Being a twin almost guarantees that you’re going to get attention. From being asked to do Monday Night Football intros to wearing matching costumes on Halloween, people always love to speculate that twins might actually just be the same person. But what would you say if I told you that there are two twins in Australia who actually do believe they’re the same person?
Anna and Lucy Decinque were once called the most identical twins in the world. They even won a game show in Asia about it. The winning move was when the other twin’s face unlocked a door with facial recognition from the other twin.
And honestly—it’s not even all that surprising. The twins have gotten all the same plastic surgeries, and they wear the same clothes and hairstyle every single day. They really do look alike.
On top of that, they also never leave each other’s side. You’d think they’d get annoyed with one another, but nope—they love hanging out all the time. They even eat all the same foods at the same time, shower at the same time, go to the bathroom at the same time, sleep in the same bed, and you guessed it, even share it with the same man!
They’ve been dating Ben Byrne together for the last nine years. When they asked about it, Lucy said, “We have dated guys separately. But it hasn’t worked, because they didn’t understand how we were so close. They wanted to separate us, and they wanted to take us out separately, and we’re like, ‘No, we always want to be together.’ It just got too hard.”
But now, they’re getting some additional attention for their latest declaration: they want to be pregnant at the same time. When you start thinking about the logistics of this, it obviously gets a little more difficult than how they usually act the same. Each person’s body is different (no matter how similar you are), so it’s possible that one person becomes pregnant first and the other takes a little bit longer. It’s only realistic to see the difficulties they may face.
However, we can’t knock them for trying. They looked into IDF and surrogacy in order to guarantee their pregnancies at the same time, but it didn’t really sound right to them. They spoke to their mother about it and in the end, decided they’d do it the natural way.
Let’s just say their similarities might be put to the test with this pregnancy. Could you imagine if they both had the kid at the same time, and they ended up acting the same too? Talk about an interesting family.
Anna and Lucy share the same Instagram account, and they’re doing pretty well for themselves. With over 47 thousand followers, they are able to really market themselves as well as products for other people. Their lifestyle is a truly unique one, and I only wish them the best with this pregnancy endeavor going forward.
