Mr Vasconcelos added that at no point did the mother, who has three other children, appear distraught that her son has two heads.
He said: ‘On the contrary, the baby was received with much happiness by the family.
‘The mother fed both mouths and the baby stayed with her in her room the whole time. Her desire was to take her baby straight home.’
