This is Lydia Fairchild, and she is one of the rare people in the world known as human chimeras. When a fertilized egg meets another fertilized egg in the womb it has 2 choices: develop separately into fraternal twins, or absorb the competition. Chimeras occur when the twin is absorbed but doesn't die, instead continuing to live in your body. Thus one person carries 2 different set of genes, with random organs having your twin's DNA. Anyone could be a chimera without knowing it.

Lydia Fairchild-- is an American woman who exhibits chimerism, with two different sets of DNA present in her body. She was pregnant with her third child when she and the father of her children, Jamie Townsend, separated. When Fairchild applied for child support in 2002, she was requested to provide DNA evidence that Townsend was the father of her children. While the results showed Townsend was certainly the father of the children, the DNA tests indicated that she was not their mother.
