Hi and Welcome!

No, that isn't normal. It's called fasciation, which isn't well understood. One hypothesis is that it can occur when the bulb is about to divide, but produces one wider stem inside of two separate ones.

Usually the plant returns to normal next year. Some cultivars are more prone to it than others.

Here's an example of one. Came up as two stems this year.
