Not all people are born the same way—some people are born with more than the typical number of body parts. Having an extra body part, known as a supernumerary body part, happens more often than most people imagine. Doctors claim that this abnormality exists and can be found in a number of people, including some celebrities. Here is a list of nine people who have enjoyed their life despite having an extra body part.
The Man Born With Two Penises
There are many odd questions on Reddit’s Ask Me Anything, but people rarely see one about having two penises. For most people, it is unlike any other question and answer they have ever encountered. A man known as ‘DDD’ or ‘DoubleDickDude’ suffers from a rare congenital condition known as diphallia. This means he has two functioning sex organs. His post on Reddit has gained widespread attention from curious women and men who have posted over 15,000 comments to ask about his sexuality. DDD has explained that he is bisexual and in a happy relationship with a woman and man. Statistics reveal that there are approximately one hundred reported cases of diphallia in the world.
The Baby With A Second Face
Stories of kids born with facial deformities are always heartbreaking. For this reason, when it was discovered that a baby in China had two faces, many people were sad and affected by his condition. Kangkang is a fourteen-month-old boy who was born with a second face or a deformity known as a transverse facial cleft. The baby looks like he is wearing a mask because of the large cleft. His mother, Yi Xilian, thought all was well with her baby during pregnancy. Upon birth, however, her husband did not let her see their son immediately. Eventually, she got a hold of him and broke down in tears upon seeing his condition. Nobody knows the cause of the baby’s cleft.
