A woman lives with identical twin guys, Lin Weihao and Lin Weizhuang, one of whom is her boyfriend. In March 2010, after heavy drinking by everyone, she walks into the wrong man’s bedroom, i.e. not her boyfriend’s. She has sex with him, gets pregnant. The brothers have a falling out — for obvious reasons — and a break-up with the girl ensues. She gives birth. One year later, she dies of cancer, and entrusts the baby to the brothers.
But who is the father? A paternity test reveals nothing, since they are identical twins.
Two years passed. In May of 2012, Luo Suhong passed away from terminal lung cancer. According to her last wishes, she entrusted the care of her one year-old child to the Lin brothers. However, the two brothers would each not personally admit to being the father of the child.
Recently, the mother of the two Lin brothers discovered the Furong Judicial [Paternity] Appraisal Center at the No. 2 People’s Hospital in Hunan province; she wanted to have the two brothers take a paternity test to confirm whom is the biological father. A worker for the [Paternity] Appraisal Center took a hair sample from both Weihao and Weizhuang to test for a biological match with the child. The result shocked everybody: both brothers served as a biological match as the child’s father. The twins are identical and conceived from the same egg; as they have the same genes, a paternity test is incapable of determining which of the brothers is the actual biological father of the child.
It’d be funny if it weren’t so tragic for all parties involved.
