4:42 p.m ET: TLC, the home of all things off the beaten path, is heading into new territory this month with “Abby & Brittany,” a look at the lives of conjoined twins Abigail and Brittany Hensel, who have miraculously survived to the age of 22 despite sharing one body fused together at the torso, reports Yahoo.
When Abby and Brittany were born back in 1990, the doctors told their parents they most likely wouldn’t survive the night. (One in 40,000 twin births are conjoined, and just one percent of those make it to the age of one.) But they defied the medical odds by not only surviving, but thriving.
And also snapped a self-portrait. Looks like Wall-E’s ginormous cousin!
