Source - THE “world’s most identical twins” Anna and Lucy DeCinque have revealed that they are planning to get pregnant at the same time with their shared boyfriend.
The sisters, who live in Perth with their partner Ben appeared on This Morning today where they explained that they wanted to experience pregnancy together.
The twins, who share a bed with their man Ben, 39, told Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford their plans via video link.
Lucy said: “We want to experience pregnancy together, we want to everything in life together, we’ll die together, we’ll grow old together.”
They admitted: “We may have to go down the IVF route.
“We will freeze our eggs at the same time, it will be a challenge but we just want to be the same.” ...
Anna and Lucy have previously had separate boyfriends but claim they are much happier sharing Ben.
Lucy said: “The first night we met Ben we kissed him, the both of us so we thought where can this go.
“In the past we had separate boyfriends but they didn’t understand our bond. Ben understands us and accepts us for who we are.
So your initial reaction to this, at first glance, might sound like there's something sort of creepily incesty about this arrangement. And if you draw it out, it really is a little off. I'm not sure Ancestry.com has a line that denotes one father for the separate children of two sisters, never mind identical twins. Which will make the kids half siblings, but also cousins. And since their moms have virtually identical DNA and they have the same dad, that seems to me more like their 3/4 siblings or 90% siblings or something.
But then again, I'm sure it's not all that uncommon for one guy to knock up two sisters. It probably went on all the time back when the average life expectancy was like 45 and women died in childbirth and men needed a spouse to help them run the farm or whatever.
If there's anyone in this equation I truly feel bad for, it's poor Ben. I'd give anything to have seen the look on his face when the twins first floated the idea and then started mentioning frozen eggs and IVF to him. Probably none of us will have such a midnight-to-six moment all year. But then again, imagine the pressure of having to pull off that quinella in real time. Getting them both in sync with their ovulations. You having to produce twice in a row and hit your mark each time, while the other is watching. And if you get a bullseye on one but not on the other you won't know about it for a couple of days and now you've blown it. No thanks. He's better off filling a cup to a skin mag in the back room at the clinic and letting the doctors do all the heavy lifting.
Anyway, congrats in advance. I'm sure they are going to be the best three parents two kids ever had. The crazy identical twins who want to be moms together and die together, and the one guy man enough to make it work. That is one happy arrangement for a guy who looks like Murr from "Impractical Jokers."
