According to information obtained by Today and reported in the media, 34-year-old Abby Hensel quietly tied the knot in 2021 with Josh Bowling, a veteran of the U.S. Army.

Sources shared that the couple's Facebook profile picture features a wedding photo where the conjoined twins are seen hand in hand with a man in a gray suit, both dressed in a white wedding gown.

It is recorded that the conjoined twins are currently working as teachers and residing in Minnesota.


Abby and Brittany are dicephalic conjoined twins, a rare phenomenon where twins share one body side by side but have two heads. They have separate hearts and stomachs, a pair of arms, and a pair of legs. Their spines merge at the pelvis, they share a circulatory system, and their organs below the waist are shared.

While Abby controls the right arm and leg, Brittany manages the left arm and leg.

The conjoined twins first gained fame when they appeared on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" in 1996. Their lives were later documented on TLC.

According to an interview with the family by Time in 2001, the idea of separating the twins was immediately dismissed by both parents, with doctors indicating that the chances of both surviving the procedure were slim.
