You man enough to give birth to your twin – Alien style?

In something straight out of a horror sci-fi flick Gavin Hyatt gave birth to his twin brother through his belly button this past month. Granted it was only the 4cm fetus that Gavin had absorb while in his mother's womb after his twin had died. Once there it remained inert until a recent change in Gavin's weight which doctors say may have started the process.

There are just a handful of cases worldwide — with the majority reported in Asia.

twinFormer firefighter Gavin, of Witney, Oxfordshire, said: "Four hospital doctors had previously examined me and were all puzzled by the lump.

"Some thought it was a cyst, others an in-grown hair.

"Then one said it could be my undeveloped identical twin that I absorbed at a very early stage. I feel absolutely fine now but it has not sunk in yet that I could have had a twin brother. I have him in a jar at home and I call him little Gav. I haven't told many people. I feel like a bit of a freak."

Freak or not this is kind of cool but I will admit that keeping the Alien wannabe in a jar by the bed might be carrying things a little too far.
