The women was impregnated by two different men. Thus the babies have different DNA and are not scientifically speaking twins. For those who may doubt this is possible look up the term superfecundation.

I was just thinking about what someone said about that twins cannot be born at the same time.

I'm not sure about this, but what if they were conjoined?

Two were conjoined, and the third was born regularly, making two born at the same time.

I don't know much about conjoined birth, so I could be wrong.

Most of these answers are implausible and unlikely. Asuming that the woman and her children are HUMAN (This is most likely because most riddles are not about animals), that she was not impregnanted by two men (And even then they would still be considered twins, as they were born at the same time, by the same person, regardless of the father), that this is in normal circumstances, no different dimensions or otherwise, that the answer that rookie1ja is correct, and as he has said the answer, that IS the answer (although, yes, there may be others), that the two children are two children of a set of triplets.

(Although another very minor mistake, is that you forgot to put the week. If you did not intend to put week, than that could be another answer indeed. They could both be born on Monday, in June, in 2007, by the same woman. But there are more Mondays in June than just one, correct?)

I agree that 2 girls that are out of a set of triplets could be considered twins. One set of triplets makes 3 sets of twins.

This riddle suffers from two semantic problems. Fifty years ago, when such variables as cloned life and sex changes did not exist, the riddle would be straight forward and have only one probable solution - that the children were born of a set that is more than two.

The first of the problems is that the children were born "to" the mother. This only implies that the mother 'received' the children or has some ownership over them. Not necessarily that she birthed them.

The second problem stems from the first, since a child can be born to a family, this means that the 'mother' does not necessarily have to be the one birthing the child

Though the two possibilities below are unlikely, they are still very POSSIBLE. Thus ruining this riddle.

1) The technology exists to have multiple eggs of the same mother fertilized in vetro at the same time. The woman does not have to actually birth the children....if she has ownership, they are still born TO her

2) More unlikely but still possible, a lesbian couple gives birth to their babies both at the same time. One mother has two children born TO her. They are not twins in any sense of the word.

This makes sense for me...

The chicken gave birth to two chicks.

The hen is the mother. The two chicks hatch simultaniously from two seperate eggs. They are not actually born until the eggs hatch and in theory they could hatch at the same time, even if they were laid minutes or even hours apart.

Am I correct? I submit that I am!

if the children developed from two eggs (i.e. faternal twins) and if these eggs had been fertilized by two different men, they would technically only be half-twins. However, I think such a thing is unlikely to occur.

The girls are 2/3 of a set of triplets and it's daylight savings. Fallback one hour, so the girls are born an hour apart.

my first thought - they are seahorses (in which the male gives birth) - if the female impregnated more than one seahorse adn they gave birth the same time...

The mother could give birth to one baby in New Zealand, then would have 23 hours because of the time zone changes to fly to Hawaii to have the other baby at the exact same time on the same day in the same month in the same year.

its obvious they are triplets. one question, if there are two girls who are sisters and i dentical but one was born one minute before midnight and the other after, would they still be twins but with different birthdays?

may be the mother was travelling on a plane between two different timezones.theoretically, the babies can born at the same time but still can't be twins

Can't we say that that the two babies were born in different months of the same year (like one born in Jan, the other in Dec) as the question doesn't specify anything about the months.

Whaddya know, I was gonna say the same thing.

The newborns could in fact have different fathers. If this is true, then this is a case of a phenomenon known as heteropaternal superfecundation.

If They are siamese twins they are not nessisarily twins because they share some organ or some part of the body.

Easy! The woman was impregnated by two different men.

As odd as this may seem, yes, it is possible. There are women who will ovulate from both ovaries at the same time, so it is possible for her to be impregnated by 2 different me. Or even if it was the same man, they still would not be twins.

On the other hand, I must agree with whoever said that unless you have a c-section 2 people cannot be born at the exact same time. But I do think we understand the point about being born at the same time, probably should have been worded differently. But of course, triplets work as well
