Hermaphrodite Impregnates Self, Gives Birth to Hermaphrodite Twins

MANILA | Jose Maria Garcia, a 19-year old born with both ovaries and testicles and who has both male and female sex organs has given birth this morning at the Amisola Maternity Hospital, reports the Manila Times. 

Both babies were also born hermaphrodites, displaying physical characteristics and genitals of both genders, a “miraculous event” according to Dr. Xi Huan Chow, Medical director at Amisola Maternity Hospital.

“We are privileged to experience such an unusual birth,” he told reporters, visibly happy with the turn of events.

“Hundreds of people have come to witness these miracles of nature. Both babies are extremely healthy and vibrant with life,” he explained with enthusiasm.


The two hermaphrodite twins were named Hermes and Aphrodite, both parents of the god Hermaphroditus in Greek mythology

An unexpected birth

Jose Maria Garcia, the mother and father of the two children, admits the birth was not expected at all.

“I have never had any sexual experience with someone outside of myself. I was unaware that I could impregnate myself, but I would never go back even with what I know now. These children are beautiful and I am happy to share my life with them,” he told reporters.

An extremely rare chromosomal disorder

Most experts believe such an occurrence is impossible outside of the animal kingdom, although many cases of human self-fertilization have been reported in medical literature, explains leading researcher Dr. Akira Hashimoto of the University of Tokyo.

In asexual reproduction, an organism can reproduce without the involvement of another organism. Asexual reproduction is not limited to single-celled organisms. For example, a great number of snails and slugs are hermaphrodites. Hermaphroditism is also found in some fish species and to a lesser degree in other vertebrates,” he acknowledges. “The evolution of sexual reproduction is still a major puzzle for biologists,” he admits.

The first account of self-fertilization in history is ascribed to Juanita Franciscella, a Spanish street artist also known as the “bearded woman of Castilla”, who in 1483 is said to have given birth to a child of her own conception. The birth was judged heretical by the Spanish Inquisition and she was burned with her child at the stake.

  1. Congratulations Jose on two beautiful and healthy babies!

  2. These questions are logical: would this be considered incest, perhaps Eve did not have a child by Adam that would have constituted incest. Able, Cain, then a few of her offspring were created to produce females for the boys without genetic mutation or corruption. As the needs relinquished, the God slowed or stopped the need. Meaning we have a preservation tool God gave to his Children?
    Just a thought!

  3. Wow I guess the best of both worlds and u were born that way Alright Christians what can u say now

  4. At least no custody fight or divorce…

  5. I overstand what happened with the asexual birth it only comformation what my dad taught me that we as women procreated without men way before Adam and eve was born

    • When you possess both sexes you’re considered hermaphrodite. Not woman

    • Love to meet up with a human with both assets and qualities. There should be a society where gifted humans can meet and express themselves to the non gifted humans. If anyone knows I would appreciate and be interest thank you jarnal
