Abby Hensel and Brittany Hensel born March 7, 1990 in Carver County, Minnesota. They are conjoined twins, and just turned 16. See the Abby and Brittany Hensel conjoined twins video after the bump. So interesting!
They are two well-adjusted, vigorous and even athletic people whose complicated but high-functioning anatomy precludes separation. Abby and Brittany have a strong sense of self, with a balanced blend of being individuals, but work together.
Their continued good health is of some concern because only four known sets of conjoined twins who share an undivided torso and two legs have ever survived into adulthood, and most have congenital heart defects or other organ anomalies. None have shown up in the Hensels’ case.
They have so far had no desire to make themselves available for any medical studies. They intend to make a rather limited number of media appearances in the future, primarily just to appease the world’s curiosity and to reduce the number of people who might otherwise be taken aback by their novel body configuration.
They would prefer not to be stared at or photographed by strangers while going about their private lives. They expect to date, get married and have children.
