Dear Cupid,

Is it possible for a chlid to have more than one biological father?

I was not even two months pregnant when me and my husband broke up, and I started dating/sleeping with someone else. I slept with this guy for 4 months straight almost everyday, sometimes 5 times a day. Now that I have my child, I cant tell who she favors more because she looks exactly like i did when I was born, so she doesnt really favor either or as of now. I really want for the other guy to be her father however, since my husband was a jerk. But me and this other guy have been having dreams and feelings, and even went to a ouji board for advice, and in turn it says that we need a DNA test. Please Reply ASAP! I really need ur help and cant find anything with this subject on the net

Thank you *thuggy*

Please read about Chimera and yes, it is possible to have two biological fathers. It happens more than you would think. Do a search on Chimera in humans. There was recently a documentary on tv about this subject it was called "I Am My Own Twin".

It is impossible for a child to have two biological fathers. However, there have been rare cases where people were pregnant with twins (that were not identical) and each baby had a different father. If it is just one baby, it is definitely impossible.

xxxsoulsistaxxx agony auntOnly one sperm gets into and fertilises the egg. So, officially, the man who owns this sperm is the baby's 'father'. However, just because his sperm made the baby doesn't mean he's worthy of being a father. Any man can provide a sperm, it takes someone special to be a dad.

If you and this guy want to give this little child a good life, you can do it. Does it really matter who provided the sperm to make her? She's yours and that's all that matters. You should choose whoever you think will make the best dad and who you both can have a happy life with.

As for finding out who the biological father is, I think it is a good idea to get a dna test. After all, one day, she will want to know the truth and you should never lie to her. Even if it is your husband who is the father, please don't go back to him if he's not the man for you. Many children are brough up by people who aren't biologically attached to them: as I say, it depends on who will be the best father to the child.

Good luck and find out the truth, whatever you decide, even if it's just for your piece of mind.
