Mom of conjoined twins answers question everyone is wondering after Abby Hensel gets married

The mom of conjoined twins has answered the question everyone is asking after it was announced Abby Hensel had married.

Abby and Brittany first shot into the limelight when they appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 1996, a time when there were just six-years-old.

When they reached their 20s, the sisters became the subject of the TLC reality show Abby & Brittany, a programme that really landed them into celebrity status.

For non-viewers, the reality show documented the lives of the twins as they graduated college and set out into non-school life.

It was confirmed earlier on Thursday (28 March) that Abby is now married to nurse and US Army veteran, Josh Bowling.

A wedding photo on the Hensels’ joint Facebook page sees the happy couple pictured along with Brittany, with the twins snapped in a white dress, while Bowling is dressed in a white suit.

While the wedding news only came to light today, public records obtained by Today revealed that the happy couple actually tied the knot in 2021.

And three years on from the big day, the pair seem happy in photos of them travelling, hiking and generally enjoying life together.

And now that Abby has tied the knot, many people are asking the same question… will the couple ever welcome children.

Many assume because of they are conjoined, neither of the twins will be able to have children, but that is not the case.

In a documentary filmed when the girls were teenagers, their mom said they were keen to have children one day.

“That is probably something that could work because those organs do work for them,” she explained in a documentary titled Joined For Life.

“Yeah, we’re going to be moms,” Brittany agreed at the time.

Both Brittany and Abby reiterated their desire to have families of their own in the past, with Brittany previously saying: “The whole world doesn’t need to know who we are seeing, what we are doing and when we are going to do it. But believe me, we are totally different people.”

Abby added: “Yeah, we are going to be moms one day, but we don’t want to talk about how it’s going to work yet.”

Abby and Brittany’s parents, Patty and Mike, were given the option to separate the twins at birth.

However, they decided against the procedure after being told there was a small chance that both twins could survive.
