Can TLC conjoined stars Abby and Brittany Hensel have kids?



TLC stars Abby and Brittany Hensel have always said they wanted to be mothers, but since conjoined twins share reproductive organs, a new report has questioned whether it is possible and which of the women would be legally considered a mother if they became pregnant. .

The 34-year-old twins said in a documentary made when they were teenagers that they planned to become mothers later in life. according to the telegraph.

“Yes, one day we will be mothers, but we still don’t want to talk about how it’s going to work,” the newlywed woman said at the time.

But how that would work has been questioned, since the sister shares reproductive organs, the outlet said.

Earlier this week, the Hensel twins came for the haters and posted a video with clips of Abby marrying Josh Bowling, 33, in 2021. Heidi bowling/ Facebook

The twins were back in the spotlight this week after posting a video featuring clips from Abby’s 2021 wedding to Josh Bowling, 33.

If Abby or Brittany have biological children, they would be the first dicephalic (or fused side by side) twins to do so.

Each of the women has a heart and lungs, but all other organs, including the reproductive system, are shared, the Telegraph reported.

If Abby or Brittany have biological children, they would be the first dicephalous twins to do so. The twins share reproductive organs, which raises questions about who the legal mother would be and whether complications would be guaranteed. dear

Conjoined twins Chang and Eng Bunker, who were born in 1811 in what is now Thailand, had 21 children between them (10 for Chang and 11 for Eng), breaking the record for most children born to unseparated twins. according to Guinness world records.

The twins made a small fortune parading across the United States, before settling in North Carolina after gaining citizenship. They married sisters Adelaide and Sarah Yates, and lived in separate homes, spending three days at a time in each home.

However, even if the Hensel twins were to become pregnant, the world would most likely not know, as the twins have previously expressed that they want to keep their lives private. Heidi bowling/ Facebook

They would die in 1874, within hours of each other, and were the oldest conjoined twins of all time, according to Guinness.

Half of the conjoined twins Rosa and Josepha Blažek, originally from what is now the Czech Republic, had a son.

Rosa had a son in 1910, according to a study. The twins were later separated.

Unlike the Bunker brothers, who shared a liver, the Hensels share vital organs, meaning it is unclear whether a pregnancy is possible or who the legal mother would be, the Telegraph claims.

Each of the twins has their own spine and control separate sides of the body, joining at the pelvis.

It’s unclear if the world will ever find the answers: women have asked for privacy.

“The whole world doesn’t need to know who we’re seeing, what we’re doing and when we’re going to do it,” Brittany said.
