Identical twins Anna and Lucy DeCinque spend “24/7” together and share the same bed, mobile phone, hairstyles, diet and even the same boyfriend.
But now the 30-year-old sisters have said they want to have babies at the same time “because our bodies need to be the same.”
The girls are both in a relationship with mechanic Ben Byrne, who is also a twin – but not an identical one.
Even though the two aren’t actively trying for babies, yet, they told Australian current affairs and discussion show The Insight their plans when they do start planning a family.
Anna said: “If I got pregnant Lucy would definitely get pregnant straight way — because our bodies need to be the same.
We would try to make that happen, definitely. We are not trying right now — we love children and kids love us, but it’s not the time for us.
“We would have to be exactly the same — even if we went through IVF at the same time.”
The pair shared their story on the show, as part of a double episode about twins.
Following the programme, the twins spoke to the Herald Sun (which weren’t able to say which of the girls was speaking as “their voices are pretty much identical too.”)
One of twins said: “We actually felt a bit intimidated by the other twins, because we always thought we were the centre of attention.”
The Insight investigation looks at what the latest twin research can reveal about humanity at large — for social and scientific researchers, twins are ‘the perfect natural experiment’, especially identical twins who share 99.9% of the same DNA.
The pair became famous after they were dubbed the ‘world’s most identical twins’ on a Japanese prank TV show, when facial recognition technology could not tell them apart.
The two – born just a minute apart – have reportedly blown £130,000 on cosmetic surgery to make sure they look as similar as possible
