My female betta made a nest and laid eggs, is that even possible?

So heres the scoop, the girlfriend and I bought 2 betas. A dude, and a chickity to make babies. We have them in separate tanks yet they are right next to each other so they can see each other.

Well the dude was making a bubble nest, and I went to bed last night.

Woke up this morning, his nest shrunk a little but she had a nest of her own with eggs in it!

How is that even possible?

Is she one smart fish?

Some females will blow bubblenests and put their own eggs in it. The eggs won't hatch, of course, because they haven't been fertilized.
