Minnesota's conjoined twins, Abby and Brittany Hensel, make The Sun
More from The Sun:
The 18-year-old dicephalus twins have two spines, which join at the pelvis, two hearts and stomachs, three kidneys, two gall bladders and four lungs.
But they share one liver and ribcage and a nervous system.
Below the waist all organs including intestines, bladder and reproductive organs are shared.
Each twin controls one side of the body and they can play the piano, swim, ride a bike and take part in sports.
A TLC documentary, replayed countless times during off hours, brought the ladies some new fame as the piece follows them on their 16th birthday passing the test for their driver's license. They had to take it twice.
