Remember The Woman With Four Legs And Two Private Parts Who Later Had 5 Kids? Here's How It Happened

Today we'll be discussing about a woman who surprised the world many years ago, many people still find her life story hard to believe, but it's entirely true.

Josephine myrtle Corbin was born in the year 1868, at a place known as Tennessee which is in London county, she was born with four legs and two private parts.

From documented reports, Myrtle’s extra legs were supposed to belong to her separate twin, but she had an even rarer form of conjoined twinning known as 'dipygus', and this made her have everything in double from the waist downward, but her upper body remained the same as a normal person.

It was difficult for her to move around because her inner pair of legs were smaller than the outer one but they were glued together, so she could only move the smaller legs but was unable to use them for walking because they couldn't carry the weight of her body.

When she reached 19 years, she was given out in marriage to Clinton Bicknell who was a doctor at that time and they both had a son and four daughters.

It was documented that three of her children were born from one set of organs, while two came from the other.

This mysterious woman died on May 6, 1928.

It was documented that her smaller boby was not fully formed, so her inner pair of legs had only three toes on each foot, so logically she had only one fully functional pair of legs.

Her twin's sex organs was also fully formed, that was why she was able to deliver with it.

This happened many years ago where technology was less advanced, if it were to be now, she would have lived a more comfortable life.
