For the first time a gay couple had a triplet with the DNA of both fathers

Theo and Cristo Menelau are a gay couple from South Africa who, for the first time, both became the biological fathers of triplets bred as a surrogate mother. They had twin girls and a boy.
This is a unique achievement in terms of science. How did all this happen:

The sperm of each of the fathers was used to fertilize two eggs of the same woman. One egg was divided, and it turned out that one man became the father of the twins, and the second - the father of the boy-brother of girls. That is, children have one mom, but different dads, who will eventually bring them up.

For these same-sex couples, this is good news, because today, even without that, many people have children with IVF and through surrogate motherhood.

However, when one egg cell split, the doctors got worried and even advised parents to leave only one of the twins, otherwise it would be difficult for them to survive together. But Menelau ignored this advice, and in July, the surrogate mother gave birth prematurely: each baby weighed about a kilogram.One of them still has heart surgery, but everyone has already been discharged home.
