Is it possible for twins to have different fathers?

In brief: Possible, not likely

It is conceivable that a woman with multiple sexual partners could get pregnant with dichorionic (non-identical) twins from different fathers.
This is very rare, but possible and has been described.

The issue sometimes comes up some when fraternal twins have a different overall "look".People don't understand that they can be as different as siblings born years.
