Identical twins Anna and Lucy DeCinque share everything – clothes, hairstyles, cosmetic enhancements, phone numbers, even a boyfriend.
But now they want to get pregnant together. With the same guy.
The 30-year-old twins from Perth, Australia have been dating Ben Byrne for four years, and have claimed that they must have children at the same time as their ‘bodies need to be the same,’ news.com.au reports.
Think it sounds weird? It is.
Anna and Lucy have spent nearly $250,000 on cosmetic enhancements to look more alike. And the extent of their surgeries are very, um, inflated. They share everything from fake boobs down to fake tans.
And now they want to share pregnancies, too.
The two aren’t actively trying for babies yet, but when they do ‘it needs to be at exactly the same time’, the twins say.
They appeared on SBS’s Insight program on Tuesday night and Anna told viewers:
If I got pregnant, Lucy would definitely get pregnant straight way — because our bodies need to be the same. Even if we went through IVF at the same time.Advertisement
According to the program, identical twins share 99.9 per cent of the same DNA.
If she walks a few metres, I need to walk a few metres because we have to burn the same calories.
Our diet is identical. Our food has to be identical. The same glass of water we measure. The same size of chip packets we have to measure.
And, apparently, the pair said they feel as if they ‘don’t exist’ if their sibling is not beside them. They even share a super-king sized bed with Ben.
We’ve had separate boyfriends before, but they didn’t understand our closeness. Ben understands we want to be together all the time.
Yeah, it all sounds a bit loopy to me…
