  • actually I don't know how true that is actually. Cause my dh's dad's side twins run on his side and not his moms side. For instants his dad brother is a twin, his dads mom is a twins and he has twin cousins as well. DH's mom doesn't have twins on her side and she had twins. My dh is a twin

  • I'm actually a twin and so it my bf. Twins is gentic but you get half your dna from mom and dad so both can be a factor. You probably shouldn't exclude anyone.

  • I'm a twin and both my mothers side and fathers side had twins.. I think that the fathers dna can also make the egg split.. But fraternal twins just come from the moms part
