Question Unexpected 2nd Birth

Hi...One of my breeder females gave birth to her first litter of two on Oct 24, 2014. Unfortunately, neither baby made it. I noticed last night(12-7),she was taking bedding under her hut. This morning (12-8), My husband and I heard the tell-tale sound of babies! We looked in with a flashlight and she has three babies. She HAS NOT been bred since the first and only pairing. This was totally unexpected! Has anyone had this happen before? I didn't think hedgehogs could hold sperm and I've tried to find info on this throughout Google, with no luck. Any insight would be appreciated!
