My twins were conceived 3 weeks apart… they’re among the rarest in the world, I was pregnant when I got pregnant again | The Sun

A MUM has opened up about her "medical phenomenon" twins, admitting they are among the rarest in the world.

Rebecca Roberts shared her story on her YouTube page, as she explained that it was only when she went for her 12-week scan that she found out she was having twins.

At that point, she was told that there was a three-week size discrepancy between the babies.

She went back for another scan a few weeks later, and was told that once again – there was a three-week gap between the babies.

It turns out that Noah and Rosalie are among the world's rarest twins, as they are only the 14th documented case of superfetation twins globally.

"They are the rarest as they have the biggest conception gap between them," Rebecca wrote alongside an Instagram Reel of the twins.
