Abigail Loraine "Abby" Hensel and Brittany Lee Hensel (born March 7, 1990) are American dicephalic parapagus twins; in other words, they are conjoined twins, each of whom has a separate head, but whose bodies are joined.

As infants, the initial learning of physical processes that required bodily coordination, such as clapping, crawling, and walking, required the cooperation of both twins.

While they can eat and write separately and simultaneously, activities such as running and swimming require them to coordinate and alternate their actions symmetrically.

Other activities as diverse as brushing hair and driving a car require each twin to perform separate actions that coordinate with the other's.

Due to the curiosity that their condition generated, the twins' progress as they were growing up was covered in a number of popular media, including Life magazine and The Oprah Winfrey Show.

At the age of 16, they gave an interview on The Learning Channel on December 17, 2006, in which they discussed aspects of their daily lives and plans for the future.

They starred in their own reality series, Abby & Brittany, on TLC in 2012.

The twins were born in Carver County, Minnesota, to Patty, a registered nurse, and Mike Hensel, a carpenter and landscaper. They were raised in New Germany, Minnesota, attended Mayer Lutheran High School in Mayer, and graduated from Bethel University in St. The twins have a single body with separate heads and necks, a chest that is wider than normal, two arms, and two legs.

At birth, they had a rudimentary arm between the bases of their necks attached to a shoulder blade at the back, being combined parts of Abby's left arm and Brittany's right arm. Abby's head tilts laterally outward about 5 degrees to the right, while Brittany's tilts laterally at about 15 degrees to the left, causing her to appear shorter even when seated.

Brittany's leg is in fact nearly two inches shorter than Abby's and Brittany tends to stand and walk on tip-toe which has made her calf muscle significantly larger than Abby's.

Each twin manages one side of their conjoined body.
