What happens when two twins have a baby?

The answer is quite simple. [Two sets of] identical twins will not have identical offspring, says Professor Rodney Scott, head of medical genetics at the University of Newcastle. The only way we get identical offspring is when a fertilised egg splits into two cells.

Do identical twins have the same blood type?
