Who Are Brittany & Abby Hensel?

Abby and Brittany are dicephalus-conjoined twins. Abby Hensel controls their right arm and leg, while her sister Brittany controls the left side. The sisters also share a bloodstream as well as all of the organs below their waist.

When the conjoined twins were born, their parents were asked to decide whether or not they would like to separate the girls. They ultimately decided that the procedure was too risky.

“How could you pick between the two?” their father, Mike Hensel said. The sisters were determined to lead a normal life. In fact, their mother Patty Hensel revealed that they planned to have children one day.

Brittany and Abby Hensel first gained national attention after they appeared as guests on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 1996. They were just six years old at the time.

Later on, they became known for their TLC series Abby & Brittany, which documented the sisters’ everyday life.

Despite the fact that they’ve been married since 2021, people were shocked to hear the news when it broke on Wednesday. Since then, the twins have posted a series of TikTok videos that seem to fire back at critics.

One of the videos shows the three of them together and is captioned, “This Is a Message To All the Haters Out There. If You Don’t Like What I Do But You Watch Everything I’m Doing You’re Still a Fan.”

Another caption read, “The internet is LOUD today. We have always been around.” Their reaction to the news going viral is understandable, especially since they haven’t done anything to hide their marriage. In fact, they have posted about Josh frequently over the last few years.

One fan commented on their video, “I was so confused by all of reports of your wedding – I’ve been following for a while and was sure you were married already.”

“Pay no attention!! Live your very best lives,” another wrote. It’s clear Brittany and Abby Hensel plan to do just that.
