Abby and Brittany Hensel, Minnesota's most famous teenagers, are going international. The conjoined twins, now 18, continue to make news around the world as they are now grown adults attending their first year of college.
Abby and Brittany's story was featured in United Kingdom's The Sun. While the story is basically a recap of much of the information provided in other stories about the twins, their ability to reach international audience with their amazing story is compelling in itself.
If you've been living under a rock, we'll give you a run down of their story.
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.
Here is a YouTube slideshow of sorts that shows the most famous photos of the twins:
