Abigail and Brittany Hensel were born on March 7, 1990 and are conjoined (Siamese) twins. This type of conjoined twin share what appears to be one body but with two heads. Their external body is conjoined all the way up to the neck with just two arms and legs. Internal they have separate hearts, spinal columns and separate stomachs. Less than 25 percent of all conjoined twins survive past two years and the mortality rate for twins with Dicephalic Parapagus, such as in Brittany and Abby case is even lower.

Although they try to live their life as privately as possible; Abby and Brittany first appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show in 1996. The same year they appeared on the cover of Life magazine. Life magazine continued to follow up with them until 2003 and in 2006; they appeared in a follow-up documentary on TLC. As they graduated from college with separate Bachelors of Art degrees this year, they decided to welcome the curious public into their everyday life with their new show Abby and Brittany.

On the show it is evident that most of their daily activities require a joint effort because Abby controls the right side of the body and Brittany controls the left side. The girls do not let that stand in their way as you watch them drive a car, get ready for job interviews and travel abroad for vacation. Besides their extreme physical coordination, their distinct personalities are highly visible. According to their good friends that often make cameo appearances on the show, it is very easy to tell the differences between Abby and Brittany.

For an example, Abby excels in mathematics while Brittany is better in English and quite often they will even eat separate meals because the food preferences are so varied. Occasionally they even bicker on what clothes they will wear that day. In between all of their differences, the twins still show how close to each other they really are. Throughout the show the girls tend to even finish each other's sentences and can even write an e-mail together with limited verbal communication.
