being confirmed to be true.
The doctor has said that he’s reluctantly glad that he was unable to help the husband and wife conceive a baby, given the circumstances.
