2 minutes, 43 seconds Read

Reality star and conjoined twin Abby Hensel has found love.

Abby and Brittany rose to fame in 1996 when they appeared on an episode of the Oprah Winfrey Show. The twins – who share the same torso and all organs below the waist – then landed their own reality show on TLC and viewers fell in love with the odd-defying duo and their joie de vivre.

Since rising to fame, the now-34-year-olds have faced a barrage of questions about their romantic relationships but seem to been keen to keep that part of their lives relatively private. Speaking in 2012, Brittany – who controls their left arm and leg – said: “The whole world doesn’t need to know who we are seeing, what we are doing and when we are going to do it.”

According to public records obtained by Today, Abby tied the knot with Josh Bowling – a nurse and US Army veteran – in 2021. The sisters – who both work as primary school teachers – have shared photos of the wedding on social media, where they can be seen beaming in a custom-made stunning white dress.

The trio lives in Minnesota, where the twins are from, and according to Josh’s Facebook page, he, Abby, and Brittany enjoy hikes in nature, ice cream, and snow tubing. His social media also shows he has an eight-year-old daughter from a previous relationship who accompanies them for family activities.

Abby and Brittany’s lives have been centred around defying expectations. On their 16th birthday, they passed their driving test – with both of them behind the wheel and their reality series showed them travelling to Europe, riding a moped and graduating from university with one degree each.

When the girls were born, their parents Patty and Mike were faced with an impossible decision over whether or not to separate the twins. Fearing the newborn babies would die or be left severely disabled by the operation, they decided against it and instead encouraged them to develop their own minds and personalities and live their own lives as much as possible.

When they got older, the twins were thankful for their parents’ decision. Abby explained: “We never wish we were separated because we would never be able to do all the things that we do now, like play softball, run and do sports.”
