There's nothing quite like having a sister with whom you can share your secrets, joys, disappointments, makeup, etc. And having a twin sister can mean going through the milestones of life around the same time. But two sisters who call themselves "the world’s most identical twins" are taking the concept of sharing to a whole new level. Anna and Lucy DeCinque from Australia intend to get pregnant at the same time and with the same man, according to FOX News.
The 33-year-old twins appeared on an Australian morning show on December 3 and told anchors that they're planning to marry and conceive with their boyfriend Ben Byrne.
When it comes to the best way to conceive, they say they'd ideally like to do it naturally, but according to a 2017 story on Yahoo! Lifestyle, the twins were considering using a surrogate or IVF treatments.
"It is a bit of a dilemma," said Lucy. "We know that’s where nature comes in, we can’t control these things. You can’t force these things."
While the DeCinque twins' lifestyle and family planning is certainly nontraditional, they say it's the ideal scenario for them. On the twins' YouTube channel, they addressed what it's like to share a partner, and one of the sisters summed it up by stating, "This is what works for us. People need to get that. We’re not hurting anyone."
