A couple years ago a woman in Colorado gave birth to faternal twins of which
each had a different father.  The story was that this woman was in the process
of a divorce and somehow  (to make the story short) ending up having sex with
her soon to be ex-husband and then later returned home and had sex with her
boyfriend (soon to be husband) within approx. a few hours.  No one suspected
anything till after one of the babies were born looked like her exhusband -
paternity tests were done and did prove that the exhusband did father one of
the children and the other child was from the other man.

Something to think about.
