Amazingly candid videos about the lives of conjoined twins Abigail and Brittany Hensel

Watch well, because this is one of the rare media appearances Abigail and Brittany Hensel were willing to make, back in 2006.

This is a pretty rare media appearance for them; they actually hate being famous and get tired of being stared at (one could hardly blame them). They are also a very rare case for being such a surgically inseparable set of conjoined twins and yet surviving into adulthood - complications often happen with cases like theirs due to shared organs.

To watch how they interact with both each other and the rest of the world, is to be amazed at just how relatively well-adjusted they are.

Here they are again at age 19 in 2010:

There's quite a bit more around the web about them.

Since the documentaries you see here, they have moved on to graduate high school and attend college in Minnesota. They have plans for the future, including marriage(s) and motherhood(s).
