20 Interesting Things About Famous Conjoined Twins Abby And Brittany Hensel
I love a lot of things in life. But nothing quite as much as sitting down on the couch and watching TLC reality TV shows. I’ve seen them all! My Strange Addiction, Little People Big World, Say Yes to the Dress and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. But I was absolutely obsessed with Abby & Brittany, the conjoined twins. They have such different personalities and they remind me of me and my sister when we’re fighting over something really ridiculous. The show goes into depth about how they live their lives as conjoined twins but it doesn’t show everything! Here’s everything you need to know about Abby and Brittany Hensel!
1. As conjoined twins, they share a body but they have separate vital organs. Each twin has a separate heart, stomach, spine, lungs and spinal cord.
2. Each twin controls her half of their body, operating one of the arms and one of the legs.
3. Growing up, learning how to crawl, clap or walk was difficult because they had to coordinate with the other.
